I'm soon to graduate from college in Croatia, mathematics and physics. The idea is get to some graduate physics program in the States.
Since I am pennyless, I was wondering how much money do I need for first year of grad school. The choices would be a college somewhere in California (sun needed, hehehe).
Is there a school wich is wiling to pay all of my tutition and tax expenses?
The problem is that I don't have any insurance money. 30,000 or 40,000 $ is so much money.
I'm quite talented in physics, especially in computing and similar stuff.
As I see, most of the grad students can earn 10,000-15,000$ tutoring or assisting. But, since I'm not from the States this would be impossible for me in the first few months. That is probably one of mine biggest concerns. Anyway, if I understand correctly, that money can barley cover those, before mentioned, expenses. What will I eat (if I get anywhere) and where will I live?
Pff, maybe I'm better of staying home and surfing the net. Who needs another physicist anyway.
I don't want to get in to some top school, since i don't find myself in that class. Just want to get some quallity education.
Any advice needed!
