    Default Describe an interesting experience you have had during your college admissions search

    Please help me check this essay. Thanks.
    While I struggle to find American Universities, I am really stressful because I do not know where to start. Over 1000 schools, it is not easy to find a suitable school for my choice when the final exams come nearer and that make me really worried. However, I decide to star the search for American Universities with high determination.
    At the moment now, I am studying in a high school in Wellington, New Zealand. The environment at my school is very good for me to practice English and improve my communication skills. In the morning after finishing the trial exam, I surf the Internet and searching vietbroader.org. This is the website that Vietnamese students who studied abroad in USA created to help younger students gain more knowledge about studying in USA. Moreover, I also receive some useful documents that my sister had sent to me from Vietnam.
    I deliberately rummage the documents of American Universities such as: Williams College, Truman State University, and so on. I nearly fall in the chaos of ideas. However, I ask me some questions: What is the real problem? What do I need to do to solve this problem? When I firstly come to Wellington College, I choose Accounting and Economics. These subjects are very different from Viet Nam. In New Zealand, I just study six subjects but in Viet Nam, I need to study thirteen subjects, which is very stressful. After some few months, I feel that Accounting and Economics is interesting even though there are some difficult words, difficult type of analyze the numbers and transactions in company that I need to memorize. Therefore, I choose Finance, which is my major in university. Then I look at the website, I try to find out which school that have good education in Finance. Besides, I look carefully the norm and the number of students in each of universities. The most difficult concern is to find the school fee. School fee in US universities is very expensive for international students like us so I find schools that give a good amount of scholarships. Truman State University is good because they have not only the school fee is just 25000 USD for a year but also free application fee and that is very appropriate for our financial circumstances.
    The TOEFL ibt and SAT score are also austere selections. I search all of the schools and just Truman gives suitable rate for me: the TOEFL score is just above 79. Some of universities that I know send the request letter to me and that help me understand more clearly about that universities. Truman State University is chosen to be one of the top public universities in west central America. At approximately 85 % of international students receive scholarships from Truman University, which make me feel very exciting because scholarships are also important part for me to continue my study in the future. Actually, at the first time, I feel very tired because of these information from universities but when I concentrate and prevent all obstacles around me, I can control the search and finish it in a short time. I know that, I need to remember anything that I have found in the Internet and on the documents and that will help me very much to succeed the application process well. At the moment now, I only choose four schools and Truman State University is in my first choice, Early Decision.
