Will US Shutdown affect USA Universities Admission 2014
With the deadline for several UG and PG programmes at various top USA universities fast approaching, the US Shutdown can have adverse effects on USA Universities Admission 2014. While the deadline for Early Action of USA Universities UG (undergraduate) Admission 2014 is 1st November 2013, the Round 2 application deadline for MBA Admission 2014 of Top USA Universities is in 1st week of January 2014.
The US shutdown has raised the concern of Indian students planning for a study in USA commencing in 2014. According to overseas educational consultants, the students who have already left for USA or have their visas in hand for commencing their study in USA in Fall 2013 won’t face any problem. But, if the US Shutdown persists beyond 15 days, its impact on rupee and other currencies across the world, and new visa issuance will definitely affect the decisions of prospective USA universities international students for the Year 2014.
Affected by the depreciating rupee, students had expected to solve much of their financial hurdles by working part-time through the work while study opportunities. A continuing US Shutdown will also result in less number of jobs. This is also a major concern for Indian students planning to pursue their study in USA starting in 2014.
The US Shutdown has raised alarm bells for the already concerned international students due to the slow economy and a weak rupee. As predicted by education experts, unless the US Government takes a step towards a quick resolving of the shutdown, USA Universities Admission 2014 application numbers can be hit majorly.
