@John Doe whats your GPA, if I may ask? Because mine isn't brilliant either lol but I think with luck I can make it. :)

I just mailed my documents to the admissions office, cost nearly 50 bucks via DHL. Should reach within this week.

@SaitKraken , Its 3.6. I really ****** up on my second year but kinda made up for it in later years.
I nearly spit my drink over my keyboard...3.6 is BAD!?!

I guess it matters a little what kind of grading your school has. Mine makes it quite hard to crack 3.5. Mine is actually nearer to 3.0 so yeahhhh. Hopefully I can secure the admission, I'm not extremely optimistic about the scholarship but I guess I could pay the fees too.

I suppose we'l have an interview in a few weeks then know for sure.

Fingers crossed.

So, guys, I had my interview a few days ago. It was surprisingly thorough with plenty of questions.

I was nervous so fudged it up a little and wasn't able to elaborate on some questions for which I already knew the answers (came back to me after the interview lol). But, I did get some questions right so I'm hopeful.

I guess nothing to do now except wait till Feb/March...

Apparently this interview is the last one, the first one i had was with my professor only.

In your case, did they dig in too dep into your proposal? Or what kind of questions were you asked?

Ohh I see. In my case, I had 2 interviews in total. The first one was very informal and was more like a “get to know” the lab and the prospective supervisor. This happened last october. The formal interview via skype was in front of a panel of interviewers. This happened last December. After the interview, he just told me that I passed the “department level” of screening and was forwarded to the university for further deliberation.

For the interview, I just discussed the research plan that I proposed. It was not really that deep. But when the interviewers asked some questions, my answers covered and explained the research thoroughly.
