Main Question or Discussion Point

Greetings,

This should be a quick one, and I would bet that similar threads have been posted several times before.

I decided recently to go for a PhD in physics, so I took the physics and regular GRE, etc.

I've been visiting a few school websites, and there's really no consistent format to how they present what they offer and what they're looking for. Also, a lot of the websites, including those for well-known and respected schools, are terribly put together and hard to navigate.

Does anyone know of some sites where you can simply type in a school and get information on...

1. Average GPAs, GRE scores, etc. of accepted PhD program students.
2. Other characteristics expected of applicants (eg., how much research they have done).
3. Size of school and other standard statistics (public or private, etc.)
4. What fields of research the school is known for, and what focuses are available for PhD candidates.

Thanks for any help you can give.

-HJ Farnsworth
