Phd in Industrial Engineering

Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone,

I'm applying for a PhD in Industrial Engineering and I am very anxious to receive news from the universities chich I applied (Gatech, PSU, Purdue, UFL, TAMU, U of Arizona).

I wonder if you know which are the average GRE scores and some other information that might give me.

I also tell you that I have approved funding (I won a scholarship that will cover the costs), I think my GRE scores are regular, GREQ 780 and GREV 430. On the other hand, I my University I was ranked 4th among 123 students.

I'll be waiting for your comments to know my real chances of being accepted.

Thanks

Not to be a bummer, but I think your GRE is kind of low (definitely so if you're an international student). The 780Q isn't going to be doing you any favors in such a quant heavy major, and your 430V isn't a good sign if schools are going to want you to TA. What was your AWA score? Just to give you one data point, the first time I took the GRE (with 0 studying) I scored 800Q, 560V, and 5.0AWA. I'd say this is about regular for top programs. This score was good enough to get me into the IEOR program at Berkeley.

The fact that you're fully funded is a very good thing. I hope you told these programs you require no funding. It might be the difference between an offer and a rejection.

Thanks for your response and congratulations for your acceptance into Berkley.

As I said before I know that my scores are not good but I still think that I have chances. My verbal score is low but it's because I'm not native, I'm an international student and I have read that the GRE V is not so relevant when you are international. On the other hand you're right maybe I will retake the GRE to get an 800Q. I got 780 the first time and I know I can score better.

By the way...could you tell me the names of your other acceptances?

Regards,

I actually got into Berkeley 4 years ago and did not enjoy the experience. I left with a Masters and went into industrial research. I'm now applying to Business School to do applied OR research. A number of my admits are very early in the cycle and I suspect the programs would prefer I not identify them.
