Flip a coin. The "American Dream" is alive and well in Australia too.

I have lived in Australia all my life. However I feel that I need to move on and discover and live in the USA. My reasoning is as follows; Housing affordability - comparing the USA and Australia USA is cheaper (except for NY & LA and prob some other places), I have always wanted to live in America. Work opportunities for me is better (I have researched my field - Oz is at least 10 yrs behind in my opinion) for me personally Australia is not for me anymore I am ready for a change and a new life. I wish you luck in your endevours.

USA.

Australia = basically a more boring, stale version of the USA.

I am from Australia and currently live in the USA.

You are studying your masters and for that reason i would choose the USA as the options available would be much more than what Australia can offer in the long term (prospective career choices etc). As much as i love Australia this is one of the things that a young and growing country like Australia cannot offer you the many choices the US can at this time.

My word of advice is "The American dream" is not necessarily what you imagine. I know Middle Eastern people always prefer the USA because of the 'dream' but i can assure you that dream still needs a LOT of hard work to become reality. Good Luck with your choice
