    I am interested in higher study of PHYSICS through PhD in US universities.

  2. Ram Sharma on May 29, 2012 at 7:43 AM

    I am Ram from Nepal; I had finished my master in physics from here. I want to apply for phd in physics from any universities in USA. Please help me.
    My profile is
    GRE- 311(verbal- 145, quantitative-166)
    But in ibt TOEFL I got only 77.
    Can I get scholarship and assitanceship from these scores?
    Suggest some universities which accept lower TOEFL scores.
    Thank you.
