    I was searching for colleges for my course and I got my eye on this college I searched about it and I got fascinated by seeing what they were offering. I applied to other colleges also but my heart was set to go to this college. I applied through an online portal with application fees of $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course is very difficult so I had to give my 100%all the time. It allows improving ourselves and brushes our knowledge for further studies. we have to maintain a certain GPA to get passing marks.

    I visited this college with my friend who was studying there and I liked their infrastructure, their vibe. I was so hyped by seeing the environment, people, classes. I applied to this college with other colleges. I applied to the college through the common online portal with just 75$ as an application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course in itself needs lots of knowledge and experience. the course was made this way that I was not bound to the classroom discussion but also I was made aware of real-life situations.it was a student-friendly environment with a focus on developing students skills

    I decided to opt for Carnegie Mellon University as they have a transformative impact on society through continual innovation in education, research, creativity, and entrepreneurship. After securing a GPA of 7.6, I had to submit a common application form for $75. I was keen to get admitted here.

    Course Curriculum :

    The M.S. in Computational Biology program has a low student-to-faculty ratio to ensure that each student receives individual attention and advising. Together with the M.S. Program Advising Committee, each student designs a unique schedule of research and coursework to address specific needs and goals.

    I had applied in various universities but I liked the curriculum of this college plus there was a lot of good reviews on internet. So I immediately applied via online application form by paying the application fee of $75. But I had to submit my bachelors score of 9.2 GPA.

    Course Curriculum :

    Course was designed in a way that helps us solve real world problem plus it included both practical as well as theoretical knowledge. My curriculum included the subjects like Programming, Machine Learning techniques, Data Visualization and Reporting, Risk Analysis, Statistical analysis and Math.

    My university's main focus is to create a transformative educational experience for us and help us focus on deep disciplinary knowledge; problem-solving; leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills; and personal health and well-being. My GPA was 8.2. I was required to submit a common application form worth $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    In my program, research is an integral part of our experience in and out of the classroom, from start to finish — beginning with our first economics courses and ending with independent research in the Senior Project capstone course or the Senior Honors Program in Economics. In the end, we are prepared to lead, innovate, and stand apart in any field we choose.
