Questions from Mohit about Passport, GRE dates, backlogs in semester, deadlines for Fall 2011 and universities for Electrical engineering.
1. I have not received my passport yet, so have not booked GRE, but am planning to write GRE in December. Am I a lot behind schedule??
2. I have a backlog which I would be writing in December (I finished my regular college in JUNE 2010), the result will only be out in mid February, how much will that backlog affect my chances of getting a college?
3. I want to send my application post Feb only, as in any case before that I would not be getting my results and hence no transcripts. Everyone has been suggesting me to send incomplete application and send the pending documents later. Is it fine to do that??
4. Suggest me colleges with deadlines post March. I want to do MS in ELECTRICAL .
Passport and GRE Dates
You are doing the right thing by not booking GRE test dates without passport. For fall 2011, you can take GRE till Feb/March 2011 and still apply for admission. If you are looking to get into very best universities, then you will be out of luck. But, if you are looking for schools that accept students with GRE scores less than 1250, then you will have many universities to pick from.
Backlogs and Deadlines
I would recommend to wait till you get the mark sheets in February 2011. Don’t apply when you have an active backlog in your transcripts. Have all your grad school application documents ready, when you get the mark sheet in Feb, apply to schools right away.
