University of Pennsylvania | Student Feedback

  1. How many credits are required to complete the graduation and how do you spread them? – You need to take 10 credits. So it can be either 3-3-2-2 or 3-3-3-1. There are few students who take 4 courses in a semester and try to finish MS in 1.5 years. This totally depends on the student.

  1. What is the approximate living expense for both on and off campus arrangements?What is your suggestion regarding the same?-On campus living is too expensive. Rent itself is $800 followed by your expenses on food and parties. Off Campus is pretty cheap. I am currently paying 350$ rent and have a personal room . Food+groceries+parties=150$-200$ per month.

  1. How is the payment of fees made? Is it termwise or yearly?– The payment is termwise. So you will be paying your fees for 3 courses in September for Fall 2016 and again for Spring 2017 in January next year.

  1. I intend to take RA/TA as early as possible. Is it possible to get it in the first semester itself? – It is possible to take RA/TA in the first semester but you wont be paid as the professors would want to know how you work. I have worked as an RA in the 1st semester and as a library assistant for which I was paid and could cover my rent every month. Also from second semester you can get a RA ship provided you have made good contacts with people here.

“My philosophy all my life has been the pursuit of excellence”. – John Kluge.

I share Mr. Kluge’s approach towards life. As an individual, I have always undertaken each and every endeavor with a sense of passion and commitment. I have been brought up to respect an individual based on his knowledge rather than his wealth. These moral values that have been instilled in me by my parents, will hold me in good stead in the years to come. These intellectual skills are the single driving force behind my zeal to study Material Science. The urge to learn more and contribute to the field of Material Science has driven the course of my academic career for all these years, including my current decision to pursue graduate study.

Sample SOP for Telecommunication

During the last decade, we have witnessed revolutionary changes in the field of Telecommunication in India. Today, mobiles have replaced landlines for many as the primary mode of communication.
The industry has progressed from 1G to 3G and now 4G is gaining prominence. Given the pace of change, technological obsolescence is becoming a serious issue to reckon with coupled with the fact that the implementation of each technology requires sizeable investment into infrastructure, network, etc. In addition, the gestation period of the investment is increasing given the competitive landscape of the industry, where the average revenue per minute is steadily declining.   As a result, the industry is becoming more dynamic and strategy oriented. It requires professionals who not only can understand technology but also can evaluate the same from a business perspective.  My long-term career goal is to lead a telecommunications company focused on generating returns for all stakeholders. It is with this objective in mind that I intend to pursue a Masters in Telecommunications and Networking.
