High School Research Paper

This topic is not an unusual topic. In fact, this is a topic that will help me decide on what college I will go to and attend in my future. My topic is The Citadel military College of the South or its only other competitor Norwich University. It does not necessarily matter where I attend school because no matter where I go I will be enrolled in the ROTC program at either school. In this research paper the items that I will be talking about are things that I have learned from either being talked to about or that I have read online about the colleges. These items will include the cost of each school, strictness, the living conditions, and the mechanical engineering program of each school.
The cost of both of these schools is something I know just enough about to tell you what I know. When I talked to a cadet from Norwich University last week at Hargrave Military Academy I asked him what the cost was like and how expensive it is per year. He said it was about $34,000 for board and room but in the end of all the payments it ended up to be about $57,000. At The Citadel the estimated cost is about $30,000 for room and board. In the end the cost for The Citadel is about $50,000 which is about $7,000 less than Norwich University total cost

It is not like Hargrave where each company has its own barracks. At Norwich University and The Citadel everyone is mixed with different companies or platoons. I know that each room at Norwich has two beds, two desks, and two closets, just like Hargrave. At The Citadel there is more than 4 battalions on campus. Each battalion has 3 companies this means that there is a lot of cadets in each barracks. This is the same at Norwich University but they are more compact because they are also a private regular college where as The Citadel is just strictly a Military

    The difference is that they were given opportunities to study abroad in America from their home country of Malaysia. Their government paid for a majority of their expenses, while they performed work-study programs in their separate schools. Neither of them knew what the FAFSA form was, how to apply to national scholarships in America, or what the Common Application interface looked like by the time I asked in my second year in high school. It was websites and online forums, such as The Prospect, that slowly began educating my parents and myself on the college scene. Coupled with a few seminars to educate themselves on the factors going into attending a university as an American citizen, my parents and I scoped blogs for as much information on college life—academically and emotionally (Where do I want to go?…
