    I chose this university because of the high standard I believed it holds in Texas Education. Since I had decided on a biology major I had found that Texas A&M had a top 5% Biology program which immediately piqued my interest about this place. Upon visiting the campus and seeing the traditions and the culture of loyalty and respect, it was an easy decision to make. Apart from this, the university was also close to home and hence, allowed me to drive back and forth during the week. From all the universities I had applied to, this one was the university I was hoping to get into the most.

    Course Curriculum :

    The curriculum although seemingly hard is made easier through proper explanation and understanding. It flows clearly from one semester to the next and making a planner helps keep track of the courses to take for the semesters. Each course has it's own set of objectives which are clearly stated in the syllabus and on the first day of class. Each course is also properly planned for the whole semester, making it easy to plan ahead for tests and exams. The grading policies are also explained properly to help the students understand what is expected.

    I got impressed with the campus at first, it has a campus that offers you everything you will need with the college having super credentials of being the best college in Texas, top 4 in the USA and top 10 globally. So it is obvious the connections would be globally too so I decided to take admission there with an application fee of $90.

    Course Curriculum :

    Accounting for business results, value creation, business collaboration and career management will be the courses you will study about starting from summers. You found you have a strong basic with accounting, information systems, leadership, management and marketing.

    I got to know from surfing web portals reviewing how the experience of ex-students was with this college. I applied for the mays business school. Secondly, this college had some good infrastructures. So i without a doubt applied for the same having a $90 fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    This was an important turn in my life. I have gained plenty of knowledge, skills and learned life lessons from college and its atmosphere where everyone is so friendly and used to look so interested in their field of work with expert knowledge and had an experience of the industry too.
