    I worked at University of Texas at El Paso (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cheap tuition and plenty of research opportunities leads me to say. If you dont have a problem talking to the professors, research opportunities, grants, scholarships abound. Get ready to work a year for free though while they put you to the test.

    Cons

    Must love or be interested in publishing Research Papers... otherwise you will suffer
