Warning! How correct is

I was trying the where they have a form in which you enter your scores, years from graduation, ...etc and they find you what programs can take.

I entered more than 10 years after graduation and then 99/99/pass and their search results said "sorry no programs found"!!!

Is that correct?

No programs will take old grads over 10 years after graduation

What do you think about this

Thumbs Down It's wrong

They are definitely wrong. Don't rely on them. They are hundreds of progams out there that accept old grads like us.

Good luck

There are several programs that take graduates with more than 10 years pass out date. You also have super scores! Your chances will be higher to be selected if you have good experience especially in US or atleast a few years in US.

Let me know if you have more questions and best of luck for your match this year.
