How much is a wonderful experience at UofM?


"Omg...I will be kicked out from U of M...." (*Omg: Oh my goodness)

This morning, I found my friend posted the state above on Facebook.

Why did he thought that?
Because he couldn't pay tuition by the due date.

Being honest, I had an exactly same experience last year...

As same as many international students, tuition and living cost was one of the biggest concerns of mine before I came here.
When I was still in Japan, I had saved money for paying tuition by myself.
But it's not enough.

Are you wondering how I'm managing it...?

OK, I'll tell you the REAL stories!

How much the tuition?

First of all, I guess you must want to know how much the tuition is.

Actually, I cannot tell the exact price because it may be different depending of your program. You will know the price after you register for classes.

But I can guarantee the tuition for UofM is really reasonable comparing other top schools. (Please refer my former blog: Minnesota > New York?)

If you want to estimate your tuition before your registration, you can find some information from this link, or you can briefly calculate it through this link.

How do I manage paying tuition?

As I told you, my saving was not enough to pay the tuition.
Then, how do I keep paying it?
There are several way to reduce your tuition, and I'll introduce two of them.

1. Using financial aids
To get scholarship is a way to reduce your payment, but everyone cannot get it. However, even If you couldn't get any scholarship before you come here, you still can find some information of financial aid. ISSS is one of the departments that provides some financial aids, and also other departments or off-campus organizations may offer scholarships.
I recommend you to keep your eyes peeled for opportunities and to try!

2. Working on campus using your professional knowledge
This is definitely an advantage of grad students. Because the University of Minnesota is a HUGE research organization and because grad students have professional knowledge, most of them are qualified to work as teaching assistants or research assistants.
If you worked on campus by using your professional abilities, your tuition might be discounted. Including me, I know lots grad students who work and pay tuition by themselves.

Although I thought of giving up studying abroad many times because of my financial situation, now I'm having indeed precious experience at the University of Minnesota.

I deeply understand how you worried about the cost, but strongly suggest to find a way to overcome the concern.

Lastly, this is a picture of my friends' graduation ceremony last May.
I wish you stand there in the future :)

Feel free to ask further questions, and have wonderful everyday!!

Great blog Kyoko!

thanks very much,am so concerns about the tuitions fee.firstly can apply now for master degree now

Hi Olawunmi,
Thank you for your comment! I understand your feeling because I had same concern.
Yes, you can apply for a masters program now, and you need to show a financial certification to prove that you can pay tuition for the first year after you are accepted.

You actually allow it to be seem so easy together with your presentation but I've found this topic to become actually a thing that I think I would never understand.

You really make it seem very easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to become actually a thing that I believe I'd never understand.

I discovered your blog thanks to the International Students' section in the U of M website. I find it very interesting!
I'm going to quickly introduce myself. My name is Léo, I'm 17 and I live in France. I spent the whole last year living in Owatonna, MN (it's about 1 hour south from the U of M), at their High School. That was supposed to be my Junior Year but my french High School didn't give me credits for it so I'm doing my Junior Year all over again, in France. I am really interested in studying at the U of M, especially because I know they have one of the best engineering program in the US. I'm for now either interested in a Bachelor, or a Master, but my questions isn't about that at all.
I saw on their website that the cost for International Students, all included, was about $34,000, is that right? My parents' income is above average in France, however, French universities are not even close to be as expensive. I was wondering if the American government / the U of M / your country gave you any scolarships? And if yes, were they specifically made for International Students?
This would be my most important question as far as for now. I know what their requirements are for International Students (taking an English proficiency test, for example) and that's the reason why I'm starting to look at what I have to do before my Senior Year, knowing that I could do a lot during my Junior Year. I was also wondering if you had to take the SAT or ACT? It's something I could have done in the US last year, but didn't. I know that I could take it not very far from home in France though. I'm just asking because they say "Not required, but strongly recommended".
Thank you!

attention to detail

2 - a la carte

If time permits, you should wait after the majority of the guests in attendance, will be circulated to the menu for guests, and invited them to a la carte. Of course, as the official dinner, you will worry about budget problems, therefore, to control the budget, your most important thing is to do more homework before meals, select the appropriate grade dinner location is more important, so guests can also greatly appreciate your budget. Moreover, in general, if you come to pay, a la carte guests also not the nerve will allow you to decide. If your boss is also the feast, do not because of respect for him, or that his entertainment experience, catering to eat more, and let him / her to a la carte, unless he / she volunteered. Otherwise, he will not feel decent.

dinner if you are who you should know, you should not be too active in the a la carte, but to enable the owner to a la carte. If the other kind requirements, you can point a not too expensive, but not all the food taboos. Remember to consult the views of people about the table, especially to ask After ordering, you can consult,

when ordering, be sure to know what. A la carte, according to the following three rules

Another point to note is that a la carte dishes, the waiter should not ask the price, or the bargain, it will Let your company in front of customers is a little petty, but customers will feel uncomfortable.

with: a la carte Chinese food guide - three excellent four bogey

standard Chinese dinner meal, usually first on the cold, followed by stir-fried, then the main course, then on snacks and soup, eat a little if you feel tired, you can order some of the desserts, and finally the fruit plate. In ordering the program to take into account the various dishes.

priority dishes

one has distinctive Chinese dishes. Entertain foreign guests, when this one should pay more attention. Like deep-fried spring rolls, boiled Lantern, steamed son, lion head, kung pao chicken, etc., not food delicious, but because with distinct Chinese characteristics, so admired by many foreigners.

Second, there are local characteristics of the dishes. Such as steamed mutton in Xi'an, Hunan, Mao's home braised pork, braised lion head in Shanghai, Beijing, lamb, where the dinner guests outside, on these dishes, fresh seafood probably fits more than well received.

Third, the restaurant's specialties. Many restaurants have their own specialties. On a specialty of the restaurant, telling the owner's care and respect for those who were invited.

in arranging the menu, guests must also consider food taboos, in particular, to food taboos for the guest of honor's attention. These dietary taboos are four

1. Religious dietary restrictions, that can not be negligent. For example, Muslims generally do not eat pork, and do not drink. Hunxing domestic Buddhists eat food, it not only refers to meat, but also onions, garlic, leeks, mustard and other pungent food smells. Some believe in the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy in the diet is especially forbidden to eat beef, which points to serve Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan compatriots and overseas Chinese in particular should pay attention to when.

2. For health reasons, for some food, but also some taboos. For example, heart disease, cerebral vascular, vein sclerosis, hypertension and stroke sequelae were not suitable for eating dog meat, avoid eating lamb and turtle patients with hepatitis, gastroenteritis, stomach ulcer and other digestive diseases are also inappropriate to eat turtle, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, less chicken soup and so on.

3. Different regions, people's food preferences are often different. For this, to take into account when arranging the menu. For example, the Hunan provincial people generally like to eat spicy food, eat less sweets. Anglo-American countries, people usually do not eat pets, rare animals, animal offal, animal's head and claws. In addition, the dinner with foreign guests, try to be less rigid grazing dishes, foreigners will not bite in the meal in the mouth and then spit out the food, it also requires taking into account.

4. Some occupations, for some reason, in the dining area often have their own different special taboo. For example, the state civil servants in the performance of official duties are not allowed to an invitation to dinner, eating and drinking are not allowed in the official dinner time, not exceed the national standard meal, are not allowed to drink alcohol. Again, the driver shall not drink while working. If this point is ignored, the other party may also make mistakes.

3 - bite

Chinese people are generally very particular about food, but also very particular about eating phase. With more and more emphasis on workplace etiquette, business on the table to eat and eat with more attention. Following the lunch, for example, teach you how polite at the dinner table with instrument handy.

Chinese banquet meal at the beginning, the waiter brought the first of a wet towel is a towel, do not use it to wipe her face. On lobster, chicken, fruit, it will send a little water Meng, lemon slice or twist them floating rose petals, it is not drink, but hand-washing use. Hand, can turn his hands wet fingers, gently rinsed, and then use a small towel.

meal to be civil. Do not repeatedly advised of the foreign guests food, Chinese food can be introduced to each other's characteristics, eat eat by him. Some people like to persuade others, food, and even for each other and take their food. Foreign guests do not have this habit, if you are polite and again, chances are people will resent: If you wait for someone else to their own cloth dish, it had to Russia stomach.

guests seated, do not immediately hands-feeding. The owner should be greeted by the owner to indicate the beginning of a toast, the guests can begin; guests can not rush in front of the owner. Take their food to be civilized, and other dishes to be in front of their own, and then Dongkuaizi, do not rush in front next to him, one should not take their food too much. Slowly, this is not only conducive to digestion, but also on the table etiquette requirements. Must not be large mouths, wolf, so will leave the impression of greed. Do not picky eaters, do not just stare at you like Lay to eat, or hurried to favorite dishes piled up in your own plate. Action to elegant dining,Moncler Vest Men, sitting next to the folder Lay Do not touch, do not appropriated to the food tray table, not the soup spilled. Do not make unnecessary sounds, such as soup, when Do not eat the side, side and chat. Mouth of the bones and fish bones do not spit on the table, napkins are available hush, taken out on the dish with chopsticks. Out the food on the table, do not eat. Do not play with dishes during a meal, or with chopsticks straight people. Do not pull a hand to mouth disorder. When teeth with a toothpick, cover your mouth and the application of hand or napkin. Do not let dishes make a sound.

end of the meal, you can use napkins, paper napkin or a waiter brought a small towel wiped his mouth, but should not rub the head and neck, or chest; uncontrolled postprandial not burp or belch; not signal the end of the host, guests can not be left.

on toast

1, owner of King guest of honor.
2, Peiqia King guest of honor.
3, the guest of honor retaliate.
4, Peiqia mutual respect.

Remember: a stranger must not overwhelming and chaotic toast, that would be very rude, is very respected owner.

4 - pouring tea

knowledge mentioned here only company for customers to visit, the same applies to business table.

first tea to clean. The guests came in, let sit, back-up tea. Before tea, tea must take the clean, especially the long-unused tea set, it is inevitable dust, dirt, but also to carefully wash with water again. In tea, the best scalded with boiling water before pouring teapot, cup. In this way, pay attention to health, but also seems polite. If the cleaner is not clean either tea, wild tea to guests, it is impolite performance. People saw the teapot, cup stain on the trail of nausea, but also how you willing to drink the tea? Companies are now generally disposable cup,Montblanc Greta Garbo Pen, the tea cups before one-time pay attention to put the cup holder, so as not to heat hot water, so guests can Duanbei tea moment.

Secondly, tea should be adequate. Let me talk about tea, generally appropriate. Tea should not be too much, nor too little. Too much tea, tea flavor too thick; tea too, nothing out of the tea flavor. If customers take the initiative to introduce their favorite habit of drinking tea or weak tea, then by the mouth of the stomach to the guests a good tea. Besides tea, no matter how large cup small cup, are not down too full, too full of easy to overflow the table, stool, floor wet. Not careful, will burn themselves or guests of the hands and feet, so that two sides are very embarrassed. Of course, should not fall too low. If the tea had just cover bottom of the cup on the end to the guests, will make people think it is the bumbling, not sincerity in.

again, some tea to be successfully implemented. In accordance with the traditions and customs of our people, as long as hands are not disabled, the guests are served tea with both hands to the. But now, some young people do not know the rules, gave the guests tea with one hand trouble. Hands should be very careful tea, the cup of a cup ear, usually with one hand grasp the cup ear, boosting the bottom of the cup the other hand, the end of tea to the guests. Not filling the tea cup after cup ear the whole body hot, his hands not close, and some comrades just-do, with fingers pinch edges of the cup before the guests get aboard. This method, although some tea can prevent burn accidents happen, but it is unsightly, not enough health. Consider, for guests of the owner's finger marks lick the mouth, you feel better?

Tim tea. If your boss and clients need to add a cup of tea, you should obligatory to do so. You can indicate waiter Tim tea, or let the waiter leave the teapot on the table, by adding your own is better in person, it is not know what to say when the best way to cover up. Of course, the first to add tea when the bosses and clients add tea, and finally give yourself Tim.

5 - leave

general reception and tea for a long time, has about two hours. Perhaps visit a few times, some people recognize, you will soon want to leave. At this time, midway leave some skills, you can not understand.

common being conducted in a warm dinner time, because someone wants to leave, which leads to the result of crowd agents just quickly disappeared, the organizer anxious people really hopping. To avoid such unpleasant consequences, if you want to leave halfway, and do not talk to everyone in eleven circles say goodbye, so long as quietly and around two or three people say hello, and then you can leave.

picking up and leaving the reception site, be sure to invite you to the master note, apology, not swiftly vanished.

and greeted the owner, should go at once, do not pull the door to the master in the big talk incessantly. Because the other day to do a lot of site still has many of the guests waiting for him (her) to say hello, too much time on your master account will cause him (her) in front of other guests rude.

Some people attended the reception, tea party, when the half-way ready to leave, will be 11 asking everyone she knows to do a go. The results have been bustling scene, she encouraged such a sudden they finish at the advance. This downtown market thing, the hardest was the banquet master of understanding, a gentlemanly person, be sure not to commit this clock error.
