dujingqiang Posted April 9, 2010 Share Posted April 9, 2010 I'm a student from China, and it's really tough decision for me, so I'd like to hear from you local guys. CMU gave me 5k per semester and NYU a merely 2 credits scholarship. My family is supporting me with 50k so I'll neglect the financial matter first. My career plan is to work in a international organization or NGO, and go on for PhD study in my early 30s and then go back to China to get into politics. My field of interest is poverty and welfare system. And from my knowledge, Ann Arbor is especially strong in academics and from the US news ranking, it ranks highest among my 3 choices, so it might help when I apply for PhD study. And NYU's location is a big attraction to me, and I guess its easiest to find interns or jobs. However I probably go for public finance if I'm going to Wagner because of its faculty specialization. Which left CMU in the middle, so I'm more inclined to choose between NYU and UMICH. These are some rough thoughts I have, I know there must be other factors to be taken into consideration, so I hope you can help with my decision and especially I hope you can tell me what should I consider when I make decisions. Please take into account that I'm an international student, all the federal and state posts are not available for me after graduation. 15th is approaching, please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
