EE Grad School

  1. Jun 30, 2010 #1
    Hello all,

    I'm a senior Electrical Engineering student at Wright State University in OH and I'll be graduating in March 2011 with my BSEE degree.

    I've come to the conclusion that my main area of passion and interest is in power systems and power generation so I'd like to do a masters degree focusing on that, which they don't really have at Wright State - so I'll need to go elsewhere.

    My stats:

    3.01 for all undergrad (I had some poor study habits at a prior Univ.)
    3.43 Wright State
    3.57 Electrical Engineering

    I've been doing some research on grad schools an the school I think might be my best fit is the University of Kentucky. They have a wonderful power program and I think I might have a more realistic shot of getting into UK than Ohio State, which I was originally thinking of pursuing.

    My main question is: Are my stats good enough to get into a school like UK? I plan to take the GRE soon and I'm hoping that doing well on that will boost my chances as well. UK only requires an 1100 GRE so I'm hoping to surpass that by quite a bit. Not a guarantee of course, but I certainly hope I can.

    Do I have a chance?

    Thanks in advance!
