The minimum entry requirement is 3.0/4.0 GPA for graduate applicants, IELTS – 6.5/TOEFL – 85 and above. The university which you have short listed also requires the same entry requirement to enter into the master program. Re-take your IELTS exam and apply to more universities in USA. The university admission team has the final decision to confirm the offer for an applicant.

Dear Krupal,

 

Greetings from Uniguru 

 

Thank you for your query .

 

Good to know that you have decided to pursue a MS in USA in Engineering .

Deciding on the colleges to apply to is an important juncture in the college admission process. It starts with careful assessment of where you are and what do you realistically expect to achieve.

 

Do note that, The Uniguru website has an extensive library of career related articles and videos. 

If you want to gain in depth knowledge about a career or course, universities and admission process, we suggest you to refer the website closely

You may want to check the admission chances here for the 5 universtiies that you have applied to , if the chances are weak then I would suggest retaking the tests and reapplying as suggested below:

 

 

From your profile , I can see that your IELTS score of 5.5 which is lower than that expected by most US universities for Engineering .

 

As such US universities base their admission and scholarship decision on the basis the overall student profile which is academics, GRE score and Co- curricular activites , hence I feel you have a good chance to secure admission in reputed US universities for Physiotherapy ,  if you retake the IELTS exam and aim at atleast a 6.5 score and also take the GRE exam as well and aim at a 300 score 

 

In your profile you have not mentioned about which subject you are interested in under engineering  and what is your academic performance and whether you have work experience , internships to your credit since they also boost your admit chances

 

Do note you need to start the application process atleast 6 months before the intake month - for Spring 2015 intake all the deadlines would commences from August 2014 itself

 

Hence you can plan to apply for Spring 2015 intake , you can consider taking the GRE and IELTS by July  2014 and work on the other application requirements since the Spring 2015 deadlines will commence from August 2014 

 

For this you can refer to the uniguru website for GRE preparation help
