i want to use this means to say a very big thanks to DanjaNinja & crew, i actually used the Grubbers guide to self study for the GRE and i got a good score in record time.The initial time i wanted to say a shout out thank you, i was banned for reasons best known to the moderator.

The one and only school i applied for in the US just gave me admission of my course of study : Petroleum Engineering Masters concentration even though i didn't have a degree in chemical Engineering/ Geo sciences or mechanical. i actually had a first degree in Electrical Engineering.

If not for anything the courage and can do spirit that being a popular viewer of this forum has developed in me.

I did everything by myself : from application to submission of transcript and i always used nairaland as my reference.

i say a big thanks to again to Danjaninja & crew, You will always be remembered by me.

Baba Seun, Tuale as you are the brain behind this entire setup.

As for the essay topic being word for word, it's what I find on the GRE site.
As for the topic themes, I need a clearer explanation pls..I don't understand how to group them still...
And as you've earlier explained in topic one to four you listed, are you trying to say that the same response to topic one still holds good for topics 2 to 4 for the different task instructions??

Also this was what was on the GRE site

(This page contains the Issue topics for the Analytical Writing section of the GREĀ® revised General Test. When you take the test, you will be presented with one Issue topic from this pool.
Each Issue topic consists of an issue statement or statements followed by specific task instructions that tell you how to respond to the issue. The wording of some topics in the test might vary slightly from what is presented here. Also, because there may be multiple versions of some topics with similar or identical wording but with different task instructions, it is very important to read your test topic and its specific task directions carefully and respond to the wording as it appears in the actual test.)

Explain the bolded sentences.
And yes I want to use your recommendation(initial post)... It's lovely


@Word 4 Word: If u believe so, work with that. wink

@Topic Themes: Yeah, u were right, the bolded says it all. I 4got to mention the variation in writing instructions. The arguments are essentially "for" or "against" type essays. You will be asked to support or oppose the essay thus the repitition of essay topics grin grin grin grin grin

congrats haffikem, the only hurdle left now is getting a visa. Just follow this link to get information from people who have gone through the processhttp://www.nairaland.com/1869186/general-u.s.a-student-visa-enquiries-part/160
By the way, when did you write the GRE, what was your GRE score and what school in the US did you gain admission? I guess you are for spring 2015 admission.

Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by haffikem(m): 3:04pm On Nov 16, 2014
i was actually given admission for spring 2015 but due to school demanding that the statement of account must be translated to dollar equivalent ,i was not issued form i 20 ..they advised me to defer till fall 2015 to have enough time for visa process.

i was actually given admission to university of Louisiana at Lafayette. now i just have to still hussle around to gather personal funds while my sponsor prepares well cos US aint no.joke .

the tuition no bad as from my research is quite cheap and still has level as per the course..7th or 8th n the US. tuition is per semester but there is opportunity to be given a waiver if you can perform well in your first semester and be a GA will be paid $700 monthly too.

but doulay....you gats pay first semeser tuition and GA is not guaranteed oooh..cos everybody eyes dey der.
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by dcutey: 9:20pm On Nov 16, 2014
wow! $700 monthly for GA, that's high ooo....i really don't much about GA and all that but i hope to get one if it's that high. I also plan to study petroleum engineering at fall 2015. Pls can you share the GRE scores that got you admission into university of louisiana at lafayette.....and why did you apply to only one school in the US?

Baba Seun, Tuale as you are the brain behind this entire setup.

Congrats bro. I have few questions for you. Did you apply to the school after GRE test grades but you apply before the scores was sent to the school. Also, how did you go about the reference letters? Scanned and sent or electronically uploaded to the school site. Thanks.
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by haffikem(m): 7:19pm On Nov 20, 2014
@denzel 360 it differs for different schools.

ground rule for GRE you send your result to the school when you see your result instantly at your exam center or you send later at a fee of $20 per school.

as for the recommendation letter some schools requires the recommender send recommendation via there official email. some also require them to fill online forms.

but ULL will require you to fill a form sign and scan to them.

Thanks
