Hey everyone.. I can see that a lot of you study or hope to study in the UK (with a handful of oxbridge hopefuls!). Out of curiousity, are any of you looking at the US for higher education?

I would have considered it, if I hadn't managed to get into uni in the uk, - though the costs invovled would have been a struggle.

my parents are moving to the US next year, abandoning me...i had the choice to apply either here or the US,i chose the former. One reason: The education system here is better.

The American education system works differently. In teh first year of UNi, they teach to people who are about Just past GCSE level here (ie they have no 6th form) . So they have roughly 1 more year than us when studying in UNI.

But of course the more elite universities are better.
