Application Schedule

Start your application process as early as possible, typically, at least 12 to 18 months in advance. 

You have to spend long hours on the Internet, researching universities, their programs, entry requirements and their reputations. Read articles on the internet about the universities, besides going through the university websites.

If you are looking at September semester, you should send in your applications by the month of December of the preceding year. This means you should have your GRE and TOEFL scores by the month of October of the preceding year.

The earlier you apply, the better your chances of admissions and financial aid. As mentioned in the previous issue, networking is a very important part of graduate admissions. 

You should write to the professors much before you apply. This way, you would be able to gauge their interest and make a decision on whether you wish to apply to that university. The chances of getting a reply are much higher if you mail early. As most students apply late, professors usually have more free time during October and November. This is the best time to approach them with complete details.

Remember, if you write to them without complete details, like say, if you write to them without your GRE score, you may not get a reply. Most of them get hundreds of mails and only the serious and well-written mails get a reply.  

The financial aid decisions are made pretty early and there is a lot of competition for funds. An early start would give you a big advantage in getting any kind of financial assistance.

To sum it up, APPLY EARLY.
