Hi lycurgus

I'm not sure if a profile evaluation would be helpful at this point, as it's already past the deadlines at some places, while some have deadlines approaching in a few days. Nonetheless, I will pitch in my evaluation based on the information provided.

Actually that is true..

However when applying to UCLA, UCI, Georgia Tech and ASU my CG was 8.1.. got the new transcript with sem 7 results [CG 8.33] ASAP for NCSU, ISU, Penn State and VT.

Would there be a significant change in those rankings? I really hope not..

AND got the admit for ASU..

Congrats on the admit! ASU was definitely your safest bet.
I understand that your GPA went down, right? If yes then I wouldn't recommend you to report your new GPA to the colleges, unless they specifically mentioned somewhere that you should report GPA updates (which I have never seen).
TBH though, it's not a big change in GPA. It shouldn't make any significant difference to your application. Research and recommendations constitute the most important components of your application, not the GPA.
So if you apply to any of those colleges, I won't change my classification of colleges.

Cheers!

Hi! I have only received the ASU admit as of now while ISU was a reject. I have not heard from other universities, no communication at all. Since it is almost time for scheduling visa interviews, is there any point in waiting further to hear from these universities? While I hope that since a rejection hasn't been sent yet it means that I still have a chance, my patience is wearing out.. Neutral Neutral

Hi lycurgus

That was quite erratic from ISU. Anyway, you have ASU and that's pretty good. Most universities give out admits till 15th April. You can always mail the grad admission coordinators and ask them their decision timelines. Anyway, I would recommend you to wait at least 2-4 weeks before applying for Visa. The Visa processing usually doesn't take long, unless you get unlucky and get a 221-G, in which case it might take an additional month (two at max) of processing. So just hold on tight for now. I know how enervating the wait can be, but that's how the system works.

Cheers!

Hi! @[abhirupdatta4]
Got UCLA on 30th March, waiting for others.. though all the remaining ones are lower in QS rankings than UCLA, hoping for NCSU coz it's a little cheaper. Penn State coordinator said that results will be out by 15th April. No response from NCSU...
Btw if at all we go by rankings, is US News better or QS?
Thanks!

It's a pity with my CG. I had 8 when applied to UCI and GaTech. Had to work harder!
