Hi everyone, I'm a newbie in this forum :) I have some questions regarding application for graduate study and need your help. I'm currently a year 3 student and coming to final year of undergraduate life, majoring in Materials Science & Engineering. I'm considering apply for graduate schools in UK or US, but don't know which one is better. Of course, anyone can say I may apply for both. However, I also need to prepare for either IELTS or TOEFL+GRE and these are somewhat associated with my university choice. May I ask for your suggestion of UK or US, given two universities of similar quality, regarding some criteria: - preference of industry/research institutions (in other word, my future career) - availability of scholarship - which one tends to be easier to get in. In addition, I'm going to graduate in June 2011. Can I apply for Oct 2011 intake this year (while I'm still in undergrad) or I have to wait until I got the bachelor degree and apply for Oct 2012 intake? Pls help! ^^ Thanks everyone.
