    yep kaaa...

    School Websites will have a general compilation of all the Professors info. The template would be same .. i mean it would be like a resume of all the Prof's current research and investigations. The best and the simple way of contacting a prof is by email . He/she is busy enough to attend calls. If your bro is interested in a particular professor then he might do more hunting like finding out the students working under him and establishing contact with him/her .

    Hope it helps

    Ur information to shy was very useful to me too

    actually i have dun masters in biochemistry and i tried for job here even though i am eligible to work in US legally but i didnt get any job, currently i am working as a volunteer.
    so i thought of doing MS or to work as a research associate in any universities.
    i kept on mailing to diff professors in diff universities but everyone said they had no openings
    one of my friend who s doing MS (engg) after completing GRE said that i have to go personally and meet people for any opportunities.
    Also i tried to prepare for GRE but i am vey poor in math, my hubby helped me teaching, but my pick up is so slow, i think i have to practise a lot, only then i can answer all the tricky questions being asked n the exam within the time.
    Hmmmm now i am not pracitising it :-(

    can u suggest me any ideas related or apart from this, i feel watever i have studied is getting wasted. somehow or the other i have to study here or work.

    I appreciate response from others too!!!!!

    thanks

    IIG..

    Apart from masters, i have a year of research experience where i did only basic research, so not even fully involved, i didnt learn much of the techniques too.
    Initially i thought of doing Ph.D but now since i am married i have look up my family, so i feel doing PhD is difficult,cos u have to keep on thinking abt ur work rather than ur home.
    so i thought of just doing as an assistanship initially and if i feel comfortable i thought of proceeding further. also wen i do the assistanship, my guide may let me to do lots of work so that i can learn a lot and get in touch with techniques and other stuffs.

    i dont know wat else i shd furnish
    if u have any questions apart from these specifially, pls let me know, i will answer them.

    thanks

    San, I think you misunderstood my post above. I was asking in general for further studies like Ph.d. after Masters for some useful souls like me.

    And I am also eagerly waiting for more details regarding US as i am as of now no way connected to US studies

    Sorry I cannot help. May be few can give you few tips.

    All the very best.

    Sanravi,
    Actually I dont have much idea related to your stream. I remember hearing from my friend that one person did a MS in Physics in US, she already had a MSc Physics in India.

    The best solution for your situation is to explore the universities in the city you live. First see the requirements for Biology, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering Departments (I mean GRE, TOEFL, acads etc). Since you've just lived a year in the US, TOEFL would be required I suppose. It is mostly the state universities that have funds for assistantship, and I dont know if state universities accept admissions without a GRE score. Am not sure specifically for Life Sciences, you should check the specific university websites.

    Once you have a fair list of universities, you can schedule an appointment with the graduate coordinator and few professors matching your interest and talk to them about your admission (spec requirements, is there any requirement that can be waived or whatever). After you do some talking you'll have a better idea than what you feel now as for your next plan of action (whether to take GRE or not/TOEFL or not / directly apply).

    I remember a site gradschools.com that has a list of univs that offer graduate programs. There are a lot more sites if you google.

    thatha (vasan) will have a better idea, he is from CA where H4 -> F1 is not a new thing.
