Hello BITSians worldwide,
We are embarking on an ambitious effort to increase the admissions of BITSians to international universities through a combination of better marketing to the universities themselves, as well as improved intelligence for our students so they can send significantly better applications.
If you have some experience applying to US or non-US univs for higher studies, please take some time to fill up the following form (at present only for MS/PhD programs; we'll be creating a separate one for MBAs soon)
Link to Form
The information collected will be kept in a highly organized manner on www.bitsaa.org shortly, and will be presented in a way that will be helpful to all students and alums interested in applying for higher studies abroad (something on the lines of http://bits.20m.com which is out of support currently).
Note that BITSian admissions to some of the world's top universities (Stanford, Caltech, MIT) has been steadily increasing, but we are working to make this even better.
This effort is being led by two BITSIANS - Archana (an alum) and Srinath (a student currently in Switzerland). You will be hearing more from them in the coming months.
Kindly popularize this initiative among other BITSians you might have acquaintance with. This database will be made available to you very soon.
Thanks for your time and patience.
for Srinath & Archana
A word of advice... the form takes a while to fill out. If you have a lot to say, don't begin until you have about half an hour to spare.
