In his essay “Frank Bruni” which appear Rethinking College Admissions, where he was insistent that college admissions process should change, and this essay published in New York Times. The college admissions process look for many things that hard for the students to have. In sated of accepting the student how come from poor society and develop there knowledge so they can have better live, they accept the students who come from the best school. Moreover, they emphasize on the student who have high grade on standardized tests, the AP classes and extracurricular activities without looking for the students who cannot do this things. All this requirements are for pacific class of people who can have it, even for the sport scholarship they look for
I liked the questions she asked. Some of them were open ended so she could keep he student interested and involved. She asked the silent student what is his name. She asked a student how old they were and what they did for fun.
Feedback: Good job! Students sometimes wait through the first week to assess whether to stay in a class. Be sure to log into classes early and ask any questions you have so that you can be sure to spend your education dollars wisely
I saw the Coordinator for Transfer Student Success position on the University of Maryland Baltimore County website. As a former transfer student to UMBC, I understand the support and information needed to make this transition easier. During my first semester at UMBC, my Interdisciplinary Studies degree proposal was completed and accepted before the board the first time it was submitted. Due to a furlough the following year, some of the classes I needed to graduate where no longer offered and I made the decision to change my major. After graduation, I used the information and experiences I received to join Teach for America. During my final year in teaching, my students out performed the region and the district on a district mandated end-of-year
Today in class Melinda Laprade came to discuss how our resume should be, and how we should prepare for an interview. Melinda Laprade gave us some helpful insight on how we would go about getting a job and they tools we can use. She went over what to wear and what not to wear to an interview. Also, how you to uphold yourself. A helpful tip that I will be using is creating a mock interview with a friend before the interview. Another one is getting to know the company beforehand so that you can know what they are looking for. I really enjoyed her presentation and there was a lot I didn’t know that she cover. I am glad that she came.
The election night of 2000 was a pivotal moment in my life. I stayed up all night on November 7th, 2000, not because I was enthralled with watching Florida flip-flop between Gore and Bush, but because I had an IV in my arm which made it impossible to be comfortable. Earlier that evening, I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes, a disease affecting 1 of 800 people in America. This was an especially crucial time in my life, considering I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis—an autoimmune disease that attacks the GI track in 1 of 1400 Americans—the June before, and I had my Bar-Mitzvah in September. According to the Jewish religion, I had become an adult, and as such, I had decided to greet my new medical challenges with gusto, attempting
A critical moment during my undergraduate career is when I came to the realization that it is alright for me not to know what to do with my future. I realized that I was doing the right thing by furthering my education so that once I finally did know what career I wanted to pursue I would then have a degree to help me stand out. Once more, Dr. Reed convincing me to pursue a degree in Communication is one of the best pieces of advice I acquired during my undergraduate career, if not ever. I most likely would not have the confidence I currently have in obtaining a degree that I have no idea what I am going to with once I graduate.
My mom signed me up for the community library when I just turned 6 years old. Even if I did not know how to properly read at the time, I had to go there every afternoon to keep myself busy as an only child. Being opened to books at such an early clearly has had a major impact on my life and personality. From the local tales of my beloved Senegalese society to the deep and sophisticated French literature, I have traveled through cultures and generations. Whether it is Emile Zola’s collection of novels or Albert Camus’s philosophical texts, these books raised me and taught me about life, love, and resilience. As times went by, reading was no more a regular pastime but a detrimental part of my existence. The lessons and morality I gained from each story always pushed me to challenge the status quo, to be curious, to be adventurous but most importantly to be a problem solver.
Ever since my brother came back home from Illinois State University with many positive comments about the college I have wanted to go there. He told me about all the different things one can do there, and how easy it was to make friends. He also talked about how great all his professors were. I was instantly intrigued by all the university has to offer in activities and academics.
I’ve always been the type of person to always plan ahead, to always assess each defining factor, and to always prepare myself for whatever life throws at me. As I type this, I look back and evaluate as well as reflect upon the very occurrences that have led me to where I am today: my family-my parents in particular, as they never made it through to college-so this process is new to everyone within my household, my own failures and successes, my community, and my education have all been vast influences on my character, especially my growth as a young adult. Recently, I’ve been pondering as to what will define me as an individual; what will have the greatest impact on me that will distinguish me from others, and more importantly what will help me apprehend my own goals? Everyone can say that they’re lives being the way they were guided them to the path they ended up on, and I know that is true too, but I feel there’s something more prominent as to why a person chooses to pursue a particular goal, career, or other dealings. This realization arose from my participation in the Regional Program for Excellence, a program that provides students with internships in fields they’re inquiring in before entering college, and my inquisitions regarding the significance as well as the impact on my rapidly changing life.
If someone asked me where I am going to be in ten years, this would be my answer. I will have a great, high-paying job, and beautiful wife and family, and a nice sports car parked in front of my lovely house. When I look into the future, I see myself being successful and happy. Even though I always pictured myself this way, I never worried too much about how I would get there. I feel the Suffolk University can lay the groundwork for making these dreams into reality.
What you see is not always what it is. We learn to perceive what we're looking at, and we get used to how things are supposed to be. I was always fascinated by the illusion pictures that at first glance is strikingly simple to guess what it is, if you give more attention to detail you see another picture in it. What inspired me the most and made me a curious person was how missing one detail can change the whole outlook of the picture – just as missing one aspect from patient’s evaluation can lead to a wrong diagnosis. This taught me the importance of thoroughness in doing anything in my life. My meticulous nature has been an incredible driving force behind who I am
She provided a preview statement to the audience with what she was going to talk about. I liked how she provided to the audience what they will know after the speech was completed. The preview statement explained to the audience what they will learn. “You will be able to identify a scene kid, how to become one, the types of clothes they wear and what they like to do.”
As students begin their senior year of high school they are constantly bombarded with questions about their plans for their next years in the real world. We seniors often find this decision challenging as we compare the different costs and programs each college or university can offer us. Not only do we have to choose from the thousands of universities across the country, but as well as the different campuses each college may provide. Before my senior year I had little knowledge when it came to colleges. However, through my own research to find out what college may be the best fit for me I have come a long way and have been able to narrow my search down. I have learned that for many big name schools it is common for them to have a main campus
