Good morning house, a quick update.

Tennessee Tech: Admitted; admission letter was sent early this morning and funding decision will be known in the last week of March.

Clarkson Uni: Admitted (This is a private school though): Some funding was provided actually but not enough, so I may have to decline.

Still waiting on Mississippi State Uni.




@bolded. All that's needed is just one juicy offer. I'm confident you have it already. Congratulations ma

Just ONE! Still hoping on LSU and Auburn for the offer too good to be rejected.

So if it is not with Auburn, then where is the transcript? You have confirmed that the transcript left your school.

My department did not accept it. I sent them an explanatory mail with the transcript attached oh. Fingers crossed.

I confirmed it left the school. I am disappointed they used Regular NIPOST that cost N300, I feel like I just got a reject from Auburn... Hurts in the chest.

I will be processing a new one tomorrow to be sent thru DHL, no time for jonsing. It should get to Auburn before Friday next week with the kind off heat I'll put on exams and records.

You can send a mail to the Graduate school to confirm the receipt of your transcript.

BTW, I am talking about Auburn University too. The other school got it on time. But with Auburn, it was late. I sent emails to the Math department informing them of the issues. Then I sent my unofficial transcript to them. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I have confirmed the issue isn't with Auburn.

You are lucky the department accepted unofficial from you. I mailed my Program coord concerning that today. Hoping for a positive reply.

For those that do not have much research experience, what should they emphasize during their application? Also, you highlighted writing an outstanding SOP during the application process, please, can you share tips? Of course, I know you are a great writer. But share tips for poor writers like me.

I pulled this (written below) off the website of one of the schools I applied to - Auburn University. I also lack research experience but talked more about my work experience and luckily, it was closely related to what i was applying for.

Personal Statements

1. Convince your audience that you have what it takes to succeed in graduate school.

2. Demonstrate that you have the ability to be a good follower (someone who takes directions and criticism well) and a leader (someone who can work independently and guide others).

3. Provide evidence that you are motivated and eager to learn.

4. Show that you are familiar with the program to which you are applying and that you are a good fit.

5. Prove to your readers that you will be successful and that you’ll complete the program on time.

6. Proofread: Typographical errors and grammatical mistakes can undermine your best efforts.

cheesy cheesy cheesy
I once used NIPOST registered mail and it cost me #400
My transcript was delivered to the US after 7 working days

You are lucky! Mine hasn't been received, I have considered it lost in transit.


andradaeze:

My dear, anytime I think of my transcript travails during this process, I get upset. I requested for two transcripts from my school and paid 40k for the transcripts and the transcripts got to the USA a month and a week later.

If yours got to the US on time without causing any irredeemable damage. You should be happy oh.

There has already been damage by my calculations, Processing and sending transcript form naija, fastest is 2 weeks. Auburn says 2 weeks is needed to process it after it lands. Rolling admission is done by the dept and financial support is allocated mid-April. When will I be offered admission and considered for funding?

Congratulations ElDeeVee and Fredoricko, more good news coming in.

Fredoricko, try hijack some money from these schools na.


@House, I have been quite busy of recent that's why I haven't been turning up here. I have a question - How many years days/weeks does it take for a 'NIPOST transcript' to be delivered to the US?


I processed 2 transcripts to be sent on the 27th of January, 1 was delivered to the U.S 3 days later and I just discovered today that the second transcript I also paid to be 'DHL'd' was sent by Nipost 23days after the first one was sent. embarassed embarassed

This is my profile... If UofH could accept and gimme money, There is hope for everyone.


Applied for Industrial Eng Msc

Undergraduate: Mechanical Eng, 3.77/5.00. Naija degree.

Final year semesters where above 4.0 & very close to 5.0 for 1st and 2nd semesters respectively showing great improvement over the 2.9x 4th year 1st semester (dad was sick, my g.p nosedived and I explained it in my SOP).

GRE: 155V, 163Q, 4.0AWA. I had to re-write it, improved across board.
TOEFL: 106 – R28, L26, S26, W26

Internship: 6months highly related experience, Got 1 out of 2 available engineering positions. Up to 500 applicants.

No research experience

Work Experience: 12 months highly related internship exp, 3.5 years highly related work experience. I could easily relate my experiences to 2 different specializations I chose.

Recommendations: 1 academic, 2 professional I got away with this. The professional recommenders very likely did an excellent job.

Resume: Was more work inclined, several leadership roles at work and ones I was forced to accept in school and nysc.

No mention of funding in my SOP.

No contact with anyone in any of the schools, except mailing the grad schools for clarifications.

Finished my applications between 1st and 2nd week of January, most of the schools are still receiving applications till now. Got 3 acceptances all in February. All came with some sort of funding.

Topiipii:

Graduate coordinator for Colostate mailed me, I'd have to apply for TA or email individual faculty for RA. Any update from your end?

In state waiver on all 3 admits.

Will contact faculty individually for assistantship from tomorrow.

@House. Any sense in mailing Tamuk faculty for GA,TA,RA? My interest has shifted to the most recent admit - UofH.

Will be back to drop my profile + why I feel I got all d admits.

A school known for holding their money tight gave me funding.... I am overwhelmed. Tier 1 Uni #TexasIsCalling


UofH was where I had the least expectation, I wasn't even expecting an admission from them but got it with some tuition waiver.
