From a student in international school
by Arvind on Jul 15, 2005 08:59 AM

Hello all. My name is Arvind and i'm studying in the American Intl School of Guangzhou. I would probably agree with people that said the High school system in the states sucks but here in China its good. It all depends on how people deal with the system. You know different people are better with different things. For undergrad as far as i have seen, India is a much better choice cuz its not like we're all gonna get into Stanford MIT harvard and so on... and plus even people that graduate out of institutes that are non IIT such as Anna univ guindy, chennai and RECs get recruited for good jobs in the states. PG in the states would only be good with a scholarship i guess otherwsie why bother going there? Like people have been saying u should study in the states if u wanna settle there.. cuz no indian company is gonna recruit students that come out of Harvard and MIT (well for working in india that is).... only like the top 100 colleges out of 4000 in the states are good... i would say that the rest are all crap.... I'm in 11th now and i'm damn sure that i'm doing undergrad in india... maybe PG in the states but i dont really feel like it because imma settle down in india..

US education i feel the best
by sarath on Jun 29, 2005 12:32 PM

Dear readers i have seen some of you are praising indian universities and even went to the extent to say that they are better than American universities.
what i personally feel that it i absolutely untrue.
for a population of 100 crores in india people are speaking about only some 10 universities in india whereas for 30 crore population there are 150 research universities in USA(World class).Even after 20 years our universities can not reach the standard of some of the best universities in US. Not all research requires funding remember. theoritical research in filelds like science, engineering, economics, mmanagement can create tremours which our felllows do not do much. Here people do not study for study purpose....people want job, social status and all idiotic mind set up. Here people do not respect academicians or researchers....In US professors are "GODS". Unless the attiude of an Indian changes research in Indian universities will not happen.
remember Americans went to Mars....do not say because of Indians working in NASA they went...one would be called as a fool if he says so....Patriotism should not mask reality...let us learn the best qualities from American education.

MS and Phd from US is good...
by Vijay Sharma on May 26, 2005 11:54 PM

I came here as software engineer and after working here for 6 years and finihsing my MS , I'd say that education system here is not that, great academicaly, as compared to India, especially doing MS from IITs, but good thing is that, it becomes easier for you to get into fortune 500 companies, very quickly. If you are really interested in research then Phd is good option as well, it also pays around $3000 per month and satisfy your appetite for research, as you meet scholars from all over the world. There are some universities out there which offer Phd is management, but you can get into those programs only if you have MS and around 10 years of work experience.
Good thing I like is that you can work and study here without much pressure, from education side. Based on my experience I'd still say that doing MS from US has much better prospects than doing MS or M.Tech from India.

Always be smart!
by Shanmuga sundaram on Apr 06, 2005 03:32 PM

We all should agree that US education facilities are better than Indian educational facilities. So whereever we will good education we have to accept it. That's smart way. it doesn't mean our education system is not good and not going against patriotism. If u really want to show your patriotism study there, work there for a while (so that u can experience multiculture) and come to India. That experience really Nice! Wish u best oif Luck.
