I have some questions and I want to hear some comments
from you. I applied for a scholarship to go to study
to Japan and I also applied for admission into a North
American University. Last month I received the news
that I had gotten a full scholarship to study a master
program in Japan. Hopefully, I will begin this master
program this August 2005. Three weeks ago I also
news that I was accepted into this American University
with a partial scholarship. If I decide to go to this
university, I will have to pay almost 40.000 dollars
in one and a half years. Honestly I do not have the
money to pay this.
I have been thinking about these two possibilities and
I have reached this conclusion: I do not know what to
do. The North American University is one of the top 10
but I will have to pay a lot of money unless I find
another financial support. The Japanese university is
considered good and I have all expenses paid by the
scholarship. Based on this information I have some
questions and I really appreciate your help:
1- My future plans are to go to the United States and
work and live there. Will my future Japanese Master
Degree be valid in the United States?
(according to your opinion!)
2- In your opinion, where do you think I should study:
in Japan or in Carnegie Mellon?
Other things for you to know are:
* I am an international student, therefore I cannot
apply or a loan, yet, but my fiancée is a US citizen
and we are planning to get married next month.
* My major field of study is Information Technology.
3- Would I get my papers in one year (because I
postpone my admission entrance into Carnegie Mellon
University) so that I can apply to scholarships and
Waiting for your comments,
The Japanese university should be able to answer your question about whether the master's degree will be recognized in the US.
