  1. It seems like every college list always has the same top schools no matter what publication or topic (ivy league, UCLA, UT, Duke, NW, UMich, et al).

    One covert aspect of these top lists is that the top schools are always more expensive except for schools in Asia where the more prestigious schools are actually cheaper!

    For example, at National Taiwan University (Taiwan’s Harvard), the government subsidizes student’s tuition as a reward for admission so it’s one of the cheaper universities in Taiwan.

  2. my name is mustapha adeniyi olalekan, i want the government to help to come and study in the uk .i stop my ssce/neco examination last two year,because i did see a suppoter to help to forder more i was drop out i will very greatfui if you can heip me. i live at n0 30 fashinro street maza- maza lagos nigeria
