  1. Hi Raghu,

    I have applied to UT Tyler 1 month back on 14th August,2012 for MS in Industrial Management program. I had a Google+ hangout with you and you told me about the application fee waiver. Am I still eligible for the application fee waiver.

    Kindly Reply.
    Abhishek Anshul

      1. Yes. I have already paid my application fee on 14th August,2012 and I am already registered in Hobsons’.

  2. Hello Raghu,

    As per the profile of UT Tyler at your blog the requirements seems to be very low. since GRE of 1000, TOEFL of 79, NO LOR or SOP. Why their criteria is so flexible?

    1. There is a video in UT TYLER microsite about a students research. You can watch the video and decide about the quality of the school.

      1. this isn’t the answer to my question. I’m asking you a the justified reason for this. As this university is advertising through your blog and you must be maintaining official document for the same. So, UT, Tyler , is walking on a different path . Even the 150 years old MIT is asking for the docs this university is not asking for.

        Secondly, if this is the fastest growing university “as video on yours website suggests” why there is a need advertisement.

        Hope to see a relevant reply from you. Not again a redirecting reply. My question is to you not to the university for which i need to go to some website and have a look over their video.
        As far as researches are concerns there; MIT is having Ford funding for security measure algorithm. So, be specific towards admission criteria.

        My opinion towards this flexible criteria is that they just need students As they aren’t scrutinizing the capabilities of the admits.

        1. If you think that they don’t have quality education then don’t apply. I don;t think the same way.

          1. Its not private school.
          2. It comes under UT System.
          3. If school doesn’t require certain document doesn’t mean they admit low quality students or a diploma mill

          Apple is the market leader is smart phone and tables. Why do they advertise? Would you even cared to look at UT Tyler if it wasn’t for the ad in the site or have you heard about the school before seeing the ad here?

          1. Again you haven’t answered the reason for first question. And i don’t think you would ans. Keep on advertising for the same.
            Since you have brought Apply into the discussion, Apple is Company who is meant to earn big profits; so its advertising and its necessary for them and the co. is not compromising with their products. You get the same product in same packaging and with same set of t/c.

            I’m not applying to UT Tyler by getting lured by such an unjustified ad and under such uncertain conditions.

            Answer me with a reason for low admission requirements.

            Dear Raghu, please limit your advertisements to the spaces on the webpages not to the content, information and don’t incorporate them as a part of your blog post/ content.

          2. hi yash,
            Even i am having the same question, but understand one thing all those who have good subject , general knowledge may not be that good at English. This university may be giving preference to those who are good at studies but not that great in english . there should be a scope for this kind of students rite.

            for this kind of students :

            the main criteria will it should be a place where they can showcase their talent and improve their skills.since UT Tyler comes under Texas state system it have good quality of education .last but not the least this should be a safe place ,no one wants to be at a place like trivalley univ .That problem is not there with this univ,because this is a public university under UT system .i hope this these point will be an answer to your question.

          3. Hi Abhishek,
            I agree to your reasoning but if they want talented students then why are they not asking for LORs and SOPs

          4. FYI – There are several schools in USA that don’t require LOR. By the way, how many students do you know writes LOR by themselves? Plus how many recommenders from India care to write a genuine LOR?

  3. MY NAME IS EMMANUEL OGBOLE. I AM VERY MUCH IMPRESSED WITH THE INFORMATION I HAVE GATHERED FROM YOUR BLOG.

    I SHALL BE ATTENDING F1 VISA INTERVIEW ON OCTOBER 9, 2012 IN NIGERIA. I AM AN ACADEMIC, I TEACH CHEMICAL ENGINEERING IN ONE OF THE FEDERAL POLYTECHNICS IN NIGERIA. MY INSTITUTION (WHERE I HAVE WORKED FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS) HAS RELEASED ME OFFICIAL TO UNDERTAKE A MASTERS PROGRAM IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING IN NORTH CAROLINA A & T STATE UNIVERSITY. MY JOB IS SECURED FOR ME TILL COMPLETION OF THE PROGRAM. MY MONTHLY SALARY/INCOME SHALL CONTINUE ALL THROUGH THE PERIOD OF THE STUDY.

    THE UNIVERSITY HAS OFFERED ME A TUITION WAIVER. I ALSO HAVE A WILLING SPONSOR IN THE STATES WHO HAS GIVEN ME HIS FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS TO PRESENT AT THE INTERVIEW. I EQUALLY HAVE SOME FUND IN MY ACCOUNT BUT NOT SUFFICIENT FOR THE TUITION. I HAVE FIXED ASSETS. SHOULD I TALK ABOUT THE SPONSOR SINCE I HAVE A TUITION WAIVER?

    I DID MY UNDERGRADUATE IN 2004 CHEMICAL ENGINEERING. I HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED SINCE 2004. I GOT POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA IN HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN 2008 AND MBA IN 2011. THESE QUALIFICATIONS WERE RELEVANT AT MY FORMER PLACE OF WORK BUT NOT IN PLACE I WORK NOW. DO I NEED TO TALK ABOUT THESE ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS?

    I APPLIED TO TWO UNIVERSITIES (VIRGINIA TECH AND NORTH CAROLINA A & T STATE UNIVERSITY) BUT VIRGINIA TECH DENIED ME WHILE NORTH A & T OFFERED ME ADMISSION. HOW DO I EXPLAIN THIS TO THE VO?

    MY TOEFL SCORE IS 92. THE SCHOOL DOES NOT REQUIRE GRE.

    IN 2008 I WAS DENIED F1 VISA. I GOT ADMISSION TO A COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO UNDERTAKE ASSOCIATE ENGINEERING. A FRIEND IN USA WAS THEN MY SPONSOR. I HAD ALL THE RELEVANT FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS/PROVES. HOW WILL THIS AFFECT MY PRESENT INTERVIEW?

    PLEASE I NEED YOUR ADVISE ON HOW TO MAKE A SUCCESS OUT OF THE INTERVIEW. THANKS
