It'll be best to Google "sample of LOR 'your department'" and then you'll tweak appropriately.

@Shakol91 You don't have to be afraid. The best way to conquer fear is to identify and confront your fears. Fear is an illusion, its simply False Expression Appearing Real. That said, What do fear most about the GRE? Please identity your weak points and draw up a study plan to address each weak point. If you find this difficult, I can help you by creating targeted study plans for the various areas of weakness BUT you must play your role by doing a self appraisal.

I like the group discussion idea but i don't think i have the time to fully commit to make it sustainable. I would try my best to contribute the best way i can. You can start by posting questions on areas of perceived difficulty. I'll do my best to solve them.

Thanks.

Pls advise me. I had a terrible GRE Score on verbal, 136,and with my current financial capacity i can only rewrite the GRE or register for TOEFL.

My course requirement favours Quants score more than verbal. I.e Finance and Economics. I also had 3.5 in AWA.

Your candid advise is appreciated. Thanjs

You got PM bro
TooMuchSauce:


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.

Bro 136 verbal is really very low.
That's about 4 percentile. And verbal score is not easy to Increase even after a retake. Increments is hardly more than 5 points.
Well, for you to get upto 3.5 in AW, I feel you may have made so many mistakes during the verbal test, which is common. And you may have prepared with inadequate materials for verbal.

I think you should rewrite the GRE, but give yourself more time to prepare. Maybe you can write first week February. However, this will affect your Fall 2018 target as you will miss many deadlines.

It is hard to suggest what to do exactly.
You can contact the program coordinator of your course and seek his or her opinion.

Hello All,

I want my former Boss to recommend me for my application, but he is saying he cannot use his companies letter head for me.

If i wouldnt mind for him to do the recommendation without the letter head, we are go to go.

I want to ask if it would be an issue for me during my application.

Thanks

hello.

that is why i swore to go the way of sirRiddy et al ever since i stumbled on this thread. However,

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

Don’t follow the way of sirriddy. Nigga is just overhyped on Nairaland. We in Kansas State University don’t even recognize him. Nigga can’t even pass an Advanced Java Application Development course. So just follow your own path. Study hard for GRE and as for your GPA, you’ll still exceed the cut off line of 3.0 after evaluation.

PS: I hope ruddy don’t quote me or I’ll rain fire and fury on him like NL has never seen before. angry

Look for another recommender. The letter-headed paper gives the letter a more formal feel which can sway adcoms.

If he is this protective of the company's letter head then he probably will not recommend you well.

PS: some schools do not mind. So if this one does not mind, then still use him.

Ask WalSpring etc

Or just pay it with a MasterCard/visa since you want it done ASAP.

Banks charge N367 to a dollar.

Nothing is free in FreeTown.

What schools have you looked at? What is your shortlist like?

See if you can compare schools similar to Cleveland State. They might have funding like CAU did last fall for EE students.

please can anyone here recommend a centre in Benin where I can register for my GRE exam between 40k -45k?

Hmmm.

Contact ponpon.

Be careful with centers and prices attached to them. You don't want to be ban and considered persona non-grata by ETS.

Good day Mr scholastica. Thank you for the great job you are doing. I noticed a lot of information on engineering and other courses. I will really appreciate it if i could get information on schools in the USA and Canada on masters and PhD in the medical line. Am working on writing the GRE in February. Thank you.

Thank you.

It really depends on the aspect of the medical line and the profile you want to present to them. That is the best way it works. For e.g, I could have recommended John Hopkins Uni but if you do not have the profile they want - or resources - they probably would not accept you.

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?


If it is not research he won't be contacting you bro.
