I have taken GRE yesterday and I aimed at getting a 320 in GRE but fell short of my expectations. (Powerprep 1 and 2 was in range of 318-20 with Quants 167,165, ETSBOOK TEST 165,164) Quants was way harder then any of the mocks i gave.

MY MAIN AIM IS TO GET IN either Kelly or TAMUC,


Shall i retake GRE. Or can i expect admit from kelly if i write a good SOP.

Nope, I'm not of help here. Please do not tag more than five seniors in one post. None gets a notification else.
Also, mention about your experience in info bank - profile, skills, employer, etc.

Will not answer any PM, instead tag.
Until you understand this thread, keep reading it. Unless, and until you understand it, please try avoiding to apply to US.

Hi hiback

Except UCinn, they are all highly ranked and competitive. The data suggests that you need GRE > 318/320 for most of them. You can use the 3rd graph in AdmitTrend to see average for each of these universities.

My advice is for you to add 4-5 safe to moderate programs.

Ambitious
TAMU (MIS)
IUB (MSIS)
Buffalo (MIS)
UMCP (IS)
CMU (MISM)
U Mich Ann Arbor (MSIM)
U Washington (MSIM)

Moderate
UCinn (MSIS / MSBA)

Safe
GMU
UTD
etc.....

Get started with this and with the help of UniSuggest and AdmitTrend, please do come back with a list of 10 programs total with all categories. Will give a final comment on those.

cheers,

EE

Can you update infobank with your work ex details like the technology you worked on and brief job duties.

Also, if you aim for some top notch univ's I would suggest retaking GRE.

If you can retake the GRE, definitely do so.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix. Also, before requesting for profile evaluations, please go through this excellent post.

2) Please take some time out to read these three threads in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.

I love to read, and then I regurgitate. I write - a lot - as my posts here and on other outlets would show. I do not make apologies for what I write (and how long it is). I do not sugarcoat things either. I don't tolerate vague questions, for any reasons - ignorance arising out of an inability to locate information when the necessary tools to do so (i.e. the internet, libraries, university websites, other forums/bulletin boards, etc.) are readily available, is not any kind of an acceptable excuse.

Sry for the delay. I was going through the end of semester exams, so didn't log in last week.

You can apply for TAMU or Kelley, but as other seniors pointed out - having a better GRE score gives you a leg up over other candidates. And if you have time, give another shot at TOEFL and try to score above 100.

All the best my friend Smile
