Does it really matter that you must be coming from an IIT, NIT to get an MS in USA with scholarship?

Pooja Jadhav,

It doesn’t matter whether you are from an IIT or NIT until you have an excellent academic profile with high CGPA and great research papers, projects and internships. . Now as for scholarships, yes there are scholarships that are purely based on merit. However, not all scholarships are just for meritorious students. In fact it is just a myth that scholarships go to only the merit students. There are many types of scholarships and merit scholarships is just one among them.
