高中留學生問題

Hi,我目前是在美國讀11年級,沒公民也沒綠卡

在為大學著想時,出現很多問題,希望各位熟知這方面訊息的大大能為我解答

At this point, going back to taiwan after graduate is something i will not consider at all,unless it's hopeless to stay, so i must figure something in order to stay, but not causing my family financial issues, and something is actaully possible and helpful.

這是前提

跟學校counselor談過後,總共有三條路可走

因為家裡的經濟狀況只能提共給我15k,因為我還有一個弟弟隔年會是一樣的狀況

我有興趣的major是護理,藥劑,或biochemistry

1. 就讀附近的community college,很多人告訴我,先讀一年再轉四年大學

但我的疑問是,會去讀就是為四年大學要38k左右的費用,獎學金並不足那23k

難不成讀完一年community college那23k就能解決嗎? 要轉是說轉就轉嗎?

這部分困惑,畢竟讀兩年cummunity college出路並不是很好。

2. 前起天pheonix的一所私立大學,GCU來學校介紹

根據counselor所說的,這所學校是商學院和醫學院還不錯

每一個credit只要700左右,況且GPA只要有2.8宿舍就免費,且依我的GPA還有4k的獎學金,若我讀的是護理,再給4k,所以這是我們家經濟狀況絕對能給付的,比我現在高中的費用還便宜

但我的問題是,我並沒有在前50科系排名list上看到這所學校的系

這樣讀出來會好嗎?

3. 最近聽說,國際學生也能使用student loan,不過假如以university of san diego來說,學費42k,這樣得貸款27k,四年下來台幣三百多萬,雖然是學生貸款,利息並不高,且畢業後才須開始繳付

以一個優秀的大學畢業生來說,這樣的狀況是其所能應付的嗎? 況且畢業又不是保證有工作,不是嗎?

但有好學校卻讀不起就覺得很可惜,我希望能了解這樣貸款的風險

麻煩針對以上這些問題,提供一些建議或出路,謝謝

@ Gary :

i'm currently attending a private high school in AZ.As you said, it will be hard for me to get a job after college graduate,that's why i am choosing bachelor nursing science(BSN) probably at GCU

用英文打好占空間,總之我會想讀護理是因為我本身科學類的都很拿手,原本是想讀biochmistry,但附近的UofA和USD都讀不起,GCU又剛好有護理,且願意給我獎學金,這樣到底好不好? 護理不是很好找工作嗎?

3 個已更新項目:

Yes i know GCU does not provide medical program

Bachelor of Science in Biology: Pre-Medicine

Bachelor of Science in Biology: Pre-Pharmacy

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN)

aren't those it?

    I assume you are a F-1 Student or similar legal non-immigrant status.

    You say you don't want to leave. In this, I will say all answers will disappoint you. In most of the cases, you have to leave as it is difficult to get a job and the employer is good enough to sponsor you a visa. Even more, you have to compete for the visa quota.

    The only chance you have is to find a boyfriend or girlfriend and get married before you graduate. This is the only method.

    Of course, you can try Diversity Visa Lottery. Again, if you are lucky enough.

    In answering your questions:

    1. Never rely on scholarships, especially you are not a legal immigrant. Scholarships, in most of cases, are not designed for you.

    2. Community colleges are 2-year, not 1-year.

    3. The price tag (cost of enrollment) for college/university includes your living. So adjusting your living style can lower your cost.

    4. GCU does not offer medical program. So there is no medical school. See the following for detail:

    http://www.gcu.edu/index.php?page=degree-programs&...

    5. GCU is not accredited by AACSB, the leading accreditation body for world-class business school.

    6. GCU sounds too good to be truth.

    7. All non-immigrants are not eligible to loan (due to its ability to repay).

    If you are an illegal immigrant, please respond for further options.

    Make sure you are for sure about the scholarship.

    Also, make sure your state's RN Board accredits GCU before you study.

    there are several reasons that ppl choose to go to a 2-year/community college over a 4-year collge. one is their hs gpa isn't good enough for the school of their choice, and they plan to use that 2 yrs in cc to get a good enough gpa in order to transfer to the school of their choice.

    2010-03-10 09:40:42 補充:

    still, there is a risk that transfer may not be accepted after all. do you think you have whatever (determination, disciplines, etc.) it takes to undertake this 2-year plan and succeed? it will be ur decision to make.

    2010-03-10 09:57:34 補充:

    the second reason is cost. tuition at a cc is relatively cheaper than a 4-yr college. since workload won't be as demanding, some would try to work part-time to supplement their fundings from parents/loan/scholarship. working will take time away from studying & may have an impact on their grades.

    2010-03-10 10:00:51 補充:

    some would try to take as many credits as possible in hope to finish up earlier, but end up biting more than what they can chew. their grades take a hit, and affect their chance of transfer. these are the pitfalls to watch out for.

    2010-03-10 10:25:53 補充:

    4 u, money is an issue, going to cc wont solve money issue, it's to minimize the total cost of getting bachelor. it does add some uncertainties along the way. it's ur decision

    u'd want to consider need- & merit-based financial aid. check w/ ur hs advisors, see what r available to u

    2010-03-10 10:38:53 補充:

    i checked gcu website, it's a private christian college. it may be helpful if you are staying local after graduation. in my opinions, it won't open many doors for you.

    2010-03-11 10:03:25 補充:

    there is no perfect solution. good luck with whatever you decide on. :)

    如果你以後要待在美國工作學校並不一定要前五十名,但也不要挑學店...你可以申請國際學生貸款,但前題是要有一位信用良好的美國公民當保人. There are some universities offer in-state tuition for "international transfer student" (if you transfer from a community college with good GPA).

    如果有身份問題要考量的話念護理很快就有工作及辦身份, 念藥劑也不錯薪水也高但讀的時間較長希望對你有幫助的時間較長希望對你有幫助.
