I don't understand why some of the posters said he couldn't get accepted anywhere. If I remember correctly, he has around a 3.0 GPA and scored in the 50% percentile on the PGRE. Those aren't stellar credentials, but they're certainly acceptable for some schools.

Someone said that only a third of PGRE test takers end up in graduate school, but that's a very misleading statistic. I'm aware of many physics departments that don't even require a PGRE score. The other two-thirds of test takers aren't skipping grad school because their PGRE scores are too low.

Some Engineers also take the PGRE to make it look better on their application I hear (from a friend who is majoring in mechanical engineering + dabbling in EE).

There wouldnt be as many engineers taking it for that reason if they raised the percentage of quantum questions to 20% instead of 12%.
