  • RE: How to get 100% scholarship for MBA in USA?

    Hey Manas, I'm glad to hear you liked Ashish's video about how to get a 100% scholarship! He has many other helpful videos for international students. You can check them out here!
    In answer to your question, a really high score in your GMAT exam doesn't always guarantee 100% scholarships. But for you to get into the top 20 universities, a score of 750-760 is recommended. A score higher than that can increase your chances of getting a scholarship. Other factors that have a play in this are your GPA, writing sample, LOR, your overall profile, work experience, etc. You could check this blog that will help you understand how to get into the university of your choice on a budget. Hope the answer helps!

    Hi! The GPA criteria depends on the university you're applying for. Every college has its own GPA standards.

The anticipated GPA for other universities is at least 2.76 or above. All matters are taken into consideration, the minimal GPA considered is at least 2.6 or above.

  • RE: How to transfer money?

    Hey there! While there are many methods of transferring money while studying abroad, here are the most common methods of doing so.

    1. Your Bank: Your own bank can help you transfer money, but they generally charge high-interest rates to do so.
    2. E-Transfers: some institutions allow people to transfer money online to other people. To transfer money to international accounts you shall need a SWIFT or IBAN number.
    3. Paypal: Paypal could also be a method that you could transfer money through. they generally charge about 3-4% of the transfer as commission for it though.
    4. Cash: Cash could also be a method through which you could transfer money. This is generally not encouraged as it is highly unsafe to transfer money through the mail or other means abroad.

  • RE: How to choose program

    Hey Radhika,
    While choosing your Major/Minor to study abroad, you should consider these factors:

    1. Career Analysis: Check and find out the careers that could stem out of the Major you select. If you are not sure about what you want to do, make sure to choose a course that doesn't specialize too much so that you have the flexibility of choosing a variety of careers in that path.
    2. Earning Potential: Understand the prospective remittance that you could get after your bachelors to understand whether the Return on investment is worth it or not.
    3. Subjects that you love: Decide on a subject that you have an interest in. Doing a course that you don't like will eventually pull you down and hinder you from performing to the best of your abilities.
      It should be noted that different students will prioritize the different points mentioned based on their preferences. We at iSchoolConnect could help you make a well-informed decision to achieve your study abroad dreams. You could also contact us for further information.

  • RE: University Application

    Hey Rutuja,

    These are great questions and I'll try and answer all your questions as systematically as possible. Both scholarships and university applications depend upon your overall profile. Factors such as your Statement of Purpose, Letters of recommendation, Certifications, Social work, etc. along with your scores, play a major role in your application.
    Being an 'undecided major' allows you to enter your chosen college without declaring a major and thus, allows you to explore your interests. Your SOP is what sets your profile apart from the other applicants'. Therefore, it's a highly important aspect.
    Since the IELTS exam is more widely accepted, you can definitely try taking it. However, it still largely depends upon the country you choose.

    In order to make an exact analysis, we'd need your exam scores and other details. But depending upon the program and university you choose, as long as you have a solid profile overall you can definitely get into top universities. If you need help choosing the right program/university based on your scores and preferences, you can always contact us or register with us. Hope the answer helped!

  • RE: How to prepare for the IELTS speaking test?

    Speaking test is an interview with the examiner which lasts up to 11-14 minutes. The test consists of 3 tasks. Task one is typically an introduction or an interview wherein the examiner asks the candidate for a personal introduction. The interview can go on for about 4-5 minutes. In the second task, a task card is given to the candidate containing a topic to speak on. 1 minute is given to jot down the notes and 1-2 minutes are given to talk on the given topic. At the end of the 2 minutes, the examiner can ask a couple of questions based on your topic. Task three is related to the previous task. The topic from task two is discussed in depth and in an abstract way. This task can end up for 4-5 minutes. In some cases, the speaking test is conducted on a different day. For more info check out
