Default Indian students in US cross 100,000 mark

Indian students in US cross 100,000 mark- Visa Power-Travel-Services-News By Industry-News-The Economic Times

The number of students from India enrolled in US universities and colleges crossed 100,000 for the first time ever this year even as Most expensive cities for expats

international enrollments in America registered the largest percentage increase since 1980, defying broad economic trends.

As the number of international students at colleges and universities in the US increased by 8% to an all-time high of 671,616 in the 2008/09 academic year, students from India made up 103,260 of the overall number, according to the Open Doors report, which is published annually by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in collaboration with the US government.

The Indian numbers went up 9.2 per cent from 94,563 in 2007/2008 to cross 100,000 for the first time to retain its position as the top place of origin for international students in the United States. China remained in second place, although there was a sharp 21 per cent spike in students from China, going up from 81,127 last academic year to 98,235 this year. South Korea (69,000 to 75,000) remained in third place.

This is the eighth consecutive year that India has remained in the top spot. In course of a preview of the forthcoming visit to Washington of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh next week, Indian officials said on Monday that Indian student inflow contributed nearly $ 3 billion to the US economy last year. Overall, international students contribute $17.8 billion to the US economy, through their expenditures on tuition and living expenses, according to the US Department of Commerce.

Authors of the report said the findings do not reflect the full impact of the past year's economic downturn, since decisions to come to the United States to study were made before the financial effects were fully felt in the sending countries.

Thumbs up so many future IV members!!!

Students from India & China combined: almost 200K.

Looking at the retrogression, many of those may be potential future IV members!!!

Default They never get it, do they?

Certainly a vast majority of them are in the US with the intent to immigrate in the long term. If they spend the same amount of money for comparable education in Canada, Europe or Australia, they will never face the lousy and frustrating US immigration situation! Apparently the "umrikan dream" is still going strong in India

Default i fell sorry for these students

As a student who came here myself and understand the huge investment they have to make to come here to study in US, I fell sorry for these students and there parents. With the draconian restrictions imposed by uscis and certain senators many of these kids will not have an oportunity to work in US. I am not sure how they will be able to repay the huge loans they are taking to pay the fees to US universities
