<p>Has anyone else been accepted to the PE grad program for fall 2010?</p>

<p>I don't think TAMU looks at best combined GRE score. With your GPA barely above a 3.0, to be competitive at UT and TAMU you are going to need to raise your GRE -- especially your Quantitative section to atleast >750, and your Verbal to atleast >500.</p>

<p>Hello moviebuff87,</p>

<p>I have applied to a lot of the same schools that you have. Like you, I am an international student and I'm hoping to get into one of the MS Programs in petroleum engineering.</p>

<p>Have you heard back from any of the schools at this stage? I am hoping that they'll get back to us soon...</p>

<p>Cheers mate!</p>

<p>Hey Moviebuff87, Rambo85</p>

<p>I am a PETE Engineering major from University of Alaska Fairbanks. I am an international student.</p>

<p>I will be applying for master in Spring 2011. Got a GRE score of 1280 (Q=720, V=560) AWA=4</p>

<p>I was wondering which college you guys finally got into and did anyone offer funding. Your replies would be very helpful.</p>
