APPLICATION TIPS FROM FALL 2014 SENIORS
(6 months of drama compressed into one post! )
Hi guys! Hope you will find my post useful! I will be leaving for the US in 2 weeks times, hence wanted to post my experience before leaving. I may not be available to post once my US studies begin.
Spend 2-3 weeks making a master-list of Universities to apply to. This list can include 20-30 Universities. Check out each Universities and catagorize the them into –
You can read more about Safe, Moderate and Ambitious on How to decide which Universities are Safe, Moderate and Ambitious for me?
Each program requires you to complete a number of credits to graduate and you are billed as per these credits
Eg No of credits: 30 Tuition: $900/credit
TUTITION FEES= 900* 30 = $27,000 ( this is for the entire duration of the program, and not per year) You are billed as per the number of credits you register for, each semester.
This means that fees for courses is $27,000, excluding examination fees, living expenses, transport, mobile bills, shopping, etc. Annual living expenses ranges from $10,000 to $20,000 per year depending on where you live, whether you have roommates and lifestyle. Hence, cost of study is important while selecting a University.
Do not take University ranking so seriously. Instead of University ranking, select rankings based on your program. For example, “Best University in US for Artificial Intelligence” , “Best Universities for Biotechnology” instead of “Best Universities in USA”. However, rather than ranking, you should see what the university offers. A lower ranked University may have a program and coursework and research more to your liking that a high-ranked one. These rankings are based on a number of factors, so please do not be biased in favour or against any Uni based on “rankings”. You do not need to go to a “Top 20” University to be successful in life.
This is the amount you may spend for EACH university:
GRE SCORES: $25 (using $1= Rs60, this comes to Rs. 1,500)
TOEFL scores: $ 18 (Rs. 1,080)
Couriering of transcripts: Rs 1,000 (if you take FedEx, DHL)
University application fees: $50 to $100 (Some Unis do not have application fees)
Approximate cost for each application: Rs 3,580 (without application fee) and Rs 6,000-Rs9,000 (with application fee).
i. Online Application -
Most application stuff is sent ONLINE. Each University will require you to make an online account where you will submit SOP, CV and register you professors/recommenders for sending LORs, answer some . Transcripts will need to be prepared and couriered. Some Universities do not follow the online process thoroughly and all the application material hasto be mailed- including LORs, SOPs, etc. Please write down your account username and password, and do not lose them!!. Also, some applications will need your SOP to be uploaded (as .doc or .pdf, pdf is better though) or to be typed (that is, copy+paste from your Word Document).
ii. Preparation of transcripts -
To get your transcripts prepared, this is the general procedure followed.
Please, please do not open these envelops after they have been sealed!!!! US University protocol demands that your transcripts be untampered with and be submitted in their original form.
There are 3 types of universities. Please NOTE THAT THIS IS A GENERALIZED IDEA AND EACH UNIVERSITY HAS THEIR OWN ADMISSION STYLE. This generalization is made after observation and discussing with about 20 friends and seniors, also with one of my relatives on the graduate admission committee at Cornell University. I have compiled this list by inputs from all.
