    Are u sure regarding the deadlines of the univ’s are concerned because KSU, UNCC deadline date is jan 15. Please cross check the data.

    • September 26, 2012 at 12:57 pm

      Yes, for UNCC it’s May and not July. So I have made the changes. While for KSU it’s in between jan and march. They keep changing the Deadline dates. So this is just to give you a general idea about the Deadlines.

    • October 17, 2012 at 4:16 am

      Hello, I have added these Universities too

  • August 19, 2013 at 9:19 am

    I have a question having gone through the Univ deadlines for Fall. Is there any direct relationship to the deadline and the quality of the university. May be it may sound silly, but I have heard people say that as far the deadline is the lesser the quality of an institution. Like, good univs don’t accept students even at the 9th hour. Please give a clear idea regarding this.

    • August 22, 2013 at 1:48 am

      Best Univs have earlier deadline generally and normal Univs have a convenient deadline.

  • October 21, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    your post was really good…!! thanks..
    can u plz tell me that if
    1.i will give my GRE and TOEFL in dec. 2013….
    will i be able to apply to A and A+ universities…like stanford etc. for fall 2014 ?? don’t worry about LOR SOP etc. i’ll manage it till dec end.
    2.plz tell that how much time will it take for gre and toefl scores to reach us..??
    3.do i need to send some “application packets” by post or i can only apply online?? i.e the day i get both the scores i can fill the forms and voila!! i am done…is it so????
    if no…
    then how many days will i have in spare for safe application from…”giving the test and end of application/deadline”…..
    plz answer all questions keeping the best universities in mind….
    i am afraid as everybody gives their GRE and TOEFL in oct-nov…am i too late..????
    thank you very much…

    • October 22, 2013 at 7:50 am

      1) Your profile has to be extra-ordinary for getting into Stanford.
      2) Online – It will come within 2 weeks… Hard-copy takes a month.
      3) Depends on the University. Some Univs require the docs to be sent b Post.

      Giving your Exams in oct-nov is not late. You can go ahead and give the xams. You have enough time to apply for the fall.

  • April 16, 2014 at 2:08 pm

    i havent taken my gre n ielts exam till now…if i ll take the xam both exams by the end of april or in the mid of may is it possible for me to intake for fall 2014….plz rply its urgent for
