    I choose Andrews University because of its high acceptance rate. My friend told me that the college has a good faculty-student ratio and the college is well known as well. So, I applied and I was lucky enough to get accepted. I had to apply through an online medium and I had to pay an amount of $30.

    Course Curriculum :

    Along with the normal course curriculum, some different subjects and events were introduced to us. Like personality development classes and motivational speeches, etc. These things kept me motivated and also helped me to stay positive at all times.

    I saw an article about reviews in a newspaper. The colleges were ranked there according to international students' reviews. And for MBA, Andrews University had the most positive reviews. So, I decided to join this college. I had to apply for an admission form online and $60 was paid by me for the same.

    Course Curriculum :

    We had events and different activities all the time. We used to have quizzes and competitions as well. I miss that kind of curriculum a lot. We also had many game competition inside our campus. In my opinion, the curriculum we had was right next to perfect!!

    The field of digital media fascinates me from always, so I thought of pursuing my career in Graphic Design and as I want to pursue my education in the US so I did my research and find Andrews University good. I have also heard that the college's Arts center is very creative complex and motivates students for their career as the students could be seen working there 24 hours a day. So, I decided to apply here through the online portal and paid $30 as the application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    This course made me skillful as I just not only worked on tools but I got to learn how to actually implement the thought into reality. I have explored my area of work as I made a project on future expected designs. The classes take place on the pod, Mac PCs and I created one art piece then implemented it on a 3D printer that is there in the lab. Many prominent faculties also visit the college for the guest lecture on design & media and its importance in today's world.

    Although I could simply attend college in India, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to study abroad. I really like education in the U.S. This kind of education provided me a wider perspective on different aspects of invaluable skill sets, including the skills to communicate effectively and the capacity for lifelong learning. I chose Andrews University because of its focus on our views and interests. I applied for the university online through a common application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course requires a total Credit score of 129 - 130 approximately. Applied sciences of mathematics and physics are included in the curriculum. Flight, maintenance, weight, balance, and various maintenance problems that the aircraft maintenance technician could encounter are included.
