If you are planning to apply for colleges and universities in the U.S., there are few things you have to understand:
- The US education system is different than the system followed in India
- There are so many universities and colleges and every school is unique
- The application process at U.S. universities is not the same as the college admission process in India or in other countries.
The following comment very well suggests that this person is just starting to look into the US University admission process.
Can you tell me the minimum requirements for an MS in molecular pharmacology program, with funding?
What is the required academic percentage?
GRE, TOEFL, etc. scores?
Type of recommendation letters?
Every school has its own set of requirements. There are U.S. universities that accept students with very low or no GRE scores, while others require scores above 1,400.
So stop looking for the general GRE cutoff score requirements and start learning how universities accept international students.
If you believe that all U.S. colleges and universities have an average GRE cutoff score, well you are very wrong.
Each school may or may not disclose their minimum GRE score required for admission. The same condition applies to academic percentage, GMAT score, etc.
Some universities have minimum TOEFL scores required for admission. If you don’t have the minimum TOEFL Score, you may still get conditional admission.
If one’s academic percentage is less that 60%, almost everyone believe that they cannot get into a good school. But what’s actually correct is that you only have to compare yourself with top ranked students in your batch.
For instance, if the top ranked student in your class has 65%, then your 60% is not a low academic percentage. The above pattern applies to all the departments, programs and majors, not just for pharmacology.
