Have you wondered how your Graduate school application process works? Today, we are going behind the scenes with Kelly Moore, Staff member at Graduate School of University of Texas at Tyler.
After a student submits the application, Kelly goes to work. She would create a folder, match your test prep scores, then write a mini summary about the application before personally hand delivering it to the department for review. She shared lots of information that you can use to improve your admission chances.
The most fascinating things I learned about the University of Texas at Tyler is this Fact : Over 90% of qualified International Graduate Students get New Graduate Fellowships. Which qualify them for In-State Fees for first year. Then for second year students, they offer Returning Students Fellowships.
