I opted for this college because it is one of the highly ranked colleges in the USA. The application process includes sending a resume, transcript, basic personal information, test scores, essays, recommendation letters, etc. The application fee for the online submission is about $150 which is a non-refundable payment. I had a graduation score of 3.8 GPA.
We had a customized learning experience. With a lot of workshops our curriculum was filled with experimental knowledge. We had a lot of opportunities to put what we have learned into practice before graduating from college. So we were able to implement this practical knowledge in our jobs. The learning experience was beyond the classroom. The business analysts department helped us to elevate our skills in leading companies.
I always wanted to take up my career in a field related to mathematics as I was very much interested in numbers. I had consulted my high-school professor and came to know about this university. I had applied at four other universities and had chosen this university due to the good scholarships offered to me. I had a GPA of 8 in my high-school and had applied through the common application. I had to submit three writing samples of essays with an application and $85 as an application fee.
The course provided a strong background in areas of probability, statistics, data analysis, optimization, deterministic modelling and risk analysis. It prepared me to take up careers in diverse fields. I was taught quantitative working with a total of 123 credit hours for the course. I was offered various fields of study including mathematics, biostatistics, economics, business and computer science.
I came to know about UNC-Chapel Hill from my sister who was also a student at the university. Her positive feedback and the strong engineering program encouraged me to apply for an MS at the department of environmental sciences and engineering. I had applied online (common application) along with the application fee of $90 and had sent all the necessary documents via post.
It is a 2 year program tailored for students interested in pursuing research and higher studies in the fields of environmental sciences and engineering. The coursework can be quite challenging at times but we get to learn a lot of cool stuff. Apart from the regular exams we are also required to submit a research thesis as part of our graduate program.
Research availabilities and strong science culture. Most of the students here are driven and I needed that type of environment to remain motivated. The professors are all experts in their fields and there are a lot of opportunities for help and excellence.
It's really tougher than it needs to be and it's annoying how exams do not parallel the lecture or homework material. The information provided is useful and phenomenal, though it is not administered in an effective way for which students can really learn and crystallize information.
The Biology program was very prestigious. I enjoyed the vastness of classes, especially for microbiology. There were a lot of research and study abroad and internship options and I thought it would help me hone beneficial career skills.
The course here is very challenging. I like challenges and expected them but these challenges are a bit too harsh for the material. It's not really that hard to understand but there is so much extraneous information that ita hard to know what to focus on for assessments.
Beautiful school, well known for high academics. Always been a fan of athletics. Diverse campus and high achieving faculty. Great location and a great college town. I have wanted to go here since I was four.
Sometimes, the work feels like too much, but each student is being pushed to be his/her best. Students are prepared for the real world. Large class sizes sometimes make it difficult to focus on what is being taught.
I transferred from another school to this one because it was well ranked, I live in-state (so it was cheap), I knew people who went there and loved it, I'd been on campus many times before because I live nearby, and I liked the general atmosphere of the school.
I like the fact that there's a broad general education curriculum as this allowed me to explore some different interests. As a transfer, I only took a few general ed classes though, as I transferred most of mine in from my previous school. The poli sci curriculum is shorter than I'd like - I finished it pretty quickly. It also covers a wide range of areas in the field, however, so that was good.
Close to home, a great reputation, hard to get into, really good public policy program, in-state tuition, my friends all went there, unc basketball!!!!, it?s absolutely beautiful, good academics and social stuff.
I love the public policy department! It teaches basically how to go between the super technical research stuff and where policy gets passed. There are also a ton of super cool opportunities, such as the senior capstone, where you get to consult for a client.
It had a strong reputation for my major and was well known throughout the state. The name is very recognizable throughout the country and has held it?s reputation for a very long time period. The college was also close to home making it easy to visit family often and commute.
Overall, I feel very good about my investment in UNC-Chapel Hill. The Course Curriculum has thus far met all of the expectations set. The information is interesting and intriguing to capture my attention.
It's an in-state school, so it was within my price range, and it's a very prestigious school. It gave me the best value for my education, and it's close to home. I looked at out of state schools, and the quality of education was about the same for double the price.
The English program recently changed, so it doesn't require as many classes as it used to. I'm currently in the creative writing track, which offers a lot of flexibility. Of course, there are some annoying Gen-Eds I need to take, but overall the curriculum is flexible.
