Tell us about a time when you had to choose between two options, and you picked the unpopular choice.
When my dad finally agreed to let me come to the US, i started my application to University of South Florida. It was either USF or HCC. I realized that applying to USF would take longer time than applying to HCC, so i decided to choose HCC. Dont get me wrong, HCC is a great school but its a community college, which is not a bad thing. However, as an international student, you only get a visa to stay for the length of your study. Since i applied to HCC, that was 2 years for me.
So because i went with the unpopular choice (unpopular with international students), i would have to renew my visa after next year. However, apart from the visa thing, i’m so glad i chose HCC. I’m doing very well there and i love it. I dont think i would have loved USF as much. Anyways, the good thing is that i have good grades, so i can transfer after next year to the school i want.
I’m very satisfied with the unpopular choice i made.
