Physical Science Society, NIT Jalandhar organised an INTERACTION SESSION with Mr Hariprashad Ravikumar, who has been selected for PhD at New Mexico State University, USA. In this session, he share some anecdotes and offer some guidance to our MSc students. The interviewer of the session was Ms Vaidehi, General Secretary of Physical Science Society. A glimpse of the whole session is provided here. It all began with the first question.
He was asked,"How he approached a professor like do he had to contact the professor before applying?" What was the detailed procedure he went through? What was the timeline of the procedure? What were the factors he consider while applying to a university or while approaching a professor? Did he had to give any GRE exam? Did he had to go through any interview? How much his academic grades matter? How he wrote his SoP? What about the fellowship these universities offer? What about the amount and the criteria? How can one know that he/she is making the right choice about the university or the supervisor and many more questions he was asked.
