Help with program and uni choice
#1
Hello.
I had posted here before asking for a cheap masters program and I received a lot of helpful suggestions. I decided to go with NAU and their MCIT program. While this was happening I was on the waiting list for a university masters in computer security engineering and artifical intelligence at Universitat Rovira I Virgili. Two days ago, I received an email from them saying I was admitted. 
I am yet to complete my registration with them. Should I move forward with it or wait for acceptance from NAU? I don't care what the program is, I just need a masters degree thats equivalent to a Canadian masters.
Please advise.

NAU being competency based, I would wait for NAU if you plan to accelerate, afaik admission is not very competitive.

When I applied I called the help desk and she was able to give me a timelines for the next decisions round

How was your experience at NAU? How did it take you to graduate? How many hours of work per week did you put in?

I wasn't familiar with this school before this thread, so I took a look and the Doctoral program in Health, Psychology, and Psychiatry sounds very interesting, but I can't find whether this program has an online program or not.

I also can't seem to understand the tuition prices. I can't really see what they are for each program. If there is something I'm overlooking, please let me know.

I see now, thanks. For some reason, the link I went to before listed everything in a very strange way. Those prices are really a steal.

For a year long program its cheaper than the NAU. So idk if i should go with this or the MCIT since in theory I could finish that in 6 months.

If you live in the United States, and the U.S. program is less expensive, I think it's a no-brainer to go with the U.S. program. The only time I would say otherwise is if a foreign program is well-known internationally and more prestigious than the U.S. program which I don't think is the case here.

Being from the U.S., I was looking from a U.S. perspective. I doubt Rovira Virgili is known much if at all in the United States since this is the first time that name has ever been uttered here, and only twice at the other board--14 years apart--with each time bringing up scrutiny due to lack of familiarity. That says nothing bad about the school, just one country where people don't know about it. 

If you live in a country where Rovira is well-known then that's something to factor in since NAU may not be known at all where you live as most U.S. universities aren't well-known internationally just like most schools internationally aren't known in the United States. Heck, most U.S. schools aren't even well-known in the United States outside their surrounding communities for that matter.
