Many schools and fellowships want the GRE scores for candidates.  How are seniors at BYU doing on the physics GRE?  I asked students to report (anonymously) their GPA, rewarding those who responded with treats.  Almost 30 individuals responded.  How much was the correlation between GPA and success on the Physics GRE?  I have subsequently asked the students to report on their service in the BYU tutorial lab and specific study for the exam.  Come and decide what single factor(s) correlated most highly with GRE success. Tell me what other data I should have got.
