HelIo, this is my old homepage. Now I have moved to Stanford University, California. You can find my new homepage here.

I have written a webpage with information about what is needed to apply for Graduate Studies (MSc or PhD) in USA. There are a lot of tips and hints about what makes an application successful. This page is in Greek. You can also download the entire page for off-line view from this link: study_USA.zip
