I wanted to write this blog so that everybody knows how I proceeded with my GRE preparation and when exactly I applied for the university. As well as, by what time I got university admits and when I got my visa. The purpose of this blog is to inform everyone, that it is never too late or never too early for anything. And sometimes things will happen when you least expect them.
I am going to just post the links to drafts for a statement of purpose first. But if you have not watched my previous video regarding Statment of purpose, you should. It will help you drafting it better. Here is the link to that - Statement of Purpose which got me into Purdue!
I wanted to make this video since a few people on a regular basis ask me regarding what books do I use, or how I studied during my GRE preparation.
So this list is the document which I took for my OFC and VISA interview. There is a lot of document which can be added to this list. But for me, this list is limited to the items mentioned below.
Okay, even if I got into Purdue which is one of the top universities still I was a little scared about if I will get the visa or not. I reached the embassy at 10.50, not the best thing to do to come that early, but there was a lot of stuff going on my mind and it was better to go early than late.
OFC (Offsite Facilitation Center) Appointment is the process when US Embassy takes your fingerprints and picture. It is a very simple process and it doesn't in anyway affect your Visa approval/rejection chances. Most of the countries usually take biometrics.
I have taken TOEFL and not IELTS but I will mention some points which I have seen on University website which I was researching for TOEFL. I scored 106/120. I will post a screenshot of my test report to give a clear split of scores. Also, my photo is super bad, I look better than this usually.
So, I spent approximately USD 2000 for the whole application process. This number might be scary for a lot of people and when I add it up, I feel like I did spend a lot. But you have to consider the fact that if you land up a job in the US you minimum income will be around 3000 USD/month. This is as minimum for master's graduate as it can get.
