Hi all !
I've got a BS-CS degree. Primary skills include Java and Oracle. I've developed some web-based applications using servlets,jsps.I'm working for scj2p.
Now if im studying for masters is it possible for me to get a job.
If i do manage to get a job what will be the pay, as i may have to work part time due to studies.
I understand it will be an entry level job as i'm really raw.
Do US universities allow working with studies.
Regards
Danish Shaukat

Huh? It's none of their business what you do as long as you pass your classes.

Actually international students(on F-1 visa) are not allowed to work off-campus. You are limited to a maximum of 20 hrs/week on-campus job (if you can find any).

then what do you think , is it easy to pay 3000 dollars or more if you don;t have a good scholorship .
what do you do then , you have to work along with your degree so that you pay off your fees .
There are loop holes my dear , so don't just do what F1 tells you to .... got the point !

I don't quite get what you are trying to say here. If you are implying that someone can illegally work off-campus, you are breaking the law -- do it at your own risk, with the worst-case scenario being that you might get deported.
I don't think it is that difficult to get financial aid for graduate studies in the US. It entirely depends on the school you apply to, your academic records, GRE scores, and the repuation of the school where you obtained your undergraduate degree. I completed my MS without paying a dime, and I know tons of people who did that too.
Well assuming you don't get financial aid, you have several options:
1) You can come on a work visa (H-1), and simultaneously work towards your degree part-time. Most employers will willingly fund your education.
2) Take a loan or something, which you can pay off later once you get a job.
3) Take a risk, and come without financial aid, and try to find aid once you get here (you might have to pay the first semester's tuition).
4) If you can't do any of these, then don't come --- not trying to be sarcastic here, only realistic.

You might have been lucky to get good scholorships but what if we one don't get good scholorships ( says 30%) , what do these people do for there general living , house rent and other expences.I agree that loans can be re-paid when you start working , but what do you do till the time you are studying ..... I,am sure working 20 hours per week won't solve the prob . what do you say.Let me tell you that it is not easy for graduates ( with no exp ) to get h1b , to wokk in USA.So in that case what do these people do ?
