Nice that people are posting about their applications. Way to keep the thread lively and inspire fall2020 applicants and beyond. I remember the exploits of Scholastica16, drhopeful, femi132 et al and how reading their stories kept me going.

I applied to 9 schools for a mix of MS and PhD programs:

Virginia Tech (MS)
Purdue University (MS)
Auburn University (MS)
Colorado state university (MS)
University of Maryland (PhD)
University of Massachusetts (Ms/PhD)
University of Tennessee (PhD)
Iowa State university (PhD)
Rennsalear polytechnic institute (PhD)

Profile:
Program: Electrical Engineering
CGPA: 3.64/4.00
GRE: 163Q/158V/4
TOEFL: 104

I was a bit ambitious with my applications this year. Reason being that I have seen people with lesser profiles get admitted into these schools. I've put in my best and corresponded with professors in some schools. I'm hopeful that one of these schools provides admission and funding. I however have a contingency plan but I hope it doesn't come to that.

Hello Spanishmario, you are highly welcome to the house.Please Start your journey by going through the thread from page 1 grin after which you might not have need for tips from anyone.But if you do ask for tips,it means it hasnt been given earlier.First Tip for you, dates are important on this thread, as you go through you will notice a pattern - around January ending to Late March peeps will be talking about admits and rejections, around July guys would have migrated to another thread for visa interviews,and the remaining months you will find concentrated discussions on the GRE. But in all you will find this thready really informative.
I wish you the best as I wish myself.

For GRE:
1. Only use a few materials (Official GRE sources is a must) and be thorough with them
2. Take simulation practice tests only for evaluation of your weaknesses and speed and save the ETS official practice tests until when you feel ready for the real test.
3. Focus more on your weaknesses and work hard to improve them. Taking different practice tests without consciously working on problem types you missed won't help much or at all.
4. Keep a detailed journal and record your challenges and progress. Little victories will motivate you.
5. Get adequate rest before the main exam. The GRE is also a stamina test.
6. Endeavor to give back by posting here and this is a threat angry

Good luck with everything.

Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Quoran: 12:44am On Jan 10
No it is not compulsory. Just score well in the Quant GRE (>160). Many schools have stopped using the GRE Subject test.

If you are going for applied Mathematics especially something related to Mathematical Physics, CFD, numerical methods etc, you can be funded in a really good school. Mathematics has alot of funding. I also discovered that alot of people do not like Mathematics programs for Graduate studies because they feel there are few opportunities therein. With Mathematics, you do alot of interdisciplinary research.
Most industry funded research in Science and Engineering use Mathematics (Algorithms, Linear Algebra, Data Science, Optimization etc) a lot so they usually have funds for Professors willing to do research.

Mikkyboy:
Oga Quoran, Oga Quoran..........How many times did I call you?
Hmmm...........Let me tell you one very important but mostly overlooked reson why some people are not posting it here or saying - It is simply because they have carried out an evaluation of the strenghts of their village people. If they have acertained that their village people's network has 10G where others that are posting are using 2G, they will just lock up and wait until they have landed in JFK beforere they post GRE,Admission,,Visa and PoE transcripts. grin grin grin grin grin grin grin

Hello people.......I just dey joke oooooo.......Make some people village people no go cross border enter my side o..

Well for me, I applied to about 6 Universities and None has given me Admission.All PhD. grin
1.Washington State University
2.Baylor University
3.Louisiana State University
4.University of South Carolina
5.Brown University
6.Tulane University
I'm still thinking of applying to more if need be... grin grin grin

GRE: 304
TOEFL: 108
UG GPA: 3.3/4
PG GPA: 3.68/4
Publications: NIL

Just praying for now for successful outcomes, also praying for blindness to my village people's eyes to this post, though I know their network is not too strong(just 2G)....and i'm using 6G grin grin grin grin grin grin
Cheers guys and Ladies......Las las we'll all be alright.
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Quoran: 12:59am On Jan 10
This is really a good effort. The only thing that will stop you from getting in is if there is no funding available in any of the schools. I expect your testimony on this thread.

You will do well to read the thread from 2017, That should be from page 150 or thereabouts.

I didn't know there are a lot of applicants on this thread. I am seeing good choice of schools. Hopefully, Fall 2019 will have many successful applications with full funding.

This is your second application cycle, isn't it? I love your doggedness and determination. You have got it this time around. Just relax and hope for the best. I know this period can be nerve wrecking. I strongly believe you will have to choose from multiple funded offers.
