      Check Fall 2021 Deadlines for MS in USA


      The US has been the top attractant for foreign students for decades, especially from the STEM fields because of the presence of several technology hubs and also due to the recent changes in the H-1B visa rules (effective from April 30, 2019). So, it’s not a surprise that several MS aspirants aim at the US every year. The acceptance rates at the top US universities (Ivy League and Elite Schools) are around 5 – 7%. The figure is slightly encouraging for other universities, but it’s still very competitive. One of the keys to getting the edge over other applicants is getting started early. Hence, it is very important to know the application deadlines and GRE scores requirements.
