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.
