Testing Taking the math gre as a hopeful astro grad student

  1. Feb 23, 2010 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I am currently double majoring in math and astrophysics and am hoping to pursue a Ph.D in theoretical astrophysics after my undergraduate career. I am planning on taking the Physics GRE (of course), but was wondering if it would be beneficial to also take the math GRE. Would astrophysics programs even look at my math GRE scores? If so, is it worth sacrificing time that could be spent preparing for the physics GRE to study for the math GRE?

    Anybody have thoughts on this? I'd love some advice.

    If the department doesn't ask for it, expect it to carry very little weight.
