10. Columbia University In World University Ranking* IIT Delhi is ranked 218, IIT Bombay is ranked 225, IIT Madras is ranked 281, IIT Kanpur is ranked 306, IIT Kharagpur is ranked 341.IIT Roorkee is ranked 438 & IIT Guwahati is ranked 563. * Source: www.topuniversities.com Q 2. Ans.: Who should opt for USA UnivQuest Program? Anyone who wishes to get the best in the world. IITians prefer to do a Masters Degree from USA to improve their career prospects. Except for the IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras & IIT Roorkee, other IITs are struggling with basic issues of infrastructure and faculty. Choosing such an IIT could be disastrous. Anyone who is not a very strong contender for a very good rank in IIT-JEE to get a branch and IIT of his/her choice, should consider going to US University instead. It is much more challenging to get a good rank in the IIT-JEE than to get an admission in one of the top 10 US Universities. Thats why we say IF YOU CANT GO TO IITs WHERE SHOULD YOU GO? GO TO AN INSTITUTE FAR BETTER THAN THE IITs. Q 3. Ans.: How much does it cost to study at a US University? For four years it will cost about 1,00,000 (1 lac USD) to 1,60,000 (1.6 lac USD) i.e. about Rs. 54 lac to Rs. 72 lac for four years. For undergraduate courses including B. Tech / B.E. courses, there are practically no scholarships available. However Indian banks do give education loan for studies abroad. A B. Tech / B.E. from the USA costs a substantial amount but it is the best investment. Q 4. Ans.: What are my chances of getting a good branch in any good University? Very bright. We believe that every FIITJEE student enrolled in a USA UnivQuest Program will be able to get admission in a US University. Q 5. Ans.: What is FIITJEEs Expertise in TOFEL, SAT-I, SAT-II and Advanced Placement Courses? Over the last 4 years FIITJEE has helped numerous students get admission in the Top Notch US Universities. Most of these students were FIITJEEs Two Year Classroom Program and PINNACLE students, who were either not keen to study in India or did not have a good chance of getting an IIT & Branch of their choice. Infact practically in every SAT & AP course FIITJEE students have secured highest possible marks. Q 6. Ans.: What are the criteria for admission into USA UnivQuest Program? a. b.
