Warwick vs Bocconi
Hi guys , just wanted to ask you your two cents about my situation.
I am an 18 yrs old Italian student (South Italy) , and I applied to a few university for my undergraduate. I have a 1810 on SAT test so just got into some crappy colleges (with full tuition scolarship) in the US, not worth the effort to cross the Atlantic (I received offer for scholarship from University of South Florida or Hosfra university, so figure out the level).
Fortunately I applied to some unis in Europe and got in at Warwick (L100 Economics) and Bocconi (Bachelor in Economics and management taught in English). So my question is : In your opinion which of the two should I Pick?
Bocconi is unconditional , while Warwick asks me +95 at my final exam, but in Italy your final exam grade depends 90% on what you have done in the previous years, so it is an easily reachable task.
These are my thoughts
1)It's an hour with plane from home, 5 hours by train
2)I know a few of my future classmates
3)It's home in a certain way, I have friends there, it's my country after all, so same language, same food , almost same habits, while I could benefit of a course taught in English and an international environment (50% Italians , 50% foreigners)
1) Living it hell expensive
2) Maybe worse academics than a British uni?
3) No loans, you have to pay the tuition (in my case 10000€ per year or so) every year
4) impossible to finds a job straight after the bachelor, doing a master after a degree here it's NECESSARY to find a good job
1) I have heard Guardian ranked it 1st economics degree in the uk
2) Living abroad it's intriguing
3) Better job prospects after undergraduate
4) Better campus experience
5) Student loan
1) Where the f**k is Coventry? Just know it for the football team.
Milan it's 100000 times better
2) Far Far Far from home
3) Living abroad it's also scaring
In the future I would like to be the export manager of some company or do a Phd in economics in a US top uni and become a professor, but I am not able to figure out which of the two universities is better known in the US.
So yes I don't know if I want to be a manager or an economist, so if you could help me figure out my options it would be great
Thank you very much for the help monkeys!
