wannacomehome, buck naked, B566389, fishnfool thank you guys for your replies ^_^


I think that SNHU might be a good choice for me because I would like to experience 4 seasons. besides, the social life In SNHU sounds good. Yes Florida is closer to what I used to live in. However, it is always good to try to live a different life. But, the only thing that I am worried about is jobs, it is importnat for me to work while I am studying not because I am looking for money I mean it is okay for me to get an unpaid job so I can go back home with a good experience.

Abe, that's a great attitude! I'm sure you can find some sort of job, even if it doesn't pay well (lucky, since you're not in need of good money), or at least a volunteer opportunity. Four seasons are a great thing, though I wish winter wasn't quite so long. Good luck in your studies!

I agree with Wanna's comments about your strategy. If you have the financial ability to do so- by all means focus your employment on something that will give you valuable experience in the future, even if that means unpaid work. The long term financial benefits of doing so (ie, since you will essentially graduate with experience already) are incredible.

Also- as for the cold, just be prepared to dress properly. That means multiple layers of nice but fairly light warm clothing (not one layer of very heavy clothing). In all honesty its not bad if you are prepared. It will also benefit you to live somewhere that you can walk to class- then you won't need to use your car when its bad weather until you can get some practice/get used to it.

Manchester also has public transportation - you can catch a bus or hire a taxi if you absolutely need to travel and you don't have a car - lots of students DO have cars though

Much of winter is really about the person so it will ultimately depend on you and your outlook. That said I went to grad school with someone from Lebanon and he was absolutely miserable in winter. I also work with someone from India who simply cannot get used to winter and driving in the snow and she's been here for close to 8 years.

Conversely I have a friend from Australia and he is like a little kid with the fall leaves and the snowfall.....literally I've never seen anyone get so excited about leaves. He loves it.
