Entering U.S. Univ as foriegn student

    Can anyone in the forum please direct me to know whether GRE or TOEFl is the only criteria to enter into the US universities for doing a Ph.D.
    I am doing my masters in physics in the degree 'Master of Science(Physics)' in India.
    I want to do research on nanotechnology in any of the reputed universities.

    Can US professors select students on their own without required GRE and TOEFL. Is there a procedure of this sort?

    Thanking YOu in advance.

    As far as I'm aware, the GRE and TOEFL are necessary; even if you are say, transferring from the Tata Institute (or something similar).

    Make sure all your transcripts are in English and check whether you need to have the transcripts evaluated to US standards.. there is a company on the internet that has a good reputation for doing this, but I lost the address.

    Found it already.. it is International Academic Credential Evaluation http://www.wes.org/
