Maths departments that take the Physics GRE?

Postby minovsky » Sun Apr 29, 2012 1:19 pm

Does anybody know of maths departments which will take the Physics GRE instead of the Maths GRE? I've already taken the physics test, so I don't want to take the maths one if I don't have to (standardized tests are expensive and are no-fun). I'm mostly a physics guy, but I've found that some maths departments may have more what I'm looking for in terms of research (e.g. fluids, gravity). The ones I've found so far are:

UNC-CH
NYU
Brown

Any others I'm not aware of?

If I remember correctly, the Princeton PACM also lets you use the Physics GRE instead of Maths. Generally speaking, applied maths departments that are institutionally separated from the pure maths departments tend to be a lot more lenient about the math GRE. Indeed, many of them, even at several fairly selective schools, don't require the subject GRE at all.
