    UM is a major research university engaged in research and sponsored program. While the majority of this work is housed at the Miller School of Medicine, investigators conduct hundreds of studies in other areas, including marine science, engineering, education, and psychology. I had applied through a common application form for an amount of $70, Also, my GPA was around 6.5.

    Course Curriculum :

    The da Vinci Program encourages us to rethink the map of human knowledge. It emphasizes connections between humanistic and scientific inquiry and their modes of understanding: objectivity, critical analysis, self-reflexivity, the nature of proof, authority, and the logic and rhetoric of written expression. It also helps define the distinctive elements that humanities classes can offer to STEM-minded students.

    Miami University is a very popular university with premium degree programs and courses at premium prices. The colleges have very good placement statistics and have good reviews about the faculties as well which were the main reason why I filled up the $70 application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    The Master of Science program in Computer Science is overseen by the Computer Science Graduate Committee (CSGC). The basic guidelines for approval of a student's program are recommendations appearing in the Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the professional society in Computer Science.

    Belonging to an architecture background, I wanted to pursue my undergraduate studies in architecture from the USA and had applied in 5 universities. I had applied at this ivy league university as it was the most efficient school among top national universities, being ranked 3rd for undergraduate teaching nationwide. I had applied through an online common application form by paying $70 as an application fee. I had secured a GPA of 7 at high school and wanted to pursue my education from this university as they were providing education at an affordable amount.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course included a wide in-depth knowledge about subjects that included architecture and culture, general physics, architecture and behavior, and management of the professional practice, along with models and presentations representing the modern architect. The curriculum even includes group projects, which were evaluated by experienced architects, thus providing us with practical knowledge, along with theoretical studies.

    The University offered everything I was looking for in a college! The nursing program is well-known, you couldn't ask for a better location and the University has a great overall reputation! Plus, I wanted a break from winters :)

    Course Curriculum :

    Overall, I like it, but I wish some changes would be made to the cognate system. It prevented me from obtaining a double minor. Say you find a cognate you enjoy and want to continue with it to earn a minor, you lose the cognate (which is required for graduation). I wanted to continue with Spanish to earn a minor, but by continuing, I would not be able to graduate on time since I would have to find and complete another cognate to take the place of Spanish.
