MS in US – The Guide

DISCLAIMER: The content written in the article is based on my experience. Some points are unsupported and I assure you that these won’t, in any possible way, make your experience adverse.

I’ll try to be as specific as I can in the writing, leaving out the trivial details. Each of the following posts will have two parts –
i)  My Experience (Skip this section if you’re in a hurry) : What I knew before the event and my thoughts throughout the process.
ii) What you must know : Detailed explanation of the event.

Do not get confused by the terms I use to address a university. A school (Graduate School) or a program (Graduate Program) refers to the same. Also, any term underlined is a URL and can be clicked upon.
