Undergrad school for international student

Stevo ( Malaysian Chinese ) from SEA, I always want to be an IBer, and get to know M&I last year. It lead me here. I'm going to do SAT and apply for US Uni, I'm 20y.o this year. By the time Sep 2012 I'll be 21 to enter freshmen year, quite fresh huh...

Cut the short
My question(s)
1. I need an EDU loan, YES ! They always ask for US co-signer~ There's one org needs only my country guarantor be it my parents or my guardian. I gotta find out.

  1. I have this thought. Do Sat in Dec and apply it before deadlines end, is this possible ? Sorry, US edu system is complex for me :)

  2. Most important one - What kinda school should I consider ? Public/Private, IB target schools or etc Being a non-resident, it's hard for me to lend 200k and go into Wharton... For Ivies definitely out of my list. Public Us, is Baruch BBA degree good ? Or should I go to some unknown college and do a B-school master ? I choose Baruch cos it's located in NY and most of the BB's are there, and chances are good I think :)

  3. Living expenses in NYC is hefty for a poor student like, so I gotta go to work anyhow... I'm looking for some poker dealer part time if there's any available

Errr... do a few searches on what are some great finance ugrad schools here in WSO and then maybe you can find more information on other forums such as College Confidential?? Some of your questions may be better answered there IMO.
