Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I am being presented with a unique opportunity, but I am not sure if I should take it. My wife is Filipino, and there is a chance that we may move to her country for a few years. If this happens, I'll have to get the Filipino equivalent of a green card, and that will allow me to attend school there at resident rates, which are in the neighborhood of 25% of American rates for a typical state university.
The problem is, I have no idea how to go about finding out if the degree will be worth a damn for employment in the US. I'd like to keep my options open as far as the possibility of employment or attending graduate school in the future. I used to work in the office of a research lab, and we had a lot of Chinese and German graduate students there that were educated overseas. Although it would be nice to get a college education for $10000, the degree will not be worth the paper it's printed on if I can't use it.
Does anyone know how I can find out if I'll be able to work with an overseas degree? I should mention that I'm looking at either a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering.
