    It is one of the top-ranking universities to study business and finance and as I was applying for masters of France, I applied to MIT along with 4-5 other universities (just to be safe). Getting accepted in such a college was not easy, I worked very hard to get in! The selection process is extremely competitive. I applied to the university through the online application portal, the application fee paid by me was $250.

    Fees :

    The charges for the 12-month program is different from the 18-month program, as I was pursuing the 18 -months program my annual fee for the program was around $1,12,000. For books and supplies, I had to pay around $3,000 and the computer charges were $2000. It is very expensive! Although the university offers several financial aids like Jim and Sara Anderson Fellowship, Linda Archer Cornfield Fellowship, and many more, not all students can manage to secure one.

    This was my dream college though I did not have the courage to apply to it then on my parent's motivation I decided to apply to MIT university as well as Harvard. The application charges here are around $150 per application and the process is completely online through the official website.

    Fees :

    The fee for the course here is $52,000 per year which includes everything, all the facilities related to the course. There is a fellowship called Jim and Sara Anderson Fellowship which I received and that helped with an amount of $20,000 per year. I had to submit the documents of my financial status and GPA of last semester here.

    It is a dream of every student to study at Sloan and what makes the experience even greater is that it is a school of MIT. After completing my graduation I knew that I will submit the application here regardless of whether I will be able to get admission here or not. The application fee was $150 and every process was online.

    Fees :

    This is a costly course without a doubt about that but still, I think it is absolutely value for money for the kind of facilities that students get. The yearly fee here is $136,000 and the fee has to be given every semester. The university has lots of opportunities for scholarships but in general, there are very few for the MBA course.

    The Sloan School of Management is under MIT university. That was enough reason for me to join the college if my application is at all selected. However, with very little hope I had filled up the application form and it cost around $150 through the online admission portal of the college.

    Fees :

    The cost of the program is very high, it's around $1,35,000 per year. The executive MBA course is less in comparison. No doubt that the college provides opportunities, infrastructures, exposure, and everything that a student needs. Scholarships and grants are also given to the students.

    Massachusetts Institute of Technology had been my dream school ever since I grew interested in the field of chemistry. In the last few months of high school, I applied to the bachelor's of science program in the field of biology and chemistry and having scored good grades helped the online admission process get easier. I paid an application fee of $75.

    Fees :

    The tuition that I paid was $28,000 (per unit charge being $550). Various scholarships were available for us about which we could obtain information from the admission office. Merit-based as well as need-based scholarship could be applied from during the time of admission.

    MIT is the dream of every child in their schooling period but some get a chance to be here and my dedication and hard work helped me a lot to be here. Infrastructure and faculty are also the main reason I have joined. There is no application fee for admission.

    Fees :

    Total fees are $73,000. But most students are not able to pay full fees and scholarships help them. The criteria of the scholarship are mostly based on your ACT and SAT scores. Scholarships make a large difference in the fees of students.$72000 is the fee without a scholarship but with a scholarship, it is just $23000. I have also awarded with scholarship and it helped me a lot.

    Being a part of MIT itself opens many doors of opportunities as it is one of the best schools for an engineering degree. I chose the university because of its rankings. I applied by creating a profile on the official website as it is the only way of applying for graduate programs at the university. An application fee of $75 was also paid by me at the time applying.

    Fees :

    I paid an annual cost for all graduate programs of around $53000. I did not get any scholarship or financial aid though. But there are numerous scholarships available for all students including the international ones.

    One of my friends recommended me this college. I applied and evidently was qualified. Studying at a place from where people like Virgilio Barco, Richard Feynman, and many others are passed out is a proud feeling. Besides this, the college ranks in the top 10 positions every year. These were some of the features of the university.

    Fees :

    Scholarships are provided in the college. Only meritorious students are eligible to get it. And I hope to get benefited from the same. The fee was approximately $50000 for the course. Other charges like books, transportation, application, and accommodation fee are excluded from the tuition fees.
