It was a very important decision to choose a college amongmany colleges, because with that my future was involved . Choosing collegewas a very difficult process. On the other hand, even though I was acceptedin different good colleges, I had to enroll in one college. So I did notwant to change my college in the middle of my education.
I could choose toattend a privet college, a University, a community college. I also neededto consider cost, location, convenience of class times, and program eachcollege offered. The first thing I took into consideration when choosing acollege was location and cost. I wanted to attend a college intentionallygood location because I did not have private transportation.
So I was goingto use only public transportation. Cost was also very important in makingmy decision. I needed to be able to afford my college tuition. I started myprocess from my brother who is studying in Queens College in computerscience.Order now
One day I went Queens College admission office with him and Iacknowledged about CUNY admission process. It was very helpful for me. Inthe mean time I was educated about admission process and cost about all ofthe Private colleges and lot Institutions. Unfortunately most colleges andInstitutions were high tuition and few of them did not match my admissioncriteria. At last I tried SUNY I was faced program selection problem andfinally I was not accepted one of my chosen program.
Only left CUNY on mylist of college within my location and price range, I had to go one of thecolleges of CUNY. So my first choices was of CUNY’s City college, HunterCollege, City Tech, Queens College, Baruch College. My next step in choosing which college I was going to attendand to find out what were the pre- requisites of the colleges. Mostcolleges required passing a series of placements test and most of the CUNYcolleges needed certain grade point average, particularly different programhas a different requirements.
My process was little bit different because Ihad completed School and High School and Graduation (two years) fromabroad. CUNY had a very lengthy process for evaluation. I fallowed allrules to get credit and I was trying to get credit from my Graduationcertificate. But it was not accepted. I mean my country’s degree had notbeen accepted by the CUNY. Besides I had submitted my whole documentincluding my graduation certificate to UAPC for my desired program.
I wasnot accepted where I had completed my education, so I needed to start frombeginning, which means from college in here. I had science background frommy high school which was encouraged me to choose science program. At thispoint my desire for a degree came to forefront once again. There was nodebate in my mind about whether or not I wanted to attend college to obtaina degree.
Finally I was careful to take the programs and scheduleeach college offered. Scheduling was as important as tuition and pre-requisite. I wanted to meet the requirements for my program classes whichwould fit for my work schedule. Conveniently scheduled classes were onesignificant advantage to set an Institution. I also wanted to earn mydegree as fast as possible. I found most of the CUNY colleges scheduleswere the same format, but few of them were different.
It was a very hardmoment when I was trying to keep my work on the other side I wanted tocontinue my education. In the mean time, CUNY sent an acceptance letter forchosen program and I was also selected my second chosen college accordinglyabove mentioned. Unfortunately, I did not get any convenient scheduleclasses. I could not accept it.
Then I went to City Tech. and wasdesperately looking for my convenience of my class time which would fit formy work. They gave me convenient classes which did not interfere with mywork schedule. This was exactly what I was looking for; I had found mycollege for me. My process of investigation resulted in my selection of the chosenTCB program. This helped me to choose the right college through the processI did.
With all the decision and detail, I felt good. It was extremelyflexible moment when I admitted my one college. I was interested in price,good location and I am very happy with my decision.
