UFL CS vs Iowa State CS

Hi,

I have received admits from UFL and Iowa State in Computer Science. Can you help me in choosing the university.

UFL - Mostly 35 lakhs for two years
Iowa State - Received TA(1000$ per month and instate tuition). Also 25% scholarship. 6500$ per year. Mostly cost will be under 10lakhs for two years.
Also, I received 4 undergraduate courses as prerequisites to do in the first year for Iowa State University.

Which university should I choose? Financially Iowa State seems a good option. I heard UFL is really good. But the I have to pay the whole fee. So, in a fix now

Does going to UFL will be that advantage compared to Iowa State.
Please help me. Thanks.

At the end, in situation like this where there is clear differences in the rank between the alternative programs, it is about risk-taking appetite. I am a risk-taker who wants to maximize my outcome and - if i were you - I will take UFL. In cases where the differences are not much, you be good in either selection.

cheers,

EE

Personally, if the cost difference is how much you say it is, then I wouldn't go for UF. That logic might not work for anyone else though.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix.

2) Please take some time out to read this and this thread in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.
