  8. hi i m planning to take GRE on comming month……

    i want to send my score after finishing my exam….

    but before taking my exam i've 5 universities list…..

    wt should i do…?

  9. so we have to score 1500 out of 1600 in GRE to be admitted in thi university. What about the scholarship? What about job? What about admission?

    1. hi, I dont think they asked for 1500 out of 1600. If you look carefully then you will see that you have to add the score of AWA here. For example, If you score 1050 out of 1600 and 3 in AWA out of 6 then your score will be like this:

      1050 + (3+2) X 100 = 1550. Do you understand?

    I want to discuss about case, my situation is totally different, I am studying in Melbourne and I am not an Australian Citizen, my current course is going to be completed in November 2010 but I got my I-20 for fall 2010, what will happen if Visa Officer asks about my current course which hasnt been finished yet.

  13. I have got admission for both UTArlington and UAHuntsville. I have got scholarship of 20% Tuition Fee Waiver from UAHuntsville. But, now I have already taken Visa for UTArlington only after that I received Scholarship Information.

    Which one is better choice now?

    Both have my area of Specialization in M S in CSE?

    I am in doubt now?

    What does HSB suggest?


    Ajay Ramesh

      1. I have received The Presidential Scholarship which is a 20% tuition waiver that is granted to International Students.
        UAH I-20 Expenses says
        tuition and Fees: $16000
        Other Expenses: $10945
        I have also received e-mail stating as follows “The I-20 you received from UAHuntsville indicated that you should bring $6,000 for expenses for your first semester. That amount has increased to $14,000. The new amount will cover your tuition, health insurance, fees, living expenses and most of your miscellaneous items such as books. If you bring less than $14,000, you will not be able to fully cover the expenses for your first semester. ”
        UT Arlington Expenses
        Tuition and Fees: $12878
        Other Expenses: $12000
        Kindly, help me with this dilemma!

        1. Hey Ajay, I too have an admit from UAH. When did you get the Presidential Scholarship? Have you finalized on joining UAH?
