Murray State University- Low Acads (10-15 backlogs)-low GRE-IELTS-6.0/TOEFL-<71
Murray State University
Dr. Raju's Notes: It is a public/state university located at Murray, in the state of Kentucky, established in the year 19o5. It is a medium sized public university roughly accommodates 11000 UG+PG students. This university gives liberal admits for low academic profiles to International students. Because of the admission process and vigorous promotion by the consultants many Indian students get clustered (there are few part-time jobs) in a rural area.

Final Verdict: If you are moderately rich with the finances-- this is one of the best option for low academic credentials in USA. Due to its rural location it is always difficult to get part time jobs. But living expenses will be around 350-400 USD only per month. If you have low academic credentials (60% with 10 backlogs) + IELTS-6/TOEFL-71+ 288 GRE.. this University is going to be a savior. The cost of study will be anywhere close to Max 18-20 lakhs depending upon your willingness to work part-time (if available).
Special Note on Murray State University: In the process of providing information on Universities which are suitable for moderate academic credentials and low GRE scores (285-295)..I am here with providing information on Murray State University to student community. Here I don't want to take a stand on whether a particular university is good or bad. Since it may unnecessarily invite some feelings (may be positive or negative) which are unwarranted at this juncture of application and admission (later VISA) process.. The students are advised to thoroughly seek information from the alumni before they initiate the application process of any University which offers an easy admit to the Indian student.
