Welcome to the group. Thank you for looking at the files! As you can see you have unique and broadbased questions, so it might not be possible to thrust readymade answers at you.Congratulations on the start of the preparation!You now have us to guide you. Please do not consider joining a 1000 groups. It will clog your email list and not be of real worth to you. Do join other groups if you will, but limit by number and quality.Money is an issue that most grad students face, no matter what their backgrounds are. You will have to realize that graduate education in the US is competitive and fewer and few er students are getting funded before they arrive here. Some do compromise on the ranks of the schools under the very acceptable assumption that it should not matter where you gain knowledge.We encourage you to think through this problem for yourself. Depending upon your academic skills, previous performance and other attributes, you might get admitted into very good programs, but not with financial assistance at the get go. Some people do take the risk of coming here and trying out -- 99.99% of us succeed in finding funding eventually, but it comes with risk and a minimum obligatory spending over unspecified periods.We do not recommend any GRE coaching centers. They add little value to you.Since you are in the US and can spare some time, then you could visit the schools you like and seek the prospects for financial assistance. This could prove to be very useful to you since it is very hard to visit the schools on grad admit days and so on. Talking to people whose work you like and making connections in person is very valuable, so I strongly encourage you to consider spending the remainder of your time doing that here.May would be a good time to start preparations depending upon where your skills lie in the spectrum, and you could potentially take the exam in July/August.It will take a full two months, given that you are employed full time (and automatically assumed over time!) to prepare your statements, essays, bank documents, transcripts, resume and other application materials.This will bring you to October/Nov beginning by which time you should seriously consider dropping off your applications in the mail and then tracking them, making sure the schools have received everything. Simultaneously you could establish/re - establish conversations with Prof essors leading research in various schools.All this, is in line for 2007.Please feel free to ask as many questions as many times as you please.Good Luck,Srihari
