I'm from Russia so I'll share what I know about mandatory service.Russia and many CIS states have a mandatory 1-2 year military service program.
I got a full-ride at the University of Minnesota, and now my parents are pushing me to go there, even though I would LOVE to come here.Join the Facebook Group: Facebook is a great place to meet your future classmates and get questions answered by current students.

Any tips for me to convince them MIT is a better investment?
