“I chose to apply to Illinois Tech because of its ranking as a top school for return on investment, but I wasn’t sure I would even be able to afford that initial investment because my mom is a small-town teacher and my dad is a manual laborer. I was lucky enough that Illinois Tech noticed my potential and [awarded] me with a scholarship. ”
