Application Process - Selecting University

The first step in choosing a American university is to choose some four to ten universities suitable to your GRE/TOEFL test scores, Academic percentage.

Filteration and Funding

Now filter the universities selected by you based on cost of Education. One of the primary factors in selecting a American university is Cost of the Education (Tuition + Other fees+ Living expenses). Cost of the Education plays a main role rather than the university ranking or anything else. Generally Schools with less less tuition fee are preferable. Generally schools below $5000 per 9 credit hours are considered as schools with low tuition.

  • If School's tuition is high, then look for funds available in your department.
  • If you get an admission for a high ranked university with high tuition fee and a low ranked university with less Tuition fee, then choose the school, with less cost of education.

Contact the Department

Enquire about the Funding opportunities available in the specified departments of American universities where you are seeking admission. This is a very important step in

University selection because a University may not offer good funding for all departments equally. Funding means Fee waivers/ Assistantships. Look a the Funding Opportunities page of the MSinUS.COM . Use Orkut Communities, Yahoo Groups of American universities.

Accreditation

Enquire whether your major in the School/University is Accredited or not. Accreditation is the certification that a school or program meets a prescribed academic standard. It is very important to know that a college or university is accredited. If you attend a college or university that is not accredited, you will not be able to transfer your credits to an accredited college or university. Your home country may not recognize your degrees, and you may not be able to get the job you want.

Tuition Fee

Always Select a School with less tuition fee and in Urban area. Because In urban areas you have the chances of getting Internships (full time jobs while pursuing MS). If you can get an Internship you can work for full time in USA while doing your MS, which gives you lot money to support your education.
