Getting started on the application process
0

TLDR:
The exact application process might vary across different universities but the underlying steps almost remain the same:
0. Research the universities according to your field of interest and group them into ambitious, moderate and safe based on their ranking/reputation
1. Take standardized tests to demonstrate your aptitude and reasoning skills such as GRE/GMAT/IELTS etc.
2. Spend a generous amount of time on your essays: SOP/Personal Statement. Please don't make this generic and customize it for every university
3. Shortlist and start talking to professors for letter of recommendations. Even start drafting some basic versions because a lot of professors will ask you to give a draft.
4. Get your transcripts and other official documents ready
5. Mail stuff and make sure it reaches the universities on time.

@sm: That is a good post, indeed. But, it is Edulix forum policy to not point to other 3rd party websites. We'd be happy to sticky the content of that post, if (1) you're the original author of that post, and (2) if you copy and paste the content into a new thread here on Edulix.

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.
