    Confused with the university choice

    Hi,

    I have received admit from University of Texas at Dallas in MS in CS with no funding.
    I have also received admit from UTSA(University of Texas at SanAntonio) for MS in CS with grader position to be paid at 10USD an hour and which entitles me for IN STATE tution fee and 1000 USD joining stipend

    This would bring down my fee from ~$9,972 to ~$3,298 per semester. Inshort, accepting UTSA brings down my cost of studies to nill as I will get to pay 1/3rd of my fee and will earn ~$800 a month.

    UTD has a fee of ~$11,500 per semester.




    Please suggest me which one should I join. Does the selection of university effect my career ahead or H1 petition filing ahead or any adverse effect in the long run.

    I am a 5.5+ year experienced IT professional.

    Thanks a lot for the help.

    If we are to choose between UTSA,UTD and Purdue for MS in Computer Science with 6+ years of IT experience. Which one should I opt? Does the choice of university effects the package offered post MS completion? For Purdue, I have to wait till Fall which delays my MS by 8 months? Is it worth waiting?
