The Value of the Dollar
The USA is made up of 50 states and is one of the largest countries in the world in terms of land mass and size. The country covers different time zones and the climate varies from the freezing cold of Alaska to the pleasant tropical climate of Hawaii.
American is world’s most powerful economy. Be it the Great Depression of 1929 or the latest recession, it is the American dollar that dictates terms in the modern world.
There are a lot of scholarships options (International Student Loans ) available for Indian students as well. These scholarships will help reduce the financial burden of studying in the US.
With a fair mix of people of Caucasian, African and Asian origin; the USA is a land of opportunity that offers shelter, support and success to those who work hard and persevere. Slavery might have been abolished long back and an Afro-American may be the President of the USA; but it is an inconvenient truth that racism still exists in quite a few cities.
Overall, the people are friendly, open-minded and very frank and love speaking to others. This is unlike life in the UK, where conversation among strangers
in public places is rare.
Law and Safety
As a student in the USA, it is important that one is aware of one’s rights and the local laws, which one should follow. All leading institutions conduct a ‘Student Orientation Programme’, which helps the student acclimatise to life in the USA.
Research by leading educational agencies and student recruitment firms suggest that the MBA and an MS in Computers, Bio-technology and Electronics are amongst the most popular courses in the USA. Other specialised post-graduate courses in streams like medicine, cosmetic surgery, para-psychology, diabetes-research and genetics are also extremely popular.
Highly Valued Degree
With stiff competition from countries like the UK, Singapore and Australia; American institutions are going all out to woo students from Asian countries. The change in the value of the US Dollar and the poor performance of some Asian currencies are worrying factors that may lead to a decline in the number of students opting for an education in the USA.
But in spite of all this, the value of an American University education has not declined. A degree from a reputed American institute is valued highly all around the world and students who seek to impress employers should seriously consider studying in the US.
