I took commerce in my +2 level with Math. Can I get an admit to mid-tier Universities in CS or engineering? If yes, will there be any issues in getting visas?

Yes. there will be some universities that will consider you provided you have at least have Physics and/or computers in Grade 10. However, I am puzzled by this sudden change of heart. Are you sure you are really interested in engineering/computer science? Make sure that you are not jumping into a course that is not really aligned with your talents and interests,

You should be able to switch your field of study at university in the US.  However, admission to a program will depend on the university.  If the university admits you to the school and not necessarily directly into a major, you will have a lot of choice.  If the university admits directly into a major, then it could be harder for you to be admitted into a more science-based program since you haven't had the right classes in your +2.  As long as you've been admitted to a university and receive the I-20, there shouldn't be a problem with the visa (unless the Embassy/Consulate determines there is based on something else).

I've seen many students in your situation not knowing what they really want to study.  I recommend you apply to schools where you're not locked in to your major from the beginning so you have time to explore your choices for your major. Most high school students who are about 18 years old have no idea what they really want to study so you're just like the large majority of students.

  • We have three terms in school. And my grades look something like this: 9th (84%, 85%, 87%) , 10th (86%, 87%, 95% [Boards]) , *school change*, 11th (84%, 70%, 72%). I am in 12th grade now, as can be seen my 11th grades are terrible - has that ruined my chances at "top" schools forever? Some context: I gave up preparing for the JEE to focus on this. I am looking for full (or nearly full) financial aid (anything else would be totally unaffordable). I met an online counselor who suggested colleges like Drexel, etc. Sure, they are good, but my parents are extremely hopeful (considering I gave up on the JEE) , aka, think HYPSM (or top 20, at the very least). I honestly thought I had a tiny, tiny, tiny chance - but now I am not so sure and am freaked out and disappointed. Should I just give up and prepare for the JEE?
