FAQs

Answer

1

While booking the center for GRE test, what to choose prometric center or the other one? how does it differ from each other?

It is better to check the individual center prior to signing up for the GRE test and seek feedback from students who are just completing their exams. Generally speaking, prometric centers should be better equipped than other centers.

2

What is WES and how it will be help?

WES is a non for profit agency that evaluates a student’s transcript and credentials and calculates a GPA (on a 4.0 scale). Many graduate programs have made credential evaluation mandatory as the admission committee is unable to decipher the transcripts.

3

How does the admission committee of a college verify the LOR's if they are from a general public mail domains (Gmail/Yahoo etc)? Also if I take the LOR on the letter head of the college, but the mail id is a public mail id. Will this affect the admission process?

Integrity and honesty are pillars of the US education system. Many colleges will give the benefit of doubt to the student. However, where there is a doubt or concern, the Admission Committee will contact the recommender directly. It is always better to at least use a college letter head if the recommender is using a public email id.

4

Which will be better MS in Electrical Engineering or MS in Engineering Management as per job scopes?

It depends on a student’s strength and weaknesses. Both programs offer job prospects – MS in Electrical Engineering will provide research or technical sales & marketing driven jobs while MS in Engineering Management will provide consulting, administration and technical sales & marketing roles.

Location is essential when deciding a university. When evaluating location, it is important to gain a perspective of the industries and companies represented in the vicinity. For example, if a student is considering pursuing a MS in CS, he should seriously look at Silicon Valley, Boston, Seattle, etc.

10

What do you think was the best part of your profile that helped you get the funding?

Funding is based on various aspects of the profile. Generally, the admission committee looks at past research/teaching experience, recommendations, statement of purpose and GRE/TOEFL scores. Communication with a professor helps in securing funding.

11

No it will not be stated. However, the I20 might mention that the student requires additional Education as a Second Language (ESL) classes prior to matriculating to the MS program.
