    To choose a suitable university for myself, I took help from a counselling agency as I didn't know much about this country. They helped me in shortlisted few university according to my grades and interest and I applied to all the universities and among them, I only received acceptance letter from here, so I decided to opt for it. By paying an application fee of $125, I applied here through the online portal of the official website.
