How to choose the best university to do your MS

1. Find the college that is right for you

Hunting for the right college involves researching for hours. With SelectRight, we have reduced it to a few minutes. All you need to do is answer a few questions that will help us understand what you are looking for.

Questions like what field of study you are interested in or whether you have any work experience, etc. These questions will help us send the right list of colleges for you.

How do we do it?

We collect data on 100+ parameters for each college in our database. Presently, our records contain 500 universities and are adding more regularly. After receiving your profile, we send you a personalized list of colleges or universities that will be right for your future.

SelectRight sends college recommendations to your inbox within a few minutes.

By implementing data analysis, we ensure that you get the best choices to select from.

2. Save you time and money

College rankings and quality, budget, and academic records are some of the many things that you will have to keep in mind while hunting for a college to do Masters. That often leads you to read blog articles, watch videos, scour through websites of different colleges and universities, and take part in forum discussions.

Here are some of the things that you might do while looking for the right college/university for studying in the US.

  1. Watch videos on YouTube: This will take many hours. You will have to watch multiple videos on one college. Furthermore, you won’t know if the videos are authentic or sponsored by the universities.
  2. Read blog posts: The majority of blog posts are copies of others written in a different way. You will only get generic advice which will be the same for all the colleges you will read about.
  3. Ask your friends: They will tell you to “Google it” which will have the same outcome as the above two points. If they are studying or studied in the US, then they might give you some insight but that will be limited to one college.

In conclusion, the chances that you will pick the wrong college are high. This will lead you to waste time during research, spend more money while studying, and have lower returns.

SelectRight’s recommendations are tailored for your needs.

Save you time and money

We have a simple five-step process for college hunting. Create your SELECT account and answer a few questions. We will take care of the rest for you.

3. Get unbiased advice

Our in-house experts will give unbiased advice to you.

Education consultancies are known for tricking aspiring students by giving them advice that is not ideal for their careers. The primary reason is, that it is their business model. They are sponsored by universities to increase the application forms they receive.

At SelectRight, we do things differently.

First, the recommendations that you will receive will be automated and will be based on data. We believe in empowering our students by helping them make the best career choice.

Second, when our in-house experts examine your profile, we hide all the information that could cause them to give you biased guidance.

4. Ask all your doubts

Studying in the US also means living there. A lot of aspiring Indian students who want to study abroad have little experience of living in a foreign country. You must have a lot of questions that you need to be answered before you land in the city of your university.

On our Discord server, you can ask all your questions related to studying abroad.

There you can directly interact with alumni and students who have been in your shoes. You will have direct access to all of them when you accept that invite. If they can’t answer your questions to your satisfaction, our experts will help you out.

5. We host events with colleges

After you select the college which is right for you, you will still have a few questions about the campus life, extracurricular opportunities, etc.

SelectRight hosts exclusive events with universities worldwide.

Events like those will give you a direct opportunity to interact with your future institution. You might have some questions that even our experts and network of alumni may not answer to your satisfaction.

Through these Q&A events, you will have a chance to interact with your future university. Attending these events will give you an edge that most students won’t have.
