WHY YOU ARE MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE WHILE APPLYING?
When you go to a counselor for university research in accordance with your profile, what they actually do is they try to give you more safe universities. The universities that they’ll show as ambitious would be moderate and moderate one’s would be safe. The safe bet that they actually provide are universities where you’d get scholarships for applying but are not that good. Taking a decent profile like 320 GRE, 3.7 GPA(70-75%) for good universities in India, Decent profile and LOR, for these type of profiles, best colleges for you suppose if you want to pursue MS in CS would be USC, NCSU, UFL, STONY BROOk etc, while what they actually provide with a list of colleges such as NEU, SYRACUSE, BUFFALO, UTD etc. So please don’t opt for a counselor, there are many options available to help you out, sites like Stupidsid.com and msinus.com contain very good information regarding this process. One thing that you need to make sure is that before you give your GRE TEST or Toefl test, you do a through university research which suits your profile.
Hence, to make use of those 4 free option which ETS provides, i.e. ETS give you opportunity to send your GRE TEST or TOEFL TEST scores for free to any university department. This is the most primary thing that you’d miss and this would cost you a lot later on when you’ll fill in your application as if you wish to send your GRE score it would cost you 25$ for each department and 18$ for TOEFL scores.
Now the primary agenda which i wanted to discuss over here was why the choice of your university or you choice of going to US would be just like you chose to be an engineer after high school, without knowing the job scenario, without knowing the research facilities and education quality of the institute you’d enter. These things are important but the point is at that point of time no one realizes it and all of us suffer when we start to feel it when we reach 3rd year and start to plan ahead.
Let me ask you some questions, Do you know about the job scenario in US? Do you know that job opportunities depend a lot on a particular state? Do you know state laws are different in US, laws that effect tax when you start working 20 hrs a week? Do you know how bad weather is in some states of US? Do you know what is the amount of time you’d get to get a job in US after your graduation? The simple answer is “NO”, “bs josh josh mai sair karne jare ho kya, ek baar galti kar chuke ho, now be ready for everything in advance”.
