I spoke to a prospective Fall 2011 graduate student who got admit from San Jose State University and Colorado State University at Fort Collins. He had decided to attend SJSU, because of location and Silicon Valley will have better job market.
I asked him to consider CSU, since it should be comparatively easier to get financial aid at CSU.
He said that searching for jobs will be easier from SJSU, so he decided on SJSU.
I said that you will be able to apply for the same job even from CSU and one can always relocate for the job.
Reason for my argument –
Attending SJSU doesn’t guarantee a job just because of your location. Very small percentage of students who I know are working in the same city where they went to the school.
I’m sure there will be more students who will not agree to above argument, but decision making is tough when you are half way around the world.
I volunteered to give advise to the above person.
Do you think if someone doesn’t ask for advise and they could be potentially making a mistake due to uninformed decision, I should refrain from giving advise?
