Graduate School Admission Process
Above all, if students know how graduate school applications are reviewed and accepted, it will give them a good idea on how to prepare the documents and arrange them before sending the application packet.
I have put together two articles explaining how college application packets travel from the graduate school to a department, and how they are reviewed and given acceptance for admission.

Some universities in the list might not worry much about other credentials since the GRE score is 1,340, which is much more than the minimum requirements.
For instance, the University of Texas at Arlington requires 1,100 as minimum GRE score for admission. But that will not be the case with Virginia Tech or other schools from the list above.
The following 12-Step University Selection process will help you select universities in a much informed way.
I have said many times in previous articles that the process involved in university selection is not an easy one. There is no magic button when clicked will automatically display universities based on a student’s profile.
Enough time must be spent with each university website to understand the course structure and program requirements available. We all know NCSU is very good school, but it’s very hard to get approval from that university to go into internship.
I plan to write in detail about how easy is it to get an internship, but how hard is it to get permission from a university to go into an internship.
