    UQ is a high ranking university in Australia where I always want to go. I choose UQ also because the application fee is not that expensive and it's quite easy to apply compared to American Universities. I transferred to UQ from my uni in China with a GPA of 3.5/4. Particularly, my aunt lives in Australia so I can visit her.
