    official copy.

  • GRE is required for Graduate applicants.
  • There is no minimum score required in most of the
    universities. But you have to compete with other

    for subject GRE

  • Why do you choose the particular university?

  • On their letter head, sealed inside envelope and
    signed by the recommender

Application Fee
  • Universities ask application fee ranging from 30
    to 100
  • But we can not pay application fee.
  • Write a letter asking for waiving the fee or
    deferring the fee until your admission.
  • There are also universities which do not require
    application fee for application process and some
    ask for application fee only after your
    admission. In some universities department pay
    app fee if you are recommended for admission to
    office of admission.
  • Pay application fee if they say they could not
    forward your application file until fee

I used this forWaiving App Fee
  • Dear
  • I am writing to let you know that I am very much
    interested in Ph.D. program in chemistry at your
    esteemed university. I am going to submit my
    application shortly.
  • I have one problem though. Unfortunately, I am
    unable to pay the required application fee. You
    probably know about the financial situation in
    Nepal. I would like to ask you about the
    possibility to waive the fee or defer the payment
    until my admission in your university.
  • Thank you very much for your help and
  • Sincerely
