    UMass is a better place to be researcher
    Tips: The coursework would be tough, the place is bit remote. There is no TA/RA positions but plenty of on-campus jobs are available. Learn to balance everything together. Master's journey is not as easy as it seems in India and the education pattern is very different. Hence, one needs to break the stereotypes before pursuing this dream.

    Explore as much as possible. Good course.
    Tips: Not much cultural shift is there to experience. No scholarships are there at University of Massachusetts Amherst. Everything is good as of now, courses are also good. Umass is a bit of research oriented so if you are interested to research then go for it. Very less systems courses, so if you are not into AI/ML things then think again.
    Likes (Student Life): Student life is pretty cool, there are many gyms and many sports activities if you are interested. The food also is great in the commons where you can get all sorts of foods including Indian food, so it's pretty much covered, and the living is a bit expensive which is a problem.
    Dislikes (Value for money): It's very expensive so think about that as well. And there are no TA or RA jobs so that is another minus point. The only part time allowed is the UMass dining, which helps you get food and money which is decent enough and also there will be no way of income.

    Course framework is good for work opportunities.
    Tips: TA/RAs are not allowed in the CS department but it is allowed in the other departments. Happy with the course. Scholarships are not available for this course. A cultural shift is also present. Food is difficult to get from India so knowing cooking before coming here is a must.
    Likes (Value for money): Course content is good. ML is upcoming and Mass Amherst has a very high rating for Machines Learning or Data Science concentration in Computer Science. For other courses, there is a possibility of TA/RA and in MS CS there is a possibility of gradership. Even good part-time jobs are available to keep you giving.
    Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Permanent immigration is difficult in the US. But after doing an MS the chances are less since H-1B renewal is less. If the school is offering Ph.D. programs and is a public land-grant university, like Mass Amherst, it will offer Ph.D. programs and will give you a chance at immigration options.

    PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
    Extremely good for Computer Science
    Tips: This university does provide TA or RA easily. Grade posts can be applied and is quite easy to get into. Otherwise, there are plenty of research opportunities and diversified faculty research fields. Courses such as RL are a must for computer Science students as the concepts are originated here.
    Likes (Part time work): There are about 4 dining common and 1 canteen, hence plenty of openings are available for students. They allow the student employees to eat there after their shifts and provide a health and wellness fund. The pay per hour is also good enough Hence, the benefits are plenty.
    Dislikes (Indian Food): Indian restaurants are very few at Amherst, compared to other cities in the US. There are about 3 restaurants about 10 miles away from the place, good authentic Indian food. Either way, you have an option in Doordash from these restaurants. Cannot expect too many options.
