    Amsterdam is a very vibrant city. The Dutch culture is very open and welcoming, and it's ideal for international students. Therefore, I went on a search with the help of a consultancy, which helped me get into the University of Amsterdam. I went on to fill the online application from the portal. The campus, students, faculty, all in all, it was the right decision made.

    Course Curriculum :

    Business Administration course gives me knowledge about the things I could apply in practice. When I will be in my third year, I will have options to specialize in four things: accounting, finance, marketing, and entrepreneurship. The marketing course is extremely interesting, will I will be taking up. It focuses on the psychological parts

    I wanted a small school with good Political Science connections. Touro offers gold internships and great professors for the political science department. It is also an affordable school with a good location.

    Exams :

    I took the ACT and got a score of 31. I have not taken any other tests. I may eventually take the GRE or LSAT.
