Hello fellow forumers. I've been digging around but to no avail in my search for guidelines to being successful with graduate school admissions. I'm hoping that those who have undergone this process can shed some light on this topic. I am planning to pursue a masters degree in electrical engineering. I know solid GRE score is imperative, but how important are extracurricular activities such as clubs, sports, and teams? Will doing research be more helpful than extracurriculars? What are other important factors in admissions to a master's degree program? Thank you.
