pancake Posted January 9, 2015 at 05:13 AM Report Share Posted January 9, 2015 at 05:13 AM Well, I went to HIT myself to learn Chinese. They have some lovely teachers, but overall I found the experience just so-so. When I was a student there, they had a kind of "promotion" to try and convert language students to regular students. So they offered some modest scholarships for foreigners interested in a B.Sc/masters degree from HIT. Word on "the street" was that anyone who applied was pretty much guaranteed to get it. I contrast this with an acquaintance of mine who went to Stanford who had to jump through all kinds of crazy hoops to get admitted. After he graduated, doors opened that I didn't even know existed! A degree from HIT, by contrast, is going to be ok in China, but is perhaps not so competitive in the rest of the world. There might be valid reasons for selecting HIT over MIT, but honestly I am really struggling to think of any good ones. For a poor student, a MIT degree could easily take you places not easily accessible with lesser credentials. Not going there is going to 成为他一辈子的遗憾. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
