    My close relatives who lived in the USA had suggested me to take admission here and I also had researched a lot about this University. I had applied through a common application form and paid application fee $50 along with it. My 12th score of 8.9 GPA made my admission easier.

    Course Curriculum :

    The core of the curriculum provided me with a foundation in accounting, marketing, finance and other fundamentals of commercializing a product and creating a business. It provided me with strong preparation in the fundamental skills and systems like management, communication, accounting, finance, information systems, and so on

    Although I applied in 3-4 colleges, my education counselor had suggested me to take admission in this college. To get admission I had to submit a common application form which required that application fee $50. I even had to show my high school score of 9.0 GPA. Also, the application fee that I paid was $50.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course mainly taught me to create outdoor spaces that support human activities and that positively affect the environment. The curriculum made me work on real-world projects in collaboration with interior design, architecture, and construction management students. I had students subjects such as Design Communication, Landscape Irrigation Systems, Architecture Graphics.

    I came to know about the university and its courses from one of my cousins living in Washington. Then I visited the campus as well and checked its courses and cost of the degrees and then applied to the college for an application fee of $70 through the official website.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program provides general mastery of their field of study in Computer Science. The degree provides specialization and mastery of knowledge in a specialized area. Students are able to conduct state-of-the-art research in a specialized area that makes a contribution to the knowledge base.

    Washington State University Tri-Cities is located ten minutes from where I live meaning I can save both money and time in my commute to college. The teaching program offered at WSU Tri-Cities is good because there are many different school districts to student teach in.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is helpful but is very expensive. Depending on the class, you could be spending $150 on a book that you won't ever use. In other classes, the books are in the $20 range and are used every day, but for many classes, the books are overpriced.
