shocked So things like this happen!??

Overall, it is a well written piece.


I also did something different for my LORs

I used 2 professional from work (supervisors) and 1 academic - my then course adviser - from school (a doctor not a prof), these were the best people I could bank on and I didn't want the generic Nigerian professor LOR (even after several weeks of chasing them). I believe this added to my successes because they must have written glowing letters - I trust all 3 of them because I worked closely with them.
Yeah things like that happens, Some schools even request that applicant retake GRE and submit a better score.

You are right, One can make do with 1 or 2 professional referees in lieu of academic ones.

The institutional email address for referees is not compulsory for most schools in the US whereas certain schools in Canada and Germany would not accept anything else so one can still make do with generic email address. Although, if your referee is in academics you might want to talk to the referee because most universities have provisions for staff email but a number of staff don't avail themselves of the opportunity.

One thing to note is that the generic email address of the referess should be in the form of first name.lastname@whatever.com. This also applies to applicants an email address such as Adewale.Emeka looks more professional compared to ridsan4real @ example.com (Not saying that is your email address oooo)

IMPORTANT: The reason institutional mail is is preferred is not far fetched. One only need to read some pages back on this thread to see where potential applicant were discussing using fake referee email addresses. As much as I empathize with the hurdles applicants go through to obtain LOS, I am totally against this. This type of duplicity has far reaching implications. Apart from the potential pitfalls for the applicant if this is uncovered, the name of Nigeria has been soiled abroad in almost all spheres of life that blacklisting our country in graduate admission circle would reckless and imprudent. Sorry I sabi talk too much
Thanks for this. God bless!

Whatever research you do in your field would be the research experience you need. It is about being proactive during the course of the research. Learning experimental designs, methodologies, reading and researching previous literatures, understanding data analysis. Your supervisor and senior colleagues are in the best position to put you through.

Attending conferences, seminars and reading publications in your field also helps in generating ideas and keeping abreast of latest trends in your field.

Are you saying one must do an experimental research for them to acknowledge one has done a good research?
Those are the steps in research, which I guess all research must have

"Have the Educational Testing Service (ETS) submit your scores from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), aptitude portion only, to University of XYZ’s Graduate School"


This is one of the requirements of a grad program.
Please gurus, I need clarification on this.
What part of the GRE is/are being referred to here?
I have a feeling it is just quant and verbal, please let me have your opinions. Thank you.

"Aptitude portion only" does sound like Quant and Verbal score. However, I am not sure ETS sends only the Quant and verbal scores without the AWA. It might be the school way of saying they don't really reckon with the AWA scores.

If I am in the persons shoes, I would just request that ETS send my GRE test results to the school, they can take the part they need.
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Nobody: 1:42pm On Jul 02, 2017
Thank you.
It is sort of weird and I was wondering what they were talking about.
From when I wrote the GRE test, I do not remember having the opportunity to send
scores without AWA.
I will let the person contact the school for clarification. Thanks.
