Question Description
I am from India. I want to study in USA, so please tell me about the best but cheap universities and colleges in USA in details.
Answer

Below are the best universities in USA for international students with cheap tuition fees and more financial aids. The quality of these universities can be measured in terms of their admission rate, student-faculty ratio, and freshmen retention rate. Low admission rate means low probability of acceptance and high number of applicants willing to study in that university. Minimum difference between number of students and faculty means higher level of individual care to students. Higher freshmen retention rate means students are satisfied with the every aspects of that university and willing to continue their education in that university. Higher the percentage of student met by financial aid, higher will be the chances for obtaining a financial aid by the international students. International student tuition fees and average financial aid shows how cheap these universities are for international students.
