chessmaster22 Posted August 13, 2015 Share Posted August 13, 2015 Hi All,I graduated Fall 2014 and got rejected for Fall 2015 PhD from Berkeley, Stanford and UCLA. It was my fault. I was having a very bad day on GRE exam day and I submitted all my applications last minute (some recommendations submitted after deadline) and didn't contact any professor before submitting. I am planning to apply again for Fall 2016 and I wanted to know your opinion about my chances of getting into any of these top 4 schools.Undergraduate :University of Maryland, College ParkMajor: Electrical EngineeringGPA : 3.9 (a B in DSP and a B+ in technical writing)Research : Research assistant (nothing published)letters of Recommendations from good professors (Haven't seen the letters)GRE : 167/147/4 (Q/V/A)Status : domesticEver since graduation, I have been working at Visa in San Francisco as a Systems Analyst (Software Engineer).This time, I have enough time to apply thoroughly and I'm also planning to retake the GRE very soon.What do you think my chances are and what should I do? Should I email professors before I submit the application? (Last year I didn't contact any professors)Thanks in advance,Kia Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
