Guys, nipost does wonders these days. I dropped an application to be posted to Germany at their office on the 11th of jan. The lady attendant told me it would arrive there in 2 weeks. However, on the 21st, the school mailed me that they had received the package. How incredible! I was really impressed. This was at a cost of N680 only. To imagine that I had previously paid 11,000(general discounted price) and 8,500(student price) on different occasions for posts to the same country through DHL. I reflexively yelled "f*** dhl!". #TeamNipost
R u for real? Am getting confused which to use.

@SirRiddy et al,
Pls you guys who have gotten a Phd Admission to US schools should kindly share interview experience/questions asked during the online/telephone interview by the universities before the admission offer. This is to enable some of us to be better prepared.

thanks

277 is a lil low, but u can check the sch's website for their GRE requirement, you would also need a good GPA, SOP and recommendation letter. However, if you choice is to re-write. Prepare for about two months, get the magoosh video posted via a dropbox link (can't remember the exact page). It will really help in your preparations. Don't be scared, be determined..."na small tin".... cheers

your GPA is good, some schools use your last two sessions only.

Hello everyone. Ermm.., I've been a ghost follower of this thread, well, passively but still noob. I feel its time I said something . I really commend the efforts of DanjaNinja who created the thread and those who has contributed in one way or the other. Thanks. In every way I can, I would love to give back to the thread too.
I will be taking the GRE mid this year. Preparing for the exam has been a bit daunting. Sometimes you've got so many materials and you just don't know where and how to start. Quant is going good. Verbal has been a rough one. I think I need help on that. What technique(s) can be used in learning those words.
Thanks.
