Many international students considering applying to colleges in the United States are familiar with the U.S. News and World Report rankings. While not an “official” list of top schools (such a thing actually does not exist in the U.S.), it is widely used by students and parents to help make sense of the very diverse higher education landscape.
From that list, all of the top 25 national universities in the U.S. trust IELTS. More importantly, well over 3,000 U.S. higher education institutions accept successful IELTS results as proof of English proficiency. It doesn’t take #1001ways to be accepted!
