Published Aug 12,2013 By GCforPhD

Question:

I need your guidance in applying to phd in USA.i have completed masters in USA and planning to do phd in next year.can I know how the degree would be useful for national interest.i am applying to average accredited university since I am an average student.can I know whether degree would be useful under self petition.is there any website to look this?

Appreciate your reply!!
Thanks
Response:
The PhD degree as such cannot be claimed to be of national interest but the work done during the degree and the expertise gained could be argued to be. So it depends on what is the area of research and how it will be useful to the nation. You can see the commonly asked questions and  some example petitions to understand this.
Also you can see the uscis requirements to see what is expected in a typical petition. Also the following free ebook has more details on common questions.
Best of luck
