    Kellogg School of Management was a wiser choice for me as I wanted to complete my masters in MBA in a short period. I was just paid $250 for the application form. And filled the required college details in the form which was available on the official website and got admission to this college.

    Fees :

    The annual fee cost me and my parents around $100000. And sadly the scholarship was available only for the US-based students, not the international students. But anyone interested in this program can take the loan from their native country.

    I wanted to complete my masters in MBA from an outside university. And I came across the Kellogg School of Management in the USA. I was driven by the facilities available at this university. But I still applied to two universities as I didn't want to take a chance. I filled the application for which cost me $250. And luckily got selected after doing fulfilling all the requirements.

    Fees :

    The annual fee of this course was somewhere around $85000. There is no special international student scholarship from this university. But the university provides the in campus merit scholarship. For the financial aid of the weaker section. But it mostly for the US-based students, not the international students.

    While going through different options of colleges to go for my masters, I found this course where I was able to complete the course in a year and that is of great benefit because it will save my money and time as well. This is the reason why I was motivated to join the college and that is why filled the application form for $250 through the online portal.

    Fees :

    Being a one year course is priced quite higher than in other courses. The course tuition fee here is $100,000 per year. Moreover, there were expenses in terms of books and study materials as well. I have received the Founders Scholarship worth $13,000 annually

    My school counselor suggested Northwestern University as she believed this college will fit me perfectly. And that being the reason I went through the course provided and everything else. I loved the university so much that I immediately applied for it after my high school exams and I filled a common application and paid an application fee of $75.

    Fees :

    The tuition that I pay is $56,000 along with fees of $500 that cover health, associated student government fees and athletic fees. Various scholarships and financial aids are available for us about which we could enquire during the time of admission.

    It was the time when I had completed my schooling. My family decided to reallocate to the US because my father had an official transfer and has to work on a project for 5 years. We shifted to his official residence. I have to pursue my further studies so I applied to 3 universities near my residence. Luckily I got selected in all of them. I choose Northwestern University because it was the nearest. I have paid $75 for the online application process.

    Fees :

    The most I can remember is, I have paid somewhere around $74000 as the tuition fee.

    The location, academics, intersectionality, and extra curriculars, elite and competitive yet humble, first gen and low income resources, mental health advocacy, great tour, beautiful campus. All of these factored into my decision to go

    Fees :

    I have a full scholarship so I'm not exactly sure but a lot of people do complain about how expensive the school is. I know financial aid is very generous, however, and it does help a lot of people.

    First, I'm a Questbridge Scholar who matched with Northwestern, so I was required to go here by contract. I ranked it because I thought it offered so many different opportunities, because of its location, emphasis on not limiting yourself to one area of study, etc. People at Northwestern were kinder and so willing to help me out/answer any questions during my tour, which made me feel right at home.

    Fees :

    Tuition, room, board, and other fees total to about $68,000 per year. Tuition makes up most of the cost of attending, but room and board are also substantial. All students are required to live on campus for at least 2 years.
