I can best describe my interest in engineering in terms of a vehicle my father purchased for either my younger brother or me to drive: a rusted out, barely running 1978 Toyota FJ40. FJ40’s were utilitarian four-wheel drive vehicles to begin with, and this one had all its (few) creature comforts removed; it was essentially a rusty steel tub on wheels that did not even run....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 878 words

Students Should Receive Help When Applying to University - These days there is a controversial issue on how much other people should ‘help’ you in writing personal statement while applying to college. Some of my friends insist that since it is a ‘personal statement’, it is to be done solely on a student’s own. However, I view this matter in the other way. Personally I see that unless a writing personal statement service is involved, getting a help from teacher and parents is still not considered cheating.

My Philosophy of Education - Philosophy of Education If I had to pick one view that is most compatible with my own view and learning and teaching it would have to be Constructivism.

Leadership Philosophies - Everyone has a different definition of what makes someone a leader. My definition is not a statement of requirements, but more so a list of characteristics.
