How This Book Helped Avinash
I have applied to 6 schools (MIS) in total – Univ of Arkansas Fayette ville, Georgia St. Univ, Oklahoma Univ, Utah St. Univ, Univ of Texas at Dallas, Univ of Nebraska at Omaha.
Out of these 6 schools, I got admits from UTD and Univ of Nebraska at Omaha. I was in dilemma in selecting these two universities. Both universities have got pros and cons in terms of cost, ranking, and other factors.
- UTD – $33,000; no scholarship; top school for Electrical, reputation, weather
- UNO – $23,000; $4410 with instate tuition fee; #6 according to US News in Information Technology and Management, excellent course work for MIS, lot of other factors, heard of its coolest temperatures and lastly my favorite ‘Information Security’ concentration
I have selected Univ of Nebraska at Omaha after reading University Picker eBook (I purchased it before my UNO admit). This book and other UNO tough seniors’ words helped me in choosing the second admit.
I liked the university picker book very much. It really works to decide between multiple admits. – March/2012
University Picker book was as awesome as your blog, Hats off to you. It gives detail insight about factors affecting university selection.
In order to make it more powerful i would like to state few suggestions. Can you please provide specific details about how to find scholarship, or campus job with example, lets say with XYZ univ. So that people will follow this pattern and will get help out of it. Apart from this it is a awesome book. – March/2012

I have applied for Fall 2012 in Wayne State University and waiting for my admission result (my friend’s family lives in Detroit).
I have GPA 3 out of 4 with GRE 300(140-v and 160-Q) and TOEFL 83.
As I belong to normal middle level family and have to take student loan to pursue my studies for MS (around 20 Lakhs)
I’m so confused regarding studying into the desired university as I used to thought like I would be given 45k $ to 50k $ package and with this package i would be completing my loan amount but now i don’t even know that whether i will be given job or not as i am an International Student (i don’t want to bother my family a lot).
Except Wayne State University I don’t have any other option for MS in FALL 2012. Please help me. Please I’m very depressed about this.
