For a Masters program, your tuition fees for the colleges in the US can vary from $10,000 - $90,000 and more. However, there are many ways to obtain financial aid and if not, there are simpler ways to recover from the money you invest into your education. The first thing you should do when applying for scholarship is to reach out to the colleges and enquiring about their scholarships and grants. Schools like MIT (Scholarships worth $39,339), Johns Hopkins University (Scholarships worth $35,195), Northwestern University (Scholarships worth $34,882), and many others offer various scholarships for international students. There are many helpful blogs that tell you all about the financial aid for studying abroad. I got my info from this blog- 'How to fund your education abroad'. You can take a look if you wish. Hope the answer helped!

RE: What are the universities with the lowest tuition fees for Masters in Australia?
Your tuition fees depend upon a lot of factors such as the program and the courses that you opt for. For example, the fees for studying medicine in Australia and the fees for other masters courses differ greatly. Approximately, the tuition fees for most Masters courses are between 20,000 AUD to 37,000 AUD. While the tuition fees for high-value courses like Medicine can be between 33,000 AUD to 44,000 AUD. So based on what courses you want, the tuition fees can differ. But there are many universities that offer scholarships to international students. So you could search for that as well.
RE: Can someone pls tell me somethings about how to write the perfect essay for university?
Your statement of purpose(SOP) is a very important part of your university application. So here are a few things to keep in mind when rules that you should follow when you write your SOP:
- Don't boast of brag in your SOP.
- Try and make sure your content is to-the-point
- Make sure that if you're talking about accomplishments, you have some proof to back them up
- You must have a strong introduction so that it can captivate the reader and help you get selected
- Make sure to not write your SOPat the last minute because it can seem a little rushed
These are just a few points that I can think of. There are many other important writing points that you need to keep in mind when you write this. I read about all this in this blog about 'Mistakes to avoid while writing an SOP' (https://ischoolconnect.com/blog/5-mistakes-avoid-writing-powerful-statement-of-purpose/)

RE: Dilema as to what colleges prefer, B.tech scores or M.Tech scores?
Universities in the U.S will consider both, your M.Tech as well as B.Tech scores before they decide to give you admission in their colleges. When you apply to universities for MS in USA, already having a Masters degree and applying for a second one definitely boosts your profile and increases your chances of getting into the university of your choice. If you need suggestions on which universities to apply for MS in USA, take a look at this blog- https://ischoolconnect.com/blog/top-universities-for-ms-in-usa/
RE: On Campus Vs Off Campus
Choosing between On-campus and Off-campus can be tough. Usually Off Campus accommodations are cheaper as you can share a room/house with other people and on-campus costs more because universities tend to charge higher and provide better amenities. However, this may differ from university to university. On-Campus accommodations usually range from $800-$3000. These usually depend upon the universities, and you can check it out on their websites. For off-campus accommodation there are rentals and home stays. At rentals, you can get roommates to share your financial burdens. At home stays, you can get a homely feel as you get to stay with a family and you will get to know their culture .

RE: University rankings
If you open the QS chart, you'll see which factors they consider when they're ranking universities. These include research projects, publications, student-to-faculty ratio, and others. See which factors are important to you, and consider accordingly.
Other rankings include Times Higher Education and CWUR University Rankings.
RE: What to look for, when shortlisting a university
Some of the factors you should be considering include-
Location & weather
You can look at a few more here, before making your final decision.
Reach out to me if you need help.
RE: What is the ideal course duration for masters?
You'll have less time to get settled into your routine
Finishing your course might feel more hectic
You won't have as much time getting used to the experience
Will make you feel more relaxed...and able to do internships and your thesis
So, it depends. If you want to finish your course as soon as possible and get a job, go for the shorter duration course.
But if it's important for you to get in-depth knowledge and experience, and you prefer a comparatively slower pace...take the one with a longer duration.
RE: Private vs Public
This is not always true. There are several well-known public universities students compete to go to.
I mean, look at UCLA, Penn State University, UC Berkely, Rutgers, and University of Texas, Austin. They're great institutions, despite being public universities.
RE: Should the rumors about racism in Australia concern me?
No, it shouldn't.
Crimes happen all over the world and it would be unfair to single Australia out on this one. Don't let it stop you from getting the great quality of education Australia has to offer.
RE: Wisconsin or Maryland for Computer Science?
Maryland will keep you near DC - a metro area of countless national organizations to intern with, and endless activities and free museums. If you're considering only ROI, you know what to do.
The weather also matters. And Wisconsin is pretty cold.
RE: GMAT Rescheduling Charges during COVID
This is straight from the Graduate Management Admission Council (the GMAT Test Taker) -
"Our test-takers are our priority and to assist you during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily waived all exam cancellation, reschedule & score reinstatement fees for GMAT test-center based appointments. If you need to cancel, reschedule your appointment to another date/location, or if you have an existing GMAT score you would like to reinstate to finalize your application, you can do so at no charge."
