Thank you to everyone that has posted in the last few days. We still encourage those who wrote GRE to share their experiences with us as that is the primary essence of the thread.

Get their number (s) from their website and call them up. It is better that way.
Thanks bro. Will do just that.

Scholastica16:


Trust me, I have nothing to say to console you. I just pray it works out some how some way in this admission cycle. I applied to UH too and I am not a bit scared to check the "applyweb".

Admission into US schools is conspicuously unpredictable. Take heart, only believe.

Thanks boss. You've been phenomenal. I pray it ends in praise for you.

I am still very much available here smiley

While i'm quite conscious of not coming across as being sycophantic, the positive vibes you exude in your posts can't be gainsaid; you are always willing to help and that's nice. Thanks for giving "grad school hopefuls" like me lifelines with your reassuring words. I recently took the GRE and it was a disaster, i was denied admission by the only school i applied to (a tier 2 school); i will be retaking by early June and putting in applications for spring 2018, i hope you'll be around to help through the process. All the best in LSU too man.
He's a great guy. He's been very helpful.

I'm so sorry. If you're still awaiting more decisions, I pray one works out for you; it has to be worth it in the end.
Cephas0009:
Good day Family... I got rejected by UH today. Checked through applyweb anyways.


I wish others a positive outcome in the end smiley

Thanks for staying through...

Congrats to those with success stories already and more luck to the remaining of us. In the last 40 days I have gotten an amount of rejects and wait listing. Six (6) decisions have arrive from both america and Europe (FSU, HEC, ESSEC, uni of Rotterdam, uni of Mannheim, NHH) and still no admission. I remain hopeful and I believe my success story would be the next post.

More luck to us

It is been a while I posted here. Waiting for admission decision is not easy at all. @Scholastica16 and others, please remain positive. We will get this. All that is needed is one with juicy funding. Congrats to all those with offers.

Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Scholastica16: 12:28pm On Mar 18, 2017
Amofum, Time2Smile, Miella and so on - thanks for the mentions and well-wishes. I am still here like y'all waiting in bated breath.

Amofum, I am surprised at the rejects as you have a strong profile but sometimes I think "weaker" schools reject strong applications because they intuitively fear that you would not even honor the admission if it was offered to you. Maybe that's just me consoling myself but who can say?

I am optimistic we would be raptured in this application cycle like our comrades in the race. Time2Smile's case is different because his profile is on steriods. grin

Congrats to Shayune and any other person who has received either an acceptance or funding. As for those who only have the former, keep sending emails to all constituted authorities involved explaining to them your plan for graduate study which must include aiming for a doctoral position (even if it doesn't). You must bait a fish to catch it.

I'm hoping faithing to share my success stories with you guys. Word to Andradaeze. wink

Ciao.

Edit: Ponpon where is you at? What's the latest?
