    It was my interest that lead me to study this subject. I applied online and got through the procedure. I got to know about this college while I was researching where to apply for college. My background is of commerce study and I topped my state as well then.

    Course Curriculum :

    Here the main focus is on the analytic foundation in most kinds of business problems, they make us understand articles and research about consumer behavior, national health care costs, employment and international trade, crime and punishment, and high finance with ease building basic knowledge in each one of us.

    I have a keen interest in language and literature. I wish to work with the best of the companies hence I came to USA. My sister is already studying here so told me about this college as well as a few others. I have a background of commerce but i left it to pursue something I love. The application fee was somewhere around $55 to this college.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is great. I have learned things from different perspectives. not even that We were asked to take a class during the first semester of the junior year which provided a solid foundation for subsequent upper-division courses.

    I was very infuriated with brain science and wanted to be a neurologist. So I applied outside India to many colleges in Texas, Chicago, and other places. There were no application fees. I worked hard to get through school so that I could study neuroscience.

    Course Curriculum :

    We have regular workshops and my course is more focused on AI. Moreover, we are given both practical as well as research-driven knowledge.

    I had been planning to study abroad for years hence I used to search online and this college in Chicago. My uncle lived here for years so it was easier for me to live here. My educational background was decent enough so getting through got easier.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is research-driven and it provided me industry-driven knowledge. The way of delivering by professors is just amazing. The curriculum has everything that you need. They not only focus on your field of study but also make you more presentable by helping you with life skill techniques and market.

    When I was looking for undergraduate universities, I stumbled upon a Facebook advertisement from the university and that is how I came to know about it. Then I checked the details and thought giving it a try by applying through the common application portal. Another thing that motivated me to fill the application form is that there is no application fee so there was nothing at stake from my side.

    Course Curriculum :

    Computer science is currently one of the most demanded majors apart from an MBA. The key concepts that are covered here are programming language, object-oriented programming, data structure and algorithms, operating systems and system design. Other than students can explore different fields at the same time as well as website development, application development, machine learning or cybersecurity.
