Hey, Guys, I am an international going to major in CS (Fall'18), So I have shortened my list to UMass, Penn State, and Michigan State. I am sure that the CS program for UMass and Penn State is top notch, but I was wondering if you all current students can give me an insight on which college should I choose amongst them/ why is UMass better than the other two. Actually Penn State is going to cost me around 10k/year more than the other two. Is it really worth it to pay that much more each year? What's the difference in college life and other stuff including internships and work opportunities? Penn State is ranked overall better than UMass, does that matter in any way? I am totally confused between UMass and Penn State.
Also, I wanted to know Are there Startup and Entrepreneurship events/clubs? Do people actively participate in them? Do people also travel to different Hackathons across the country? How is the alumni network?
It would really be great if you guys can help me out!
