You cannot ignore the importance of admission essay. Admission essays are your ticket to get the admission in a college, and start the program of your choice. You should have strong critical thinking skills to come up with a two-fisted admission essay. Here are three common mistakes that students commit while writing an essay to get admission in a college.
Spending time in the classroom is one thing. Learning at home is another. Children often face a pile of assignments but feel too tired after spending half of their day at school, especially when they’re involved in extracurricular activities. This means that even if the school material they have is well-designed and not difficult to grasp, your little one might still be struggling with it. If you want to assist them but don’t know how, you’re at the right place. Listed below are some of the best ways to help your child when they’re struggling with their school material.
In the not so subtle hierarchies that exist in school, there are a series of practices that those at the top of the ladder subject to those at the bottom. These are compounded at boarding school, where the students who are left largely to themselves, forge their own ritualistic privileges and are reinforced by the very system in which they live. At my boarding school, “strapping” was one such practice.
Mere seconds ago had I pulled up the blank Vocal template, but now—it seems like now has always been—I stare hypnotically at my computer screen, that white glow attracting my eyes in the midst of this naturally lit, near-nightfall room. My gaze hangs, loosely tethered to this page of potential, this "could be," this "not yet," until some unknown force inside of me urges my eyes to focus. I blink rapidly, a few times in succession, and shake my head. I had in mind to write something instructive and encouraging about grad school. Perhaps a "you can do it," or a "at least just try," but now all I can think about is "blank page," which leads to "unwritten thesis," which transforms into "failure."
When I applied for university, it was to engineering programs. I knew my major going in, and that was electrical engineering. It made perfect sense to me at the time—I dedicated all of high school to robotics, and there was nothing in the world I loved more than making things. But there was another thing motivating me, and it took me a lot of soul searching to realize what that was: I went into electrical engineering because it was hard.
At this point in the school year, my fellow engineering students (or maybe not engineering—maybe students just trying to learn how I study) are probably struggling, or trying to get inspired to get through midterms or finals. Let me start off my saying that I am in my third year of undergrad, in Electrical and Computer Engineering. There are probably a maximum of five females in my class (including myself) at this point in my course. This is all just my experience, especially since the school I attend is very small and very male-dominated—not just in the engineering department. One of the first classes I attended, I was pointed out by male teacher who called me a "little girl," and proceeded to assume my ethnicity and speak to me in Spanish (when I am Filipina, and can't speak Spanish worth anything). He continued to do that for the rest of the year, and I was unable to drop the course as all classes were full. It was a deeply disturbing experience for me to sit through a class where the guys in my class would join in and tease me, calling me, "little girl." At my school, I had to earn the respect of my peers and teachers, in order for me to not get teased or called out in such a manner that would never happen to my male counterparts. I was once a straight A student, and now I was struggling to get a B. My sophomore year, I had to try my hardest in everything, and get the best grades in order for people to stop thinking of me as the person that was constantly struggling in class to actually wanting to be a part of my study group. Here are a few things that I did to get my grades together, and start studying more efficiently.
I had always thought my life would be this smooth, linear path that would have one clear outcome. You know, go to college, graduate, get a job in my field, have a stable income, move out of my parents’ house, get married, and who knows maybe even start a family?
Many people worry about paying off their student loans. In fact, it has been estimated that more than 40 million people have unpaid student loans in the United States. About 5.6 million of them owe more than $50,000.
