Why Did I Apply
I remember growing up, a lot of my friends had a “dream school” they wanted to go, but I didn’t have that. As I was applying to colleges during the fall of my senior year I never thought that DePaul would be the college I’d end up at. I’m halfway through my sophomore year and have realized that DePaul is perfect for me. This university fits everything I need and it turns I am going to my dream school.
Location: First of all DePaul has an amazing
location. Honestly, I found DePaul to be the prettiest
of the Chicago universities. Although
I’m from the suburbs and would visit the city almost every week for fun before my freshman
year, I never get tired of Chicago.
I love Chicago and couldn’t
see myself in a rural
area for school.
Chicago is full of culture,
opportunities, and lessons and it is true when everyone
says “the city is your campus.”
Fit: DePaul met my financial needs. Money is a very stressful thing and that played a large factor
for me when I was applying to colleges. I was lucky enough to qualify for some of the many DePaul
School: DePaul has a well-known business
school and knowing
I wanted to major in accounting made it easier
for me to see why DePaul was a good fit. DePaul
offers a lot of good networking opportunities since it is located
in and near the city.
I thought about
how being surrounded
by the fast pace lifestyle
of Chicago would help me prepare more for the future.
