  1. Hey Scruncher, I will be attending NYU this fall. Maybe we can help each other out as we figure out housing. That is my major concern at the moment. Best, Werda
  2. I have been accepted to NYU's Masters in Biology Program. I will be looking at apartments in Brooklyn and New Jersey. Anything else seems too far or too expensive. www.urbanedgeny.com seems to have good advice. I only just started browsing the web for housing options.
  3. Hey everyone! I will be moving to NYC or NJ to attend NYU in Fall this year. I am hoping there are more people on here who are in the same boat as me! By that I mean that they are as confused about affordable housing as I am, along with being super excited and nervous of course! I am going for Masters in Biology program. I am an international student looking for an apartment and room mates. I know its early but I got curious and decided to explore. So what are everyones plans so far?!
  4. Your determination is amazing. Good that you stuck to your goals even after the setbacks. I am paralyzed by fear so I missed a lot of my application deadlines. I didn't think I was good enough since I was applying directly after graduation. I have a scholarship deadline in May. Giving the general GRE on April 1. Lets see how it goes. Will I feel the fear and do it anyway too?
  5. Very helpful post! I would like to ask a question though. If you are an international student applying for scholarship that requires you to list your priority schools without any guarantee that the scholarship will apply to these on your behalf and you can't go on visits/tours to the country how do you go about addressing all these questions and concerns? I haven't checked your blog as a whole yet. Maybe you already have some advice on this. If you do please point me to the post. I have a month (starting April 1, I am busy with something else till then) to decide my schools and give reasons wh
  6. Thank you so much for your feedback. I am really grateful that you spent so much time on my essay. I will try to incorporate your advice in my essays as I practice further. I have learned that following the Princeton Review (gre prep book) suggestions sometimes bugs me as well. I wrote a couple with out following its instructions to the letter. Once I get the essay writing under 30 minutes I will post an essay here. If you have time please give it a glance. I have summarized your suggestions/edits into the following points. Please tell me if I am missing something. - Avoid starting with a
  7. Hey everyone, I am applying for a Fulbright scholarship to USA and I have to state my preferred schools. I did a Bsc (honors) in Biotechnology (4 years). I will be doing thorough research on schools once I am done with my GRE exam but any advice would be helpful. There are so many schools out there. I would like to be guided on where to start. Or if some one could just narrow it down for me or tell me of websites to consult, I would be really grateful. Also, what score should I aim for on the GRE exam. I got a 155 on test 1 of the PowerPrep software. I did the test at 4 in the morning
  8. Hi guys! This is my first attempt at an issue essay! It took me an hour to write this. I was following the Princeton Review instructions. I know I need to improve my time management. If I stop consulting the book I think I will improve. I will post further attempts once I get it under 30 mins. =) As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.
