As I check forums to compare top UK schools (specifically: Oxbridge and Imperial College) v.s. top US schools (MIT, Stanford, Caltech, etc.), most of people have mentioned the subjects, just like stuffs below, to consider higher priority for electing US schools:
The UK academic system is archaic, as the yearly system of examination has a very important role in the students' studies.
Students must choose their major, at first, and continue to the end.
But, all of these cases are about the undergraduate studies.
In the case of graduate studies, one often consider all top ten schools in the same level, roughly, where the most important factor could be the coherency between the graduate student and her supervisor.
If we confirm above argument, there is no real difference for an international student, in view of the academic system. Actually, the remained factors would be the whether, funding and stuffs like that?
Is there any important factor (except supervisor) for an international graduate student, to opt between potential offers the top universities in US and GB?
