How was my experience at Lipscomb University
I had not at all planned for this college. I applied because I had a few senior friends from my high school who were studying here. I did not expect to hear back. But I did. And I do not regret this at all. So yeah, I heard about this from my seniors and applied online. The application cost was $30.
The course was designed to give us the freedom to follow our passion. My subjects included Human Anatomy and Physiology I, Human Anatomy and Physiology II, Virology, Cancer Biology and Histology. I was able to learn and take my passion to a new level with the help of this curriculum.
My overall SAT scores were 1196. My high school grades also helped me. I had undertaken the TOEFL exam as well and my 87 marks showed my language proficiency. Along with this, I was needed to submit my migration certificate and immunization form.
I paid $21000 for tuition and fees. While books and other necessities cost not more than $9000. I feel that I paid less for my course as other colleges charged a lot more. The college does provide many state and federal funded scholarships. You need to have a good GPA throughout your course to be eligible for that.
My stay there was at the on-campus hostel. Which was about $800 per month. I traveled to and from college hence $400 for that. Some of my friends who wanted to explore more took off-campus accommodation and suffered big time. Not only did they have to pay more, but take care of their food and all the responsibilities as well.
Most of the students from our batch had jobs from some notable labs and research centers. The average package was $45000. The highest package was around $70000 annually. I wanted to pursue higher education hence I did not attend the placement drive.
Imagine, a leadership program held for the students to make the most out of the opportunity. Signarama and Engage are some other events that I enjoyed.
Monthly Expense : $500 - $1500
