The United States is a complicated and often misunderstood place. It gets a bad rap for things that are often quite trivial and it gets ignored in areas that are often quite significant. For example, 50 of the top 100 universities in the world are in the US. How can this be? It’s the land of the dumb and geographically unintelligent right? Well, wrong. The fact is that Americans aren’t quite as dumb as people make them out to be. Why else would more foreign students go study there than any other place in the world? Those universities are verifiable powerhouses of knowledge. And many of those students end up sticking around, starting families, and settling down. And yes, they become American. So the fact that American education is poor is not very accurate. Furthermore, each of the 50 states has its own education system, some good, some bad, all very different. Where American universities could improve, however, is in the cost. There is a legitimate problem when it comes to the finances. And that is why, if you stick around to the end, we’ll offer some legitimate advice that many people have already taken advantage of. These are 25 things that most people don’t know about universities in the United States.
