I’m an international student, who’s recently been accepted to Virginia Tech and Texas A&M Engineering. I’d like to major in Mechanical Engineering, and I really don’t know where to choose. Simply looking at rankings, both these schools are ranked #13 engineering schools according to the U.S. news, so I don’t think the rankings are very helpful.
Here’s my question: Where should I choose.
Cost: Since I’m an international, there’s no huge difference. But I’ve heard that Texas A&M allows international students to pay in-state tuition if they earn initial $4,000 or sth (not 100%sure tho).
Living: I like vibrant urban areas, but I guess both schools are in the middle of nowhere. I don’t like natures and quiet and peaceful places.
Employment: I want a college that has a larger network and being employed better.
Thank you all. I’d appreciate any opinion really. Please help me out!
