  1. Congratulations on the great admits! Personally, I would go for MS&E. This course is very flexible and you can tailor it to your requirements very well. Besides, you're likely to have a more well-rounded education at MS&E, studying along with students from diverse backgrounds. Good Luck!
  2. Excellent sklamba!! What are your areas of interest? I believe you can consider those while making your choice. Congratulations! :)
  3. I've been admitted to MS programs, including UMich, but don't know about PhD admits. Btw, you can't be serious about the MIT thing! Only one female?!
  4. I dont think anyone should make their decision based on financial aid. I suggest you go to Stanford no matter what! Work out a shoe string budget and live frugal, but GO! Congrats!!!!!
  5. Congratulations Morassa! Great admits :) Have you received any communication from UCLA yet? Or any of your friends received admits from them? Thanks!
  6. HI TMians! I was browsing through the Admissions Results page and thought it would be convenient to have our latest admission results for Fall 2006 posted into one thread! This way, as we get more admits, we can keep updating into the same thread, instead of making new threads. :hmm: Erin had a more apt name for this section of the forum earlier: "Success". We want to know your success as well as the less-important disappointment. Please post your profile in brief and your admits/rejects. I have tried to make a short standard format so that it doesnt take forever to fill in, but feel free to add more details if you wish! Let this thread be irrespective of the field or program; everyone is welcome to post. OK, Let me start with myself: Field: IE Program: MS Specialization: Manufacturing/Logistics GRE: 800Q, 730V, 5.0 AWA TOEFL: 300 GPA: 3.82 PU, India Work Exp: Yes, One Year. Admits: Georgia Institute of Technology University of Michigan Ann Arbor Ohio State University Penn State University :grad: Rejects: University of Wisconsin Madison Texas A&M University Ugh! :mad: Awaited: Stanford Purdue I'll keep updating as (if! :doh: ) they roll in!
  7. Thanks jhesham! I'll surely remember your post till the day I take my TSE :)

    Rainth the book is available with footpath sellers everywhere. Its a very popular book; red cover, and costs around Rs.100. If you dont want to bother with the hunting, I guarantee you'll find it in Crossword. All the best :)
  9. I dont think it's a problem. If the professor has offered to put in a word for you, they probably will not reject you. The professor's word counts a lot. And outright rejecting somebody based only on verbal score is not something a school like Gatech is likely to do. All the best, and congratulations in advance :)
  10. I don't think you need an MBA: Its best you once again rethink the reasons why you want to do an MBA: 1)You dont want to be stereotyped as a lifelong 'technical guy'. 2)You want a change in your job profile You may want to reconsider whether securing an MBA will give you these. The world is getting to be more and more specialized, i.e. more towards the technical side. You may want to look for a more 'general management' kind of job instead, albeit on the technical side. Also remember, the grass is always greener on the other side - so do some self study before making a decision. All the Best! :)
  11. Awesome, congratulations! Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and PHD AND Dukes?! Man, that will take some time to digest ;)
  12. Many Congratulations DR. HOLDEN ;) All the best!
  13. Thank you guys :) But I'm far from relaxing! Have to plan my education on a tight budget. How are things with all of you? Mishum, no news of Dingus. He's probably sitting in the university of his dreams now :) Test Magic is a strange place. It brings people together only for a very short while, and the departed seldom return. My field is Manufacturing. And guys, you should try jogging! Especially during these tense times :)
