    To study at a well-rounded, world-class education facility, I was keen to get in this university. At first I didn't know anything about the university but after I read so many articles and post about the university. I decided to apply here. My GPA was 8. I had to submit an application form costing around $50.

    Course Curriculum :

    At the School of Human Ecology, they combine science, creativity, and curiosity to formulate new solutions to some of life’s oldest problems. The dedication to academic excellence is matched by a strong sense of leadership, service, and enthusiasm for making the world a better place.

    This college is very inexpensive compared to most others and it has a very high acceptance rate. It has a exceptional education and curriculum in coordination with University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, but it comes at a much cheaper cost. In addition, the population is much smaller which provides smaller class sizes. This is convenient because it makes instructors much more accessible.It is also a commuter only school.

    Course Curriculum :

    I believe it is beyond adequate because of the University of Wisconsin standards that are held and it has also seen some improvement since the merger with University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee

    After applying to 34 colleges I only got into a few. UWM was one of those few. I did my research and knew I wanted to be away from home (Alaska is where I'm from) however I wanted similar terrain. Another thing that really drew me into the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee was the atmosphere the whole place had. Everyone greets you with smiles and warmth.

    Course Curriculum :

    Having taken college classes at another university back home I can say without a doubt UWM is way better. The teachers here care about their student and understand what it is like being a college student so they are not incredibly strict.

    To get the highest possible quality of education I applied for a study abroad program. It will surely broaden my study options. I applied for Information Technology in around four universities. And apparently was qualified in all of them. The University of Wisconsin was the topmost priority. The university will definitely develop my personality and help me grow as a person.

    Course Curriculum :

    A total of 120 credits are distributed in various areas like General Education Requirements, Core Courses, and Information Studies Upper Division Electives.

    I found out about this college from one of my friend who was attending the same year. I also researched and got to know that Satya Nadella is an alumni of the University. I connected with more people from my major and asked about the coursework and professors. The application fees was around 95$. I also selected this college because of it?s vicinity to Chicago and job opportunities.

    Exams :

    I have done my undergraduate degree in Information Technology and I was curious to learn more about Data analytics and Machine learning. This university provided good research and professors in the field. I also wanted to work during my school year to gain experience and meet people from different cultures. My GRE score was 297 and TOEFL score was 95.
