MS in US – The Guide

DISCLAIMER: The content written in every article is purely based on my personal experience. Some points maybe unsupported and I assure you that these won’t, in any possible way, make your experience adverse.

I’ll try to be as specific as I can in the writing, leaving out the less important details. Each of the following posts will have two parts –
i)  My Experience (Skip this section if you’re in a hurry) : What I knew before the event and my thoughts throughout the process.
ii) What you must know : Detailed explanation of the event.

The information may not hold true for all the kinds of people. If you are not one of the following, act accordingly:

  1. A student in his 7th or 8th semester of Engineering
  2. A Fall applicant
  3. One who is inclined to TOEFL and not IELTS

Do not get confused by the terms I use to address the university. A school (Graduate School) or a program (Graduate Program) refers to the same. Also, any term underlined is a URL and is clickable.
