  1. Hello !I'm a biotechnology undergrad and I'm applying for a masters in environmental sciences and sustainability. I've had a couple of courses on environmental sciences and technology and frankly wish to explore and learn more in this field but I'm stuck with my SOP and I personally feel like I don't have enough academic background(theoretical) or practical experience to backup my resolve on my SOP.As for a research question, I'm a novice and haven't really explored much to come up with a question. Here are a few things that I thought would support my SOP Presented a relevant research paper in class(effect of climate change on European fisheries and climate risk assesment) college electives - environmental science, environmental biotechnology, ecology and society Coursera - a few courses (in progress)(will the certificate be mandatory?) Project on industrial contaminant(napthenic acid) treatment and risk I'm not that optimistic about my chances but i don't want to leave without giving it my all. Any ideas?Anyone who'd be willing to review my SOP?I'll PM it to you (fairly new to this forum so I've to figure out how) I'm applying for fall 2021 and I'm already extremely late so any help will be appreciated ! Any info on unis which are known for this course will also be appreciated! Thank you! P.S :I wish I had discovered this space much earlier,smh
  2. Guys I need urgent help! I am applying to materials science and engineering department of texas a&m university and their application requires me to convert my GPA by multiplying it with amount of credit earned. The problem is I do not know anything about the credit system. My undergraduate institution (Panjab University) does not have a credit system and hence I don't know how much credit hours I have earned during my bachelor's degree. Also, TAMU's website states that "Total credit hours are the total amount of hours earned for coursework completed on your official transcript." I have no idea what that means! When i contacted them asking that "is it correct that number of hours per week = credit of a course?" they replied that "credits of a course are not credits per week they are the amount of credits for the entire term of the course". Wow *eye roll*. Please help I am freaking out.

This system uses solar energy, which is a renewable source of energy, to produce electricity, which is then provided to our “smart homeâ€. Thus, we are producing electricity for our “smart homes†with the help of a renewable source of energy, thereby, saving the nuclear and fossil fuels, which are non-renewable sources of energy. By the use of above concept, we can turn a normal city, to a smart city and save nation’s nonrenewable resources by large percentage improving our country’s economy. Also proportion of pollution content will be reduced by much large amount thus minimizing global issues of Greenhouse Effect, Global Warming and Climatic Changes. 3)Fractional Frequency Transmission Description: The methodology behind fractional frequency transmission uses a reduced frequency level for the transmission of the power. The frequency of the transmission is reduced to one third the original value i.e. 50/3 Hz. Now at the generating end, once the voltage level is stepped up by using a transformer there is a cyclo-converter system which is placed next to the transformer. The power then reaches to the cyclo-converter where the frequency is reduced to 50/3 Hz. The power at the output of the cyclo-converter is fed to the transmission line. The power signal then reaches to the receiving end where it again undergo a frequency conversion and the frequency of the power is stepped up to 50 Hz so as to make it usable for the transformer which is designed to work on 50 Hz. This technique reduces the electrical length of the ac power line, and thus, its transmission capability can be increased several fold. Please provide valuable suggestions. list- 1.TAMU 2.North Carolina State University 3.University of Wisconsin-Madison 4.University of Minnesota Twin cities(UMNTC) 5.VIRGINIA TECH 6.Michigan Tech 7.Arizona State University 8.Iowa State University 9.Ohio State University 10.Univ of Colorado boulder 11.University of Texas at Austin 12.University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 13.Georgia Institute of technology 14.University of Massachusetts--Amherst 15.

  4. I'm wrapping up my DoD NDSEG fellowship application, and just discovered that it is automatically removing the units from the "rate of pay" fields in my work history. I had previously entered things as $10/hr, $280/mo, etc. as in biology there is a quite a range of pay formats from hourly to per diem and monthly stipends, and my work experience falls under a range of these. It appears impossible to enter a unit, so numbers are shown simply as $10, $280, etc. Should I leave the pay field blank, try to pick a constant unit and make my pay rates fit into that where I can (although this will be awkward), or try to explain in another field what the unit of pay is? NDSEG isn't picking up the phone and I would appreciate anyone's help on this!
  5. 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?
  6. Which one should i choose for MS CS: Rutgers, New Brunswick, NJ North Carolina State University,NC Which one has better internship and job opportunities??
  7. I am currently in second year of my B.A in international relations. I am studying in India. I wish to go abroad for masters preferably UK or US or Germany. I am really getting confused about the courses links on the internet and would really like to have a few opinions on the best universities in these places for studying IR or Human rights. Also I would like to know about the scholarship programs available and the requirements for them!
  8. I am currently in a masters program in the US and have accepted to join the PhD program in the same department and in the same University. I am an international student and am considering to go back home during the break. But I heard that you cant return to the US more than month prior to the start date specified on the I-20. But I was planning on returning early to get a head start in my research. I want to know if I can return back early considering I will be in the same university and just getting a "change of level" in my I-20 or I will have to stay home for the break and return only one month prior to the start of the program?
