All of these aspects sound good for the high school level, however, they can be the polar opposites of how students are treated in college. Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week.
My mom would make a point that I better change my attitude if I wanted to go to college and make a life for myself. Of course that didn 't make me change at all I was to angry to listen to her and i thought I was right. My mom and I would get into fights so often and to the point we wouldn 't talk for a day at a time. The relationship between us was growing farther and farther apart. But when 10th grade came around that was gonna change.
This brings me back to the main question, “Why do you want to attend college?” I have seen my parents struggle from moving to a whole new country to dropping out of high school before even starting it. I am fortunate enough to be where I am today, all thanks to my parents and hope to make my parents struggles not go to waste. With the help of Goedeker’s College Scholarship, I will be one step closer to reaching my goals. To this day my parents are still struggling with financial situations. I was raised to be cheap, but yet there is one thing that always gets me: books.
Well not at my school because they don’t have a vet class in ag, but they do have a class online you can take but it is very hard. When you eventually graduate high school and want to become a vet you should have already completed some classes online in high school, then you should go to a college not just any college out there , go to a good college that has a high percentage in vet classes. Like my top choices of colleges would be Texas A&M, Baylor, Rice, Oklahoma State. If you ever needed some personal help outside of college go to a person that is already a vet, that person can teach you a lot of things. But another thing is you have got to have money that you will be willing to spend on college classes, those classes are not cheap at all they, usably range from $28,000 to $54,000 a year.
If you stay out all night partying then you will not do well in the class that you have the next day. If San Jacinto Christen Academy has not prepared me in any other way I am glad that I am prepared to stay strong in who I am as a person. I am not prepared for college. My school has not prepared me in the typical ways that you think of when you ask "Has your high school prepared you well for college classes?". If you offered me a chance to go back and be prepared for college in the typical way I would have to decline.
Yes, but only if it is hands on learning because I can’t teach from a drawing board or textbook. Do I plan on working when I’m in school? Yes, because I will need the money to fund my transportation, textbooks, and housing for school. What are my goals for the future? My goals for the future is 1st go to state fair community college in Sedalia, 2nd find a veterinarian job, 3rd buy a house in Blackwater, 4th when I have enough money to afford some children I will have 4 hopefully 2 girls and 2 boys.
If you feel like college isn’t for you there is still 2 other options besides college. If you didn’t do good in high school college doesn’t get much easier so you’re most likely not going to be successful. Unless you know for sure you’re ready for college you shouldn’t go straight into it. Freshmen go into college looking forward to the year, but 1 in every 3 does not return their second. Out of all the students that take remedial classes 75% will
My first semester I had many obstacles; however, it was worth it because at the end I learned to not give up. An obstacle I overcame was getting classes. Since, I applied late to school due to not being able to decide which college would benefit me more I was behind with enrolling, for classes causing me to not be able to get classes. There were barely any classes left for me, but I eventually found the three classes I needed. Getting classes was difficult because it took me a week to finally get the classes I need.
In my Sophomore year, I realized some regrets in what I chose to take in regards to courses such as not picking Intro to Computer Programming; however, the biggest regret I had within my choice of courses is the fact I did not take the school’s college-level course, Advanced Placement European History, because from what I had heard from my friends, who did take it, is that it was actually not as terrible – and impossible – as I had thought the course could be and thus, going into my Junior year, I decided to enroll for the Junior college-level course, Advanced Placement United States History. I was aware it would still be harder than your average honors-level course, but I still enrolled in it believing I could pass. I was so sure I would
If you don’t get interested in going to school. Did you ever think how your parents work hard just for you to have a better future? But all you do is destroy their plans for you. If you are not drinking or smoking, you consume your time focusing on other things. You are given allowance for you to study but all you do is to spend it on playing computer games.
An issue that could arise is a major adjustment in my study habits. Currently, my study habits may not be disciplined enough to achieve the grades I desire on a college level. Although this awakening might be harsh, it would force me to develop proper habits, preparing me for college two years in advance. Although the preparation that the Ohio State Academy would grant me is a strong reason to attend, the primary reason for my application is its intrinsic value. Although my high school offers a solid catalog of AP or CCP courses, the classes offered do not allow me to further my education in my fields of interest.
My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great so I didn’t really want to go, but it was the best decision I made. Going to Brookdale was a good choice for me.
The most important thing for me is an enjoyable environment in which my potential for learning can flourish. Coming to UWSP I found myself missing that environment, everything else I found enjoyable except the environment for learning. I need my own space so I could focus in my studies, and sadly it was too late when I finally realized that the dorm life it 's not for me. I was a high honors student in high school and I wish I could transfer that into college, but this semester has been extra hard to keep up with regular hours of studying. Hopefully with the move to UWM could guarantee me a safe and enjoyable place where I can focus on my studies and future.
Yet whenever I’d tell someone that, their bright smiles would always falter slightly as the same variety of questions would spill from their lips. “So you want to write for a living?” “What kind of income would that bring?” “Wouldn’t you have to write a best seller to make any type of money?” Questions such as these are the reason I’ve always felt uneasy about telling people what I planned on studying in college, especially my grandpa. He said I should major in Business, like my mom. Or Medicine, like my aunt. Fields of study that actually could land me a decent paying job after college.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures. I don’t think that anybody would think of me a failure just because I didn’t pass school, they would probably start to think
