Hey I got my Notes Finally!
I had written it in points
Didn't write Much though...Wanted more info on after admit things so more on that only Sad

Will write the points and try to elaborate as much i remember...

====>While Searching for Universities try to go for Metro Cities
Look for campus safety and job opportunities along with other things for the Universities!

====>After your admit you get I-20

=====> We Need to fill up DS 156, DS 157, DS 158 Forms!
DS 157 = Past Employment and Educaton
DS 158 = F1 Visa!

===>How to fill F1 Visa visit = immihelp.com! [Wordy I had written emmihelp.com!LaughingLaughingLaughingLaughing]

=====> Financial Information:
- Bank Statement [hard cash ] In your Savings account = Your I - 20 Amount for 1st year!

- For your second year = Show Stocks + MFs + Jewellery + property papers + Bank Loan letter

Get the jewellery and property evaluated approximate values!

there is No need of a CA statement ONLY a Excel Sheet will do!

====> Carry all your Transcripts to visa Interview viz. = 10th + 12th + Degree College mark sheets and degrees

=====> Travel to US
- After getting Visa First thing you should do is Block your Ticket

- Prepare your Travel itinerary

- Don't forget your passport and I -20 LaughingLaughingLaughing

- Carry traveller's Cheques [they are more safe]

- Carry 1st semester Fees and some months expense in the form of TC

- Carry DD in the name of the college if you are going to pay by Loan!

- If you are carrying more than $5000 [five thousand] It will get endorsed on your passport See to it that its done!

- Don't spend Much on clothings its cheap there
$15-20 very good branded shirts available!

- take more Food!

- Accommodation - Be very very Choosy with Room mates I very well remember he emphasised this point very much.

Contact the Indian Students Association in the university, They will help you find the house and mates and stuffs!

You didn't tell me what to do if there is NO Indian association in University Sad

====>Immigration

- You will be given a form in the plane to fill before you land at the Port of Entry

port of Entry
Its the place where you enter the USA! eg IF your destination is Utah California will be your port of entry Mostly LA!

- At the Port of entry you will be asked general question like where are you going , Why etc

Not a big deal don't worry!

- From there you take your connecting flight!

- keep at least 3-4 Hours gap between two flights!

- Port of entry Formalities take about 1-2 hours

=====> Student's Life in US

- First thing you should do is get your Social Security Number and health Insurance Its a must!

- Culture shock will be there

- To reduce that Go To McDolands + Subways etc

- Start mannerism from here only! Don't throw garbage + Don't spit etc!

=====> Expenses

- $50 per month for Mobile!

- $40 for internet

- $300 for Room with 4 Room mates in 2BHK

- $250 for groceries and other stuffs

- $20-30 for travelling

- Total $600 max for Indian Student for One Month


OK That is it this is what I had written

HOPE It was helpful!

regards,
Sambhav.

These expenses vary depending on where you are. It may not cost you $600, or it may cost you more than that.In many univs travel expenses within the same town would be free/subsidized(univs usually have tieups with the local transport agency)
Quote:Start mannerism from here only! Don't throw garbage + Don't spit etc!

Misinterpretation? Surely throw garbage, in trash cans, not anywhere you feel like.
Spit, in restrooms/wash basins.
Quote:- First thing you should do is get your Social Security Number and health Insurance Its a must!
Most univs will charge you for insurance automatically, unless you get it waived by taking some insurance from India.
To get an SSN you need to have a campus job/assistanship/some source of income

Quote: After getting Visa First thing you should do is Block your Ticket
Major misconception about blocking tkts, even among frequent travellers: Your ticket is safe and no one can take it. NO! Your tkt is not safe unless you pay and purchase the ticket. The airline company is free to sell a blocked tkt unless you actually paid and purchased it.
Quote:While Searching for Universities try to go for Metro Cities
I would say go to the best university(you got admitted into), not the best city.

One more thing: Drafts are a better way of taking money to the US, than TCs, at least nowadays, since the commission charged on TCs is comparatively very high. Take a draft in your name and deposit it once you reach.

Please do not email me for Cornell related queries, ask them on the Cornell thread. If you do mail me, I may not reply. I am currently very busy, if I do not reply to PMs, please wait for a few days.

Very Happy

... And we're back!

I'm from IU. I love IU. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Purdue might impress me - but I didn't, so it doesn't.
