Hi, my daughter has got a conditional offer from Warwick for International management but have been told that this course is not so good at warwick, it's much better known for Economics. But her board exams didn't go so well ( am from India ) so she might not get Economics if I change now because the % required is much higher. Any views how does the International Management course compare to Economics i.e faculty, course, future potential etc. Second dilemma Bath, Durham or Warwick. At Bath I have Business adminstration and Economics at Durham Last dilemma USA or UK , how do the two education systems compare i.e campus experience, future potential, way of teaching, etc Lots of question so would appreciate whatever help / inputs one can give. In USA the options she have are Scripps or Bryn Mawr or Brandeis. If you dont have much time answer whatever you have some solid views on. Thanks in advance .. Confused father :-)
Duke MA & Living in Durham - questions!!!
pch posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi there! I am considering accepting an offer from Duke. But before I do so, I'd like to learn as much as possible about the city and the program, especially that I've heard and read some scary stories about Durham. How much is an acceptable amount of money to live in Durham? I do not plan on having a car, I am totally happy to use a bicycle as long as there are not too many hills on the way. I'd prefer to live no more than 2 miles from campus (and grocery shops!) but a more walking distance is preferable, as I've heard public transportation is not that developed (is that right?). I do not mind a place of lower standard but a must for me is to have my own room. I totally do not mind sharing a 2 or 3 bedroom house/apartment and do not need to have my own bathroom although this would be preferred. I am rather indifferent between furnished/not furnished but probably semi-furnished would be best. Given those criteria, is it possible to find a room for 400$ (utilities included!)? If not, how much would do? Are prices usually stated including utilities or not? If not, roughly how much would it cost (internet/water/electricity/gas/ whatever else there is to pay for) Is 800 or 1000$ per month enough to live on? (transportation/food/accommodation/other daily expenses) How much does food cost? Would this differ if I would cook most/some meals at home? Do students usually purchase their own textbooks or are the libraries well equipped? If you happen to know something about the MA program in particular, would you please share your thoughts, give some hints, etc.?
