We advise you to apply U.S. News & World Report’s top national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional universities & colleges, or Forbes Magazine’s 650 America’s Top Colleges.     Compared with Australia’s 43 universities, Canada’s 98 universities, or United Kingdom’s 130 higher education institutions, the U.S. offers a wider selection and superior quality colleges and universities for college-bound international students.

It could be confusing and difficult for international students to search for U.S. colleges and universities from a huge supply of schools.     This problem creates a lucrative market for numerous unethical study-abroad service agents and blacklisted universities to work together.     Those unethical agents do not care if they mislead their students to unaccredited colleges or bad schools without quality education.    Why they don’t care?   You may ask.   That is because they are likely to get paid by the schools or they think directing students to easy schools have them a lot of work.

How could you detect a “Blacklisted University” (or a low quality school) which treat international students as its cash machines?    There are some signs that you should watch out for in a school:

  1. if it has unreasonably low or simple admission requirements,
  2. if it is under investigation for unlawful operation or wrong doings,
  3. if it is not accredited by one of the seven regional accreditation agencies for higher education in the U.S.,
  4. if it has high drop-out rate or low graduation rate,
  5. if it has low student number (like less than 200) and low faculty number, and
  6. if it has financial troubles.

With the internet access today, one could find the answers to the questions above without difficulties.  Avoiding “Blacklisted Universities” or bad quality colleges is one key for  your higher ROI (Return on Investment).
