  • Always have a backup plan. That could be at least 3 months of rent money if coming alone. Don't assume everything will be handed to you... you have to work hard to get what you want. But in all, this place is pretty nice if you stay focus on your goals and avoid using social media.

    • Thank you for answering. I will be coming there as a graduate student and most probably would want to work there too. What states or cities would you prefer to live in IG you were me?

    • Well I haven't lived in any other state other than New York. So I recommend New York because it's the only state I've live in and know well. I'm sure there are better states to live in. You should research which states best suits YOU and would be the easiest for YOU to live in. Google search "cheapest state to live in the US" or "best state to live in the US", that could help.

  • If your accent isn't 100% American be ready to be verbally attacked by white nationalist hillbillies with nothing better to do with their lives.

  • God I hate the stupidity in this thread.

    Okay I will give it to you straight because either everyone is fucking so progressive or slightly racist. (Starting to think I rather be Alt-Right than be a Progressive >_>)

    The news are not really news. They shove their opinions in it (more than usual and dont disclose it at all) and distort the overall context. This might be super difficult for a person like you coming to the US, wanting to find the truthful news. Get your news from independent sources. I prefer Tim Pool on YouTube. He keeps up with current trend and sometimes goes above and beyond typical news companies. He was left for a while but he describes himself more in the middle of the spectrum. He discloses whether something is his opinion or not: http://www.youtube.com/user/Timcasts

    How to tell which is distorted from the overall truth, use The Knife Media website. They've been credible, they analyze typical main stream articles, and they rate how distorted they are from actual reality: http://www.theknifemedia.com

    • Thank you! I will look at these websites. I appreciate the help.

    • You're welcome mate. If you have any more questions, I can answer them and try to be unbiased as possible lol

  • Scammers. I call them the 'salesman types.' They're everything from a bum on the street asking for free money to the whore sucking your dick while mentioning she needs help with her rent. For females it's that guy sweet talking her just to use her for one thing. They are the products that don't sell themselves, thus there is always some type of talking head behind the concept like when you get a phone call and he says he's from the IRS and you owe money, but you're just a teenager and you hand the phone over to me..."I'm a U. S. federal investigator and our phone line is being traced as we speak. I only tell you because I don't want entrapment to be used to squiggle out of charges in court. Can I have your name and badge number again please?" They hang up.

    This place kind of has a way of making you hate the bums. Hate the rich telemarketers. Hate the politicians... and even the news anchors that falsely report on them. Baby boomers really fucked the rest of America down the line... Plato was right about when people try to vote themselves rich. It just so happens that pandering to illegal immigrants that also want money will be more than happy to vote for who will give them more free shit... the opposition tries to build a wall to resist this collapse of society (the last sane ones left). Me... they're all fucked and this great country is going to fall to socialism AKA communism. I don't care anymore. I'm becoming more and more nylest in a very different way.

    • I agree with you on most of the things you have mentioned. What country do you think is doing alright?

    • Oh god... great question! You just made me realize that I hate every country. I only see the bad first. I guess it depends on work ethic first. Governments reward and punish certain choices. So in a country that taxes a diligent worker to a great extreme in order to give a voter that wants a free ride in return for a vote is probably going to want to move to a place where their diligent work won't be taken advantage of for such reasons. Like they are still aware that all that tax money could still be money in their pocket instead... like the workers that don't pay taxes because they're illegal... and that country needs to build a wall and enforce the laws.

      Meanwhile in other countries... same exact pattern. Even the ones that used to be just too far for free loaders to reach... not anymore.

      So... my answer is the country that is least socialist/communist.

    • @dano65 Thanks for sharing and I totally understand you. My girlfriend is American and she owns a gun and even he goes out for shooting practice with her family. Everyone in her family owns a gun and I don't feel threatened in any way. She joked about once that her brother wants me to know that everyone in his family is a good shooter but it was just a protective brother talking😄 I agree with all the things you have written.

    • Yes, I know and I agree that it's good to let him know. There is a town in the Southwest with cowboys and hippies. Some visitors don't know that open carry is legal there.

  • Where are you moving from? That's probably relevant to the question because some things might be harder than others depending on where you are coming from

If you live in the city and want to live around other Indians I suggest 73rd and xerxes across from the hospital, a lot of doctors live in a villa of Eden prairie and it's right by the freeway

    • @jaysully01 thank you so much for the details.

  • The "real" America isn't what you see in the movies, and the majority of Americans are selfish assholes, and will never be friends with you.
    If you're an immigrant, they will NEVER consider you an American.
    Most people who immigrate here end up disappointed. I strongly advice against it.

    • That is not true for the entire country, and you know that most PEOPLE are selfish assholes right? lol Why would America be any different? After all, the Europeans who founded America (English, Spanish, French) were some of the most selfish Assholes of their time (and arguably still are).

    • Only blacks think the South is less friendly.

    • Oklahoma is good overall, you just have to avoid the racists 🙃😔 Kansas might be the most friendly.

  • Assuming that immigration/visa status is not a concern. . . you need to understand that the US is a huge country and it is very diverse. If you are moving here because of a specific job or a university, then you have no choice about where you live; otherwise, travel around the US some and get some familiarity with different areas before you make a decision on where you want to settle.

    • So glad I live in Australia, we can go about our day without ever considering the possibility of getting shot. In my daily life its not even something I think about.

  • Packs of Bald Eagles watch our every move. If you try to talk about something communistic or that could impede on one of our civil liberties or freedoms, they will swoop down and carry you away. Where to? I don't know and I hope to never find out.

      Do Americans who were born and raised there think of people with certain accents differently or create some stereotypes in their minds? I have a similar accent to Rajesh from the Big Bang Theory.

    • You are not the first South Asian to be in the area. People are nice. So, I wouldn’t worry about it.

  • It entirely depends on where in the US you move to. Some places are great for immigrants, some are not. It is such a large area that you cannot make a statement that holds true for the entire country.

  • Um it really depends on who you are. If you're a white heterosexual you will have no problem. Obviously race and sexuality aren't the only factors but as much as I hate to say it, the more of a minority you are the more dangerous in America (in general) it is
