  1. MIT announced they WILL NOT ACCEPT GRE or subject test scores this fall! Anyone hear of any other schools???
  2. Looking for some advice/guidance on my profile for applying Ph.D. in Physics in Fall 2021. I plan to take the Physics GRE in September, but I am worried that it will not be able to be administered due to COVID . . . Has anyone heard about how programs are planning for this contingency? Type of Student: Domestic Male Applying to: Physics PhD (undecided concentration) Undergrad Institution: Big 10, Honors College Undergraduate Major: Dual majoring in Physics and Engineering Science and Mechanics Undergraduate GPA: 4.0 major, 4.0 total (out of 4.0) Academic Honors: Deans list every semester, several school-based academic scholarships and awards, several scholarships in physics and engineering out side of school, PA NASA Space Grant Consortium scholarship, Goldwater nominee (not awarded) Work Experience: Some private math and physics tutoring, seeking a TA position for fall GRE General Test: Q 170 V 166 W 5.0. (taken once) GRE Physics: Not taken (September/October) if available Research Experience: 2 years campus with mentor professor (published twice, one lead author), 2 summers at BNL in NY (published twice), several posters and lectures Recommendation Letters: 1 of them will be from my mentor professor and the other 2 will be from the professors who I took courses with. Would also like to use my BNL mentor?? Planning on Applying to: Penn State Stony Brook Yale Duke MIT Harvard UVA Virginia Tech Brown Willam and Mary Wake Forest Princeton U of Maryland Would love some input on chances, suggestions for additional schools (looking to stay in this general area) and anything else that may help! Thanks!!
