Application – A student craving to apply to top universities in USA must prepare at least a year in advance as most Universities have stipulated deadlines, thereby making the whole process time bound.
The application process entails the critical hurdle of deciding on the most suitable and affordable universities, followed by the task of arranging the application documents such as transcripts, essays, test scores, CV’s, recommendations and financials etc. Usually for undergraduate courses universities require SAT scores, for Post Graduate or Master’s degree in USA they require GRE, GMAT scores. For ‘English proficiency’ for both PG and UG admission in USA, TOEFL is accepted by All institutes but now IELTS is also accepted by many Universities.
Visa – A foreign study visa can be both the easiest and the toughest task for a student- and both for the same reason- that a student appears for a short interview of duration of 90 seconds to 3 minutes and gets his decision at the same time.
The interviewer may ask a range of questions within this short span of time and a student needs to be prepared to deliver smart and cogent answers and convince a visa officer of his genuineness for travelling to USA for studies. Decision on approval or rejection is expected pretty much there itself during the interview.
