Graduate School Admission Process
Admission to Universities listed above depends on other academic credentials, TOEFL Score, Recommendation letter, Statement of Purpose and Resume without errors. Above all if students know how Graduate School Application is reviewed and accepted, it will give them good idea on how to prepare the documents and arrange them while sending the application packet.
I have put together two articles explaining, how college application packet moves between graduate school to department, how its reviewed and accepted for admission.
- Part 1: How Graduate School Application is Reviewed
- Part 2: How Department Accepts Graduate Students
Some Universities in the list might not worry much about other credentials since GRE score is 1340 is much more than the minimum requirements. For instance University of Texas at Arlington requires 1100 as minimum score for admission. But, that will not be the case with Virginia Tech or other schools from the list above.
Following 12-Step University Selection process will help select Universities in much informed way. I have said many time in previous articles about the process involved in University Selection is not easy. There is no magic button when clicked will display Universities based on the students profile.
Time has to be spent with each Universities website understanding the course structure, program requirements. We all know NCSU is very good school, but its very hard to get approval from the University to go to internship. I plan to write in detail about how easy is ti get internship, but how hard to permission from University to go for internship.
