Well facilitated college.
Tips: Coming to the US to pursue studies is a dream come true moment for most people. The college system in the US is slightly different than in India. You can get international student scholarships as well as assistantships if you look into the college job and scholarship portals. For some universities, you can also be eligible for an in-state tuition waiver which reduces your tuition fee to half.
