Dear Mentor:

How can I find out about college in the US?

BS in US, Pakistan

Dear BS in US:

The iMahal Education Section can answer many of your questions. While the specific requirements for admission vary across schools, the basic requirements for admission to a Bachelor's degree program include: completion of high school with at least 12 years of education, scores on standardized entrance exams SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) and TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language), and letters of recommendation.

You can identify the colleges that best meet you performance and personal needs by using the iMahal College Finder. Most schools offer application forms and state specific requirements on their website. You are required to submit the completed application form and necessary documentation to prospective schools.

One caution: The cost of education is very high in the US. It ranges anywhere from $15,000 to $45,000 per year. To make matters worse, virtually no financial assistance is available to international students. In other words, be prepared to spend a large amount of money from your own pocket, or from your family's pocket, if you want to pursue a Bachelor's degree program in the US.
