A ROUGH CALCULATION OF EXPENDITURE IN MS IN USC

Following are the calculations for financial commitment from students in the worst case.

Maximum costs are taken in all cases and we might have to do the
calculations ourselves for different combinations of items with lesser
costs
 
Total Education Cost : 27 credits*1560$ = 42120$

Total Living expense : 24 months *600$ = 14400$

Total mandatory cost including insurance:  937*4 semesters = 4000$
So total expense = 60520$ -> Rs.  32,06,000 (current conversion rate)

Max to Max you will spend this much if you spend dollars in limit.

like avoid eating outside, avoid expensive material, buy second hand stuff etc etc..
Now lets take real life scenario:
Lets take expenses in first semester:

***********************************************************

First semester:

You will register for 9 credits:

Education Cost : 9*1560$ = 14040$

Living expense : 6*600$ = 3600$
If you do on campus job say 14hrs/week (You can work max 20 Hrs/week
but people work for 12-14 hrs) Ė> you will earn 8$/hr :So in 5 months
 month

(say 1 month you took to search any job) you will earn around : $8 * 14 hrs * 20 (weeks) : $2240
So in first semester you will spend : 14040 + 3600 Ė 2240 = 15400$ ->8,16,000.
***********************************************************

Similarly you will spend same amount in second semester.
If you take RCL in second semester then in second semester you will pay for only 6 credits.
now after second semester you will get an internship if you maintain good grades.

So in internship you will work for say atleast 10 weeks.Average pay in internship is 25$/Hr
Money earned in internship : 25$ * 40 hrs * 10 weeks= 10000$
So Finally if i conclude this:
Total Education Cost as stated earlier : 27*1560$ = 42120$

Total Living expense as stated earlier : 24*600$ = 14400$
total money earned oncampus in 3 semesters: 2240 * 4 = 8960$

total money earned in internship: 10000$
TOTAL MONEY YOU WILL ACTUALLY SPEND

= 42120 + 14400 +4000 Ė 8960 Ė 10000= 41560$ Rs. 21,00,000.
Hope this calculation helps.Please excuse me if i have done some calculation mistakes

US University Selection Factors
[ol][li]Tuition fees[/li][li] Cost of Living[/li][li] Jobs after M.S.[/li][li] Internship[/li][li] Length of the program[/li][li] Thesis/Non-Thesis[/li][li] International Student Population[/li][li] Quality of Education[/li][li] Climate/Location[/li][li] Current Student Satisfaction[/li][li] Can you Afford[/li][li]Crime Rate in the area[/li][/ol]
Next post will discuss above 12 factors in detail. You have to
understand that university selection is time consuming process. If you
decide to do it on your own, it can be overwhelming for most of you.
With so many universities in USA that offers wide variety of courses and
 degree, it will be tough to decide on best 10 universities to apply for
 admission. Just the effort alone differentiates prospective students
from rest of the group
You may have more than one dream universities to apply, but you can
attend only one school. You have to analyze each university methodically
 to short universities. Most of the students donít ask the following
questions while selecting US Universities. They end up in some school
that doesnít offer the program of their choice ( or aid).
1) Cost of US Education
First major factor is to select university that you can afford. In
worst case scenario, you have to pay for 2 years expense.  You have to
ask some tough question here with respect to affordability.
2) Tuition fees

In-state fees varied between University System. For example, in
University of Texas System, if you get RA, TA, Scholarship, you are
eligible to pay in-state fee. And In-state fee in University of Texas is
 1/3rd of Out of state fee.
Example: Out of State Fee = $6000, then in-state will be $2,000
In some colleges, you donít need to pay anything, maybe less than
$1000 for health insurance and other small fees when you get In-State
fees.
Example: University of Memphis, Out of state is $5000 then In-state will be less than $1000.
If In-state fee is minimal fee then HP = 10
If In-state fee is 1/3rd of the out-state or less then HP = 5
3) RA/TA/Scholarship
If you have admission with 100% RA/TA/scholarship then HP = 10
If you have you have partial scholarship/RA/TA then HP = 7
If you have like $1000 to $4000 in Aid then HP = 5
No RA/TA/Scholarship then HP = 0
4) Part Time Job
Find from the current students, about availability of the part time jobs.
If almost every students gets the job then HP = 10
If 50% of the students gets job the HP = 5
If No Part time jobs are available then HP = 0
5) Internship
As International student you are eligible to work for 1 year in CPT
(Curriculum Practical Training). Students usually get internship in
summer, but some schools allow students to work to 2 full semesters like
 UTA, UTD.

You have to find if the university you have the admission allows
students to do internship and how long. Kansas State University will
allow students only in Summer in CPT. Were as UTA will allow students to
 do internship for 2 semesters ( like Summer and Fall  or Fall and
Spring or Spring and Fall ).
Next you have to ask if the internship is under CPT or under OPT
(Optional Practical Training). If the school allows internship under CPT
 then you are ok. If the school allows internship under your OPT, then
itís NOT ok to attend that school. For example Clemson University,
internship is under OPT, which is not good. I will explain in later post
 on what is OPT and CPT.
So this is how HP has to be filled for this field
Schools also internship for more than 1 semester in CPT = 10
Schools allows internship in Summer ONLY in CPT = 5
If school allows internship in OPT = 0
If school doesnít allow Internship = 0
6) Jobs after M.S.
But, majority of colleges, students have to look for jobs.
Majority of the colleges have Career Fair, where companies will visit
 campus and collect resumes. But the number of companies that usually
come are very less. Some universities like NCSU have very high profile
career fair.
If the college has campus recruitment program, then HP = 10
If you have to look for jobs then HP = 8
If majority of the students find jobs through consultants, then HP = 3
For example I have heard that in NJIT, majority of student donít
search for jobs, they graduate and join some consultancy firm. Thatís
not a good sign. Itís students responsibility to search for a job, if
you are willing to put that efforts and expect the job offer to know on
your door, without applying for jobs, then Iím sure student will have
tough time. I know I was little harsh on the above statement, but I have
 seen so many people who after graduation, donít apply for job
proactively and end up joining some consultancy.7) Course Length
This is another important factor you have to consider while deciding
the colleges. Some programs are very lengthy. Majority of the masters
program in the graduate college will vary from 30 credits to 36 credits.
 Make sure, have have information about different courses offered in the
 college you are applying. If you want to major in Database, check if
the college has courses offered in database field.

But, if you are transferring to different department, then you will
be asked to take pre-requisites courses. For example, if you are moving
from Mechanical Department to Computer Science to from Electrical to
Computer Science, then for sure you will be asked to take undergraduate
courses in Computer Science, before you can take masters course.
Sometimes you will be asked to take up to 7 pre-req courses (7 x 3 =
21 credits). Thatís 3 semesters. So, you need 21 + 32 credits to finish
Masters. Thatís 3.5 years for M.S. If you donít have aid, then students
will have to pay for 3.5 years.
If no pre-requirements then HP = 10
No Pre-requirements and max of 36 credits then HP = 10
1 or 2 pre-requirements then HP = 7
3 or 4 pre-requirements, HP = 5
More than 5 pre-requirements, then HP = 3
8 ) Thesis/Non-Thesis
In Masterís program you will have 2-3 options to take course. In
thesis, you will have to solve a problem and present a paper. Personally
 I donít like to do research, when Iím not interested to do PhD, so I
did Non-Thesis Option, which is just courses and graduate with Masters
Degree.
If you are more interested to do thesis, then HP to 10
If you just want a degree to get good job and salary then HP = 10
To find this, read about the program in the department website and
find what options you have and give HP to 10 if you are interested to do
 Thesis and the program has thesis option. If a particular school
doesnít have Non-thesis option and you are not interested to do Thesis,
then put HP = 5
9) International Student Population
This has both advantages and disadvantages. You will fell at home
with large number of Indian students around, but fewer chances to find
part time jobs and scholarship. Some colleges have very less
International Students, but Iím sure you will feel very lonely; you
might have to stay with students from different county. So, weigh the
advantages and dies-advantages and score HP.
I would prefer to stay in school with more International Students
than college where there are very less number of students from your
country. Anywhere from 100 to 200 students from your country is
considered good.
10) Quality of Education
Letís say you have admission from TAMUK, University of Alabama,
Birmingham and NJIT. I would decide to go with UAB. Reason, itís cheap,
much better than TAMUK with more professors and more choice of courses
and cheaper then NJIT with courses almost similar to NJIT.

So, weight HP of 10 for UAB, NJIT to 5 and TAMUK to 2
11) Climate/Location
Here, you have to weigh the options according to your preference.
Good college vs. Cold Temperature. If you really good college admission
in North, and ready to deal with the cold, then HP to 10, if not give
less value for HP.
12) Current Student Satisfaction
To answer this, ask the current students to rate their college
experience in the scale of 1 to 10 and make sure you ask at least some 5
 students and take an average.
Now, you will have total value for all the university that has the maximum value gets the go ahead signal for Visa.

COMMON ERRORS TO AVOID IN GRE

- All Questions are NOT equal
The questions on the GRE generally get
tougher towards the end of a section.
More
so if you are cruising along the 90
percentile+ level.
Double check EVERY answer for the first
10 questions
The GRE is an adaptive test, which means
that the level of difficulty of a question
changes depending upon your
performance.
The weightage of the first few questions
is much higher than the last few
questions.
Many students make the mistake of
treating all questions as equal.
This is probably the most important pitfall
to avoid. You need to be doubly sure
about
the first ten questions than the ones that
come later, especially at the end.
- Do NOT leave any section unfinished
The penalty for unfinished questions is
much higher than incorrect answers. Do
NOT
become emotionally involved with any
question. Even if you think the question
is
outrageously difficult or outright incorrect.
Just guess and move on.
It is not simply that you will NOT get
marks for each unfinished question, on
the other
hand you are highly likely to be Penalized
for leaving a section unfinished.
You need to be very careful of this pitfall
and if running short on time, take a
random
guess and try to finish the section, rather
than leaving questions unmarked.
- Know that time can be your biggest
enemy
Certain questions by their very nature
take more time to answer. The first step
to
better time management is to recognize
these questions.
While doing your practice tests, try to
become more aware of how much time
you
have taken to answer a question. You will
soon begin to develop an Internal Clock
that will help you meet the pacing
requirements of the GRE and reduce test
anxiety.
- Make good use of the Scratch Paper
Many of the GRE questions, in both the
Verbal and the Quant sections, require
use
of the Scratch paper.
Please keep in mind that you may not be
able to get as much scratch paper as you
need. Learn to confine your rough work
to a minimum in order not to run into
problems at the actual GRE Exam.
- Compare & Discard
This is immensely useful for the Verbal
section of the GRE Exam.
While there may be a 'Perfect' answer to
a question, it may not appear as one of
the
options. What you need to do is compare
the different answer choices and choose
the best one available.
In fact you canusually zero down on two
choices and discard the ones that are
distinctly different from these two.
- Use Short cuts Only when necessary
As I have explained in detail in my book
'Ways of the GRE Winners', it is extremely
important to be aware of all the possible
shortcuts that are available to you.
However, these are to be used with
extremely caution, especially for the first
15
questions in each section. This is
important if you need an overall score of
1400+.
- Analyze your Strengths & Weaknesses
and create a study plan unique to
these.
The important thing here is to stick to
your study plan.
- Managing Test Anxiety
More than anything else, the GRE is an
test of your nerves. There are hundreds
of
brilliant students who score MUCH lower
in the GRE than they do in their practice
tests.
It is important to manage your test
anxiety. You can try using techniques like
'Thought Stopping', 'Self-Talk' and
'Visualization.
- The obvious answer is the Wrong
Answer
There is a catch here. While the obvious
answer is indeed the Correct one in the
beginning of a section, when the
questions are easier, towards the end,
the obvious
answer (the one you can guess without
spending much time on), is likely to be
the
wrong one, so be careful.
- PLAN YOUR ESSAYS
Take three to five minutes to think before
you write. Pick a direction and stick to it,
Write for 20 to 25 minutes-and say
something meaningful & coherent Use
your last
few minutes to proofread your work. Also,
be sure to write neatly. If the essay
scorers
can't read your essay, they can't score it,
Indent your paragraphs deeply and follow
established essay-writing procedures. Set
up your theme in an introductory
paragraph. Include a couple of paragraphs
with
examples that back up your position.
Finally, wrap up with a conclusion.
Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere.

Money earned in internship : 25$ * 40 hrs * 10 weeks= 10000$
So Finally if i conclude this:

Total Living expense as stated earlier : 24*600$ = 14400$
total money earned oncampus in 3 semesters: 2240 * 4 = 8960$

total money earned in internship: 10000$
TOTAL MONEY YOU WILL ACTUALLY SPEND

= 42120 + 14400 +4000 Ė 8960 Ė 10000= 41560$ Rs. 21,00,000.
Hope this calculation helps.Please excuse me if i have done some calculation mistakes
