The endless paper work and deadlines seemed as though they would never end. When I thought about college, it seemed like it was not real, like it was a figment of my imagination. I imagined what it would be like, wondering where I would go. The questions of "What did I want to major in?" and after I decided that, "What schools had my major?"
You go three years of high school preparing for college and at the same time having fun. Until you are in your senior year of high school that’s when you realize and start asking your self what college do I want to go to? Or what college career I want to pursue? That’s when you notice you have but so little time to answer these questions. Me I’m in my last year of high school and I though I already knew what career I wanted to pursue, but its now that I notice that not even I know what I’m going to do with my life?
You Gotta Think! In life people have to make choices, in my life I have had to make many, many choices. I think that my biggest decision or choice would be my application and move to college. This would be considered the biggest decision I have had to make in my life so far. When your senior year in high school rolls around, most people have to start thinking about what they want to do with their lives in the next four years, and what will happen after those four years are done.
For years I have been waiting to experience the joy of Senior year and now it is here. To think that it will all be over in two and a half months is incredible. Soon enough I will be off to college and so, I want to start getting everything ready for when I leave. Everything is moving so fast and I hope to meet some of the people that will also be attending Wentworth next fall before I leave. First semester of college is going to be a practice round and then second semester is when scholarships will validate and start working.
It’s your senior year of high school. It is time for you to decide what you want to do after you graduate. You have a few possible things that you could do. You could start applying for colleges, get accepted to one, and then go to college right out of high school; or you could do the same thing, but take a year off. This brings up the argument of whether or not a student should take off a gap year before they begin college.
A large number of people want to receive an education that gives them a better shot at being economically stable in the future. It is very important for students to consider an education beyond undergraduate. I believe that many students are faced with this decision at the end of each school year. It is also viable to believe that these three items in this essay are of great significance to these graduating seniors. When a student spends four to five years in undergraduate school, they feel worn out and feel that school is the last place that they want to be.
Both universities informed me that I would have to retake my first two years that I had completed at Chattanooga State. I would have to commit for another four to six years of college. I did not have the time to do this. I wanted to be finished with my bachelor?s degree within two years if possible. So, later, when they realize that their choices are limited, their futures sealed or semi-gelled, they decide that school is where they need to be (Smith, 2001).
Happiness is reached when goals are accomplished or are on pursuit of being achieved. When in high school most students are trying to personally develop on who they are. Once they are in college they start to develop personally on whey will be, and what they plan on doing for the rest of their lives. I like many students did not know what to do out of high school, I wanted to go off to college with my friends but my parents had other plans. They knew I was not ready for a four-year college.
My Life As a College Student Making the Transition When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one student to dissolve the bonds which have held him to his high school life, he can get fairly intimidated. Making the transition from high school to college can be a tough one. I remember my experience in such a transition vividly, as it was only a short time ago. Growing up in a family in which both my parents had master's degrees, it was naturally expected that I would go to college, and for both my own benefit as well as pleasing my parents, I chose to pursue so-called "higher education". Stepping up to this "higher" plateau is no small matter, however.
What are you interested in? What can you see yourself doing in five, ten, twenty years? What jobs will be available when you graduate? Ever since my freshman year, I can remember parents, teachers, and counselors continually drilling these questions into the minds of me, my friends, and just about every other teenager across the country. From the first moment we step into high school, we're taught to focus on that one goal, that Holy Grail of all college life: the degree.
