    Question Univ's w/ no GRE requirement

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi all,

    I am searching for universities that do not require GRE to get an admission in to the computer science major. This is for someone I know who has got some bad results in the exam.

    Currently I know of the following

    (1) University of Northern Virginia in Manassas, VA (www.unva.edu)
    (2) Purdue Univ.-WestLafayette(IN)
    http://www.cs.purdue.edu/graduate_program/

    I knew about the first one through an agent and they are asking for a huge amount as fees. Does anyone have any more information about (1) in above. The university charges students an amount of 3k to allow the students to allow to work 40hrs when studying. However, this is only good for someone with experience and skill set.

    Currently, I live in Michigan and it would be great if there was something here. I know of one (www.findlay.edu) in Ohio but it doesn't offer computer science graduate programs.

    If anyone knows any more please share.


    Thanks
    Mekatoka

    A lot of the California State Universities don't require GRE. Try Cal State Long Beach, I really enjoyed my graduate experience there.

    The no GRE requirement for Purdue may be for US Citizens only. But I'm not 100% sure, you might want to call purdue to be sure.

    Also, even though they say its not required, the graduate application has a place for your gre score. So if someone has a good GRE score, they can put it in the application. This was the online app.

    As Scheng said cal state don't require GRE. ITs true , but only for few fields. and also depends upon which cal state. I know about cal state sacramento, don't require GRE for Civil engineering.
    But i'm sure that for CS/EE almost all the cal states require GRE's..
    BTW, why don't you give GRE????

    I am very mad at people that characterize as stupid/smart other persons/themselves based solely on a stupid and meaningless GRE score. Smartness/Stupidness cannot be judged until you get to know each person in depth, and certainly it cannot be measured by test scores. Other factors, such as organization, perseverence, modesty, responsiveness, honesty, effort, kindness, sincereness, and overall spirit are by far more important in evaluating one's intelligence!

    Thank you all for the replies.
    My friend is a relative of mine and hasn't been able to score good in the exams and I believe there is not much he can do in that matter.

    Here are his scores

    TOEFL 200/3.5
    GRE 340(Q)230(V)3(A)

    I live in Michigan (close to detroit) and so was looking for something closer to me.

    And I know that when you opt for universities without GRE you get in to virtually unknown universities but the situation is like that.

    Any more suggestions?

    Hmm...these are really low scores, what's the reason why he can't bring up these scores? If he wants to go to grad school for computer science, no matter where he's at, he should break at least 500 for his Quantitative. I mean, how is he going to pass his classes I wonder? Does he really want to go to grad school or is his family pushing him? If he is close to you, you are signing up for a lot of commitment to his success.

    With these scores, it's not even about the GRE anymore, it's about can he make it through grad school and does he want to?

    I agree with every point you are saying and I do not have an answer for it. The situation here is more like the guy wants to come to USA and their parents are ready to send him.

    Now, being so close to the family and having been living here for past 6 yrs I feel responsible to atleast help him to go to the best possible school/place in his situation.

    For instance the univ which we found through the agent (www.unva.edu) charges 3k just to allow you to work full time (which is not normal at other universities). But it is not helpful for him as he doesn't have good skills that will allow him to score a job.
