We strongly advise international students to attend at least one U.S. or international education fair. Why? Because of the following:
- Talk to college or university official representatives for first-hand info without any commission-based agents in between.
- Some fair-participated schools may waive your application fees if you apply during the fair.
- There are some special scholarships or grants only available to fair attendees.
- You can attend seminars or presentations prepared by U.S. education experts or school representatives.
Please be aware that some education fair organizers may allow commission-based agents to participate in their fairs. You just have to pay more attention to whom you talk with. Are they just interpreters or are they commission-based agents? Use your common sense and tell them apart.
Good Luck with Your Search!
