As with every person looking to switch areas of study from bachelor's to master's; it depends on if you can convince the graduate admissions committee that you are qualified. As an EE you will be strong in some areas (or should be) and weak in others. Nobody on these boards can tell if you if that will be good enough to wherever you're applying.

While it is possible to "enroll", various schools have different requirements for a Masters degree. For example, some require that you take the same qualifying exams as PhD candidates, others don't. Some requires that you get out of the gate running, while others will give you some time to catch up by taking advanced undergraduate classes.

Again, the self-test that I described in the thread will be a concrete evaluation that you can do on whether you are well-prepared or not for physics graduate school.
