    I was looking for a good college in the USA to get my master's degree. I found this college online and explored the curriculum. Even my cousin also studied in the same university so he helped me out with the procedure.I found the place great and applied to the university through an online entry site for $ 100 admission application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    In a full two-year curriculum where we learn about our country's economy and develop strategic thinking skills to deal with business challenges. We will have the opportunity to do an internship and gain experience as part of the course.

    I always wanted to live abroad so I asked a friend about the some of the best colleges in USA. Since my friend's brother was in the same college, he told me that it was one of the best colleges that offered masters in business administration. I had to pay $ 250 for the online entry form.

    Course Curriculum :

    I had to open my mind and think normally in order to keep up with others. It was like having fun and learning at the same time. There were a lot of webinars for us, many guest talks from the field and online. We have been given the opportunity to visit different companies and know how things are done in the company.

    I opted for this program because performing is what I was born to do. And I can do anything like this that will save me tons of money. Choosing The University Of Texas at El Paso is what my family wants for me to do, even though I am currently a senior at Ezekiel Ezra Smith High School. I am currently getting 28 credits so I can graduate because my high school graduation is in June and I will be turning 18 in May.

    Course Curriculum :

    That it’s good for you, and it’s gonna help you get where you need to be.

    I was able to take college classes in high school since I was in an early college high school, and UTEP was able to transfer the credits I had previously earned throughout my high school years (from El Paso Community College (EPCC)). I was admitted to UTEP as I started my senior year in high school, and it was a great benefit to be able to take classes at UTEP with no cost and be provided with transportation to and from UTEP by our early college hs program. I did apply to 5 other colleges before the end of my senior year in high school, but it was just more beneficial to stay in UTEP due to the cost of traveling and living somewhere else.

    Exams :

    At UTEP, there's a 3.0 GPA requirement and an SAT range of 920-1130. My GPA score was 3.5 (it is now 3.6), so it was no problem at all; my SAT score was in their range of scores as well and I was able to transfer 57 credit hours. The reason I joined this program, was because aside from being eligible, I was given an estimate, or average, of the amount of money that it would cost to attend UTEP. Staying home without the need to pay for housing at the college helped me save a lot of money along with the amount of financial aid that I would be awarded if I stayed. Getting a tour and familiar with the college before the start of my senior year was also a motive that kept me at UTEP instead of having to move to another school that I wouldn't know much about.

    Academics and research are extremely good programs. My school is now an R1 designated school, and I think that will help me advance in careers within the STEM field. The tuition is cheap in comparison to other universities as well.

    Course Curriculum :

    I think the curriculum is amazing and I feel well prepared for graduate school and my career. The professors are willing to help because they know that their course load is challenging. The courses are difficult but as long as you do the work you should be fine.
