(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

Re: (GRE Success! ) What shall I do after the application deadline?

 

Hello Ahmad,

After applying, you can definitely contact faculty. Be gentle and respectful of their time and keep your expectations a little low. Other than confirming receipt of your documents, you should leave the admissions committee alone, because they have too much work to do reviewing applications.

Good Luck,

Srihari

(GRE Success! ) Number of medical residencies of foriegn origin "may" increase in the U.S.

 

Hello Everyone,

This is only relevant to people in the medical profession. Remember, unless and until it is signed into law, you should not depend on any promises:

http://www.hindu.com/2010/01/03/stories/2010010355250900.htm

Happy New Year and New Decade for all of us beholden to Roman calendars.

On a side note, I am on an attempt to "vacation". So far it has succeeded partially and this is why I am late writing back to those who have written to me. Please expect replies from me after the 5th.

Good Luck,

Srihari

(GRE Success! ) What do you consider (ZERO) - odd or even?

 

Hi.

ets.org states that:

The set of integers, I, is composed of all the counting numbers (i.e., 1, 2,3, . . .), zero, and the negative of each counting number; that is,
I={. . . ,-3,-2,-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, . . .}.

Therefore, some integers are positive, some are negative, and the integer 0 is neither positive nor negative. Integers that are multiples of 2 are called even integers, namely {. . . ,-6,-4,-2,0,2,4,6, . . .}. All other integers are called odd integers; therefore {. . . ,-5,-3, -1,1,3,5, . . .} represents the set of all odd integers.

It considers 0 as even integer, but what I remember from my school classes, I was taught "0 is neither even nor odd".

Please pour in your views.

(GRE Success! ) gre-success advisory continues: Australia extremely unsafe for students from India

 

Hello Everyone,

In case you have missed the news, the violence against Indian students has worsened. 

The Australian Government would rather live in denial and the people there wish Indians burned to death. 

What is an alternative to Australia?

Anywhere else. 


Good Luck,

Srihari
