Admission to a university in the United States is a fairly complex issue. It all depends on where exactly you want to go and who to study. If you plan to study in the USA immediately after graduation from school, then you need to start preparing for admission in the early fall of your graduation class. This can be done both independently and with the help of an agency. My family and I used the help of the educational agency EduSteps, and it helped us tremendously and facilitated the process.

The difficulty lies in the fact that in the United States there is no single system of requirements for applicants. Each university has its own conditions, which differ depending on the faculty. At this stage, it is better to seek help from a consultant, or be patient and find out everything directly from the university.

I am studying in Orlando, Florida, at the University of Central Florida with a degree in Hospitality Management (hotel and restaurant business). The university is divided into colleges by department, and I study at Rosen College of Hospitality Management, which this year was recognized as the best college in the world for this specialty. By the way, this is what was the main factor in choosing a university – rankings in the world and the United States in the chosen specialty. First, I decided on my direction, and then, together with my parents and EduSteps, I sorted out the lists of different universities.

I chose this faculty because I understood that I like working with people. I was in the Senate and school president in high school, and in general I am a sociable person. In addition, I started watching various documentaries and shows about hotels and the service industry, and I decided that it was very interesting.
