FOREIGN STUDENTS WHO ASPIRE TO ATTEND ELITE U.S. UNIVERSITIES AND STUDENTS WHO ALREADY STUDY IN THE U.S. OFTEN STRUGGLE WITH THREE CRITICAL CHALLENGES
Foreign children, who aspire to pursue undergraduate (or graduate) degrees from highly- selective U.S. universities, face three intractable challenges (which, each year, are becoming increasingly difficult to overcome):
After adjusting for inflation, the cost of tuition at public and private universities increased by 3x and 2x, respectively, between 1988 and 2018.
Securing admissions to highly selective U.S. universities has never been more challenging, especially for international students and even more so from countries such as India, China and South Korea.
International students face limited opportunities upon graduation due to (i) the uncertainty of the H-1B visa lottery and thus (ii) the general reluctance for top companies to recruit international students who require employer sponsorship.
