GRE and Fall 2011 Admission

Just wanted to share my whole time line, thought somebody would have some idea that how to prepare…

I personally hastened through out the process because I was also studying at the time and still I am. May be you would like to pre-plan to avoid such a mess.

When I was a kid from that time I was certain that I am a technology guy and I am not going to be in any other field. Till my 12th standard i was only knowing that I would be a engineer but wasn’t sure about the MS or the thing.

Then in the December of my 3rd Year my uncle (Cousin) from Los Angeles landed in India. At that time I was preparing for CAT. Then after I had a chat with him. Then he told me the whole process he got through as he is also a mechanical engineer (with MS in Industrial Engineering in 1981). Of course I had known that he has a MS but was not in a great tough with him though. Then I started having a serious thought of going for MS.

I decided in May 2010 to appear for GRE

  • June 2010: Started to apply for Passport, had some issues so took time for the process
  • July 2010: Applied for the Passport
  • End of July: Started studying for GRE
  • October 13th 2010: Appeared for GRE; Scored 1260 (Q-760, V-500)
  • October 31th 2010: Appeared for TOEFL
  • November 7th (After Diwali): Appeared for the Orals of 4th Year
  • November 13th (approx): Started the Documentation for Application
  • December 2nd: Started studying for the 7th semester exams Which ended on
  • 24th of December: Resumed application process
  • 7th January: All application with documents Completed

And a big Sigh of relief….hushhhh 😮

Now have an Admits from:

  • University of Texas – Arlington
  • Oklahoma State University – Stillwater
  • University of Oklahoma – Norman

    1. Although it is really late, one thing you could have done or might still do is apply to the universities before deadline and send them the score later. However, you need to check with the university first if they are ok with your late GRE dates.

    2. If you for CS get around 1300+ to be safe for Oklahoma state university which is good uni. Otherwise your profile is flawless.

  6. Kaustubh, u scored pretty well evn though u had just 2 months prep time.
