Did I miss any other test for Graduate School admission?


  1. I got rejected from MTU and SUNY Buffalo for the PhD application,

    really hopeless after a long stride of application rejection…..

  2. Hai HSB, u have provided me the wide description of many sort of articles>>> soo far. if u can pls upload the process of GRE fresher's to start up the preparation.

  3. hi,

    is TOEFL required to do M.S in U.S or GRE is enough???

    please answer to my question…its urgent….

    thank u…

    1. yeah I think it is essential for indian students, but there are some unis i have seen that waive TOEFL for students of some Indian unis ,so consult the websites of unis you have shortlisted, but as far as I know it is quite essential for all non english countries(countries where english is not mother tongue) because when you study at US or UK you have to understand the dilect and pronunciation of your professors which is quite difficult unless you have practiced during IELTS/TOEFL preparation

      Best of luck!!!!
