But then, a lot of Indians would also have a problem doing an MA in the US for they don't have surnames either. It is only a part of India where surnames (hereditary, usually paternally inherited, over multiple generations, parts of the name) are used. Since caste is also hereditary, surnames are often (but not always) clear indcators of caste, and some people from regions where surnames are in vogue, have renounced their use.
I did not know US had a requirement to have a last name.
