Stati Posted July 11, 2021 Share Posted July 11, 2021 There is a ton of open points in your profile. Try to get as high GRE/TOEFL scores as you can. Regarding GRE, Q168-170 and V155- would be good scores for Asian students. Besides, you will definitely need research experience to get accepted from top 50. One of my Asian friends got accepted from outside top 50 with 2 decent papers. But the good news is ISI is one of the best Asian schools and has sent many students to the US. That means, once you have at least one manuscript along with a strong LOR, you are likely to get accepted from top 50 (Pittsburgh, UC-Irvine, UT-Austin) or luckily top 30 (UC-Davis, UF, OSU, UIUC). Try to find a former student in your school who has a similar background to you and see what they got. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
