Hi I applied for Fall-2012. Got admits from San Jose state university-Software Engineering major & Texas Tech University for CS major. Please help me choose between these two on the basis of visa approval rate, internships & job placements.

In terms of ranking comparison, Texas Tech University is better than San Jose State University. International students including students from Asia are better represented in San Jose State University. In terms of cost comparison related to tuition, accommodation and living standard; Texas Tech University is cheaper than San Jose State University. Job placement & internship has equal opportunity with Texas Tech University having little edge.

USA student visa approval rate is based on how you present your case to the USA visa officer. Your visa denial could be on various grounds and University selection could be just one reason. You need to justify in such case the reason of your selection and joining particular USA University.

I hope this helps you to make right choice. All the best!
