Thanx Gempile for your advice i appreciate that... but i need outside exposure....
doing GIA from delhi will be of no use as delhi is not a hub...

If you are bent on attending Carlsbad then you could consider taking your coursework in India and then doing all 3 labs consecutively in Carlsbad over a 3 week period. Obviously the best education you can get would be to go for their 6 month on campus program. If you are willing to travel great distances then I would consider AIGS instead. You would be at the heart of the colored stone gem trade.

AIGS is much less recognised and qulaity of education is less.

AIGS is less recognized in America for sure. From what I've read I'm inclined to disagree with you on their level of education, particularly in the colored stone area. Some very renowned gemologists are graduates of AIGS. I'm not trying to discourage GIA as I'm a current GIA student myself.
