US offers large variety of Quality options for every profile of the students. It is one of the country having more than 3500 Universities out of which around 500 Universities across disciplines regarded as excellent. The students who start research atleast 1 year in advance are able to choose right University. However, majority starts late and thereby rely upon the their friends and others for the advice and evaluate only 30-40 Universities.
Counsellors play major role in advising the students start from Selection of Universities, application process, Financial Aid, VISA etc. However, today most of the Counsellors have become so commercial that student interest has taken a back seat.
PLEASE DO NOT choose the Counsellor who has tie-up with the Universities. Tie-up means a Commercial relationship between the Counsellor and University and they are paid huge Referral Commission in exchange of sending students. Once the Counsellor is paid REFERRAL COMMISSION, students will never gets the financial aid as University expects students to pay FULL FEES.

The good counsellors must have following:
Finally, students should do their own research, plan their activities well in advance and approach in systematic way. Identifying Counsellors with dedication and Student-centric approach is key. Counsellors should also follow the Ethical practices as Education is noble field and commercials should always comes second to student interest.
