Best place to study in the US
So, I was thinking about applying for university in the US but I'd like the opinion of some of you god damn Yankees as to which you think is the best place to study.

I'd like to be studying something along the lines of religion, ethics, anthropology etc.

Take note that I didn't really attend high school so I have very low qualifications... Though I do have a large number of them. I am currently studying Classical Civilizations. Therefore I don't have the grades for a top end university (though the one I'm at now is in the Russel Group, which are the top 24 in Britain).

Thanks a lot for yer timeeeeeeeeee

(hope this was the right place to put this!)

Have you considered attending a university in Canada?

I don't know which universities are best for your interests, but start here.

RE: Best place to study in the US
Depends on your budget. The "best" schools are damned expensive, and I'd like to think if you're studying anthropology, you'd want to study at a top tier university. I wouldn't want to spend $120K or more on a bachelor's degree that leads to shit pay, unless of course your parents are footing the bill.

Also what region of the US? You say god damned yankees and I think New York and the rest of the northeast. I am personally offended at the notion of being called a Yankee as I am from the Deep South.

When you say anthropology, I start thinking of schools like NYU, University of Chicago, Duke, and Boston.

I'd say Duke, but I'm partial to the southeast - gorgeous campus and much better weather than Chicago.

Public schools such as Auburn, Arizona, University of Texas, etc would be the next group of schools I'd consider.

Edit: When I suggest public schools, I typically mean ones that hold the state name in their title. If it's not top tier, what region of the country do you want to spend some of the best four years of your life? California would be fucking awesome.

Firstly, I'm a British citizen so I can apply for student loan (they pay all tuition fees and give grants out) so that I don't have to pay that back until I'm earning over £21k a year, and even then it works out around £9 a week. As long as I apply before I'm 24 I think I'm fine on the financial basis. Are American universities THAT expensive? Jeez.

I was thinking California sounds nice, but after the suggestion by Chas I've just noticed there are scholarships for those of commonwealth citizenship so I'm gonna look further in that.

P.S, don't care if you're offended.

RE: Best place to study in the US
If you wanted to study religion - look at Vanderbilt University. Nashville is a beautiful city with lots to do. My dad went to seminary there, it was also where I wanted to do my undergrad but I was encouraged to go to Auburn instead, as my grandparents paid for 8 semesters of my tuition provided it was an in-state school.

You could consider studying in Germany or even other European countries and get free tuition.
