- This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
- There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Is anyone trying for a physics-related yet non-physics department? I'm going for 8 astronomy or astrophysics departments; I'm sure that admissions take into account that your physics GRE score won't (necessarily) reflect your ability to excel in the department since many applicants will already have shown specialization in astrophysics. Is anyone aware of some quantifiable adjustment that takes place? Am I the only one in this forum not trying for a physics grad program?
