Standard

What is a US public university? It is a university that is funded or supported by the state government through tax-payers. Public universities are often governed by state appointed agencies and Boards. Often (not always) they tend to be less expensive than private universities.

Not all US universities are equal..

Standard

International students who want to study in the US – note, not all US universities are the same. Simply because you have "heard" about a university doesn't mean it is good. Simply because your neighbor or friend attended that university doesnt make it good. At the very least, you should check to see if the university you are considering is accredited. See link:  http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/

Why does accreditation matter? Think about it like a car or a house. You want someone to inspect the car or house and tell you that it meets basic standards of quality. That's exactly what accreditation means for universities! There are other considerations as well – but start with asking if your university is accredited.

sir/madam, i am student of pharmacy studying in final(4th) year. I want to known how i will get admission in M.S.in pharma.at U.S. University.i still dosent face any test like GRE, TOFEL, ILTS, GMAT.please suggest me which exam. should i take in order to get admission in good university with offering good stipend and how much score requires.

Dear Pravin,

The Doctorate of Pharmancy (there is no Master's in Pharmacy) is a highly competitive field. This is because of the abundance of jobs in pharmacy! However, at the current time, there is more demand than supply of Pharmacy universities in the US. This is changing as more pharmacy universities in US will open over the next few years. Your best bet is to do well on GRE and TOEFL. Getting financial aid is difficult. Work hard on improving your written and oral communication skills. University of California, San Francisco has a great pharmacy program. http://pharmacy.ucsf.edu/pharmd/ Best wishes to you!
