The last message my mom presented to me is to go to college right after high school, get it done right away, and take advantage of opportunities whether it’s tutoring or being able to retake a test, Nonetheless, “ Time management is the utmost, once you get that down you won’t be overwhelmed” this allows any college student to be prioritized and have a “better flow” when it comes to school or college work. That is why college is so important to my
From the start of the semester, I have found myself not meeting standards because of my difficulty being able to explain myself correctly. In one of the first formatives we were assessed on, The JFK Inaugural Speech, my use of quotations were effective, but the sentences that followed were opposite of that. While analyzing the comments made by you stating that the explanation needs to be more “specific” and “have a greater focus on analysis,” I made it my task to improve on what was keeping me from earning a better grade. When looking at my Destination Essay, the focus seems like I’m “playing with multiple ideas,” but I don’t necessarily have one perfect idea. By missing out on fixing these mistakes and seeking help from you, I continued to demonstrate this lack of explanation in multiple other essays and formatives.
Although my grades were not always consistent, I never earned less than a B for a final grade in my English courses. Often my instructors privately told me that my papers were the best in the class and shared my work with others. My writing secured me a free trip to London and Paris with my business club as well as my acceptance into multiple colleges. I am certain my extracurricular activities, including cheerleading, volleyball, community service projects, fundraisers and employment also played a vital role in these accomplishments. Of all the schools to which I applied, only VSU waitlisted me probably because of my phobia about standardized examinations, which caused me not to perform as well as I should have on the SAT.

I was very nervous because I thought I might not succeed.

My first year of school at the University of Arkansas was even more spectacular than I could have wished for. In the fall I participated in the Razorback Marching Band. It immersed me in Razorback traditions and helped me to feel welcome here so far from home. I made friends and learned how to allocate my time wisely for studying and getting homework done.

This award honors students who go above and beyond in the three A’s: Academics, Arts, and Athletics. Being very involved, I wanted to achieve this goal by my senior year. It was something that motivated me through the long nights of homework and practices. After tearing my ACL, I made myself take a step back and focus on what was best for me both physically and mentally. I could still be the “AAA student” and not be involved in every activity.

I started my first year of college with my life planned out. I had a ridiculous notion that everything was going to be a piece of cake. I was going to join different clubs, do lots of research, make the dean’s list, make my parents proud and attend as many parties as I could. However, now when I look back, I realized that I was too comfortable in my life. I thought I was ready to overcome every obstacle that was thrust upon me but I was sadly mistaken.

I am a freshman with the major of Petroleum Engineering. This information is relevant, in fact, because I will compare my expected major writing and the writing I am using right now.
