Dear Roshan, I have settled in the University of Leicester. The city of Leicester is beautiful and I have already made many friends from the university. It was difficult choosing the UK over the US, but I am grateful I got accepted to the University of Leicester. Thank you for helping me during the tough process of applying to the universities.
