To Aspiring students looking into a PhD program

It is nice to hear about your aspirations for a PhD. I wish you all the best!
Since my background is in physics, do not be surprised if my information turns out to be different.

I recommend that you start with the following:
1. TOEFL, GRE, subject GRE requirements.
2. A short list of universities that you would like to go, and why?
Seniors and professors may be your resources for your way into these.
3. Learn about the required supporting documents such as letter of recommendation, copies of original transcripts, application fees etc to the office of graduate admission.

Once you have figured these requirements, you will know a lot on how to proceed.
Then the usual way is to send in the applications, and supporting documents. Do inquire to the admission office to learn about the appropriate procedure.

All the best!
