May students aspire to study in US Universities. Us offers some of the best universities in the world, with the best education and course curriculum. All this might sound very interesting, but getting admission at one of the US universities is not an easy task. You have to start preparing way ahead of the application deadlines and make sure you have everything just right to ensure your admission at one of the US universities.
The first step is to submit separate applications to each US University that you have shortlisted for your study abroad. There is no rule stating the number of universities that you can apply to. However, experts recommend students to apply to at least 6-7 universities at the time of applications. Remember that every university might have a separate application deadline and admission requirement.
Make it a point to send your applications before the university deadlines, this could be as early as 10 months before the start of the new academic year. It is always better to inquire with the respective universities before applying.
Mostly university websites provide access to fast and easy access to application forms, then also time is needed to research the options and get in touch with the teachers and institutions back at home for recommendation letters and transcripts.
The students applying for graduate schools need to submit exam scores like GRE or GMAT. In response the admission officer would send the information regarding the academic programs and application form of the university.
The fees for each application may vary from US$35- US$100. This application processing fees is non-refundable even if you don’t get admission in the university. In case the application is mailed, contact the admission office of the specific College to make sure that they have received your application.
The admissions office would review your past academic background. If you are attending any school than you need to mail certified academic record or the transcript to the US universities you are applying to. Before appearing for the admission tests, assemble the official score reports to be sent to the universities where you seek admission.
International students need to take either IELTS or TOEFL, which are language tests that measure their English proficiency skills. These tests can be taken at various centers spread across the world. These tests are standardized in nature, thus the admission score is uniform measuring the English language ability of the candidates.
The test scores are directly sent to the US universities that you have applied to. At the time of test registration you need to specify the names of the US universities where you have filled the application form.
After the application deadline is over, you start getting acceptance letters from the chosen US universities. Few of the universities update the candidates about their acceptance after they receive the documents. On the other hand many universities have several months wait time to inform all candidates in one go.
As soon as the admission is secured you need to deposit fees by a given deadline, so that their space is reserved in the academic semester.
