Fro example if you have selected Engineering, then select the specialization. After you have entered your GRE score and other details, press Find and you will see the results in 4 different categories. The results are sorted based on US news ranking and you can click on any result column to re sort them.Remember that this categorization is based on the scores aggregated from the universities websites, and in no way should be taken as the final advice.
These are the four classifications of profile evaluation results
Tough: Based on your score and university admission statistics, US universities would fall under tough category for you.
Medium: Based on university admission statistics and your GRE scores and GPA, these US universities would not be very difficult to get admission.
Easy: These US universities are relatively easy to get admission.
No minimum score: There are few master universities which have not mentioned minimum GRE scores. Admission is decided based on the application package, scores, GPA, work experience, extra curricular activities.
Students should keep in mind following points while short listing universities
- Schools look at the complete application which includes your score, SOP (Statement of Purpose) / Essay and extra curricular. A low score may be offset by a high achiever in another area. So if your dream school falls under medium category as you have low quantitative score, do not be disheartened. If you are going to write a strong Statement of Purpose and explain why you think you should be getting into this university, chances are you could be accepted
- Acceptance rate is another important criteria. Even if your profile evaluation results categorize university under Medium or Easy, admission is always tough in top ranked universities like Colombia, Harvard or Stanford.
