    Hi, Harsha. I’m currently in my second year of Computer Science Engineering and what I wanted to know was, as you said in the MYTH #3, you should have a Stellar Profile in order to get into the Ivy League Colleges. What is a Stellar Profile according to you? Also, I’m asking this because I kind of messed up my 1st year in the college and right now my GPA is around 5.9, What do you think should I do in order to get into an Ivy League. Thanks.

      Very unlikely you will get scholarship.
      Firstly, American universities use their masters programs as a “cash cow”, that means it is rarely funded.

      In some exceptional cases though, a masters student might be funded, but in such situations one should have a stellar profile. Your profile – sorry to say – is far from stellar, low GRE scores, and a GPA of 65%, I would venture to say it might be below the admission requirements of a lot of universities but if you intended to bear the full cost of study, you might just get in.

      Rather than worry about getting a scholarship, I think you should be more worried about getting in.

    Hi.. I am wiiling to take the test at the end of month and came across a weird thought on computer adaptive stratergy of GRE. People say if one does good in current section they get a tougher subsequent section which sets a higher cap on marks. What if I get an easy section to begin with? Is it that dependent on luck?

    Well I agree with you till some extent. But the thing in GRE is that it is all percentile grading. So if there is a really tough question, obviously many will not be able to answer it correctly. But if there are even a handful who do manage to crack it, then the bell curve shifts drastically. Just because you answered this many correctly or this many wrong does not guarantee a corresponding score. It all depends on your luck. My advice is focus on your learning more than the score. After all, score may be valuable temporarily, but knowledge always stays on for a lifetime.
