Indian admissions up in U.S.
260 views

The number of Indians getting offers for admission from U.S. universities for session starting 2011 fall has gone up by 8 % after declining steadily from 2007, according to a report released on Tuesday 16th August 2011. The number of offers has itself gone up by 11% over 2010 and the largest share of it were cornered by Chinese students at 23 % - as they have in the past, followed by West Asia and Turkey with 16 %.

Indian admissions up in U.S.

The rise for India comes on the back of an increase in applications by exactly 8%. The report, published by the Council of Graduate Schools, expects the number of applications from India to continue rising.
In fact, the report said the declining trend - pertaining to the number of applications from India and offers of admission to students from there have been reversed and will climb. The study doesn’t give exact numbers at it is based on institutions’ voluntary participation, and not all respond - only 291 of the 493 US universities and colleges, which are members of the council, responded. They received 591,739 applications and made 140,373 offers of admission.

The study, however, makes no mention of the kind of colleges and universities that Indian students have been noticed flocking too lately to get into the US on student visa, intending actually to find employment. Tri Valley University in California was raided and shut down earlier this year by US authorities for enrolling foreign students and letting them work outside in the name of coursework, but not required to attend classes.

Most of the 1,500 students who found themselves thrown out and deprived of student visas were Indians, some of whom were also detained for questioning. A large number of them were rehabilitated on the intervention of the Indian embassy. Another such college - now in Virginia - is faced with a similar problem. And most of its students are again from India. The council makes no mention of such colleges and such like admissions. The council could not be immediately contacted for comments.
