Here’s another blog from one of our Academy’s stars, Adheesh Gokhale, who scored a superb 338. What makes his performance even more creditable is that he was a working student. So, his is another inspiring story to let you know that getting a great score is possible.
Finally, with apologies for my procrastination (you can look up the meaning of the word here; I won’t tell you! :)) here’s my blog. Now, let’s get down to business.
US is the #1 choice for Indians going abroad for higher education
Today, the dream of getting a US degree is no longer something that only the “rich” can dream of. Now many students from middle class backgrounds can also get higher education in the US, without putting a huge financial burden on their parents. This is evident from the recent trends:
Overall, the number of Indian students going abroad for education increased 256% in 2000-2009
An estimated 21 million students will be admitted into American universities in Fall 2013
The facts also show that America is the most popular educational destination especially for engineering and business:
The top three destinations for Indian students going abroad are: #1 America, #2 Europe, #3 Australia
America dominates, with a lion’s share of over 50% of the students
The top two streams at American grad schools are Engineering & Business
There is great demand for higher education in the US.
