Prestige or Easy school?

A photo of hamsterpower7 hamsterpower7
For undergrad, it doesn't matter.
Do you really think you learn a different "calculus I" or "linear algebra I" depending on what school you pick?
Honestly?
YOu don't. Calculus is calculus, and linear algebra is linear algebra.

Pick an easy school if you want. Pick one that gets you the best scholarship. Pick the one that's closest. Hell, pick the one that's furthest away.

All that matters is that you get your degree. It's the same everywhere. Grad school is a different story, though.

The US will recognize schools here. They haven't heard of any of the ones here, but they will surely let you in if you have research, recommendations, good grades, etc - basically, all the standard stuff.
