    Especially for those already at BU or going to join in fall, when i recieved my acceptance , they sent me an estimate of 77000 USD for one academic session , the tuition for fall semester was mentioned to b $32000 and for spring was $23000 , $ 10000 for instruments ( round figures) and collective expenses to b, like i mentioned $77000, In my I - 20 which i recieved three days back the tuition is $40000 and other expenses to b $16000 ( approx) nothing is mentioned regarding instruments etc. i am confused
    1) DO we have to buy instruments for advanced standing program
    2) what is the regime for fee payment ( i mean do v have to pay for the whole term or 9 months or semester)
    Anyone who has more idea about this , kindly help
    thanks

    Dear GKG..

    As far as I know, you do not have to purchase any instruments prior to commencement of class.. I would go by the amount mentioned in the earlier estimate, not whats on the I20. And I THINK you pay every 6 months.. this is what I was told at the time of my interview, I didn't follow up on it cos I withdrew. You might want to call them up and find out.. always the best way.

    Hi Ann i still have to file for a visa , but i guess whatever amount they've mentioned on the i 20 needs to b proved in Liquid assets , the amount should cover the expenses for first year of education and one needs to show the means to provide for remaining years.

    hi rajkang,

    you are not perfactly right here.....as you can change your status any time if you are on h-4 visa...but for those who are on f-2 visa , have to change their status before going to school.
    take care.

    Hello everybody....I guess changing from H4 to F1 is possible...but when you do that you need to maintain a full-time student status...also in some states like Texas(not sure)....H4 students need to pay only the instate tution....which might be cheaper... also the fees you pay is partly tax deductible if on H4 and your spouse or whoever you are dependent on is paying your fees...

    hey does F1 students get loans here to pursue dental studies...without a green card holder as a co-signer...I believe some schools do help you with loans...for international students.....any idea...anybody?????

I wrote what the VO told me when i was granted the US visa , may b he did not mean the same for all categories of visas.In any case i apologize for posting the wrong information ( wasjust trying to help!!!!!) :oops: :oops:
