Fall or Spring?

Which of the two intakes should you aim for, while applying to universities?

Does applying for the Fall season really have any advantages? Or is it just a myth?

What are the pros and cons of applying for either of these intakes?

These are some of the quintessential questions that every budding Master’s degree aspirant asks. The fall vs spring discussion has of late been a topic of contention for many a test taker.

It has been a subject of doubt and discussion among many students all over the world, and it is a question that a ton of students have already asked us. It probably is on your mind too.

Which is why we decided to get to the bottom of this. We wanted to give you an unbiased answer to this much sought after question. And much like every other post of ours, this answer goes in depth, and gives you an answer supported by extensive research and expert opinion.

Thinking about attending Business School?

Sounds like a great idea!

But which test are you going to take?

A few years ago, GMAT was the most obvious and resounding answer one would hear from all applicants. Of course, GMAT was the only option back then

But, for better or for worse, it is no more the only option.

The GRE has now become a popular choice among a minor section of business school applicants, and the trend is growing by the year. Although close to 1200 universities across the world accept the GRE, the GMAT still remains the most valued exam by business schools.

According to the GMAC, around 5900 business programs across over 2100 universities and institutions around the world, accept the GMAT.

But, does that mean you should follow the herd and go with the GMAT?

Or, can you afford to go against the grain and take the GRE instead?

We’ll let you figure that out, but we’ll give you an unbiased review of the two most sought after tests in the graduate school world, so you’ll have solid data to decide which way you would want to go.

These are among the top 100 in the US. To get an admission call from these universities, you’ll need an average GRE score along with decent grades/GPA. Your overall profile has to be good, and there is an ever so slight chance of getting a scholarship or assistantship if your overall profile is significantly better than the average class profile of the university.

These are among the top 50 in the US. To get an admission call from these universities, you’ll need a good GRE score along with good grades/GPA. Your overall profile has to be really good, and there is an ever so slight chance of getting a scholarship or assistantship if your overall profile is significantly better than the average class profile of the university.

Before You Read On:

The list has been provided only for reference. The GRE score is only one part of the entire application process, and hence it should be understood that one cannot apply to a university based on just the GRE score. Often times, the GRE score doesn’t decide where you study, but your overall profile does.

Mike’s GRE is finally over. After several weeks of hard work, he has finally done it and received his official scores too. He got a good score, and he celebrated the moment with his friends and family. But then, he suddenly realized that the hard part is yet to come. Choosing the universities of his choice based on his GRE score; it wasn’t as easy as it seemed before. On the one hand, his friends and family coax him into applying to some famous colleges, and on the other hand, he tries seeking help online. But at the end of the day, he is as clueless as he was before. What should he do now? How does he know which schools would take him in and which ones are a waste of application fee?

Maybe you didn’t have enough time to study. Maybe you weren’t feeling your best on test day and that lead to poor performance. Maybe you were always weak in Math. Maybe you got a few questions wrong early, and it hit your confidence hard, and you went downhill from there. For whatever the reason it was, you couldn’t get a score you wanted.

But don’t worry. You are not alone. This is perhaps a question that is on the minds of thousands of students every year. Getting a GRE score 10-15 points lower than your target can be disheartening. But that is not the end of the world. There are still ways to get into a decent university, if you can send in a well-rounded, and impressive application.

The Statement of Purpose is probably one of the most misunderstood aspects of graduate applications. Most students pass it off like it is just another essay about themselves, and naturally, write monotonous stuff that doesn’t stand out. That is why, the university admissions committee puts a hefty weight on statement of purposes and their structure – they want to see whether you take the interest in letting them know how much you want to study at their university.

Most Statements Of Purpose Start Off Like This:

“I am applying to the Master of Science program in Something Engineering at the University of Example because I believe my technical skills will blossom at your program as it is a place where I will be challenged and where I can develop my scientific and technical knowledge.”
