I am looking to go to grad school for applied physics next fall. I'm applying to mostly mid grade schools (University of Virginia, University of Maryland at Baltimore County as well as a few smaller ones) and I had two questions: First off, I came from a small liberal arts school where GRE subject test scores are notoriously low. I scored in the 30 percentile which was actually very high for the school but obviously does not look great for grad school. My question is given that it is optional at what point is it better to just not submit your score to the school? My second question is in regard to research interests. I'm really not sure what area I would like to do research in at this point. There are a lot of topics that interest me, mechanics, electronics, semiconductors and anything having to do with space to name a few. Are grad schools going to like a letter that says "I have a lot of interests at this point I am looking forward to narrowing it down to one in particular interest in grad school" or should I just pick one even if it doesn't particularly stand out as my favorite? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
