generally top universities in USA such as MIT, Stanford, Columbia University, etc. require a minimum TOEFL score of 100 for you to get selected. That being said, having a strong profile(with good work experience, overall good scores, SOP, etc.) could definitely help you get in if you've got a lower score than that.

RE: Eligibility for Bachelors.
Hey Robert, the US education system expects you to complete 12 years of education i.e you should be done with your basic 10+2 years of education. A diploma can be of different duration of time, ranging from 6months to a maximum of 3 years which, may or may not be accepted by US universities. Even if the diploma you did is in the relevant course, it is mostly not accepted unless your university states otherwise. So, in conclusion to your question, it depends upon the university you choose if they accept a diploma for admission to a Bachelor's degree.
RE: Tips to write an SOP.
Hey Aaron, your SOP makes or breaks your application, so writing a good SOP is the most important part of your admission process. A statement of purpose is all about you, your goals, motivation to take up the course, your achievements, your hobbies, grades, experiences, etc. We all want to highlight all the good things in our SOP but it is also important for us to be honest about everything we write. Therefore, as far as your grades are concerned, you should definitely mention your scores and the reason for having low scores, but if possible, gloss over the low scores if they are not that important. For example, if your grades are good in all the semesters but one semester, then you should avoid writing it in your SOP. But if you want to write it then just give a genuine reason for it.

RE: UK vs USA for Masters in Architecture.
Hi Sid, usually, the universities expect you to complete your Bachelor's in Architecture from a known college or university. You have to give an entrance exam for it and GRE is the most accepted exam. The top tier universities usually accept around 300-320 GRE scores and a good portfolio which includes all your previous done work or architecture models. If you're thinking of applying to the universities in the USA and UK then the UK has comparatively lower tuition fees and other expenses. But if you are looking for universities that give good ROI then US universities are best there is.
RE: Application process for Korean Universities.
The Korean education system is gaining fast renown for having a difficult yet thorough curriculum. And there are both public and private universities which offer different types of courses. There are courses from Architecture to Engineering, Arts, Literature, Medicine, Linguistics, Maths, etc. The average tuition fees for a Korean university is about $4k-$5k USD per annum and the living expense for an international student is about $6k USD per annum. So, it is affordable for international students who want to study there. There are also many scholarships available. Some provided by universities and some by organizations. If you have a D-2 or D-4 visa then you are allowed to work part-time there. 20 hours for undergraduate and 30 hours for postgraduate students. But this can change depending upon the university you are applying for. Sungkyunkwan University, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Hanyang University, etc. are some of the most famous universities in Korea.
RE: MS in International Business in Canada.
Hey Smantha, Most of the universities in Canada need a minimum of 6.5 IELTS score for an MS degree, with each band no lesser than 6 or 6.5 out of 9. But IELTS is not the only thing that matters, your overall profile also plays an important role. However, looking at your scores, it shouldn't be difficult for you to get into your preferred university. There are some universities who need 7.0 or more as an IELTS score. For example, the University of Waterloo mostly accepts 7.0 band as an IELTS score. Some Nursing and medical colleges also want 7.0 or more as an IELTS score. So I think your scores look fine and if you are lucky and your profile is up to mark, then you will definitely get admission in most Canadian universities for an International Business program.

RE: Interior Design in the USA.
Hey Prateek, each country has there own style and concepts regarding the interior of a house or any other building for that matter. While there is an immense influence of all these cultures on each other, the fact is, each country has its own specializations. Therefore, depending upon the kind of specializations you want to choose, your education destination will vary. For example, if you are looking for a modern design then choose the US, and if you want to learn European design, then choose European countries like the UK, France or Ireland. Each country provides a new and different type of designing curriculum. Choose a country that suits your design style and if affordable and provides a good ROI.
RE: I have a low GPA, what should i do?
Hi Shruti, your application depends upon your overall profile. Universities consider factors such as your GRE/TOEFL/IELTS score, if you have job experience, and if you have some research papers published, etc. It also helps a lot of you have any volunteering experience. So, if your profile is impressive enough then a low GPA is not that big of an issue. And if you have not started yet, start building your profile. A strong profile increases your chances of getting into the program and the university of your choice. You can also look for universities that have low GPA eligibility criteria.
