Hey, I'm from Poland currently doing undergraduate studying. Now I have a few questions regarding studying in USA. In my country undergraduate course is only 3.5 year and then we have 1.5 year of graduate program. When should I apply to graduate program in the USA? I mean after 3.5 year I will already have a engineering title in physic and could do 1.5 year graduate program to become a M.S. I just don’t know if I could apply for graduate course after only 3.5 year course. Now I’m thinking of doing either Condensed Matter or Medical Physic. Right now I have options for great research in both discipline. What I’m wondering is how hard is it for a international student to get into a graduate course in this subjects? I mean I can’t compete with people from English speaking countries in GRE general (writing and verbal) but I’m confident I could get around 90-100% from the mathematic-logic part. I was trying also Physic GRE and it seems quite easy with some studying I could do 80-90%. I have GPA around 4.5 out of 5. TOEFL seems quite easy for me but this GRE general is not that easy. So what chances do I stand for graduate courses? Last question is whether is it more expensive to study in USA for a international student than for a USA citizens? I’ve read some diverse opinions about it. How easy is it to get a scholarship? Thanks for all the answers.
