Postfut:


I understand the need for chit chat and I won't say they are entirely useless. They could contain hidden gems that could be useful for prospective test takers. Details here could range from the test date experience, psychological insights, cramming techniques grin or other mundane but useful information.


Anyways if you insist on creating a group, please don't abandon this thread entirely ensure to drop by sometimes to write some tidbits.

For the bolded I never said you were wrong I was just shocked at the conflicting streams of thoughts in one post.


Thanks brother for your suggestion. It's indeed best we stay here. We won't be creating the group again. Good luck to all.

Goodluck with your prep guys. It's worth every bit of the time it consumes. You should sort for other materials also if you can. I keep reiterating the Full Practice Test importance before the d-day. Don't try to ride the tour de france without even trying out the girod'italia. The idea is practice just well, refine your GRE skills, you would do just fine.

Graduate school seems like an investment worthwhile and the GRE is just one of the smaller hurdles one might encounter.

Gracias #Fall 2019. See you, well... Just do your thing and get those admission decisions rolling in come Spring.

I'm sorry,do you mean 4 weeks cause I saw here on naira land people getting their visas in two weeks or so. plus it says it takes 3 weeks to process a visa on their website.
and I don't think the visa processing time is a factor in deciding if indeed Canadian visa is difficult to get

Visa for study? Check very well. Even in 2016 the Canadian visa had a one month lag. It is one of the complaints they get and they have such issues because you don't get an immediate interview like the US.

And it is a factor because if you are rejected you will barely have enough time to reapply like it is in the case of the US.

oh OK, it would have been easier if am still in school I would have borrow a laptop but am no longer in school, however, have took the laptop to an engineer today hopefully he fix it soon or else GRE will conquer me lol.. thanks alot.
check university of Oregon they have Advertising.
Bayocanny, check for The Ohio State University. They offer full funding for the Communication Master programme.

If you are particular about ranking, they are 54th according usnews.

Acceptance rate is 54%.

I think application deadline is December 1.

I also think you can proceed to the PhD programme from your bachelor's if you have enough scholarly work. Check though.

Success!

Yildiz:
Good day. I wasn't able to come back and tell the house how the 2018 admission season ended for you. Well it ended without any admit.

I applied to four schools
Gatech - PhD Electrical Engineering
USC - PhD Electrical Engineering
UTK - PhD Data Science and Engineering
Oregon State - PhD Electrical Engineering (Data Science)

Basically my thought is I have a weak background in Data Science, so the rejects from UTK and Oregon State. A professor from Gatech contacted me and I was overwhelmed, then 5 days later I got a reject from them. For USC I believe the problem is they need hard copy transcript before processing application and I had delay in sending mine. Probably they do first come first serve.

My profile is
B.Eng (Electrical Engineering) 4.26/5.00
M.Sc (Electrical and Electronics) 3.5/4
GRE Q 163
V 159
A 4.0
TOEFL 105
Publication: 5 in Signal and Image processing
Work experience: 4 years in Power industry (Network Planning)


For Fall 2019 I am thinking of applying to labs that use signal processing techniques in power system.


Similarly this is to notify everyone that Fall 2019 application started yesterday for most school.




Good day,

Trust you're doing very well.

That's some massive and impressive profile right there. I wish you outstanding success in your graduate studies pursuit.

Meawhile, can you give a quick clue on how you ace GRE like daaaaaaaat!!!!! grin

Well, lately it's been okay. I had to just understand the importance of 1$ bills and quarters the hard way angry. This is International Students orientation week, with the Asians everywhere cry. But overall it's been a welcoming experience, UMass Amherst has a really small African Student population around 0.6 %. So I had to settle in on my own.

The campus is all about Building a community of dignity and respect, at least that's what the chancellor said last night.

By the way the campus is massive or maybe it's just me, and there's always construction going on at every corner. #Go Umass

I was actually surprised at that score to be honest. However, I didn’t do anything special apart from what I already shared.

Maybe constant practice and understanding why exactly I got a question wrong and work to avoid such made the difference.

Thanks for the initiative but I think a WhatsApp group as suggested by some would be much better. We can share information and study materials much more easily. I have created a WhatsApp group but after posting the link to it here, the full link does not appear here. So I guess I'll just message it to those interested.

Thanks to all gurus in the house who have kept this thread going and to DanjaNinja for starting this thread. I was preparing to write the GRE in December and started studying this August, but I have realised I wouldn't have much time to build up other aspects of my profile the way I would want to. Thanks to all for the information. #Fall2020
And if previous applicants made use of Whatsapp groups how will you be able so access the wealth of information here?

Please I need help in sitting for a GRE Examination.

I received this mail from the school I am applying that "Official GRE score report, sent directly from ETS. Please use school code 6652 to report GRE scores". Does that mean I have to register directly from ETS (via online) or any centre in Nigeria offering GRE examination?

Thank you in advance.

Quoran:
This is the first time I'm hearing about computational linguistics. It sounds really interesting based on what I saw online. Simply check schools that offer your course and then mail the graduate Cordinator about funding opportunities. Also check the Frequently asked questions section of the admissions website. You will most likely find information about the range of test scores required.

Register directly with ETS. After writing the exam,you can send the result to the school.

This is not entirely accurate. Regardless of whichever party he registers with, he still can send the result to 4 schools after the test.
