No GRE Universities in US


Some students prefer universities that do not require the GRE. There are several U.S universities that do not require GRE. Here are some things to consider:

  1. There are many more U.S. schools that require the GRE than those that do not. 
  2. You will have a smaller list to select from if you do not take the GRE. 
  3. It is not fair to conclude that universities that do not require the GRE are bad and those that require them are good. Not true. 
  4. If you don't take the GRE, you will not get your visa – FALSE. 
  5. It is true that if you lie to the visa officer or if you lack confidence during your interview or if your marks or grades are poor, visa officers may tend to scrutinize your application more closely. 
  6. It is better to take the GRE and score less than not to take the GRE at all.

You may still decide not to take the GRE. Students who make this decision gain admission to good US institutions. Just know the facts before you jump in!

Masters in US – Spring 2011


January 2011 seems far, far away if you are planning to study in the US. Seven months does seem like a long time but it is NOT if you are planning to apply to US universities for Spring! You must start right away in order to be successful in gaining admission. Take the following steps:

  1. Prepare for GRE, GMAT,TOEFL, or IELTS – depending on what test you plan or need to take. 
  2. Register for the test right away! Deadlines are good. It will help you to focus and study. Also, if for some reason you don't do well, you will have an opportunity to retake the test. 
  3. Don't wing it or go unprepared to take the test. These are tough tests and you must study for it. Scores matter!
  4. Short list your universities. What is a good US university? Read my previous postings. 
  5. Visit the websites of your favorite universities and learn about them. 
  6. Review all documents you will need to apply to a US university. 
  7. Think about finances and what you can afford. 

Students that start early have a greater chance of getting admission to a good US university!
