Question – 1 – Financial Aid and I-20

I am a regular to HSB and follow it quite well. I am glad that i learnt a lot about pursuing education in USA. Please pardon my ignorance in the matter that i am about to ask…

I applied to 5 universities and am waiting for my i-20 (feels like forever!! Waiting sucks.. :'( )

My doubt is, does the i-20 come along with my financial aid..??

I mean when a school grants me an i-20 does it also include a financial aid along with it..?

If not how do i get an aid..?

Please pardon my ignorance regarding the issue. Even though i come from a financially well off family, i want to do my MS on my money (well at least most of it). So, i kinda need the support badly..!

Answer –  Specialization, Cost of MS, Job Search


  1. @Mirnalini: Glad to hear that you want to continue your career in Electrical Engineering. I’m glad because everyone comes here and finishes their Master’s in EE but detours to Software side. Since you said that you graduated from Electrical and Electronics Engg., be specific that in which way you want to go i.e., Power Engg., Networking or Embedded. If you want to opt for Power Engg., select universities carefully because not all universities offer Power Engg. courses in every semester. Usually the ratio of Indian students coming for Power Engg. compared to other streams will be much lower. But there are quite good job offers for Power Engg. Anyways good luck to your career.
