Graduate school in the US - February 3rd 2013, 06:16 PM

Ok, so for those of you who do not know I am Canadian which is why I even have to ask.
I want to get my masters and was considering doing so in the US, preferably in a more northern state like Washington, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Oregon, New York, or Maine... Oh and Alaska too . Though I'd be ok with a southern state if push came to shove. I am just not 100% sure if I truly want to consider this. On of my first reasons to NOT do it is that I particularly enjoy being able to see a doctor without having to pay $40 000 to do so (and yes $40 000 is exaggerated), and I would be worried that maybe my masters wouldn't be viewed as equal once I go back to Canada (like that they wouldn't give preference to a degree gotten out of country) or maybe they won't admit me at all if they know I have no intentions of staying in the states.
So any info you guys have/know of would be appreciated. Thanks

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

What state and what school you choose really depends on what program you want. Most states have most programs unless you're looking at something really specialized, but within each state your choice of schools will be limited. You would be an international student and I wouldn't worry about them not taking you because you aren't from here, or planning to stay. My school has a ton of international students from a lot of different places. You would need health insurance, but every school that I know of offers students health insurance. I don't know much about it because I'm covered by my dad. I don't know about your degree being equivalent, maybe look at listings for jobs like you are hoping to get and see if there's anything about your degree having to be from Canada.

Yeah, my school has a lot of Canadians.
Figure out what you want to study and check with the schools you would like to apply to and see if the degree transfers to Canada.
Also, about health insurance, I am not on the school's plan but all schools have plans for students and you can check on their website or call and see what the plan covers (like if you will have to pay co-pay in full or if it covers mental health etc.)
Hopefully this helps in some way and that you can come to the US!
