American colleges and universities enrolled a record-breaking number of international students last year: almost 900,000 foreign students studied in the U.S. in the 2013-2014 academic year.

Students from China, India and South Korea made up about half of all the international students in the U.S. And for the first time in 13 years, USC was not the top destination for foreign students.

The findings are the result of the new Open Doors report from the New York-based nonprofit Institute of International Education. Allan Goodman, president and CEO of the Institute of International Education, joins Take Two for more on the Open Doors report.
