Should I go to USA for college or should stay in Mexico?
>Mom gets remarried to an american
>She went to live with him and so did my little sister
>I didn't like the idea very much so I stayed with my dad to finish high school
>I love math and I plan to study Computer or Software Engineering
I feel more comfortable staying. But the USA is a more developed country and it might be better in the long run to move over there.
However, neither my mom or her husband are rich. So I will be attending two years of community college and then transfer to an university.
After all this it boils down to:
>Go to USA and get into community college for 2 years then transfer to an university for 2 years while on a student loan.
>Stay in Mexico and pay for college normally with using loans
I don't know what to do, I've talked about this multiple times with my parents to the point of nausea and I don't really care anymore about what happens
If you want a future you'll got the US. Someone coming from a third world country to study an engineering discipline is impressive, especially if you're going to be going to school somewhere that's not California or Arizona.
It's not bad, it's just that you'll lose the competitive edge coming from another country and being an ethnic minority would give you, since Arizona is has a huge Mexican population.
You can still get a good education, but it won't be handed to you like it would if you were going somewhere in the north or on the east coast.
Any chance you can go to a good 4 year right of the bat? Being an international student with that degree would give you an effective cutting edge, and I know a lot of schools have programs for international students, especially if you come from a "less developed" country
>Any chance you can go to a good 4 year right of the bat?
Probably not. Many people have advised me to not to do it because of student loans and stuff. And also, it will be even more expensive for a little while because in the first semester or so I wouldn't be an US resident yet, so it would cost a little more. But honestly, I haven't looked much into this by myself
>I know a lot of schools have programs for international students, especially if you come from a "less developed" country
I've got no idea about this.
finally a foreigner studying engineering that isn't chinese.
Welcome to the great United States. We welcome you with open arms. You will enjoy our education a lot, I'm sorry about those who might be very judgmental against you.
Go to school in America they hats white people in schools there it can be a Mexico part 2 don't feel lost run a cartel there don't let people talk about your cartel you have a right to not be offended or feel uncomfortable
Pendejo metete a la UNAM. I fucked up and came to USA, long story short, if you dont have a scholarship it's not worth it. You have options like UNAM that are completely FREE and really damn good.
También estoy viendo eso. El problema es que en el campus de mi ciudad (Sonora norte) solo tienen Ingeniería Mecatronica e Ingeniería Industrial como carrera completa. Si quiero ing. en sistemas computacionales tendría que irme a una casa de asistencia en Guadalajara o Monterrey, que es otro gasto más aparte de colegiatura, libros, etc. Igual con la UVM. La otra es que asista a una universidad publica de aquí.
Una pregunta, ¿Por que dices que estudiar en USA sin beca no vale la pena? ¿Por los gastos?
Digo eso a nivel licenciatura porque teniendo buenas universidades a un costo mucho mas bajo o gratis (unam), puedes sacarle un provecho muy grande a tu educacion, mientras que en USA claramente conseguiras buena educación pero no necesariamente mejor que lo que podrias conseguir gratis.
