  1. here's my story with vanderbilt case: Hello Dr. ----, I am ----(just first name), I am trying to find the status of my application for admission for Fall 09. Dr -- : I am sorry we are not able to accept your application. case: ooooooook, thank u! I did not even tell him my complete name, he didnt ask either.
  2. Drexel sucks guys, i got admitted in BME Ph.D and no news in funding, after several attempts i was able to discover i was not awarded non of the fellowships and scholarships.....u guys can probably email proffs for available RAship.....but drexel faculty are very uncommunicative....
  3. WTF is wrong with Case western. Everytime I call, all I hear is you will be notified by an email this afternoon. This shit is going forever.
  4. what happened to your GPA. Everything else looks great though
  5. hey, i think they have made all the decision over the email informally. the secretary said everyone should be notified abt decision today, april 27th. so check ur email later today btw did u go to open house? i am not expecting anything good from there though its my first choice.....i f-ed the interviews
  6. I recently got email stating I have been recommended for admission (BME Ph.D). No words on the MABE assistantship application. Graduate school wants me to submit financial statements to complete the admission process. There is no way I can join UTK w/o funding. What kind of funding can I expect from them? Searched all web and cant get information on this issue. Why would they accept a student when they cant fund? My application was complete like 1 week ago. 2 recommendation letters were lost over the mail and when i called to ask them about decision, they were like we are still missing ur 2 recos. Looks like they recommended me for admission as soon as my file was complete. In this situation what can be expected? Please share ur experiences in UTK, Knoxville, and especially the funding in MABE dept. thanks guys
  7. Whats the update on this? Did u end up paying Drexel ???? I have been in the same situation. I guess u got another offer by now!
  8. Havent been home in over 5 years! Long time I know.....will visit in next 1-1.5 years!
  9. I hope u get accepted dude, getting rejected twice sounds very awful and I dont think they would have corrected their mistake if the chances are that they have to reject u again. I see some +ve there. Good luck mate.
  10. I am waiting on Case also, my top choice, the rude and poor secretary has stopped answering the calls this week. Last week she said, "We have not made our final decisions yet. Emails will be send out by the weekend about the decision." Well, I am ready to wait couple of more weeks as long as I get accepted
  11. Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I am an international student; will have a US B.S. degree next month. I thought I could get about 450-500 in GRE verbal but it went terrible. Honestly, I am not offended by the question asking if I am an international student. New situation from my side is as follows: I have an option to continue in my current school where I will be funded $18,000/year if I join Ph.D program. But the reputation of the school is not that good. If rejected by remaining schools (TAMU, CWRU, UTK), I am thinking abt joining my current school (Ph.D. program) and may be I can produce couple of papers in first 2 years and apply to better programs. I will have to leave my current school with M.S. and I will officially be Ph.D. drop out. Will there be any problems in joining other programs when one is Ph.D. drop out? I cant just join M.S. program because I wont be funded for that and I cant continue w/o funding. Please share your opinions or experience or whatever story regarding it. In the mean time I plant to retake GRE and build a better application. Might be a silly question but how the heck do I improve in verbal section in GRE? I memorized about 1500 words (seem to forget most already). Its just that the time limit of 30 mins in verbal section seems to be really short for me. How did u all prepare for GRE? Especially other international students' experience might become really helpful to me. I sincerely look forward to hearing from you all and I appreciate all the help.
  12. Guys, I am in need of a serious suggestion. Please help. I am graduating this May. Have applied for grad school, 10 of 'em. I already got rejected by 6. I got accepted at Drexel University but w/o funding. I have emailed several professors asking for RA availability in their lab for accepted student but have not had any luck getting response. I am still waiting on 2 good program and I mediocre program. With all the rejection I got, I am not very optimistic anymore; aint really excited abt undergrad graduation next month either. My GRE was Q800, V370, W3.5; Institutional cGPA 3.95; Overal undergraduate cGPA 3.57 I had 2 good recommendation letter and the third one was average i guess. So, my question to you all is - Is it good idea to join Drexel w/o funding for now and hunt for RA when I get there in first quarter? I talked to one of the current Ph.D student and he said thats one of the options but the grad secretary said very rare cases are there when a student joins Ph.D. program w/o funding expecting to get funded in the first quarter. Drexel is in Philadelphia, PA. Its an expensive city and their tuition is abt $1000/credit hr. So, it will be sort of gambling for me. But, if funded it is one the universities that i would love to go to. Please provide your views regarding it. all your suggestions are highly welcome and appreciated. - Case
