    Below is my profile

    GRE – 297
    TOEFL –88
    Graduation– 81.07% aggregate ( No Backlogs)

    I am planning for Spring 2014 and have not yet applied to any universities. I am basically from a electronics and telecommunication background, but I am planning to pursue MS in CS( not sure though) . I also have 2 years of professional experience in IT in the field of software testing.
    Could you please evaluate my profile and suggest if its really late for Spring 2014 and if scores are good enough to fetch me a decent university at US.

    Oh my gosh, yes! Better than sending them to Delhi or Nagpur.
    Feel so sad for the geeks asking questions on whether that score is going to get them admission.

    can you give any information on PhD fellowships and scholarships offered in life sciences?

    • Dr. Wolf on July 23, 2013 at 10:08 AM

      Sorry – at UT Tyler we only have PhD in Nursing and Human Resource Development

  6. Dr. Wolf on July 19, 2013 at 5:03 PM

    If you meet or exceed the profile posted below, we encourage you to apply to The University of Texas at Tyler Graduate School. A GRE of 288 is a bit low for CS – you should retake it for a higher score.

    GRE – 300
    TOEFL – 79
    IELTS – 6.5 and 6 or greater in all subsections
    GPA – 3.0 No Backlogs/All Backlogs cleared
