hal9000_mark1 Posted October 17, 2010 Share Posted October 17, 2010 (edited) Hi all, I am an european engineer who is, as most of us are, a bit lost about what are my chances of getting into graduate studies at top universities. I will thank anyone giving some sincere opinion about if there is any real chance of getting into UC Berkeley, Stanford or UC San Diego structural engineering M.Sc. programs. GPA: 7.48/10 (not a great thing compared to the US GPA average, but on the top 10% of my year) Graduated from both Spanish top civil engineering college and French top civil engineering college. "Best Student Thesis" awarded by the Spanish College of Civil Engineering. GRE: Lets say Q 800 / V 500. 7 years of working experience in structural engineering at top spanish eng. firm. Some outstanding projects among which I've been the project manager of a european bridge record. 2 papers published in international conferences. 2 years of lecturer experience at spanish university. LOR #1: My boss, who is a faculty of my spanish university and who knows me very well, but who is not known in the US. LOR #2: Another professor holding the chair of "Bridge engineering" at my spanish university and who is a personal friend. He made some research after his Ph.D. at Stanford. LOR #3: Another professor at my french university, well known in Europe but not in the US. I made some research with him during my Student Thesis. Thank you in advance.
