Should I Apply for the Spring Semester (January)?

Many students are interested in joining American universities in January, that is, in the spring semester. But, there is a common misunderstanding that many universities do not accept students in the spring semester and that funding opportunities are also fewer. This, however, is not true. Almost 95% of American universities admit students for the spring semester.

Opportunities for financial assistance in spring are also as good as in fall. Of course, in some universities, a few courses are offered only in the fall semester, so students who join in spring cannot take them. However, with regard to financial aid, most universities offer Research and Teaching Assistantships, tuition waivers etc. only to students who have completed one semester, with a very good GPA (Grade Point Average). Hence, whether you join in the fall or spring semester does not really make a difference.

    You will definitely get PhD admission in a good university provided your academic record in India is good, GRE score is more than 315 and subject GRE (physics) score more than 80 percentile. You can join our admissions counseling for your admission process.

    No. Subject GRE score will be received by first week of December 2012, which is very late for Spring 2013. You can apply only on the basis of GRE score which you will receive by end of June 2012.
