Scholastica16:
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?
cheesy

Scholastica16, I am waiting to hear your good news soon.

In this new week, our faith will surely speak for everyone of us.

Please, who has written GRE recently? It would be helpful and nice if you could share your experience here.

What's your major? why not also look at other schools where you can get funding?

How can you recommend schools for someone when you have no idea of his major or CGPA? undecided

It would be proper for HenryWilliams to state his stats so he can be guided, that is, if he wants. Also, this would enable him not to waste the 4 GRE score report.

Hello boss,

Which schools would you recommend for someone with a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering, CGPA 4.1/5.0. I don't really need high profile schools, I just need schools where I can get good funding preferably full tuition waiver and RA/TA position. I'm looking at Spring/Fall 2018 and I'll be writing GRE and IELTS, July/August this year. Please help a brother.

Thanks.

From your list,you need to evaluate your transcript for Lamar application which is extra cost.
Ohio state is a very good school,in fact getting in would require a high GRE score. They've a got good power electronics lab so you might keep that on your list.
I think you can look at University of Tennessee Knoxville, Kstate,University of Nebraska Lincoln,University of Alaska Fairbanks etc.
Others can suggest schools to you

MSc or Ph.d.?

Priority funding goes to Ph.d. applicants.

Why not a Phd? MSc applicants are finding funding difficult now, from my observation.

Anyway,check out OluDare01 suggestions.
However the onus of the research in school lies on you.

I am not an engineer, but here is my suggestion:
www.msinus.com- for profile evaluation.
thegradcafe.com- for schools that gave out funding to MSc applicants and their average GRE scores. Then you can bring your final list to the forum for the gurus to advise you.

Finally, scoring high on your GRE will help your good GPA a lot.

All the best as you prepare for the GRE and IELTS.

lol, i am new to this nairaland thing so dunno how to do that. You can forward my details to him abeg. LSU is slow so for all the people who are waiting lemme tell you, I applied in mid January 2016 and only heard from them in late April. So be patient. Chances are like 90 percent that you will get accepted because Louisiana is one of the three poorest states in USA, they keep cutting funding so they urgently need International students to bring money in. Plus the uni is overwhelmingly white and they try to balance out the whote-ethnic minority ratio and so on so ALL OF U WHOEVER U R(contact me if u still havent-lol), U WILL GET ACCEPTANCE 100 like honestly!!!Its such an easy school to get in but na real bush here ooooh.IF you dont have a car, u aint going nower.Busses run 1-2 an hour.Even lagos is better sef.lmao

Wishing you the very best. Please concentrate on the online Full-length tests to simulate the actual GRE experience before test day as the 4hrs could fly by really quickly.

When solving mathematics' questions develop the discipline to ignore questions that take you more than 1 min to solve. Always solve questions that you are 100% certain of getting so that if you have little time left you can guess the ones you were never sure of. Trust me, even though some questions contribute more towards the overall GRE score than others, each question is still accorded a raw score of 1 mark so the difference won't be that much.

Sorry to ask, were u admitted to LSU with full funding? I asked because funding determines our school of choice in this recession grin. Another LSU hopeful here.

Also, we'd appreciate if you can share your application/admission experience at LSU with us. Was ur admission for MS or PhD, n possibly your course......
