Which universities I should apply to without a Physics GRE?

  1. Aug 18, 2014 #1
    Hi fellas,
    I am in senior year of my undergrad and will be graduating next May. If I want to apply for the fall-2015 session, which universities will best fit me with my academic record?

    I have a cgpa of 3.87 out of 4.00 . I have not given general GRE yet but wish to give within December, but i need a university that takes student without physics GRE because I do not have enough time to prepare for it.

    any suggestions?

    You should take the Physics GRE. A school may not *require* it, but that does not mean they won't *consider* it.

    Mississippi State is the only school I know of which doesn't require it. You could look at engineering programs, they usually don't require it.

    Any school that does not require the PGRE is one that I would not wish to go to. You have plenty of time to prepare so stop making excuses and get to it.

    The University of Missouri - Columbia does not require the PGRE. I know of at least one graduate student who got in without it.

    Take the GRE first even if you have to delay a year or study like crazy now or whatnot. Since without it I fear auto-reject from just about anywhere (unless you have perhaps published a paper of at least semi-significant note already).
