In the following paragraphs, we will break down the study in USA admission process to help you gain a comprehensive understanding:
The first step is to research the options of best programs and universities that match with your goals. A college that is highly ranked might not be the best option for you. So, choose a college and destination that best suits you. It’s important to stay ahead of the game and start the research process at least 12 to 18 months in advance before the start of your target academic year. Keep in mind that the application process is not complete until the result of standardized tests are submitted and it must be done before the application deadline.
Planning your finances is the next step after submitting your application. It’s important to understand that the cost of living and study in USA can be overwhelming. However, with proper and timely planning, you can receive significant amount of financial assistance to help you attain your desired education from your dream university or college. Sometimes being flexible in terms of the location can also help you save a good amount of money.
There is no set standard or process to the admission application in USA. Each university or college has their own preferences and criteria based on which they shortlist students. However, there are some documents which must be submitted along with the application as a standard procedure, such as letters of recommendation, writing essays, submitting the result of standardized tests.
Once you have submitted your admission application, it is a good idea to start your visa application process. This can be a strenuous and time consuming task. Approval to the visa is subject to the interviewer’s discretion. However, you can increase your chances of approval by touching upon certain points during the interview such as explaining your reasons to study in USA, your financial planning and arrangement for the costs associated with it and plans after completing your education.
After your admission and visa is approved, you are ready to start preparing for your departure. At EdElevate, we arrange a pre-departure orientation at our local Delhi office where we discuss the materials and documents to take along with you. We also help you mentally get prepared for what to expect there – the cultural differences, weather, people and the lifestyle.
It is also advisable to visit your university’s website to learn more about the college and program for which you have been approved. There are many other steps you can take to make your transition to USA an easy one, such as carrying a local sim, taking health and travel insurance, learning about the local transportation, checking the weather and taking clothes accordingly.
