    University admissions- Frequently asked questions

    Can i apply for universities without taking the GRE/TOEFL tests?

    Yes, you can apply for universities without taking the tests. But universities will take decision on your admission only after receiving test scores.

    I have sent xerox copies of GRE/TOEFL scores to universities. Still Do i need to send the scores officially?

    Yes, you must report GRE/TOEFL scores to universities through ETS. Sending xerox copies is only for fast processing of your application.

    when should i apply to Universities?

    Try to apply 5 to 9 months earlier than the application deadline dates. You would have more probabiliy to get funding if you apply early. In order to get admission into some of the top universities some students apply earlier by 1 year of deadline.

    Do i have chances of getting admission if I apply after deadline?

    Most of the Low ranked universities won't consider deadlines. You would have good chances of getting admission even if you apply after deadline. But this is not true in case of top universities.

    What is GPA? What is my GPA?

    GPA means Grade point Average. It is the standard measure of performance of a student in USA. It is similar to the 100% scoring system in India. There is an institution called WES. They will evaluate your transcripts to calculate your GPA and send the reports to universities. Click here to see the procedure with WES.

    I have heard GRE/TOEFL scores plays main role rather than regular academic percentage. Is it true?

    Most of the universities will consider GRE/TOEFL score rather than academics. Admission committees consider standardized exams, like the GRE, MCAT, LSAT, and GMAT, to make comparisons among applicants from different countries and different universities. Therefore if you have a low academic percentage, it is essential having good test scores. Some of the universities like University of Cincinnati will consider strong academic percentage of a student rather than his GRE/TOEFL scores.

    What is Form I20?

    A Form I-20 is a government form that tells the U.S. government that you are eligible for F-1 Student Status. It certifies that (1) you are or expect to be a "bona fide" student; 2) you meet our admissions requirements; (3) you will pursue a full course of study; (4) you proved to us that you have enough money to study and live in the U.S. without working illegally or suffering from poverty.

      I already have an M.Tech Degree from India. Is it possible for me to apply for MS in US? If yes, do I need to send the transcripts of both my B.Tech and M.Tech degrees or only my B.Tech transcripts will suffice? I have a GRE score of 306 and TOEFL score 106. Presently, I am not planning to enroll for PhD.

      Because of , the examination process is taking much time than i thought, i'd like to know about the options of applying for the universities before the deadline.
      do all universities have a common procedure that taking application and Gre and Toefl score seperately before they process the applicaiton?
      if i had applied to a university without my Gre and Toefl scores, what'd be the window i got to submit those ?
