i need your advice for staying in Switzerland or Leaving!

i am currently doing my master in Switzerland , and i have admission from a Univeristy in US .
i really dont know if its wise idea to move to US for finishing my master or staying in Switzerland for that ..!

but i know they are alot of educated people in this forum which can give me some suggestions about making my decision ,
i have limited funds and limited time so i really dont want to make wrong decision at this moment ..

is this worth to stay in Switzerland and finish degree in this country over US!
is job oppurtunity higher in Switzerland than US !
what i found in this forum about US , it described as a nightmare no job , no money , Security low ,is this all ture ! or is more emotional than logical !

i really love US life and the way of living in that country despite i never been there but i really dont want to loose my chance if Switzerland is better place for living and earning for Educated ppl .!

despite please dont get me wrong with all my respect to all swiss people which i v found them very very nice and super polite people in everyway ,
but somehow the life in here is borring for me .

with all these aspects if u have some experiemnts about these two countries do you think is it worth to stay in the Switzerland or leave it to US for University degree!?

Re: i need your advice for staying in Switzerland or Leaving!

Will you be allowed to stay in Switzerland when you are finished
with your degree?

What is your intended area of study?

Sorry again, my eyes are getting tired.
Did they offer any scholarship(s)? Trust me, you can't beat an education at Harvard and the job prospects are enormous and infinite.

But give me some details about your background...pm if you want!

Re: i need your advice for staying in Switzerland or Leaving!

In any other case I would say, forget the US as the job prospects are terrible, especially if you are a foreigner. And in any other case the experience of having studied in the US will not help you that much in other parts of the world (although it is generally well regarded if you have international life experiences, especially in business or economy field - I'm thinking UN or corporate context).

However, considering it is Harvard on a full scholarship I would definitely do it (not many people get this opportunity and graduating from a renowned school does go a long way in helping you in the future).

Now, having said that make sure you spell Harvard correctly in the future (unless there is another school called Harward, in which case I would stay away).

Job market now is pretty sad, but in a few years after graduation, the market will be much better.

I'd go to Harvard with my eyes closed.
Even if the job market is not waving "jobs", you're still coming from the best institution in the U.S., going into one of the biggest job markets in world. Forget not that the U.S. is a 300 million country and CH is 7m. Many will that oh then you have more competition in the U.S. than in CH, well that's when you pull out the Harvard card.
I have a few friends who graduated from MIT in 2008 and 2009 and were bugged with daily calls to accept offers...
A school such as Harvard puts you at a real advantage; it's a private school...I mean you can't turn it down!
