There are three main semester intakes per year in the United States. These vary from one another universities. Fall (August/September) is the most trendy with 70% of the student traffic. Thereafter, its followed by spring (January/ February/ March) and the last is summer (May – June). Indian students rarely choose summer. There is no difference in the quality of education, type and level of job opportunities between a student starting his/her course in September intake and a student starting in the January intake.
