I chose this college because of its convenience and excellence. My sister and two of my cousins attended DePaul and I knew a lot about the college before I even was enrolled. Another factor was the location because the campus is very close to home and I wanted to stay near my family but also be near the city and transportation.
There were not any specific requirements required for this program other than the standard university requirements. I took the ACT and received a 30 for my overall score. I decided to choose this program because I am good at writing and this will provide me with the courses and experience through internships that I need.
The tuition including room and board is 59,000. I received a Deans's scholarship for 22,000 each year and Parent PLUS loans for 22,000 each year. The criteria for the Dean's scholarship are academic excellence and for the loans, I need to maintain a GPA over 2.0. I also received direct subsidized and unsubsidized loans for $4000 and $2050.
