I thought I was lucky because I knew people from my old high school, though I have realized it does not matter who you know before attending college, because you will meet other people as well that will become your friends.
Furthermore, I expect myself to stay motivated on studying throughout the semester. In no doubt, there will be a lot of demands such as assignments, quizzes and of course, final exams. My mind sometimes will wander off which costs me to lose focus on whatever I am doing, therefore I hope I can stay focus so that I will not have to pull so many all-nighters later. At this point in my life, it is crucial that I must concentrate and stay focused.
Except, in reality, you have literally no time for anything besides maybe two of the clubs on campus. However, I know there are some residence halls on campus with well over twice the number of floors my dorm has so I get that the struggle can be real.
They come from families that are well off, successful parents. Other students just want to keep their social class, coming from a well off family; they themselves also want to be set for their futures. The chapter book that relates to this article, states that academic achievement varies by social class.
College is what you make of it. Get involved in clubs and organizations, strike up conversations in your classes or your dorm to meet new people. Create a balance between your academics and your social life. Nobody is going to hold your hand and make you get involved or make you talk to strangers.
You have to learn to be comfortable, yet strong enough to say I have to do this to better myself. In fact, it was this continued fascination for hands-on science that brought me years later to the sauna that is the University of Alabama in mid-June. Participating in the Student Science Training Program and working in their lab made me feel like a kid in a candy store. Just the thought of participating in a project at this level of scientific rigor made me forget that this was supposed to be my summer break and I spent the first day eagerly examining every piece of equipment.
Even at first, when the whole research group sat there doing rote calculations and others felt like they were staring down the barrel of defeated purpose, I remained enthusiastic. Time and time again I reminded myself of that famous phrase "great effort leads to great rewards," and sure enough, soon my aspirations began to be met. This shift in attitude also coincided with a shift in location: from the computer desk to the laser lab.
It was finally time to get my hands dirty. Now things began to get really interesting. During the experimentation phase of the project, I spent the majority of my waking hours in the lab — and I enjoyed every minute of it. From debriefing with my coordinator in the morning to checking and rechecking results well into the afternoon, I was on cloud nine all day, every day. I even loved the electric feeling of anxiety as I waited for the results.
Most of all, though, I loved the pursuit of science itself. Before I knew it, I was well into the seventh week and had completed my first long-term research experiment. In the end, although the days were long and hard, my work that summer filled me with pride. That pride has confirmed and reinvigorated my love for science.
I felt more alive, more engaged, in that lab than I have anywhere else, and I am committed to returning. I have always dreamed of science but since that summer, since my experiment, I have dreamed only of the future.
To me, medical science is the future and through it I seek another, permanent, opportunity to follow my passion. After all, to follow your passion is, literally, a dream come true. In addition to its use of clear, demonstrative language, there is one thing that makes this an effective essay: focus.
Indeed, notice that, although the question is broad, the answer is narrow.
You cannot study in your dorm room — it is impossible. Charlie: I suggested getting as immersed in your dorm life as possible. Plus, meeting face-to-face will give you the opportunity to provide some organized information about yourself that will help your writer compose a strong letter. Chloe Z: Tour all of the college you apply to or at least get into. They, like me, are there because State University respects the value of diversity. Indeed, having the intellectual keenness to absorb every ounce of knowledge presented through my time in the IB program, I know that I can contribute to State University as it continues to cultivate a scholarly climate that encourages intellectual curiosity.
Learning the complex dynamics between electromagnetic induction and optics in an attempt to solve one of the holy grails of physics, gravitational-waves, I could not have been more pleased. I thought I was lucky because I knew people from my old high school, though I have realized it does not matter who you know before attending college, because you will meet other people as well that will become your friends. Sam: It depends on the class. The commitment to play for your college involves countless hours of practice, conditioning, meetings and travel. You have to learn to be comfortable, yet strong enough to say I have to do this to better myself. During my tour of duty, I witnessed several shipmates suffer from various mental aliments.
Kelly: I always studied in my room in high school. Except, in reality, you have literally no time for anything besides maybe two of the clubs on campus.
Say thanks. The interest in serving and understanding people has never changed, yet I realized I could make a greater difference doing something for which I have a deeper passion, political science. I thrive on difficult tasks as I enjoy systematically developing solutions to problems. By directly identifying the specific aspects of the university that are attractive to the writer, the writer is able to clearly and effectively show not only his commitment to his studies but — perhaps more importantly — the level of thought he put into his decision to apply. At this point in my life, it is crucial that I must concentrate and stay focused. To me, science projects were a special joy that only grew with time.
The experience of college changes a lot of students, sometime for the better, others for the worse.
Justin: The quarter system is only ten weeks each quarter, and things move way quicker. I like it because I soak in the information more by writing it down. Thirdly, my next expectation would be to meet new people and to make new riends. Moving from high school to college may be an exciting transition, but it is also a very difficult one. From attending S.
Rana: Choose what makes you most comfortable.
