Michigan Technological University Reviews
Financing was my only obstacle. I had the grades, extracurricular activities, sports but not the money to get there. Niche and several other scholarships have given me hope that I might eventually end up there.
Michigan tech has been helpful with all the opportunities they have provided. To sum it all up, I'm happy I got the chance.
