I will be applying to some selected universities shorlty and want to know more about the universities in order to choose the better one. I'm doing R&D for selecting universities and i need ur help in giving me some better knowledge about University of Buffalo, State University of New York .

Please do help me about this because i have only 5 universities to apply and if i get rejected from all then i will be in a very big problem.

    How easy is it to find a part time job (off campus or oncampus)?
    How is the funding scenario? Do i stand a chance with my profile to get any fee waiver/TA/RA?

Finally and most importantly i would like to admit that my main goal/motive for doing MS is to make Good amount of money, so i want to know whether doing VLSI Design in University of Buffalo, State University of New York will get me a good job(Good Package).
