would you spend your dollars if a professor replied your inquiries for PhD supervision with

"thanks very much for your interest. You are welcome to apply but I must note that it is very competitive.
Do you have potential sources of funding?"
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by triplemtrk: 11:01am On Dec 07, 2017
Good day great minds,

I mailed a professor for the prospect of being part of his research team in a Master degree program (although not a research based course).

He replied me with this:

Hi Mohammed - thanks for your email.
If I have any further questions, I will be sure to contact you.

Regards,
Matt

Pls, does this mean he's perhaps interested in my application?
Or can I mention such correspondence with him in my personal statement with the school?

hello.

I've sought for advice countless times on this channel with no response from anyone. notwithstanding I commend the good work done here by a lot of people, i mean this thread has helped me design a long term goal for myself prior to which the future seemed bleak.

I dont feel good in my skin as regards the standard of education I've had in nigeria and that is why i swore to go the way of sirRiddy et al ever since i stumbled on this thread. However, i have self-confidence issues as per applying for a masters degree program in the U.S due to the not-too-good grade i had in my 1st degree, 3.05/5.00, more-still i envisage a well funded program which i doubt this profile would get me. to augment for this lapse, i have applied for an m.sc program in nigeria hoping I'd culminate my academic pursuit in the U.S for a Ph.D. Meanwhile, i am a 28yr old graduate of chemical/petrochemical engineering.

I just want to know if this is the best move i can make with the grade i have.

Why not prepare very well and ace the GRE and TOEFL, then armed with great test scores, apply for Ms and straight PhD programs in American schools.
You can get into very decent programs with good test scores and this your GPA, what you need to do is some research (if you're really about this grad school life, you shouldn't leave this for anybody to do for you).
Finally, life, they say always gives you a valid excuse for failure - I'm hoping you won't let this "self-confidence issue" you mentioned be the excuse life presents you as a deterrent for reaching your potential. Keep doing you research bro, you'll get it soon.
You can check out msinus, gradcafe, gradbuster and schools' websites for information.

pls how do I rate my score in line with the ETS 130_170 grading system on the powerprep II offline version, cos I see here where people write their powerprep score but the software I used, has just 11 questions for Quant....or are those scores gotten from the online version?

Thanks.

Hi guys, how sure is the mastercard foundation scholarship for Michigan State University for a Nigerian with a high GPA(3.8/4.0) and GRE of 312? Please I need suggestion based on past record of awardees.
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by solastar2: 7:18am On Dec 09, 2017
First time I am seeing UST graduate on a forum like this. What year did you graduate. And to your question, try and write GRE and TOEFL and hopefully get a good score then I will advise you to follow the General US student visa forum.

What you used was the test preview tool, for a complete test experience just before you click start test,there's a drop down menu at the top right of the page select timed practice test 1 or 2, good luck with your prep.

Studies is going on fine. Fall semester course work and exams are done, I am just trying to get some research done in my rotation lab before the start of Spring semester. I check the thread but don't usually comment. How is your admission process going?

I'm glad you're enjoying your stay and research....
I'm still a prospective test taker. Don't mind me jor! I ought to have written d test some couple of months ago but I was a little bit lazy,nervous and scared. My reading pattern was epileptic and irregular. for me, studying while having a job are two parallel lines...they aren't adding up at all...boredom and fatigue set in easily...but glory be to God, I've been inspired by folks here....study has fully commenced.
I'm okay with the quant after watching magoosh tutorial and using almost all d recommended books in your tips. started studying for verbal and AWA 2 days ago...
Then, will do alot of practice test before writing d exam around March,2018 against fall '19 for Phd... still have alot of time tho!

I wrote my GRE today & it was below par.
I prepared majorly for the verbal & AWA section as I was confident in my quant.
My score -V150 Q167
I even had a better powerprep verbal score of 156. I just couldn't concentrate on my RCs. It was painful sha.
Now focusing on other parts of the application process.


Good day sir/ma, I am really impressed with ur performance, please u could share with me the materials u used to prepare as I intend to write mine next year and any useful information that I need to know, thank u in advance....... I am new here
