Study in the USA
The USA remains the top destination for international students who are seeking an elite, globally recognized education. Unlike many developed countries, the US has outstanding universities in both the private and public sector. They have private schools that are household names just about anywhere you go like Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and NYU. Same goes for their elite public schools like the University of Michigan, the UC Berkeley and UCLA.
These universities attract students that are not only very strong academically, but are very well rounded and exhibit a good general set of skills and a clear passion for a certain subject. In line with this, most US universities admit students holistically, meaning the whole application, not just test scores and grades, are taken into account. They also produce groundbreaking and heavily cited research, sometimes even at the undergraduate level, with the work of some of the world's mosy renowned academics who are recognized as leaders in their respective fields.
Frequently, the required materials for admission are an SAT or ACT score from a test administered by the College Board, an application from the Common App, Recommendation Letters, Essays and an English proficiency test, often the TOEFL.
