Dear
friends
I need some suggestions from you. I am a B.Sc. graduate in chemistry and I have done two year post graduate diploma in management of information Technology and I am also a SCJP. When I passed out from my institute then I find that there is no value of diploma holders in the market, recruiters need either experience or engineering graduate. Therefore I want to pursue some higher degree course in I.T.(at U.S. or India) Is it possible for me to get admitted in some higher degree course in I.T. inspite of being a chemistry graduate and having no mathematics background. If it is then please give me some suggestions.
Sameer

I would think you would get further by trying to write some code, even volunteer code, just for experience than by getting any more formal school.
Get a resume together, follow some of Coxey's advice elsewhere on this site - search on his name- and keep trying!

If you want to get to U.S and do MS in IT, you can either
1. come by telling them you want to do IT, I don't know about the difficulty in getting a student Visa but I don't see why it's a problem.
2. or you can come by telling them you want to do MS in Chemistry and changing your major when you get here. As long as you choose a college where they have a good IT program.
I've heard of students changing their major once they get here.

Finances might prove to be an obstacle for many Indians. I believe that to get a student visa you would have to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to cover tuition and living expenses for the entire duration of the course. Check at the nearest USEFI (do they still have offices around the country? - I'm not sure) or some educational agency (not sure how trustworthy they are).

Once again getting into an MS in the US could be a problem - a TAship is unlikely. Unfortunately, the 3 year Indian Bsc is not considered quivalent to the 4 year undergraduate program in the US. Had you completed your MSc in India I would have suggested applying to a Ph.D program where you would have gotten a TAship. Changing a major is usally not too hard especially if you have good grades.
Anyhow, the application process is fairly involved so start making queries NOW if you are serious.
It is odd that you did not study mathematics? Or else an MCA would be a good option. At any rate, check out the eligibility criteria for MCA.
Good Luck.
