I'm currently an undergrad at Cambridge University reading modern languages and liguistics, currently thinking about applying to an American university to do a PhD (in linguistics). It seems awfully expensive to study there, especialy at somewhere like Stanford or Harvard, so could anyone tell why I shouldn't just stay on here and get a PhD or hop across to Oxford, as it would be a good deal less expensive and it would take less time! Thanks for any comments.

Are you eligible for any scholarships? Have you applied for any scholarships? If its really expensive for you, then go to Oxford, its world-class university and you'll be given the same amount as respect doing a PhD there as you would at a university here.

I think so, the Fulbright commission helps a great deal if you can get the scholarship in the first place which is fairly competitive... thanks for your advice, I'll probably apply to Oxford. Although it's too cold here in England!

Id stay and go to Oxford, Harvard and Stanford don't even compare to Oxford and their deff overpriced;
