Top 5 Myths about Studying in the USA

For many people in the former Soviet Union, entering a university abroad still seems unrealistic. However, much of what they say is nothing more than myths.
In this article I will focus on the most common myths about studying in the United States and try to debunk them based on expert experience.

Popular Myths about Studying in the USA
The complexity of independent preparation for admission
Nowadays there is no need to speak about the complexity, because everywhere - offline and online - there are a lot of resources such as to help prepare for admission. They offer clear, detailed plans, give you the basics you need to get in the door and help you answer some of the most common questions. Among them:

how to choose an institution;
Where and how to look for financial assistance (grants and scholarships);
What documents you need for admission, etc.

In some cases, services or individual consultations of specialists will be helpful.
Abroad, including in America, it is fashionable to take a gap year - a year free after finishing school to gain strength, to understand the desires and future profession.
Big differences in education systems

Yes, perhaps the educational systems are not very similar, but this does not mean that you should give up studying in the United States. There is a special system for international students.

Every student is assigned a sponsor (advisor) who helps with adapting to the new education system, choosing courses, or helping with websites like and with advice on writing an academic plan. Mentors also help you with schedules, resume writing, and sometimes remind you of deadlines. If you don't know where to apply, imagine your life in a few days. Think about what you might be doing for years to come.
