  • 3 yr bachelors degree not equivalent to US Bachelors

    Hello,

    I have a 3 yr Bachelors Degree from India. I am trying to apply for Business Schools in USA. I got my credit evaluation done from WES and their evaluation came out to be - Equivalent to 3 yr of US under graduation. That means I am short of some credits.

    Can anyone suggest me the best way to earn those extra credits. I do not want to spend time on earning those credits from a unrecongnized school and then again get stuck at the time of evaluation. If any of you had been through the same situation, can you suggest me how can I match up the 4 yr US Equivalent Bachelor's Degree?

    Thanks!

    I believe it is depend on what university you are going to! I have 3 years degree from back home. I had the evaluation from WES ( World Education Services in New York) which gave me total of 120 credits. Also WES did mention in details of the evaluation:Credential: Licence 3 years = US Equivalency: Bachelor's degree.I tried some universities, but told that they don't take any foreign credits. Luckily, I found one State University that gave me about 45 credits out my foreign credits! Keep trying! From my own experience and my spouse one: I learn one thing: Wherever your degree come from, you have re-take some or most of the classes here, either in undergraduate or graduate! Good luck. I hope that someone here gives you more information!

      Thanks for replying. Ironically, the top business schools in US, including IVY leagues, don't go by any third party evaluations (like WES). They just take ur transcripts and evaluate internally, they don't have any specific 15yrs / 16yrs requirement. But obviously, getting into those schools is equally difficult.

      As you correctly said, I will try to contact the schools admission department and get the exact requirements as to what is the best way according to them for me to earn those extra credits. My credits evaluated to 90. I would need to earn 30 more credits in order to get in.

      Hoping for the best !

              I have heard about this and let me see if i can help out properly. Sometimes it happens that we commplete the same amount of credits but they have 4 years while we have 3 years. So if the credits required are same then you have no problem. But if the credits are not equal then you will have to complete it.
              All the best
