The Council of Graduate Schools reports that graduate school applications from international applicants increased just 1 percent this past year, after rising 9 percent last year and 11 percent in 2011.
Despite increases in applications from countries such as Brazil and a 20% increase in applicants from India, a 5% drop in applicants from China was mostly responsible for the stalled growth.
While some seem quite worried about how this may impact the US graduate school market, we’re not yet overly concerned. The number of applications from China had been rising at an almost unsustainable pace given the economic slowdown and we still see a lot of interest in American educations from the Chinese.
Best of luck with your applications!
