USA is undoubtedly the land of opportunities and hope and an ideal place for international students. The US universities give you a lot of options to select from in terms of courses they offer. It requires a lot of expertise to get through the admission process as it involves many Do’s and don'ts. In such situations do not hesitate to approach an education consultant.
Education counselor Richard says, that the process starts with a complete research of the Universities and the courses they offer and other such aspects. Next step is your pre-application process. Every university has their own method of admission processes. Get to know it and you can also apply online. During this e-application you will have to send your profile to the universities and ensure your profile is acceptable. If it is then you can proceed with the application. This helps you narrow down your choices. Now that you know which universities you can apply to, go to these university websites and do a complete study of the institution. Richard’s advice is apply to at least 6 - 8 universities and you can get an assured admission from one of them.
As mentioned earlier in this article, each university follows different procedures for admissions. Make a keen note of the application deadlines, as few universities’ deadline could also be one year before the commencement of classes. While applying online, you are required to send the documents to the universities; some accept through file uploads while others will want the documents to be couriered. After you send the application, make sure you track the application status, whether it is complete or if the university requires more documents, if yes, then you send them across. Once everything reaches the institution, you give them around 6 - 8 weeks to respond. If you haven't received a confirmation, then you will have to track your application and make sure it is not incomplete or lost. Due to this the forms will not be evaluated and you will not get an admission. These are the main points that needs to be taken care of when you are planning to study in US.
