Re: Good US University

Hi,

I am planning to study in the US later, when I am old & grown-up :P

But which University is a good one ?

Of course the first one that crosses my mind, is Berkely (california). Because they developed one of the most fantastic Operating Systems ever build: BSD :)

That's the only University I know, too ... So, is there someone who can tell me some things about it ?
I am planning to study something in the IT. Like programming and stuff.

Regards,
Niek

Re: Good US University

Your best bet would probably be to go to a Dutch university (University of
Eindhoven isn't that bad as far as I know, and seems to be near you), and
then go for one or more years to a US one with a scholarship. That way, they
pay the exorbitant high fees for you, and you've grades to show which makes it
easier to let them accept you (or harder). Or have filthy rich parents, that's a
possibility too.

Re: Good US University

Don't say you might was not helpfull.. It was !

The region I probably wanna live in, is the west. Like Nevada, California etc. I'll look to the difference between the states to compare them and look which one I wanna live.

also I have to learn better english. I speak it really good, but when I've to write (or typ) it is sooo bad :(

Re: Good US University

Not really, more like Amsterdam (CS at UvA). But if you want to stay living there
it's a totally different matter. Choosing the area first like Rob said is a good idea.
I think it's probably also good to apply to multiple universities, in case you aren't
accepted by some of them.

Re: Good US University

I studied Computer Science at UC San Diego and thought it was quite good... they have one of the better CS programs, and it doesn't hurt that they are practically across the street from the beach either ;^)
