 people from across the world is an integral part of a college experience. Look for diversity. Check the school’s website and talk to current students and alumni to determine the spread of nationalities present at school. Placement reports published by schools also give insights into students working lives before and after the program globally.
* Ranking and Reputation: Numerous top publications publish rankings of schools for a myriad of programs across various criteria. Let rankings be a small part in deciding your school. They are dynamic and change constantly. Instead, speak to potential employers, current students and alumni to get an in-depth perspective on the school.
* Cost/Duration of the Program: Even though several schools offer grants and scholarships, if this is a core criterion, schools that offer more financial aid should be considered.
* Realistic Target: Dream big, but keep your targets realistic. Try to strike a balance between reality and ambition while applying to college.

Please also note that most universities require published writing samples and very strong Statements of Purpose. This is mainly for those who're applying for Masters programs and above.

Therefore, please try to get your work published in peer-reviewed journals if you want to apply for research-based courses. An internship is equally important. Be careful about where you apply. Your internship must be really relevant to your course choice. And you should be able to say how that internship improved you. It's not enough to simply mention an internship on your resume.

All the best!
