    By the way, I wanted to add:

    My friends in the US are actually going to visit the colleges of their choice, to see them. Do you guys think it's a big deal?

    And yeah, you could use www.collegeweeklive.com I use the same. Much more economical than visiting the univs. (But you'll never get that feel of visiting the campus) Also, the timings for universities coming online are a little problematic (11:30 pm - 7:30 am IST)

    Pretty good Indiestudent, but you gotta work on bringing up the SAT scores >2000. Just work on Writing, the other 2 are really competitive.

    @SahilC That's exactly what I meant! Being a citizen entitles you for the FASFA, while I have to rely on Fin Aid.

    Well, I'm giving my first SAT1 on May 4, but I've also registered for the June one just in case. (after that I will not have time due to ISC exams, which are equally important, and other engineering courses) I'll also be taking SAT2 (MathII and Physics Subject tests) probably in october. Not sure if that's a good time though.

    You?

    I'm about to register for the June Edition of the SAT I, and in May, I'll be ready for AP Comp Sci A(Self Taught), and will give the SAT II(Math Level II, and Physics).
    All in 2014. I'm still confused about the application procedure, and will visit American Center for this purpose.
