What should be my academic performance to get accepted for MS in USA?

  • Anonymous profile image
  • Anonymous Original poster
  • Preferred qualification: Undergraduate | Preferred study destination: United States

Current Status:

College: NIT

Course: Mechanical Engg. 9 (6TH Semester)

CGPA: 7.6 ( Till 4th Sem)


I want to do MS in USA.


I know my CGPA is not so good. But is it possible to get accepted in any college in USA with that CGPA.

Provided I do average in GRE and TOEFL.

If not what CGPA I should have at least.


Another question:

I read that to apply I need at least 3 letter of recommendation. Problem is in my college no professor knows me personally. Since I'm gonna need those letters at some point,

what should I do about it?

Dear Kawshik,

Greetings from Hotcourses.

Please note the every University has a difference requirement and US universities are quite flexible since they just do not stick to the GPA but look at your GRE, TOEFL, research, project and internship as well. Hence, work on your GRE and target a good score to make the profile good.

In regards to the Recommendation - Three LORs will be required for majority of universities so you will have to arrange them.

Do register on so that we can help you with the further process.

Thanks & Regards,
