“It is not easy. Working hard is the only way to survive through it. At the same time perception of a life changes for better.”
This aptly summed up the life of a student in United States and how it helps build careers at ‘Aspire US 2012’, an awareness camp on US education organised by US Grads, a network of US Graduates and Aspirants.
Eminent people from the US shared their personal experiences and ground realities with the students. Few parents whose kids are now studying in the US shared their emotions in sending their wards to US for further study and also talked about how proud they are of their kids.
The event started off with a testimonial from one of the student currently pursuing his Master’s Programme in the US who spoke about the whole process right from preparing for it till the time they reached their respective universities to pursue his Masters in the US. Amit from George Mason University explained the process and student’s life on the campus.
Dheeraj Gorukanti, Director, Yashoda Hospitals and a US Graduate himself, mentioned the unique and useful things which he has inculcated as a student at Duke University in USA. His wife Suguna, another US Graduate, from Duke University discussed with students about the critical points they should definitely consider in their pursuit of quality education.
Sai Manohar Rudramaina, CEO and Founder of US Grads and an alumnus of Oklahoma State University told students that the process starts much before one takes the admission tests like GRE and GMAT.
Mr. Rudramaina highlighted a few delicate things which most of the aspirants otherwise don’t think are very influential like the University Selection, Admissions Procedure, universities’ vision, etc.
Some videos about life and education in USA were also shown to the students demystifying US education.
