Hello Folks. I can see a lot of progress here. A lot of Good GRE scores as well. If you need to retake the test, do not despair. Follow the invaluable advice from veterans here. It will help you.

Unpopular Opinion: Your Statement of Purpose is actually the most important document in your application when you are looking for PhD positions in the STEM field. When a Professor or someone in the admission committee reads it, it make him or her curious to see what the student has to offer. Though it is not a technical document but it should give a glimpse of the applicant's future aspirations and the reasons he or she is an ideal candidate. Many Professors take your future goals quite seriously. They believe that should fix your motivation to do a PhD. That is why doing a PhD simply because you want funding is not a good idea.

Your SOP should sell your candidacy to the anonymous person reading it. He should be curious about what you have to offer. Naturally, he will then quickly glance at your CV (Academic CV off course). Then, if he is convinced, he takes a look at your Transcript to see if you possess the prerequisite to succeed. i.e. Do research,think and develop ideas. He or she will probably want to see what a colleague or someone of like mind thinks. That is where you Letters of recommendation plays a major part.

The use of the GRE is debatable. It is mostly used to screen out applicants. Some claim they holistically consider all parts of the application. Since not only one person considers all the applications, there is likely to be some bias for certain aspects. How will you feel if your application was not read at all and just screened out because of poor test scores? Try and get a good score especially in the Quant. Most universities do not have a minimum score. Some professors do not believe in its ability to predict anything useful.Even if they badly want an applicant, you must satisfy the set minimum. Taking it is very important especially as an international Student. Everyone knows the GRE is a weird test in some regard. Doing well in it especially as an international student dispels some bizarre myth about certain foreign degrees.

There is alot of bias in the admission process. You cannot take that away from it. Human beings have that unconscious bias that they are not even aware off. For example, A Chinese Professor may be inclined to accepting a student from Tsingua University because he knows the school and will be skeptical about admitting someone from the University Of Benin. These things happen. Though Professors have to explain their choices, many cannot be questioned much because of their reputation and the grant funds they bring in. Put in your best. Take time to draft your SOP. Do not plaglarise.

Publish if you can and also try to attend conferences. Contact students in the lab you wish to get into. Trust me, they know how their Professors pick graduate students.

By the way, it is a good thing to know what your potential supervisor has been doing lately, in terms of research. Check their webpages or check databases and see their recent publications. It will help you in drafting your SOP or amplifying your areas of strength in your CV and SOP.

Cheers.

Spot on. cheesy

Are you thinking of studying in the US

Do you know you can study Medicine in US with full ride scholarship (full tuition, accommodation, food paid for plus book allowance and pocket money) *with as low as 1100/1600 on the SAT?*

Hi, today I sat for my test. It is a day I wished would never come because I always feel like I am not ready for the exam, finally, it has come and gone. I scored 158 in verbal and 159 in quant, I felt a little disappointment when I saw my quant score because I was ready for it, I had many twisted questions unfortunately. I don't know to thank in particular, so I say thanks to everyone who have contributed to this thread.

Hi all, I'm schedule to write the GRE on 4th of January, I have contacted some of the schools graduate coordinators, one replied me today, the documents he gave me showed that the application form is $100, cry unlike the others that are $20., 30, 40.
Is it because I'm applying late?

No. It varies from school to school and has nothing to do with application deadline.
