There’s a growing concern – what does Coronavirus or COVID 19 pandemic mean for international students who are hoping to study in USA? Following information is VERY IMP if you are considering MS in USA, MBA or Bachelor’s in USA.

Nistha’s Study Abroad Meetup on 23 Aug

We held a discussion on WHY YOU MUST APPLY for MS in USA for 2021 ASAP. In a highly interactive session, Nistha discussed how things are shaping up for 2021. We are sharing the recording for a LIMITED TIME.


What happened so far?

International students who were supposed to join Grad Schools in 2020 ended up deferring their admissions to Spring 2021 or Fall 2021 (if allowed).

Meanwhile, Trump threw few curveballs gathering the wrath of international students alike. He first suspended new H1B visa issuance, then he asked all international students to leave USA, then he was sued by Harvard and MIT which made him take back his attack on F1 students. However, it turned out that any new student starting his classes in 2020 wasn’t allowed to enter USA physically in Fall 2020. Last week, Trump also loosened the strict suspension of new H1B visas.

As you can see, a LOT is happening. This brings us to the VERY IMP Q – What will happen to the applications next year? Should you apply or not.

Our answer is 200% YES. You should – no, you need to – apply. Why? Hear Nistha talk about it on 23rd Aug.
