I grew up in a huge city and have always lived in a city. I prefer to study in a city but
I saw this video about studying in a small town versus a city (i.e. London) to save money. Is the sacrifice worth it?

Or is the difference in cost outweighed by fewer opportunities (i.e. part time jobs) in a small town?

I would live in a medium-tier city. Not too big to make you go broke, not too small to bore you with lack of opportunities. Like, UIUC has a decent sized population with a decent amount of opportunities.

But, then again, you need to see what your priorities are and take a call accordingly. How good your univ is. How good the program is. How well can you adjust in a small city..and similar questions.

Unless the University you attend is of the likes of UIUC, VT, Penn State, UMich, Dartmouth, Texas A&M, etc. (note what's the commonality in all schools I've mentioned - they're all in small towns but top-notch schools), I wouldn't go to a small town.

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. Also, before requesting for profile evaluations, please go through this excellent post.

2) Please take some time out to read these three threads 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.

I love to read, and then I regurgitate. I write - a lot - as my posts here and on other outlets would show. I do not make apologies for what I write (and how long it is). I do not sugarcoat things either. I don't tolerate vague questions, for any reasons - ignorance arising out of an inability to locate information when the necessary tools to do so (i.e. the internet, libraries, university websites, other forums/bulletin boards, etc.) are readily available, is not any kind of an acceptable excuse.
