Major I'm Interested In

The major that I am interested in at UConn is the Individualized Major. I chose this major because I always thought that the idea of making your own major to focus on was really cool. To view the plan of study, you can click here.

Student Organizations

A student organization that I would like to join is the Engineering Ambassadors. I am also interested into joining the Computer Science Club located in the Stamford Campus.

Pros and Cons

A fortunate pro for Connecticut residents is that the price is greatly reduced from the out-of-state tuition fees. A con is that the acceptance rate is greatly reduced when your below a 3.0 GPA.

My Thoughts

The University of Connecticut was one of my favorite schools in my book because it always had that husky logo and the fact that it was in Connecticut is what also attracted me. The older I was getting, the more I kept having a passion for the school. Although, my monety is tight and my GPA is somewhat low, I have a very low chance on getting accepted. After researching and really learning more about the university, the more linear I was onto even thinking about going to college because they are expencive. Although it is worth it and it would pay it's self off in the future, it's just the fact that the money is tight now and probably get worse in the future.
