Hi, for the past 6 months or so I have been contemplating studying in the US but also keeping my options open about studying in the UK.
I want to be a video games programmer and I feel there is a bigger opportunity in the US with many students going on to big name companies such as EA, Activision and Microsoft Studios.
I have already looked at list of different colleges and sent emails to 4 at the moment; Cornell (prestigious and probably won't be accepted but I want to at least try), Penn State, University of Utah and Worcester Polytechnic Institiute. I've been told by someone I know that Penn State is probably the best besides Cornell.
I've already started filling out CAs (common applications) but Utah doesn't have that and doesn't have a UCA so I think I have to apply directly.
There's some questions I have about the CA and other stuff too like a visa but I will also ask the colleges too. I was wondering if anyone knows about international undergraduates or can help me at all.
NB: I have looked at prices of what it would cost to stay on campus / off campus and for text books etc. And I am already saving money from a part time job and my family is quite well off and is willing to help me.
