    TragicWhiteKnight: No, this isn't a rant about the state of American schools (but feel free to turn it into one...no, wait, don't...) - in fact, I'm thinking of going to America for graduate study next year and was wondering if you guys could hand out pointers on US college life.

    Cheers and jeers, that sort of thing.

    Any post-grads here? What's people's opinion of UCLA?

    Javierdude22: Tragicwhiteknight...very cool idea!!

    I have been carrying this idea along as well everince i came back from my exchange to California, im totally in love with that state.

    But im wondering: how are you gonna pay for an entire graduate study? Cause thats my main concern, tuition fees are gigantic, even for state schools like UCLA ( cause we-d be outta state).

    I could get a couple of scholarships here, but since they are focused at Europan schools the amounts are just not very big, unless youd be able to get the Fullbright scholarship...(that would cover a year though :( )

    Or are you willing to go into debt or it? Europeans always had bigger fear for debt than Americans, i have that as well.

    So basically, how are you gonna realize it?
