Though a majority of top universities in the US prefer students without backlogs, there are numerous
universities in the US accepting backlogs. So, you can be assured that upto 5 backlogs are accepted at
most US universities accepting backlogs. However, more than 5 backlogs are only accepted upon the
discretion of universities’ admission departments. Also, 15 is the maximum number of backlogs that has
been seen getting accepted by most US universities.
There are a number of factors that determine how many backlogs are allowed for MS in USA, like:
