Liberal and Economics Universities in China

Postby zacb » Mon Sep 10, 2012 4:00 pm

Hey. I am weighing my option for college after I get my Associates here in the States. I am considering maybe attending Northwood, which has good classes on Austrian Econ, plus it is close. The only problem is cost (16,000 without scholarships), which I might be able to swing with scholarships, but then I would have to stay in the States 4 more years (which I would hate to do, but last resort). I have also considered LSE, wich cost and location would be no problem, but I am having a hard time with finding their online requiremtns (online classes). My choice that I kind of thought of before, but that re-entered my mind, was maybe getting a student visa/scholarship to China. My only concern is, first, what is the cost of living? Second, what is the prestige of these colleges worldwide? And third, how liberal (in American context, conservative/libertarian) is their teaching? I found the top schools for Econ (which I am going into), but I would like to know my chance, how liberal they are, and the costs associated with getting a BA. Here is the link: http://news.at0086.com/China-university ... China.html
Thanks again

Winston - FYI - couldnt see the body of Zac's post till I "quoted" him.

Zac - clever idea - you could start a trend!

Ok I fixed the problem of Zac's post being invisible. The reason was because he put the url tags around text in addition to links, which somehow caused the whole post to not appear. His url was wrapped wrongly like this:

Code: Select all
[url]http://news.at0086.com/China-university/Top-10-Universities-with-the-Best-Economic-Schools-in-China.html Thanks[/url]


As you can see, he shouldn't have put "Thanks" between the url tags. It was supposed to go after those tags. That's what caused his post to be invisible. Strange. Anyway, if this happens again to any of you guys' posts, check to see if this is the problem.
