  1. Hello guys,
    I got admitted to the PhD program in chemical engineering at university of Missouri columbia, but they didnt yet responded anything about the funding, then I contacted proffs ,none of them have active projects, I am now waiting for the reply from university of missouri. If I have to fund my self I will dropout the offer and will look for the other univs I applied.Actually I think most of the average universities in US are now reluctant to issuing funding to PhD programs . I had seen many in the US education blogs/sites with the same issue that is ‘got admitted but without funding’. Can any body suggest me what to do now?

  2. Wanted to point out a problem with that analysis of NPTEL – not all courses taught in the IITs are on NPTEL; in fact, only a small fraction are. It depends on the IIT in question and also on the Department in that IIT. It could be possible that advanced courses are taught in the IITs but are not on NPTEL.
