  1. I'm currently doing my Bachelor's (BTech. - Final year) in Biotechnology in Manipal Institute of Technology, India. I'm quite keen on applying for graduate programs later this year, colleges like UCB, UPenn, Columbia, UCSD, Cornell and also considering Yale, MIT, Stanford and the works. I will be giving my GRE exam shortly and also have completed a 2 month internships in a pharmaceutical company and a premier university (Indian Institute of Tech) in India. I will also be interning from January 2017 at the Centre of Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB, Hyderabad), another renowned lab. I had previously briefly worked on a project in college to devise a diagnostic kit and am currently working on another (in collaboration with the Department of Virus Research, Manipal). I am hopeful of publishing a paper on the latter, sometime later this year. Being from India, I'm severely lost with regards to the requirements expected from top universities as mentioned above in terms of GRE scores, GPA requirements and lab experience & LoRs in general. Given my lab experience and a 8.5 CGPA (Indian standard) without publications, am I being realistic in considering these colleges for my master's? Would working in few more well-established labs and applying next year improve my chances?
  2. I have a three years BA degree with specialisations in Economics from a college affiliated to University of Pune, India. I was wondering my chances of getting into a good Masters in Economics Program(Msc. or MA or Masters in Economics) on a scholarship. Here are my details: Grades: 66% cumulative of three years GRE: 161quant 157verbal and 4 AWA TOEFL: 107 I am specifically looking at universities where they take 3 years bachelor students. Some of the universities I have selected are (McGill University, Boston University, Tillburg University, Edinburgh Univerisity, Monash University) What are my chances in these universities?
  3. Hi All, If you are an Indian you would know the struggle to convert your university gpa (or cgpa as it's popularly known) to a 4-base gpa. According to some formulae I converted it to 2.6 (mine is 7.93 on 10-base) and on another I found it was 4.0! My university is IIIT Bhubaneswar, a very young university (we were the second batch to pass out). So I am not sure how my gpa would be evaluated as even other private universities in our neighbourhood reward nothing less than 9.0 to almost 90% of the undergrads.
  4. Hello everyone! I am a journalist from India and have received acceptance letters from Emerson College in Boston and Villanova University, Pennsylvania. Expecting a few more responses. But, I want to choose from these two institutions. The course at Villanova is Masters in Communication and at Emerson it is Masters in Communication Management with a specialization in Political Communication. At Villanova, I can study the same subjects as Emerson. If anybody could help, I'll really appreciate it!

  6. Hi! I'm a biotech student from India. Does someone around here know about universities, or know a place where I can find out about them, that offer online learning courses to students in India. I am looking for very specialized courses and so not very hopeful on this front. Again, What? : Online Learning Courses by Univs FOR? : Grad Level, MEMS/Comp Science/Nanosciences/Syn Bio (I realized how impossible it is just as I listed these topics out.) Available to: Students in India Alternatively: Any POST GRAD courses in Biotech and fields that have an interface with Biotech?
  7. I searched everywhere, but I can't find a single professor in the US that focuses on Bhutan. i want to get a graduate degree in South Asian Studies, but I want my focus to be on Bhutan. Is this impossible? Does anyone know of any universities that have someone who specializes on Bhutan?
