Found something of interest:

“We had three students who were ready to enter the class struggle with visas this year,” says Mabley at McCombs. “One ultimately came through but two didn’t and had to delay their plans to attend the program. This is the first time we ever had students denied visas to come to school.”
Mccombs is a top 30 MBA program. Not good!

“Trump is scaring off internationals from considering an MBA in the U.S.,” says Jeremy Shinewald, founder and CEO of mbaMission
And for good reason, I'd say.

No doubt the mba applications have plunged!

Yeah-Thanks for sharing-No longer makes sense applying to US programs I think given it is a matter of 250K USD and not some small change.

What do you guys think about Trump? I think that he's doing is right and logical for US citizens. Would love to know what other people think!

I follow US politics a lot closer than Indian politics, and I think Trump cares about his own agenda, which reflects in his policies. This helps out some Americans, doesn't help others.
What's more important to understand is that he does what he thinks his voters want him to do, that is stricter immigration policies. Forget immigration, there have been cases where naturalized citizens are being "denaturalized" because of silly traffic violations.

Anyways, I don't think we are allowed to talk politics in this thread so won't continue my rant any longer. What's important is that the USA, as a country, has officially decided to make life difficult for immigrants, while it's neighbor is "officially" announcing it's open culture and welcoming immigrants. If an "Oxford + Stanford" combo can be denied visa 6 months after it was approved - it's too big a risk for a middle-class average student/immigrant to rely on the whims of the immigration officers. I know where I want to build my life!

__________EDIT_____________
To add to this, I've heard rumours that quite a few top notch organizations are moving their future businesses to Canada due to the immigration friendly culture.
The source of the rumor is my own connections in various organizations like Intel and Cisco, nothing official but where there's smoke there's fire.

Also, even if you get an H1b - good luck changing projects or visiting clients -

"the Trump administration had already made working on third-party sites more complicated. A Feb. 22 memo from the USCIS announced that H-1B beneficiaries—both existing and new ones—working at third-party sites had to provide “specific and non-speculative qualifying assignments… for the entire time requested on the petition.” This makes it almost impossible for workers to remain on the bench, or move between short-term projects at short notice."
