    Hi, has anyone heard of a story like this?

    I hold conditional offers from Warwick, Bristol and Durham (economics) but really want to move to the States now. I'm planning to get in one of these unis first and then transfer to American universities hopefully Ivy.

    Does anyone know how hard it is to transfer? Or I might just go, sit whatever exams and apply as a fresher? I don't know what to do now... Any info or advice, please!!

    Do u think you'd be able to afford an Ivy league education? Do u realise how ridiculously expensive it is? I'd say forget it. Go with what u have. Maybe do ur masters over there. Thats what im doin. Best of both worlds. Education in the States but not half a mortgage in debt

    Yeah in an ideal world I would like to study in the states at some point, but as you say, the money is a huge (and probably insurmountable) obstacle.

    Thanks for your comments...

    Yeah.. I'm aware of financial dificulties. As a mature student I have bitter experience with money, but I also know that its not that misarable to be in debt. I will just think it as "reputation tax" over some years.

    Going there for a masters degree may be more common, but is there ANYONE who actually transfered to Ivy league from UK??
