    Columbia College Chicago vs Ohio University

    Hi all, I'm considering both these universities mostly because of the financial aid/scholarships they've offered.

A bit bothered that, as an international student, they ask me to pay for an equivalency evaluation of my BA before knowing whether I am accepted or not into the program. I think it is fairly unfair.
