(GRE Success! ) File - Monthly Reminder


Hello,

This is to remind you that you are still a member of GRESUCCESS, a group that aspires to help people, and dispel rumors regarding GRE, TOEFL, TSE, and other standardized tests, as well as, the entire application process in general. The group is also attempting to broaden its arms with quaint research on general aspects and observations of studying abroad. Please feel free to mail your concerns to the group by emailing to gre-success <at> yahoogroups.com

1. If you have any private queries, or if you are shy of asking a question in front of hundreds of people, let me re - assure you that you are entering a group of cultured people who will not laugh, disapprove or hold you in disdain. If still, you are apprehensive, please mail your queries to me at yamanoor <at> yahoo.com

2. Kindly try to make maximum use of the group by accessing and contributing to the links, database, files, photos and calendar sections of the group. Please be discreet. I shall remove any offensive material. Kindly add to any of the relevant tables in the database. Please upload files that you think will be useful for the members in the group. Kindly check for, and abstain from adding too large, or virus loaded files. Please upload any photographs of yours that you would wish to share with us (This shall be subject to scrutiny though..flimsy bikinis and flashy pets are fine...but I still insist on cross checking! :)). Also, please upload any important deadlines that you think might benefit the group. It is also not a bad idea to put up your birth date, test date etc on the calendar. This is a group full of fun loving people and we would like to share your joy!

3. Unfortunately, our group does not have the rights to use the polls section. I don't know how that came into existence. Kindly bear with me. We shall use free tools available on the internet for the same.

4. Please try to visit my home page http://www.yamanoor.com/gre/ to take advantage of the resources linked, that shall help you in your entire application process.

5. Also kindly note, I strongly discourage any personal messages or communications across the group. I will be moderating without exception, any messages that are either low in utility, or are sensitive, racial, or disapprovable in any manner.

6. It is my earnest request that you tell more friends about the group so that we can help serve a larger group of interested people. Also, if you have web pages, kindly consider using the promotion tools to make the process of subscribing easier for your visitors.

7. Do mail in more suggestions as and when you wish and think it is necessary. Every word is listened to.

8. A final note, as you see, the group's objective is to not only help and provide suggestions, it is also to dispel all sorts of rumors about the process that keep cropping up now and then. So, it is upto you to ask as many questions as you can.

Thanks for being a part of the movement.

Good Luck

Srihari

(GRE Success! ) Profile evaluation for PhD in CS (Raghav)

Hi all,
I want to do PhD in a mathmatically intensive area (sorry I have not
decided the specific area). Please evaluate the following profile for
PhD admission:

GRE: V-640 Q:790 AWA:expecting 4+

Master's: 6.62 out of 8.00 overall (5.80 in Coursework + 8.00 in
Project Work) from a very good institute (top 5)
B.Tech: 8.25 out of 10 from a good institute (top 20)
12th: 82.6%, CBSE Board.

Papers: One Journal Paper (first author) to appear in International
Journal of Operations Research - Special Issue on Game Theory
Apllications.
Two conference papers: One in IEEE CEC/EEE (first author) another in
APSEC (third author).

Recos: One excellent reco from a very well know Prof.
One very good reco from a good Prof.
One ok reco from a ok Prof.

Expeced experience at the time of admission: 2 year in security team
of a well known Database Company.

(I am sorry for not putting anything specific. But that is because I
am not working that hard in my company and if somehow if my manager
comes to know that I am thinking of PhD, I am afraid of bad
consequences. Afterall there is one more year that I have to spend
here.)

I will be very greatful if you can suggest me some specific
universities and I am not thinking of doing it without aid.
With Regards,
Raghav.

Re: (GRE Success! ) Profile evaluation for PhD in CS (Raghav)

You have a very good to excellent chance of admit with funding in many good universities. But please make sure that you present yourself well enough. Unfortunately, we cannot suggest universities for you. Please look for universities that are good in your area of research and come up with a list. We can then help you narrow down your list.

(GRE Success! ) Re: solve this

Hey Rajesh,

I had to look this one up. I didn't know that 'grades' also means
gradient in the US. Back when I was in the UK, bad grades was what I
kept getting each semester lol.

So, to answer this question, the phrase 'in spite' points that the
second half of the sentence would show contradiction to the first. In
this case, 'the mountainous terrain' is contradictory to 'free from
severe grades' (i.e. gradient, slopes, etc). None other answer choices
fulfills this criterion so I'm guessing B would be your best bet.

Thanks!
-Jakk-

(GRE Success! ) Re: solve thisi

Hey Rajesh,

My answer would be flak. "Rave" is to talk/write enthusiastically
about something as in 'the critics raved about the latest Batman
movie'. "Flak" on the other hand means severe criticism. So I'd guess
that that'd be the answer.

However I don't recall of 'flak' as being a verb which means it's not
in the same word group as 'rave'. I'm not so sure about this cos I
thought they should be in the same case, right guys? Or maybe it
doesn't really matter. Oh what do I know I just joined 2 days ago lol.
