Yesterday I woke up and found out that I had been admitted to the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. It's part of the University College system (London School of Econ., King's College, Imperial)...and I was quite happy to find out I had been admitted.London is expensive to live in, but I'm sure the student housing will be affordable - check it out. In terms of tuition, it might not be that much more expensive. The University of London has a great reputation and you should get a great education - probably better than in the States. What else? London is fabulous. My Dad is British so I've been to GB a million times. You could hop a train and be in France in a couple of hours. London is very metropolitan. The Brits are great...I'm biased. I'll balance that and say Mexicans are great, 'cause my mom's Mexican. I guess it all depends on what you want.
Does anyone have an opinion of the British higher education system? I am rather reluctant to take a large financial plunge into the unknown, especially when I have been accepted to some decent US schools. I'm leaning towards SOAS, but I would like to know more before comitting.
