  1. I would like to provide some information regarding the reality of getting admitted to top 5 ranked Canadian graduate schools in the Computer Science Program. I work in the field and it appears to me that many applicants are not aware of some of the basic requirements to be admitted that are not overtly stated but definitely required. Unfortunately, I am unable to reveal my university or position as I wish to remain anonymous. Most of the time, you MUST have previous degree from a top school of your country, especially for students with a degree outside of Canada/USA/UK. This is extreme
  2. Hello, I was admitted to EE MS/ Ph.D. program (Systems track, information theory, system control etc. ) of a good university. However, I would prefer to quit after finishing MS degree, and apply to MIT & Stanford's Ph.D. I talked to my professor, and my professor told me that it will be harder to get admitted with a master degree. Also, I was told that it is impossible to be admitted by MIT after finishing masters. I think it might be because MIT prefers to admitted students from undergrad so that they could cultivate students from the beginning to the end. However, I would still lik
  3. Having gone through the application process at American universities, I have found the State universities to have the friendliest application portals. They usually have the same interface and one can easily go through all the pages/tabs/questions etc. The recommendation list can be updated any time before the deadline. More importantly, they send the recommendation requests immediately after filling in the details. The best part is the payment system where it is a breeze to pay fees for international applicants like me. They accept many, if not all, types of credit/debit cards. Not to mention
  4. Why's there such a great anomaly between the official transcripts and self-uploaded copies by applicants? Some schools encourage students to upload scanned copies of their transcripts. Others absolutely want the official transcripts to be sent in sealed envelopes from the mother institutions. What's the point really in official submission when the admission is not granted in the first place? This is particularly difficult for international students that are hard pressed at meeting additional requirements and have to negotiate bureaucratic red tapes. Waiting/delivery times are also much longer.
  5. When i mailed to San jose state university about their requirement for admission they stated that Gpa above 3 doesnt need a GRE score? But, whose GPA is less than 3, needs a score of 310. So, is there any chances of admission if i have low gre score than 310 and GPA 3.3, few online courses ? I am looking for Master of science in Biomedical Engineering.
  6. Hello awesome people, I am a senior who is planning on applying to psychology graduate program. I have been involved in research projects and also internships that greatly enhanced my understanding of the subject matter, and I believe going to a graduate school will definitely equip me better. I am wondering if it is a wise move to retake a class (not a core class by the way) that I got A minus in. It's not a core class but I have 4 other advanced classes that I am taking and I thought why not shove that A minus class in and get an A. My intention is to see whether I can do slightly
  7. I currently have 2 offers for an M.S. without financial aid (Fall 17) and I am waiting to hear the results from 3 more schools. My situation is - School A gave me a 1-month deadline from the offer date to make a decision, and if I say yes then I have to pay a deposit. After that, I will need to send a copy of my passport along with the financial docs for them to issue my I-20. - School B said I have been recommended for admission, and the next step is for me to mail in a copy of passports and financial docs for them. Then my I-20 will arrive with the official acceptance packet. They
  8. My story is that the research in my department did not match with my background. I worked hard and my GPA is 3.5+, but the research topic was hard to develop. Due to the slow research progress, I was then placed on academic probation, and was given a grace period to push my research. The policy was if my work during grace period satisfies my advisor, then I can continue, otherwise I will be dismissed from the PhD program. Since it was a misfit, I did not want to continue, so I wanted to withdraw, but the department still gave me a letter which said I was dismissed from the PhD program. Then I
