Have you ever wondered how an Indian Student’s Journey to USA begins? It begins with a complex decision making process that only Indian’s can possibly understand.

The decision making circle, is large and ever growing. All it takes is one strong opinion from one of your trusted decision maker to derail the entire decision making process.

When an Indian student  have a shadow of an idea about Studying in USA, there is this cycle of convincing that has to take place within group “Trusted Decision Making Circle“.

Here’s how that decision making process could look like ( with a  funny element ).

Indian Student's Journey to America

 

Conclusion

Have you gone through similar decision-making cycle? I think pretty much each an every Indian student can relate to the above process.

  • For some students it maybe just their immediate family member.
  • For others it may take a lot of effort to convince your so-called “dad’s friend who you call as uncle”.
  • Sometime, it could be your mom’s sister or her husband.
  • Sometimes your puppy ( seriously kidding).

When a decision like sending a son or  a daughter to Study in USA comes into question, no stones will be left unturned, till everyone’s on board.

Guess what?

All it takes is a Strong Negative opinion from one person in the “Decision Making Circle” to derail the entire process at any stage of your journey to USA ( admission, F1 visa and travel to America).

That’s India. That’s complex decision-making process at work.  That’s how decisions are made and that’s how decision will be made.

 

For some, it make take weeks, months or even years to get “Yes Nod” from your “Decision Making Circle”.
