“The semester I am supposed to study is fully funded by the University of California. I had applied for the same a few months and after passing a rigorous selection process, I got selected under student exchange program,” Zaib added.

Zaib said that since he had an offer from the same university to pursue LLM, “So once I complete my bachelors in India, I will be returning back to America to accomplish my post graduation.”
