Chances of Admission with good research


Recommended Posts

Hi finished my undergrads in Electrical Engineering in 2008. I am currently working with Schlumberger Technical Services. I am planning to apply for Fall 2010. I need some guidance. I havent written any GREs as yet. I am planning to write both of them by Nov 2009.

I have undergrad %age as 74% i do not know how universities take them as GPA. The highest percentage was 79% and ranked in top 5% of the students. Besides I have a lot of research experience during my undergrads. I visited Nanyang Technological University for 2 months for a research project in 2007. I visited University of Waterloo, CS deptt for a month for research on Comp Nets. I have also got 4 publication to my name 3 in IEEE tier 2 conferences as WCCI, SMC and FUZZ IEEE and one in Springer Verlag.I have 3 strong letters fo recommendation from prof of good repute in the academia.

I want to pursue PHd in Comp Science and am in a dilemma which schools am i elligible to apply to have fair chances of admission. I have also been doing a lot of research on Comp Nets along with my job.

Please guide me. Also are my dates for GRE in time.

Taking the GRE by November is too late. I took mine the first week of October, but that was cutting it a little close. To be safe, take the GRE 3 months before your first applications are due. That usually means on or before September 1st.

Also, you said you plan to write both of them by Nov... if you mean taking the math and verbal sections separately, you can't do that anymore (in the US, at least).
