If you can get WICHE to go to SCCO, I would probably go there. It is a very good school with a long history of success. If not, pick your favorite school. I could understand going to the puerto rico school and i believe the students when they say that it is turning around its bad reputation. But the thing is, to turn around a bad reputation, you have to 1st have a bad reputation. This is not what you want to have when picking a school. If you feel like being able to speak spanish would be a major perk where you want to practice, you must definitely consider puerto rico, but you also could take spanish classes or learn it on your own.
As for shnurek's statement that peurto rico generally has less intelligent people, makes sense to me. It is not meant as an insult, but if that is not what that meant why do schools try to accept the highest GPA's and OAT scores. Its a universal concept. It doesn't mean that puerto rico students are not inteligent or are incapable.
