Sunil Question by Sunil on Apr 08, 2024Hindi

Namaskar, My daughter is 21 Years old now and had done 12th (Medical) in 2021 and attempted for NEET in 2021 and 2022, but not got selected. Now she wants to study in USA only (no other country) and want to do some graduation in psychology there. We have tried to make her about our financials and suggested to do graduation from India and then go for post graduation from USA. But she is not ready. Now she is at home only and doing nothing, not learning anything since 2021-22. Always just talking to her friends who are also doing nothing but they are married but have their life set. We have applied for US visa once but got rejected in visa interview. Now she is just waiting for Jun-24 to reapply. Please guide. Thanks

Ans: Hello Sunil,

First and foremost, thank you for getting in touch with us. I am happy to hear that your daughter completed her 12th (Medical) in 2021 and now wishes to study overseas, especially in the USA. Nevertheless, taking into account both, monetary considerations as well as alternate strategies to reach her objectives, I would recommend that she addresses this choice with a practical perspective. Although studying in the United States may be desirable, there are often huge financial costs involved, particularly for overseas students.

From an academic and financial standpoint, it may be more practical to advise your daughter to complete her undergraduate studies in India before thinking about postgraduate opportunities in the USA. Besides, it’s also imperative to address her current state of inactivity ever since she has finished her 12th grade. While she waits for her visa reapplication, I would suggest that she actively participates in fruitful ventures that can aid her in acquiring important expertise and knowledge viz., internships, online programs, or volunteer work pertaining to psychology or any other desired field. Not just that, she should also seek advise from academic consultants or professional guidance counselors as they would be able to offer her information about other educational options and assist her in making educated choices pertaining to her future. Ultimately, make her understand that obstacles viz., visa denials are normal and can teach valuable lessons, highlighting the value of tenacity and fortitude in accomplishing her objectives.
