Please help in choosing one of the below options :

- go to a famous university giving me 90% aid, reaserch facilities but B.Sc. major
- to go to a very ordinary university but B.Eng. major and no aid or research facilities.

Please remember one thing that B.Sc. is a three year course and B.Eng. is a four year course. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

go to a famous university, take 90% aid, reaserch facilities and B.Sc. major- or just do whatever your heart tells you is right.

B.Sc. are good studies, unless you are really aiming for engineering... what good is to study eng if there are no research possibilities? also, you'll have the opportunity to enroll into grad studies a year earlier... and that shouldn't be a difficult thing after having undergrad degree from a top university, plus, you'll do research for 3 yrs and save the money for excellent grad. studies..

I would go for the first option, definitelly, but this is merely my opinion. Again, just do what you feel you'd be happier with!

best of luck!

Eh, any excellent grad program in science will financially support its grad students through TA positions, Fellowships, GRA's and tuition and fee remission. I'm going to a great grad school and I'm broke. :)

I guess my questions are: (a) what do you mean by B.SC. and B.Eng (b)Why is the B.Sc. only a three year program since colleges in the US are all 4 year?
