Why are you planning to attend Oakton? Include your educational goals/career interests/professional aspirations and your plans to meet these goals. I am planning to attend Oakton because having known my financial situation for some time now, going to community college is the best choice for me. This is especially thinking in the long run. My goals at Oakton are to graduate with a 3.5 or above GPA and to take courses to help me get my general education out of the way which will allow me to focus more on the classes that I need in order to succeed in my major and to help increase my understanding with the job I hope to pursue.
I still had a lot to learn before I can decide on a college Some things I hoped to learn throughout this project is how I can get into a college with minimum student loan, what colleges I’m interested in, what colleges are looking for, is studying abroad better than staying in the states, and what classes I should take in college. The
This Texas Government course is my first online class and also my first Honors class in college. I am aware that online courses may require students to do discussion boards or group projects or any other assignments that encourage interactions among students. I expected to experience and improve my teamwork skills and critical thinking. Although this class was about Texas Government, I was looking forward to discussing the presidential election that was held during throughout the semester. Last spring semester, I took GOVT 2305 - the Federal Government- and found myself involved in discussions and debates.
In my four years of high school I have taken advanced, honors, and two years of advanced placement English courses. High school has so far prepared me to write fluently and effectively, it has also primarily prepared me for the kind of writing that was required of me in this course. College-level writing is important to me because it has allowed me the chance to further my writing skills and knowledge of different genres of essays. Just this course alone has already taken my writing ability way beyond what I have accomplished at a high school level. College-level writing courses are important because they will teach me how to better convey thoughts, ideas, and facts in simple and clear language.
Getting my bachelor’s degree and going the extra step to get my master’s degree was always my plan. By coming to college, I have built better networking skills as well as better social skills. Early in the semester, I made it my mission to join different organizations on campus to refine myself into the person I wanted to become. It is one of my passions to help people, including myself, become the best version of themselves as possible. It 's easier to help my friends here on campus than the friends I have back home who didn’t go to

My “supernatural aid” would come from all my teachers educating me so I am able to get into college and my parents who constantly remind and push me towards my goal. My “threshold would most likely be the transfer of my sophomore year of high school into my junior year. At this point in my life, I am slowly becoming an adult and taking on more responsibilities and starting to make larger life decisions. At this point in my life, I am passing into what will be some of the most important years of my life. My “threshold guardian: was most likely myself and my fears.
I highly suggest that you complete your required classes by the end of your sophomore year. It will be beneficial to choose from more desired classes junior year because you are finally given that opportunity. The electives you choose can help discover your passions and your career path. So if you choose to apply to college, you have background information from your electives that could prepare you for your major. If you feel overwhelmed, you could choose to take a study hall to relieve stress.
I attended college right after college because I wanted to add to what I’ve already learned in high school. Also I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. The things that was taught in high school was still be fresh to me. I was one of the fortune students who qualified for TOPS and federal grants to pay for my pricy tuition. I think if I would have had to pay out of pocket for tuition, I would have been one of those who would have set out for a while before attending.
They placed a great deal of emphasis on getting good grades in order to attend college. In addition to my immediate family, my extended family continuously asked where I was attending college, if I needed information on schools they attended, or how they could help in my search. With a plethora of expectations, resources, and social networks, my drive towards higher education was inevitable. Overall, the sociological approach explains how numerous social factors contributed to my habitus, which influenced my predispositions, search, and college choice. When analyzing my college journey, I realize how I felt "entitled to a particular kind of collegiate education based on [my] family's […] class status" (Sacks, 2007, p. 32).
Spencer, I found it rather illuminating to see what research and work in research could mean for a person, especially an undergraduate student. This interview made me realize the amount of work I will have for next semester, from balancing classes with research and managing my time much more efficiently than I currently am. I also enjoy the fact that Dr. Spencer will somewhat know me before I begin his RDC course, which will hopefully mean I will be able to rely on him for help in a more common and professional manner. I hope this interview can be the gateway into a more productive and professional relationship with Dr. Spencer, with whom I am extremely excited to work
National Junior Honor Society is the start of everything. This group helps set me up for my years to come. Being in the NJHS it helps me get into the one in high school, which looks really good one college applications. Having national junior honor society for both middle school and high school would give me a better chance to get into a college I really want to get into. I’ve always wanted to be someone who could help or make a change in this world, instead of just trying to get through life easy.
Why do you want to participate in the Bridges Summer Program? Participating in the Bridges Summer Program will help me greatly in the transition between high school and college. Reading about the program I have learned that this program is meant to help students transition to a college-level work environment and I know that I need this type of help. The good thing about this program is that they help students individually and this way students will have a better chance at really being prepared to start college in the fall. I want to participate in this program so that I can take advantage of how the program will help me to reach my career goal and transition from Valencia to UCF by directconnect.
I selected WRTG 101 because it was a required class towards my undergraduate degree. This is a class that I should have taken earlier in my pursuit of my degree; it would have been extremely beneficial to me with my writing assignments for other classes. Being a student of WRTG 101 employs me to use my critical thinking skills in conjunction to my writing skills. Prior to taking this class, I thought that my writing skills were above average; however this class has provided instruction and feedback that I needed improvement in several areas. Each Monday, I would log onto UMUC.com to read the Course Content/Alerts to see what the status of my progress.
Pancho S. Statement of Intent I want to be in AP Literature and Composition because I think it will prepare me for college. I heard that students who take AP classes in high school graduate college at a much better rate than those who do not take AP courses in high school. This is probably because they are better prepared for the level of work they get in college. I want to be ready for college. So I thought just being in an AP will let know what to expect in my future college, if I go to one.
