    I wanted to study at Mount Allison University for two reasons. One is its diversity and the second reason being that Mount Allison University was ranked no. 1 university in Canada. Being a rank holder of my high school and having scored a good grade, it became easier for me to apply here. I paid an application fee of $50.
