  34. Hello this is Shruthi,

    I have a lot of questions and doubts, so i will start of with a brief introduction about my self,

    Education
    I am a bachelors of Architecture from R.V.C.E, Bangalore.(1999- 2005)
    Masters in Social Science(Planning and Environment) from RMIT, Melbourne.(2007- 2009)

    Work experience.
    1. worked for architectural firms for 3 years.
    2. worked as a trainee in Cistup. IISc, Bangalore. (3 months)

    I am now looking a Phd in Planning field (Smart growth, Gender in planning, Mixed use planning). I am an average student in terms of studies, but hard working and dedicated worker and have been recognized for my outstanding performance by my employers.
    In my Masters i used to take 4 course per sem for visa obligation and used to give only 3 exams. Hence my GPA is less though i have got couple of distinctions and credits. Similar situation has occurred in my bachelors as well.
    will this be an issue to get a seat in the universities, will i be given a chance to explain myself as the best fit for that position?

    I had written my IELTS before joining the Masters course 3 years ago and had scored 6.5 (L 7.5, R7, W6, s6) so is this sufficient or should i write my TOFEL ?

    I have heard few people saying that if i have done my Masters in other English speaking countries i need not write my GRE as well is this true?

    Is it rite for me to speak about this to the professors in the universities i have selected?

    I am planning to take up my GRE next month and i am doing my best to do good
    so should i wait till i get my marks to talk to the professors ?

    I have got 45 universities in US which gives Phd in Planning course according to APA, but i am not able to skim the best once or put them in order according to there rankings or tiers. By doing so i can eliminate the bad once. is there any site which can help me do this?

    Thanking you,
    Shruthi

    • I had written my IELTS before joining the Masters course 3 years ago and had scored 6.5 (L 7.5, R7, W6, s6) so is this sufficient or should i write my TOFEL ?

      >> TOEFL and IETLS are valid only for 2 years. You have to re-write either TOEFL or IELTS.

      I have heard few people saying that if i have done my Masters in other English speaking countries i need not write my GRE as well is this true?
      >> Incorrect. You maybe be able to get GRE waived, but check with universities.

      Is it rite for me to speak about this to the professors in the universities i have selected?
      >> Yes, you should contact the professors.

      I am planning to take up my GRE next month and i am doing my best to do good so should i wait till i get my marks to talk to the professors ?
      >> Concentrate on getting good score as of now. If you have time, browse universities. – Check http://www.happyschoolsblog.com/roadmap/
