    Though this is an art school yet I was interested in its CS course as it includes a bachelor of art degree as well. It is more like a dual degree and for this course, I thought of making my application for a fee of $25 through the admission page on the official website.

    Fees :

    As it is a dual degree program the tuition fee is higher than normal and ordinary courses. The tuition fee for the program is $55,000 per year. Numerous scholarships are available for international students and the applicants are required to apply for any of the scholarships they are eligible for.

    From my bachelor years, I had an interest in data science and machine learning and learned a lot about it. I was very much attracted to the STEM courses that the college had to offer especially the computer vision degree and so I filled the application form of $75 through the common portal for application.

    Fees :

    The tuition fee for the Computer Vision course is $48,000 while for any other STEM course the fee is less than $30,000 per year. Also, the university fully functional systems where computer vision courses can be run and it has an additional fee of $1000 per year.

    I went to visit the university with one of my cousins who studied there. I was attracted to the infrastructure and the facilities offered by the university. After completing my bachelor's, I applied immediately to the university via the online common app by paying an application fee of $75.

    Fees :

    I am paying $60000 towards the tuition and fee, $2500 for the books and supplies, and another $2500 for daily needs.

    I wanted to pursue master's in computer science and chose Carnegie Mellon as it had one of the best reputed master's programs in the field of computer science. My strong mathematics and analytic skills helped me to get into the program easily. I applied into the university through the official website by paying an application fee of $75.

    Fees :

    The tuition fee for the master's program costs around $49000 per academic year. However, the good thing is the graduate programs offer plenty of fellowship opportunities like research fellowships, project fellowships, internships and a lot more. I was offered a research fellowship during admission and got a relaxation of $2000. However, there are plenty of other expenses that I need to bear like house rent, books and supplies, insurance and so on.

    This college has a superior science program and a wonderful location. The faculty are also what make the school such a wonderful place to be. The campus life was just what I was looking for when I visited the school.

    Fees :

    Although the price tag for going there was not light, it was definitely still worth it. We had to also pay for housing and meal plans the first year. There were academic and other student activity fees that were added on.
