Admission Checklist for Fall 2014
Most of you would have started the Application process and would be wondering on which things we need to include. Here’s the Admission checklist for the Application Process for Fall 2014 and check what are you missing.
So there are total 14 items on the Admission checklist for Graduate School Application for US Universities.
- Graduate School Application (Online or Paper)
- Application fee
- Statement of Purpose
- Letter of Recommendation (2-3)
- Resume / CV
- Official Transcripts (Sealed by University)
- Semester wise Mark sheets of B.Tech / B.E.
- GRE / GMAT Score Sheet
- TOEFL / IELTS Score Sheet
- Extra / Co Curricular Certificates
- Photo copy of Passport
- Affidavit of Support / Bank Statement (Not Always)
- Summary of Research Papers (If any)
- Work Experience / Internships certificate (If any)
You will need to report the GRE and TOEFL electronically through ETS official website. You can check the application fees and tuition fees of different US universities here. The length of statement of purpose is generally about 700-1000 words on an average but there are certain universities such as University of Florida, North Carolina State University etc which are strict about the SOP limit and the limit is 500 words only. Make sure you write precise and to the point in your SOP.
Also one important part of your application process is Resume. I will post an article in a day or two on how to make a resume and will include some sample resumes. Please ensure that most of documents apart from GRE and TOEFL are ready and you submit the application before deadline. In most of the cases, you can send your GRE and TOEFL scores 15-20 days after the deadline.
Well if you think any of the documents are missing then please comment below so that I can include in the admission checklist. I hope this post on admission checklist helped you. Have any questions? Comment below
