18: 5 Things to Consider for Master of Science (MS) in US

What should you consider for pursuing MS in US? There might be several questions in your mind as you explore this question. In this episode we cover some of the main things to consider before you make the decision. I also go into details about things which I wish I knew before coming to US for MS.  The things I cover in the podcast are to consider for MS in US are:  1)  Location matter more than rankings. 2) Talk to professors before applying. 3) Culture of hard work, and advantage of having prior work experience. 4) Cost is High and low cost alternates. 5) Visa situation is uncertain.
