Xiaowei Zhou, 2013 - My name is Xiaowei and I am from Chongqing, China. After graduating, I will pursue my Master of Science in Accounting at graduate school. So far, I have been admitted to the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), North Dakota State University (NDSU), and University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).  I planned to continue my graduate study at UIC. I believe the education in UMC and my advisor’s and instructors’ references played an important role through my application process. I do really appreciate all the support and education I received from University of Minnesota Crookston.
