Thank yo. It is unique post.

My name is Payal ,I am intrested in applying to the MSIS(Master of Science in Information Science) program provided by good colleges,My gre score is 1140(460-v,680-q,3-w) and my toefl score is 108.Do you think my scores are good enough for the program or are they low ??KIndly let me know which colls can i apply to for the program .My acads are BE agre-54%(had many backs),10th-81%,12th-64%.Will be waiting for your response Kindly reply soon .

Many times your academics credentials matter a lot for getting admission into good schools. As I see that you got some good score in your GRE and TOEFL with which I think you can still manage to get an admission in US. First decide in which field you want to study and then do your research online and see which univesities are providing those course and at what fee structure. For your reference I am providing you with some links where you can find some details on top schools in US. ALL THE BEST



Hi, payal here ,I have posted my comment above wherein i have mentioned that my gre score is 1140 and my toefl score is 108,do you think i can get into ms in cs in RIT(rochester insti of tech).have got 1 year work exp in s/w dev too.kindly ans my question as soon as possible.

Hi Payal,

Usually, there is no specific set of rules/criteria that ensures 100% admission in these universities depending upon your scores and background.Ofcourse, you can probably follow the GMAT, TOEFL scores and GPA to be in some ballpark. It differs a lot from university to university.

You can actually go to http://www.rit.edu and read more about their admission criteria, fees structure, courses offered, etc to be more clear on your questions. Also, you might want to contact someone at these universities who can provide you more precise and exact information about their admissions.

Sorry, there is no “yes or no” answer for your question.
Hope this helps!!!

Thanks a ton for your help,will surely contact someone from the university and try asking them bout their selection criteria.had 2 more doubt
1)—is USC good for MS in CS???
2)—If i plan to do MIS,could i still join as a developer after the completion of my masters…???

1) USC is ranked 24th for master’s in CS. So, this point I think says that it should be surely good if its ranked 24th in USA. You can probably research more about their courses, programs, fees, admission criteria etc on their website to decide for your application.
2) I think MIS is more like a combination of technology and business areas and people join as system analysts, business analysts, project managers, etc after MS in MIS. But if you want to go for becoming a developer after MIS then I think you should look out for programs that can offer more courses that you make u better developer.

Let me know if you have any more questions!!! Will be glad to answer them. Good Luck!!!

Hi i had a doubt,do you think i made a big mistake by applying to Georgia Tech for CS,because i have heard they directly discard applications with scores below..

Verbal: 542 (mine-460)
Quantitative: 774 (mine-680)
Analytical Writing: 4.17(mine-3)

Or do you think i stand a chance ..??

I’ve learned result-oriented things from the blog post. One other thing I have noticed is that usually, FSBO sellers can reject a person. Remember, they can prefer to never use your companies. But if anyone maintain a stable, professional partnership, offering aid and keeping contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually have the ability to win a meeting. From there, a listing follows. Thanks a lot

Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using? I’ve loaded
your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I
must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at
a fair price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

Can anyone please mail me or post comment here on minimum gre scores required for applying to UK

What’s up to all, how is all, I think every one is getting more
from this website, and your views are good designed for new people.
