CMS creates a better future for all children by maximising
their opportunities through quality education and initiatives for unity and development.
Deepika Gupta, an ex-student of CMS Aliganj Campus I, and now studying at Cornell University, USA sends her greetings and good wishes to CMS students from Cornell. Here she answers questions put up by the CMS Alumni Association.
Q.1 How is studying abroad different from studying in India?
Deepika: I can't say, since I haven't been to a college in India. Cornell respects the top-ranked Indian colleges deeply. For High School education, the Indian system is unparalleled. America doesn't teach its kids as much as we do.
Q.2 Was it easy to make friends there?
Deepika: Really depends on how much workload you have. People are very welcoming at Cornell if you have the time to say 'Hello'.
Q.3 Any guidance to the current aspiring CMS students about how to manage the finances to study abroad?
Deepika: Apply for financial aid. And see if the college you are choosing does offer you aid. Discuss with your parents to see if they can afford the amount. Look up the college's annual expenditure, not the tuition.
Q.4 Are you comfortable away from home at a relatively young age? (Missing mom's food?)
Deepika: Food at Cornell is generally good. Cleaning your room every day and doing your own laundry does remind me of home.
Q.5 Will you come back to India after your undergrad, or you plan to continue there only?
Deepika: I am coming back. Work is happening in India!
