“I want to be a firefighter, construction worker, and professional race car driver when I grow up.” This was my proud childhood statement I would use when asked the question, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” This question in particular is one that will be asked awfully early in one’s childhood, as well as very late in a young adults final years before venturing out into the “real world”. Like many other young children, I grew up with the mindset of having a exciting, heroic, and lively job for when I got older. I dreamt of operating heavy construction machinery, saving families while extinguishing fires of a decaying building, and speeding past vibrant and heavily decalled race cars. However, as I grew older and gained more realistic
My College and Career goals include graduating college and getting a job. I wish to attend the University of Alabama. I plan to major in occupational therapy or speech therapy. After I graduate with my bachelor's degree I wish to get my master's degree. After I finish my schooling I want to receive a job that allows me to provide for my family. I wish to receive this job in my degree's field. After receiving this job I wish to improve to reach a leadership role.
Ever since I was a kid I have always thought about what college I was eventually going to go to. I made the decision in high school that I wanted to be a special education teacher, so I thought about some schools that had that teaching program. My number one school I wanted to attend that had the best teaching program was East Carolina University. Having ECU as my number one choice lead me to apply there. Weeks after I applied I got a letter telling me some sad news that I was not accepted. Since I applied to ECU and did not get in, I was now thinking about applying to other schools like Methodist University or maybe a community college.
I believe I could really be a good asset to your school. I can really be a good student if I really tried. Since my career really depends on college, I will try my absolute best to be the best I really can be. Getting into to College is a really big dream, and if I don’t do well in college, there goes my career choice. So choosing, me is a good idea.
When I was a highschool student in Vietnam, I thought I couldn't have a chance go to college until I come to america, I was so happy that I could have a chance to go to college. My parent always remind me of hard learning to get a bachelor or master degree , I don’t want to have a job that only enough money to pay the bills, and not worrying about them, and I can spend my money on whatever I want. My parents would have a better life if they had gone to college, but they didn’t have the opportunity like I do. I am blessed that I have a chance to come to america, a chance to go to college, It changes my life. I am the luckiest one in my family because I am the first one in my family to have a chance to go to collge, so I don't want to disappoint
He went to school the next day in style. At the end of the day there was a show. He revved my engine up and let the clutch go and a few scents later there was red and blue smoke pouring out of the wheel wheel. And went home when he came back to school all of his teachers told him that he was failing all of of his class. He said how is that pobel I just checked my grads last night and I had good grads I'm passing all of my class not falling them. They said well you're falling so we have to kick you out. He said you can not do that. they said yes we can. He said ok you will be hearing from my lawyer later today. So he went home.
I am writing you in response to a job posting looking for an Admissions Counselor. I became aware of the posting on the Clarion University website.
Leaving isn’t something new to me. I’ve done it before leaving areas that were home or felt like home for new challenges and adventures. It was necessary. For growth and progress. It can be expected by no one to fined every single thing they will need to be completely fulfilled in life in one solitary place. Even if it’s something small, like driving one city over for work it’s still leaving a bubble and branching out. Undergrad, Law School, Grad School – they’ve all been moments when I have left too find something new.
I’m no ordinary student who’s applying to college. I’m no ordinary teenager looking for to further my education at a postsecondary school. I’m no ordinary person with goals in life, whether big or small. Even my body is not ordinary; scoliosis and hydrocephalus accompanying me everywhere I go. I wasn’t born with intelligence. “He’ll have trouble learning.”, the doctors told my mom when they diagnosed me with hydrocephalus at just eight months of age. Therapy after therapy and now in my senior year of high school, here I am taking having taken a variety of AP courses ranging from AP Spanish Literature to AP Calculus and received dual enrollment credit from Laredo Community College. I am the New York born, Texas raised, New Jersey graduating student who will be the first of his family to go to school. I am no ordinary American, I cannot be when the color of my skin is not of the lightest complexity.
Coming into college, I personally had no clue what I was signing myself up for. I remember the first steps I took as I got out of my car the first day, thinking to myself “What in tarnation am I doing here?” I expected to get my education, obviously, but what does that mean, how does one go about adjusting to such a monumental change in their life. I realized I had to just start small, I knew I was in something called the Opportunity scholars program. I honestly thought wasn’t going to be very fun at first. Now that I actually know what it is, I feel honored and blessed to be apart of it as I’m pushed to become more than what I could’ve imagined for myself. I see myself wanting to be in leadership positions. I’ve already set goals to try and

My college-search journey so far has already been tiresome. I have recently, however, searched through a few college placement tests, specifically one from Barton College and another one from the University of Maryland University College. I personally think that I can handle the majority of basic college placement tests, based on my own research.
Brad Pitt once said, “You must lose everything in order to gain anything.” Stanly Early College was my dream when I was in the seventh grade. Though it was my dream, I didn’t know that going to it will make me lose aspects of my life. The journey coming and being here has changed me and made me realized what is more important. Being here has taken me on a different journey. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I applied for Stanly Early College. The future then was so vivid and still is. When I found out I got in there were mixed emotions. It was the first time I ever cried tears of joy. People tried to put me down and still do, but I want to prove them wrong. I want to say I can do it and there is nothing you can stop me. Being
A friend of mine mention to me that AAP offered free GRE courses for the summer. Although I had little to no understanding of graduate school, I was sure that the GRE was a part of it, therefore I made an appointment with an AAP graduate mentor. I must admit I felt a little embarrassed when he mentioned to me that that wasn’t one of the resources they offered, it hit me that I was so unprepared and although I was about to be a senior, I had never thought about what to do after UCLA. It was then that I began my research. As a member of Lambda Theta Alpha, I have created graduate brainstorming workshops in which my sisters and I have been able to search for programs that interest us and help one another narrow our interest. I have also had the
I would also like to mention that I applied to attend NYU in the Fall of 2016. But during the time admissions notified students of their acceptance I was studying abroad in China at Nanjing University for a month to perfect my mandarin that I have been learning for the past few semesters. Upon my return back to the United States I was told from an admissions advisor at NYU that they are sorry to inform me that they had to give my seat up to another student since I didn't answer to the acceptance notice in a timely manner. Due to me being out of the country I didn't have access to the internet or phone service therefore I wasn't able to respond. I was told that in that case nothing can be done and I would have to reapply to the school. Since
