Grad Day

...Graduation Day A lengthy four years of high school really set the stage for a great graduation. Graduating from high school became the single most important event in my life so far. Being a part of Wake Forest-Rolesville’s 2011 graduating class was a special moment. This moment is very significant to me because it was a long term goal that I had set out to accomplish, and I succeeded in doing so. Of course I felt accomplished after graduating high school, but I also realized many new doors would open for me. As a high school graduate I became eligible for higher education. Being able to attend college is essential for trying to achieve my life goals. Graduating from high school meant that I was just one step closer to achieving these life goals. A Painful Strand The death of my grandfather played a major role in my growth as a young man. His death did more than just show me that his time was up. I recall this experience being one of my most difficult. This was my first time ever witnessing death, seeing my father cry, and attending a funeral. Watching my grandfather pass away and my father cry were both very painful experiences. I had never planned nor prepared myself for anything like that. The pain and sadness that came along, transformed me into a cold hearted person. Taking on this new change required me to grow up much faster than planned. The growth took place because, I lost interest in many of the activities and trends a teenager might find......

...of the executives believed the allegations, many agreed that nothing could be gained from a caustic and protracted legal battle. Even if the company won, it might do so only at the expense of appearing heartless and inured to concerns about fairness, they argued. But Mr. Ivester refused to budge, leading executives who thought Coke had erred to quit or stew in frustration. That changed earlier this year, when Mr. Daft succeeded Mr. Ivester as chief executive. He ordered officials to settle the matter swiftly. Coke has also stepped up efforts to heal rifts with minority groups, particularly in Atlanta, where it has donated money to schools and churches attended by some of the plaintiffs. Coke also said yesterday that it would donate $50 million, in addition to the terms outlined in the settlement, to the Coca-Cola Foundation to support schools.

Grad School Entrance Paper

...My life’s direction and purpose has not always been clear, but more of a muddled path with multiple turns, bumps, and progress along the way. Pursuing higher education and continuously developing new skill sets have always been personal objectives for me. I have learned through my life lessons the basic value of self-improvement. An MBA would enhance my capability to independently assess multiple situations, develop a rational plan and execute the plan. Obtaining an MBA will present new opportunities for me to figure out where I want to work and study. My success in life will be enhanced when I complete an MBA and pursue a new professional career path. As an undergraduate student, I majored in biochemistry. I believed having a scientific background would give me the skill set to lead me wherever I wanted to go in life. However, by the time I entered my junior year I was in serious doubt regarding my degree decision and my passion for biochemistry. After discussing my options with my parents, we came to an agreement that I would finish my degree because it would give me a solid foundation with a technical education. The biochemistry curriculum exposes participants to high levels of proficiency in math, logic, and problem solving. Additionally, the curriculum promotes the development to work independently and think creatively about potential solutions. I finished my degree but continued to feel very sceptical about pursuing higher education because I wanted to make sure I......

Because of my absolute commitment toward earning my degree, I got a flexible shift at a retail warehouse which enabled me to a cquire my degree while supporting myself financially. Enrolled at the local community college, I experienced a different world opening up to me; excited by a new encouraging environment, I excelled academically. I learned that if I tried hard, I could suc ceed; if I wanted something badly enough, I possessed the ability to take advantage of these opportunities. I worked a minimum 35 - hour workweek for five years to put myself through school without succumbing to the temptation of a student loan. I paid tuiti on up front with the money I earned. It was the example of my mother, a Puerto Rican immigrant working diligently to provide for her family, who instilled a work ethic into me that has stood me in good stead. With a lifelong passion for history, I have de veloped an interest in the cultural history of early modern and modern Europeans, especially women's history. The experiences of ordinary women fascinate me: how they constitute their world through popular folk tales and literature; how the seemingly irrat ional paradoxes of the past to modern eyes are completely rational when taken within the historical context; and finally, how these historical changes and......

However; my passion acting and TV did terrible for my academic’s. High school- senior year has always been the best year in high school; for me anyways. I was getting selected for plays, short films, debutante and much more. Nothing could mess up my senior year, until my guidance counselor call me into her office. “Lashaunde, we need to talk.” Ms. Ellis said. Her tone was very calm. That was unusually for her, being that was a “loud mouth.” I lashed back with “about what? “Being that she called me away from my rehearsal for debutante practice that I was on my way to. She started to ask me what my plans were for the future. Everyone knew what I wanted to be. Hell, they had me on the morning announcements. I lived for acting and broadcast. “Well when I graduate I plan on moving to New York or California to pursue acting! Duh! ” I said back with attitude. She started to bother me with college question. She told me that this was a big decision and I needed to figure out back up plans. She said “A college degree goes a long way, when you apply yourself.” I always wanted to go to college and I figured I would go one day, just not when I graduated.

Grad Admissions

...graduate admissions essay. Writing a statement that tells a graduate admissions committee all about you and can potentially make or break your application is stressful. Take a different perspective, however, and you will find that your admissions essay is what ensures that you match up with a graduate program that will offer you the training you need for the career you desire. Let's take a closer look at the graduate admissions essay. What is its Purpose? Your graduate school application provides the admissions committee with a great deal of information about you that cannot be found elsewhere in your graduate application. The other parts of your graduate school application tell the admissions committee about your grades (i.e., transcript), your academic promise (i.e., GRE scores), and what your professors think of you (i.e., recommendation letters). Despite all of this information, the admissions committee does not learn much about you as an individual. What are your goals? Why are you applying to graduate school? With so many applicants and so few slots it's critical that graduate admissions committees learn as much as possible about applicants so as to ensure that they choose students who best fit their program and are most likely to succeed and complete a graduate degree. Your admissions essay explains who you are, your goals, and the ways in which you match the graduate program to which you are applying. What Do I Write About? Graduate applications often ask......

Personal Statement for Economics Programme in Grad School

...I have never thought about being a student of economics three years ago before I applied for my undergraduate university. I was the Chief Editor of my high school’s newspaper and I was dreaming about becoming a journalist who builds a better world for the poor and the need and bring equality and prosperity to those less favored community. Three years of Economics study teaches me many things. Among them, the most important one is that there is another approach to the my goal. Many predecessors of mine have proven that the economy study can change the world by their thought and witness. Liberalism leads to the vitality and creativity in the global markets; Malthusianism convinces the developing countries to take actions on the population control; Welfare Economics help balance the living standard between the poor and the rich in some way. These are the changes I wish to make myself. It might not be the most direct way to help people or even a country sort out their financial problems like journalists or social workers do but it is the way that truly make a difference because the power of great thoughts can change the world fundamentally. I would like to be part of it, by making some contributions on Economics. Inspired by Capital in the Twenty-First Century, I am writing an essay about the distinction of distribution with my classmate. I have witnessed the inequality of income distribution : my mother worked as a contract worker for a company where her monthly income was......

School Loans

...In the USA Today article In-debt grads with no jobs can side step loans. The article was written by Sandra Block on May 25,2010. It makes you aware of time restrictions on paying your loans and how to go about extending your loans if needed. I t also informs you about a program for income based payments. It also lets you know that after you graduate you will be entering a wretched work force and there is 5 candidates per job opening. It tells you how subsidized loans is when the government pays the interest part on your loans. Plus you never want to let your loans go into deferment. If you are not aware who services your loans then you can check the database of The National Student Loan Data Service which is www.nsids,ed.gov or you can go to www.ibrinfo.org . I found this article on June 21,2011. In the USA TODAY article Colleges offer grads help repaying loans. The article was written by Mary Beth Marklein on June 13. 2011. The article states that some small liberal arts colleges offer students help to repay their loans upfront after they graduate. Also that a number of wealthy colleges has done away with financial aid programs. Most small private schools lose students to a low financed public school. This loan program that these schools have gives students a safety net on re paying their loans. The participating students pay nothing for the benefit.

...9th grade school year The 2012-2013 year was fun and educational. Even though some of the classes were hard, I still managed to pass it. I love learning new things and have fun in class and meeting new people every day and make new friends. In English, the teacher helped us prep for the GRAD TEST, which was very smart. While prepping for the GRAD TEST I gained some new knowledge like how to make the essay sound very interesting. I was very excited seeing my score that I got from the practice essay since the teacher grade the same like how the GRAD TEST will be graded. However, the history day essay was very fun, too. It was fun because I got to research about the topic that I picked and I picked “Birth Control”, which was a very interesting topic. Some of the information that I learn from “Birth Control” while I was researching was that between 1910 and 1915, 300,000 women died in childbirth. That’s more than all of the men who died in the U.S. wars from the Revolution to World War 1. History day essay was also fun because I get to use the information that I had research on “Birth Control” onto my essay that I am writing. In French, the teacher was very good at teaching because he is very easy going and I understand everything he is teaching. Another thing about my French teacher is that he is very nice and he gives out candy to his students. Also learning different languages gives us more knowledge on the culture and also improves our communication skills with others......

I am so excited to get a Windows based program; as the ones we have now do not interface with each other. This creates a lot extra work and double charting for the nursing staff. I have been explaining to coworkers how much easier this new software will be and will function more like your Windows program you use at home. Of course I have already told my supervisor to count me in as super user for the new program. I love the balance of caring for patients and helping coworkers with the new technology! 30 years ago my GPA for my last 60 hours of nursing classes was 2.2 not as high as I would have liked. At the time I was juggling finishing school, working 30 hours a week, married, pregnant, a step mom to 2 young children and my husband worked on the road Monday through Friday. In last 30 years I have studied and taken 30 continuing education hours to maintain my nursing license every 2 years. Some of the courses I have taken are: Basic Life Support, Advanced Life Support, Neonatal Resuscitation, Basic Fetal Monitoring, Intermediate Fetal Monitoring, Advanced Fetal Monitoring, Stable, and many others.

Grad School Career Plans

...sport; my mother would argue it was my hyperactivity and jumping off of furniture or roof tops that forced her to enroll me in classes. I took rapidly to the sport and began competitions and continued for years through high school. As graduation neared, I needed to decide whether or not to continue with the sport. I was not quite good enough to receive a scholarship, and I would need to “walk on” to a program and hope to make the squad. I chose to continue with gymnastics and that determination led me eventually to Michigan State. As a freshmen it was very intimidating to be entering a large university with over 50,000 students, but nothing was as scary as the first day I stepped foot into the gym at Jenison Fieldhouse. I was surrounded by other new athletes and the team of men that already were a part of the squad. I then took a deep breath and walked inside, because I knew we all shared a similar passion, the sport of gymnastics. From that first practice through the next couple of months I grew in skill and vigor for the sport as I never had before. Being surrounded by a large team of elite athletes drove me to levels that I had never expected in such a short time. I was truly on my way to competing as a varsity athlete at a Big Ten school. Then on a seemingly regular day in late October, that progress all came to a grounding halt. I was at practice and we were on the floor exercise. I stood in the corner preparing to perform a relatively new skill. I......

Personal Statement for Grad School

...My future career in pharmacy was well thought-out before college until the very moment I was questioned about how I felt about my life. I was assisting a patient in the pharmacy and she merely asked me, “How’s life?” My response of simply being content prompted an unexpected response from not only her but myself as well. She responded, shocked, that I couldn’t have used a better depiction and how satisfying it was to hear that I was content. Her stunned reaction made me question not just about how rare it was for others to provide a similar response but ultimately, whether or not I meant what I had said. Was I really content? That was when it truly hit me, I was not satisfied with my life. I did not want to become a pharmacist. For me, it was something that lacked exhilaration, something that I just had absolute no desire for. All because of this patient's comment, I made the drastic change to drop pharmacy and switch career paths. I no longer wanted to make the same mistake and choose something I did not enjoy, like pharmacy. I wanted to explore something I have always been passionate about, which is numbers! While I found out the hard way about what I wanted to pursue in life, it was better for me to derive to this decision sooner than later. Later that year, I decided to get my feet wet by first taking an introduction to accounting course. It was so minimal and to explore even more, I took the subsequent course as well. After taking those courses, it utterly reinforced my...

...Property Crimes Case Study # 49 Applied Managerial Statistics: GM533 Virginia Davis, Lauren Holder, Stanley Philip and Andrea Watson Executive Summary The Property Crimes study examined data provided by various U.S. government agencies on crime rates in the fifty U.S. states. Other data studied were eight possible contributing factors such as per capita income, high school dropout rate, average precipitation, population density, and urbanization. Analysis revealed, of the eight possible contributing factors, three of those variables (urbanization rate, high school dropout rate and population density) affected property crime rates. Of the given data, the model accounted for approximately 66% of the contributing factors associated with property crimes. Statistically, the data is generally considered to be strong, however, to account for the remaining 34% of factors contributing to property crime rates in the U.S., further data and evaluation of other possible factors would be necessary. Introduction Property crime, as defined by the U.S. Department of Justice (2011), is the taking of money or property without force or threat to victims and is inclusive of the following offenses: burglary; automotive theft, larceny and arson. An exception to the rule is arson, although it does not involve the taking of property, it does use force against victims.
