You get to study in a new country and they dont?
Seriously though- I dont think you are at an advantage unless you are from an under represented country. Having said that, dont know how much diversity matters for an MIS program. Are you interested in PSU?I went to school there(for my MS in Industrial Engineering) and can give you some insight if you want to.
I'm an international applicant for MIS. So can anybody tell what's my advantage compared with American students?
