Hello,
I have secured admits in both University of Maryland and University of Georgia.
I have full tuition waiver at Georgia while I have about 70k expenses at Maryland.

Any suggestions what would be a better bet considering I am an international student?

Thanks!

Congratulations. The full-tuition scholarship will be much better!
The two are ranked pretty close on the cusp of Top 50. I have had a discussion with a few Smith students and a Dean of admissions - it is a nice program that's about double the size but I can't see how it is worth that much.

I would pick Terry, as a pretty clear choice. Congrats!

Thank you bb. As mentioned by you, I'm more inclined to take the Georgia admit.
I have also secured admission from a similarly ranked school- Krannert... secured good amount of scholarship too (would cost me 30k USD including living expenses). I've spent time talking to various students and alumni. But I still lack clarity if the location of the school puts it at a disadvantage. Heard mixed reviews about its career center too. On the other hand, I keep hearing great things about UGA being close to Atlanta putting it at an advantage, enabling students to easily network and secure job in the tech industry at Atlanta. So in a bit of a dilemma still!

I would Choose Terry.
Smith has a great dual degree program.

But here is the deal => YOU ARE AN INTERNATIONAL CANDIDATE.
Both schools are similar ranked.
Why would you not go with the money.

I know I would.

Plus Terry has a really cool new building.!

Hello (again!) bb and Everyone!
Assuming that both universities (Georgia and Purdue) are offering me a free ride- do you think I should change my choice of university from Georgia to Purdue? Keeping in mind the fact that Job prospects are important for an international student like myself. I sort of need the reputation of the university to hold me in good stead in the event I need to move out of USA too.

Please advice! :)

Thanks!

I must also add that now University of Maryland is also made affordable (expenses might amount to 30k USD). Clearly I'm still torn between the three options.
Help PLEASE!

The only clearly here is that you are not listening... you have asked the same question 3 times and you are still not happy that you got the same answer. Would you be happier if you got 3 different answers? :-)

The schools are ranked #47, 48 and 50. Splitting hairs is hardly the description of the task here. Go to talk to international students and ask what job offers they have and how the job hunt is going.
