Choosing a University
Choosing a university from overseas is a very rigorous task because there are over 4,000 U.S. universities, and they all offer a wide variety of courses.
Applying to a U.S. university is a very different from applying to universities in other parts of the world. Getting admitted in a U.S. university is not an easy task. Even though it takes lot of hard work, the results are rewarding. There are over 3,000 accredited colleges and universities in the U.S. that accept international students. Other than this, there are nearly 2,000 private and community colleges, many of which are as good as the state-supported schools. Students should choose the university that fits their needs and goals the best. The best way for a student to begin his or her search is to first decide on a Major. Then he or she can research colleges and universities that specialize in the chosen field of study.
Students planning to pursue their degree in the U.S. should start their preparatory work at least 6-7 months before they plan to begin their studies
