Good college on a great location and in a great country
Tips: Initially, it was a bit difficult for me because I was a bit homesick but my friends helped me to get over that phase and introduce me to lots of on-campus organizations that used to organize events every other week which kept the students engaged. There was a bit of a cultural shift I experienced, but that was mostly because I was homesick. I did not get any scholarships. I am quite satisfied with the course and university, but a bit dissatisfied with the country because they are very strict on immigration.
Likes (Safety): The safety on campus is very good, there are many cops' vehicles on campus that keep patrolling the campus all the time to make sure that everyone is safe. I have had many good experiences in the city. Once I saw a person struggling to bike on the road, someone saw them struggling and called 911 and the cops showed up within 5 minutes and helped the old man.
Dislikes (Part time work): There are many on-campus part-time jobs available because the campus is really very big which makes it easier for students to find on campus jobs. I myself have worked on multiple on-campus jobs. As per the US law, an international student on F1 visa cannot work on off-campus jobs. The part time jobs are usually after the classes so it's easier to manage them. The average payout is $13.25 per hour.

Excellent college with excellent faculty and excellent campus
Tips: It was not a big transition for me personally because I see a lot of Indian students around me. Plus the Indian food around here is really very good. Additionally, there are many on-campus events throughout the year that keep you engaged. I did not avail any scholarships. I am very much satisfied with the university, course, and country because it is exactly how I thought it would be.
Likes (Quality of faculty): The quality of the faculty is really very good, they are always available to clear your doubts and concerns even after the class is over or even on the weekends. One thing that I find unique about my professor is that they create a story and then teaches us a topic, does not just read from a PPT but creates a story for everything that they teach to make it interesting. There are faculty members from across the world and not just from America.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): If I had to permanently settle, the chances are very less because of the Green Card backlog for Indians. Also, right now, the market is really bad for people who are looking for a permanent settlement option but you can always work on a working visa and continue to stay in the US. If given a chance, I would definitely immigrate to this country regardless of the chances being slim.

One of the best universities in the US
Tips: There weren't many cultural shifts because the university is surrounded by lots of students and the majority of them being Indian students. On top of it, there are a lot of on campus events that keep you engaged so that you don't miss home. I did not avail of any scholarship. I am 100% satisfied with the university because it is one of the top universities in the US, and the course I studied is really in demand right now, plus, the country is really ahead of all the other countries.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): The chances of permanent settlement are very slim because the green card takes up to 10 years to be approved which is really long time. There are other methods to stay in the US like staying on a work permit. If given the chance, I would like to permanently settle in this country as this country is a developed country and the wage is really good.
Dislikes (Public transportation): The campus is really very big and is connected by lots of public modes of transport. Shuttle buses are the most commonly used transport by students because they drop you right inside the campus and you can travel the whole campus in a bus. Public transport is free for students so the students don't have to pay anything if they are coming or going from the college.

Best university for Computer science.
Tips: Before joining students should know about the academic programs the university offers, and campus culture. They should know about location, cost of living, financial aid the university provides, research opportunities, university accreditation, housing options and lastly about extracurricular activities. And talking of my journey, I haven't experienced any culture shift since coming to the university. I am fully satisfied with the University and the course I chose.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Accessibility of faculty depends on the individual faculty sometimes faculty members are easily approachable and sometimes we need to connect to them via email or online meeting. Teaching methodology of faculty members are very unique as every faculty members are expert and knowledgeable in their field so they sometimes give students group or individual projects to work on, research opportunities are provided, and mentorship and access to different resources are given. Faculty members from different nationalities are there on the campus.
Dislikes (Public transportation): Campus is well connected to rest of the city. Mode of public transport available are shuttle-UM which operates within the campus and provide transportation between different parts of the campus; other mode are metro, bus, bike share. This University has partnered with bike service provider where students can rent bike for transport. But some drawbacks of public transport are the limited schedule of buses and trains, sometimes delays and crowding, and sometimes due to weather conditions some modes don't operate. Public transport is overall affordable and convenient to use.
