Recommended Business Schools for Intl/ transfer Students?

I'm an international and transfer student who is major is accounting. I go to community college in Chicago and my GPA is 3.9. I'm so confused which school I should transfer to. These are the two that I got accepted so far, but I have been waiting for the others that I have applied too. </p>

<li>I did apply for UIC just for safe alternative and got accepted.
2.I got accepted in Indiana University major in accounting too. </li>
<li>Depaul univeristy and got accepted.</li>
<li>George Washington, and don't know the result yet.</li>
<li>Boston university, don't know yet.</li>
<li>SUNY binghamton, don't know yet.</li>

<p>My problem is that financially, if I stay in Chicago and go to either UIC or Depaul, I can save lots of money for rent since I live with my boy friend here and I pay very small compared to the money that I have to pay for living in dorms. For tuition, since I'm an international, It doesn't matter where I go that I have to pay out-of-state tuition. I know that for school reputation and ranking, It would be better for me to go IU, BU, or George Washington since they are the ones that have higher rankings and reputation...but I've heard from some of my friends that It might be better to go to school that is less competitive and get a great GPA with good internship experiences than school name. It would be really nice If UIC has a better accounting program for undergraduate, but If seems like it is not known for business program and its ranking is not that parents think If there is no huge difference, they are willing to pay more though. But, BU is very expensive even among the other schools, which costs approximately $60,000 a year. I wonder If it is even worth it to go BU If I get accepted. Based on my living life in Chicago(with my bf who I have been with almost four years, and I honestly want to be with him If I can), and the financial reason that I can save up money for living versus school ranking and reputation, which school do you think is the best one for me????? Please help!</p>

<p>UIC has a good accounting program. It doesn’t have a bad reputation. They do have a program for high achieving students which will allow for automatic acceptance into the Masters program; If you maintain an overall GPA of 3.25 and an accounting GPA of 3.0. <a href=“”></a></p>

<p>Your school’s reputation is important for your first job. Afterwards, it comes down to experience and recommendations. </p>

<p>Since you are international, most traditional financial aid sources will be closed to you.</p>

<p>If you are planning to stay in the US and wish to become a CPA, you will have problems as an international student. No Big 4(or the smaller regional firms) will hire internationals and get them HB1 status. If you are returning home after the UG and become a CPA there, most likely they may not care where you graduated.</p>
