When to take the GRE Physics

Post by astrofan » Tue Feb 12, 2008 2:12 am


Sorry if this has been asked before or is in the wrong section.

I was wondering if anyone had any data on weather students do better/worse on the GRE physics if they take a year off between undergrad and grad school, compared to those who take it during their senior year in college?

well, I don't have data on it but I'm thinking... if you spend the year studying you'll probably do better. If you spend the year doing anything besides physics, you will do worse.
