How is it to select and apply at U.S. universities with an average student’s profile?
I’m taking engineering in electronics, I’m in my 3rd year. I’m planning to take my GRE exam. Can you tell me the procedure, pattern, and colleges I can apply at? I consider myself as an average student.
I’m not sure how do you define what an average student is, but for example let’s assume this as the profile of an average student:
- Academics – 60% to 70% (where class topper is 85% and above)
- GRE – 900 to 1,100
- TOEFL – 79 to 80
- Projects – Nothing extra than those covered in course requirements
Guide and Articles
- Refer to articles in the GRE Page. That will help you to prepare for a GRE test. Improving your GRE score is very much possible, that is, if you spend a lot of time taking practice tests. It doesn’t matter if you are an average student; if you work hard, you can improve your score for sure.
