    Statistics was on my wish list after high school and I had applied to a bunch of colleges where I have found the course suitable for me. My main reason for applying was that I by any means I failed to score in SAT then I will have options to choose from. Also, the application fee is zero here and the application process is through the common application portal.

    Course Curriculum :

    As a statistics major, there are two concentrations to choose from for the students. The applied statistics concentration is geared towards statistical methodology and research while the actuarial science concentration is for students interested in applying their knowledge to assess risk in industries such as insurance, finance or investment.

    I took up a consultation for applying to USA colleges for a bachelor's. He suggested to me some colleges on the basis of opportunity, faculty strength and quality and infrastructure including this one. But I was hesitant to apply because it is accredited to the church. But then eventually applied because there was no application fee and also application process was pretty simple through the common application portal.

    Course Curriculum :

    The education blends coursework with hands-on, real-world learning experiences and that is one of the best things about the curriculum. I liked the opportunities provided to learn about various upper-level fields like mobile computing, information theory, or computer networks.

    I have chosen this college because it provides very different coursework in education studies. To take admission to this college firstly I have filled the application where I have given all the details along with the many documents such as high school mark sheet, transcripts, counselor application, and other related documents. The application was free of cost for online application.

    Course Curriculum :

    Our language arts education program will turn you into an outstanding writer and language arts teacher. You'll take liberal arts and literature courses and write across a wide range of genres from fiction to poetry to business and technical writing.

    After completing my 12th I decided to study Law. I applied to a few universities for admission and I got an admission offer from Ohio Northern University. Doing a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice from this university opened various future scopes for me. I applied for the course through a common application form that cost me up to $55.

    Course Curriculum :

    As a criminal justice major, I have taken a challenging course in corrections, policing, the courts, and juvenile justice. I am also getting to study some of the parts of psychology, sociology, political science, statistics, and research methods.
