I am a final year undergraduate student from Anna University (India). I am very much interested to pursue my graduate studies at your institution. I have a percentage of 83.32. I would like to know about the minimum GRE scores for pursuing graduate studies in biotechnology. I have a GRE score of 950 (verbal 310 and quantitative 640). Will I be eligible to apply to your program?? I have great interest in biotechnology. I have strong profile with paper presentations and projects. Will these factors help me in getting a graduate program admission at your prestigious institution??
Response from Dr.Koury
Your GRE scores are not competitive for admission as you need at least 1,100 total. This is based on the scores our accepted applicants have had over the last few years.

Did you see how easy is to get answers about admission requirements? Thanks to Vicky for forwarding this email.
You can do the same thing with other departments. But make sure you email to the right contact person listed on the website.
Professors who take care of admission will have the information about admission requirements.
If you questions related to a project / research, you can send emails to particular professors but not necessarily concerning admission requirements.
