Who in the house has ever submitted an application to the University of Texas, Dallas.

I'd like to know if you paid the $50 fee for credential evaluation after being admission offer or did you pay during the formal application?
Before admission. They sum up the evaluation fee with the application fee, meaning you'll be paying $100.

Good morning house, I need suggestion on safe schools I can send my application to. Below is my profile

B.Sc(Geology) - 3.86/5
M.Sc (Petroleum geosciences) - 4.84/5
4 years relevant experience in the petroleum industry
One publication on petroleum geochemistry
GRE..Verbal-143, Quanti - 149 and AW - 3.0

Course: PhD Geology or M.Sc in Environmental science or GIS (I am seriously considering a slight change in career path)
I was considering University of Nebraska@ Lincoln (POI not very certain due to my GRE score but still encouraged me to apply hoping other factors will be fully considered), Southern Illinios University@carbondale (Still yet to get a POI) and University of Texas @ ElPaso (Still yet to get a POI).

Any advice or suggestion on way forward. thanks

Bro, based on your GRE score e get as e be oooo.But then do the work yourself, go to msinus.com and do alittle more research, most importantly get POI interest in you before applying.If you are a small OBO you can just shoot applications even without POI consent, you might get admitted with even funding. We have experiences like that here on this forum.

PS: Strong men are currently in the Lab I guess but they still find out time to reach here...lets hope they branch here during the holidays grin grin grin grin wink cheesy

I was in the same boat! To save my time I hired local tutor and found one reliable BuyEssay writing service to cope with all those paper works. These guys helped me to write my essay and get the highest score in the class. Now I know that I can always rely on their help.

Glad to see another Geoscientist!!!
Mikkyboy has given you good advise. Your GRE is actually low. Make use of msinus and gradecafe to evaluate your profile. Also check those schools to ensure they carry out research in Environmental Geology. Then contact professors of interest. Their response may give you a better idea of whether to go on to apply or if you'll need to rewrite the GRE.

But I'll advise that you refire the GRE, at least it gets you better school options and the possibility of being funded.
Al the best!!!

Hello House.

Permit me to make this post. I would like to advice all applicants, to ensure that they make application fee payment themselves. In fact if someone would have to pay for you because of financial constraints, unfavorable exchange rate or whatever PLEASE ENSURE IT IS SOMEONE YOU KNOW VERY WELL. I have discovered that some people exploit this application payment thing to SCAM fellow Nigerians. Recently, I logged unto my application portal and discovered my APPLICATION WAS WITHDRAWN BEFORE DECISION WAS MADE. Upon mailing the grad cord. She told me I went to the bank to revert the payment, and thus my application is null.

I was all over the place. Apparently, the person I asked to make the payment for me had other ideas about how to double his gain. This is very bad because I loose in two ways; A bad reputation with the school and wasted resources in terms of scores, transcript and recommendation sent.

I believe my post will save an APPLICANT OUT THERE, because recently this same thing happened to my friend. Different agent made payment, but the same end game. Let us consider future generations and future applicants. WHAT IF NIGERIANS GET BLACK LISTED FROM US SCHOOLS?.

Someone might say that is not possible, But do a search and you will discover there is a list of countries that US schools are skeptical and wary of, whenever a citizen makes an application from them. Nigerians are already perceived as dubious, con stars and fraudsters.

PLEASE, I BEG THOSE PERPETRATING THESE KIND OF EGREGIOUS AND UNNERVING ACTIONS TO STOP!!!

let us restore the GOOD OLD DAYS OF INTEGRITY......Pay that application fee yoursefl!! embarassed undecided lipsrsealed

I wish everyone success, admission and funding come 2019.

So unfortunate, hope all is not lost? cry I should add to your warning that there is a popular Nigerian criminal tendency of paying online fees and charges for others with stolen credit cards, of which it is the unsuspecting victim (not the owner of the card) that gets blacklisted and would appear as the criminal/thief. The reason I am leery of many massive discounted payment offers of standard fees from organizations that clearly do not provide any such discounts.

Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Bassmana: 3:40pm On Dec 22, 2018
Hey, most of the schools consider the last 60 credit hours (i.e. last two years). So, it depends on when you had those Fs. However, I think WES wil use the new grades you got when you retook the courses (I do not know much about WES). Better answers on the way from the experienced

Thanks CptCharlesVane.
Not all is lost, I still have a couple. Although my friend is on the verge of missing out on two schools or more.
Yes, your addition is very valid. Including GRE and TOEFL payments. We all have to be careful.

Sound of warning! What happened was just so unfortunately. Guys beware.

However, there are many good folks here willing to render the unimaginable help just to see their fellow country men excel, you just happened to meet the wrong person.

Be that as it may, no amount of plead will stop the bad guys from doing what they do best, lol..... They are needed to balance the universe.. smile. On a final note, as jegz50 said, know who you trust with your hard earned money.

I don't think changing the password is enough to forestall such acts. Once the perpetrator goes to the bank to revert the transaction, there is bound to be a problem, unless the school is magnanimous enough to inform the applicant before withdrawing the application.

I believe there are still some honest and good persons out there.....but, wowww.....chances can't be taken. OVERLY RISKY

Since you need the login details to pay, I think you would need same details to reverse or cancel the application. I still believe a good step is to change the login details, I mean the password
