Yes it is pretty difficult to get an aid for MS thes days...but once u get into a univ u can always make it up with p/t jobs on campus..if u maintain a good gpa u may even get a tuition fee waiver..mail the profs of the univs ..tell them ur intersted in their research work..if they find u good enuf,u may get an assistanship even b4 u land in the US of A :whistle: ..
