To get into physical therapy school, I will have to work extremely hard every semester and make the best possible grades I can. I have already begun this process by studying and making good grades, and by spending my limited free time interning with physical therapists. I will have to miss several social events for studying and miss vacations for the summers I am interning, but this will all be worth it in the end when I get to
What colleges don’t understand is that their expensive tuition does not only affect your pocket, but also your overall performance in school. Conclusions: Colleges need to be considerate of the fact that there are already a lot of stress that we as students have to deal with. College is no longer a place where 18 year old students that are fresh out of high school attend. It is a place where many students are mothers to a child or children for that matter, who has a full time job while still trying to get their degree. I would really like to educate my peers on this matter of the rise of college education, therefore, I am asking that you approve my topic so that my peers can better become aware of this
As a young adult, I get asked this question quite often, “why is your college education so important to you?”. Throughout the years I have explained it differently each time as I have matured as an adult. There are probably a million reasons why college education is imperative, but I will narrow it down to the top three most important reasons why college is so important to me. The number one reason my college education is so necessary to me is because I am blessed with the opportunity to be a role model for my child. Another reason why college education is important to me is because it opens a whole new world of opportunities and experiences in life, I want to leave myself with many options when it comes to life choices.
All these people have changed me for the better and will help me to be successful in college and beyond. High school has challenged me beyond belief. My counselor would say I’m headstrong, as I often demanded to take classes early and even skip some courses. He had faith in my abilities, and believed that I would be successful in whatever I do. Junior year I was supposed to take honors pre-calculus, but confident in my skills I asked to jump straight into AP calculus.
Grades may seem like a minor detail but when it comes to applying, it’s what matters the most. Graduating from high school is a really big deal and it’s time for me to start paying attention to my education instead of worrying about my friends because chances are that they won’t be by my side once I leave go to college. Like most teachers would say, “Knowledge is the key to
As an upcoming freshman in college I have realized many things looking back at my high school career, and home life outside of school. I use to wish for time to speed up so I could hurry and become my own person, a young adult and now I will truly miss it but I know my time was well spent because I used it wisely by partaking in opportunities to better myself, and spending my time wisely In and outside of school. I can truly say I tried all throughout school to find new ways to get involved with my school, community, and people around me. But I really would have to give all of my success up to this point to my mother, from being the vice president of drama club up to getting getting my part time job to which I have been committed to for almost
When it was time to apply for college, my parents agreed it would be a waste to let all my hard work go to waste so I applied to nursing school and took out a ridiculous amount of student loans. My parents worked hard to get where they are today and they encourage my brother and I to do more than they ever could. My brother has also started attending Gonzaga and they are extremely proud Zag parents.
Going back to college demonstrates several things. First, it impresses upon my children the importance of a college education and how the possibilities multiple by earning a degree. We always tell our kids anything worth having is worth the hard work and sacrifice. My family has already experienced the sacrifice because we spend less time together, I’m less accessible, and doing things without me is more frequent. Secondly, it makes them realize making such important decisions should be done carefully and thoughtfully taking the family into consideration.
However, since I could not attend school full time this would not be impossible for me. Although, this is a marvelous opportunity, this restriction that come with this scholarship would made it hard for me to benefit from it since I must work. In (“nytimes.com”) it is stated that To qualify, students must attend school full time and be on track to graduate within two or four years, depending on the degree they are seeking. But low- income students often must interrupt their studies to work. At the state’s community colleges, more than 90 percent of students would not qualify for free tuition based on those requirements.
Because, physical therapists must go to undergraduate and graduate school, I will need to attend college to achieve my dream. College will ensure I have a successful future helping others maintain the ability to play sports and stay active. Furthermore, the educational opportunities of college are immeasurable. College is extremely expensive and I cannot afford the rising costs. This scholarship would offset many of the expenses accrued in college and would allow me the opportunity to focus on my education not my financial
The important information that all college students and families should know is how much will the education cost and will they be able to repay the loans after graduation. “Perhaps the most important mathematic exercise your child will ever have to do—and the most widely neglected—is figure out how much it will cost to pay back her student loans” (Bodnar, 288). Knowing the total amount of your education and how much the monthly loan payment will be after graduation will before entering college is very important and should be considered before entering your chosen university. This topic is important because many college graduates have a hard time finding jobs where they can earn enough money to pay back their loans and still have enough money to pay their monthly bills. Many student go into default on their loans and have their wages and income taxes garnished and this will affect them for years to come when they are looking to start a family or buy a
Raising the minimum wage is something that should’ve been done a long time ago. By doing so, raising wages will actually help solve this as credit reliance will drop, and people with newfound spending power will be able to go out and buy what they want and desire. Let’s say that a student (specifically a college student) has to worry about grades, and can hardly balance their work-life. But however, that student can’t quit his/her job because that person needs help to pay for their college tuition. Financial Aid is helping her lower her tuition money, but however will soon graduate with a large amount of student-loan debt, which is a college student’s worst nightmare!
There are many different things that can impact students in their high school years. Whether these things are friends, activities, or the sports they participate in they all impact the student. Many opportunities are presented to students in high school, although not many impacts the student beyond high school, I believe this opportunity will impact me forever. I would love to be a part of the Early College Program this coming spring. I believe the program will do nothing but help me grow and strive to be a better student and continue being involved.
1. After watching this video I learned that the first generation college students in the late 1960s struggled so much so we could be in this excellent program so we could succeed. Nobody should ever be neglected an education like those students. We have many opportunities as the result of their actions and sacrifices because they fought so that this program could be as successful as it is. If those courageous students would have not spoken up and fight for their rights I would have not been here right now.
However, the burden of requiring us to make a decision is still unreasonable. It seems as though in addition to the school system, now even parents believe that going straight to college with a career plan is the only option for their kids! Bottom line, there are other ways to have a good life. Making students feel as though these decisions are important is necessary, but we shouldn 't have ridiculous amounts of pressure piled on us to make major life decisions so quickly. I want my years of high school to be filled with exploration and open
