Recently, I began a new journey in my life by making the decision to go back to school. I had chosen to begin my family after high school and had put my education on hold. However, my children are at the age now where they are not in need of my undivided attention. This decision has turned into an enormous learning experience and I have found it to be extremely demanding and yet incredibly exciting and stimulating. The objective of this paper is to provide you with a clearer understanding as to why I have decided to pursue a Bachelors degree in Business Administration.
With the help of the professors and counselors I know I could excel in this great program for talented and gifted students. I wish to attend the rouse program to not only excel academically, but individually as well.... ... middle of paper ... ...rther our education. As next year approaches, I worry that the financial load will only get heavier as my brother and I start college. I believe that with this scholarship I will have the ability to study freely without financial restraints holding me back. With the support of my family and hopefully the Rouse Program through this scholarship, I plan to reach my academic goals and get the education that I treasure so much.
Lastly is simply because I love school. I love knowing more and more each day. College is not for everyone, but I will be successful by grasping the benefits, preparing for the problems, taking heed from experts, and working on strategies to be successful. Of course I know there will be road blocks that I would be facing that may try to hold me back from my goal. I am the type of person that if I want something I will do whatever it takes to reach my goa... ... middle of paper ... ... Release statistics show, 66.2 percent of 2012 high school graduates were enrolled in colleges or universities, but only 54 percent graduate from college.
Because I will be experiencing a wide range of core classes in addition to my major specific classes, if for some reason in the distant future I decide to switch careers, I will still be able to apply what I learned from UChicago in my everyday life. I personally would like to start my own company. In college, I would like to travel abroad, secure an internship and possibly work for a company for a few years to fund my own startup. I believe that I will only be happy if I am the leader of my own life, I am my own boss, and I can pursue my own interests. With a more widespread core education, I will be able to use what I learn more often in the process of starting my own company where I may have to do the work of multiple jobs on my own.
College is worth the money because it prepares you for a career, but most of all prepares you for the future and growth as an adult. When applying to college much is evaluated for acceptance. According to College Board .org, Admissions offices review each application for more than a GPA, and test scores. They review applications to see ones character, and what personal qualities you have, what makes you unique, and how you will contribute to the campus, do you have leadership abilities. When I graduated high school my parents could not afford for me to go to college.
The purpose of university is to learn and improve. If I do decide to major in education, regardless of the field, I will attempt to bring the fascination to learning to new things to others. No matter how long it takes, the amount of money it takes, I hope to complete my family’s dream of having a stable career. With this scholarship, if I can receive it, it will bring me one step closer. I may be able to fufill my educational goal and finally entering university and graduating and achieve my career aspirations in the whatever field I chose.
This will enable students to gear their education in a route which will hopefully benefit them after high school graduation or in their future. For some, these choices and decisions will never change. But for others, for various reasons, they may decide on a career change somewhere down the road or during the course of their life. As for myself, I definitely fall into the latter of the two mentioned. After working for years in the field of business (my first degree), I felt a desire and need for a career change.
As a person who struggled for years to thrive in school, I realized after receiving Dean's list honors my freshman year, that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. Now I am going to help others accomplish many things they set their minds to, through occupational therapy. I developed a strong interest in occupational therapy (O.T.) after volunteering with different people. A dream of mine has always been to be the first in my family to go to college and receive a degree.
The degree is the main reason why people go to college, and I want to be able to meet new friends, have a whole new life while studying in college. The truth is my focus has always been what everyone else wants, now it’s on what I want, and that is to get a degree. Obviously, getting a degree is one incredible thing for me to
As I have mentioned before, even though earning my desired degrees and desired grade point average will take me a while I have the drive to do so. During college I will not only help myself but I will also have the opportunity to help others through volunteer work. I am so excited with every new class I take and I am going to continue to be excited about my career and every job leading up to it well after my degrees have been earned.
