We Are The Universitards
visavis
I am stuck in a bit of a bind. I am a community college student with about a 3.7 GPA, I am also one of the first people in my family to actually go beyond just community college. I am very active in clubs at school, I do a lot of volunteering work, etc.

I am going to try and transfer to a UC school here in Southern CA – the deadline is Nov 30.
I have most of the paper work for my requirements and transfer in order, but I am having a major problem getting any help or direction on my personal statement.

At this point I can either transfer as a History or Political Science major, I have enough units and requirements for both. The thing is that I have been trying to get some direction from counselors at school, but the community college that I go to pretty much sucks. Nobody is really helping me besides telling me to “answer the question” and “write about yourself” – our school used to have a transfer center, but it was shut down due to budgetary reasons.

So I am here asking you all for some help. Would any of you know of any good sites regarding personal statement samples for History and Political science majors seeking admission to a UC school – or any type of four year university?

I really don’t want to copy anyone’s work, I just need to read something else and see what they are actually looking for, what’s going to give me that edge? I have absolutely no direction.
Thanks a lot for the help

A little comic relief to lighten your load (or at least help procrastinate it a while longer). :)

Sun plays tricks of the trade players to be named later when I'm done with this test in futility is my nature presered trees and B's for the entire class room to breate deeply and speak softly running hands through her hair less chinchilla infested tree stump the genius level I Q is always followed by U except in this sentance structure and proper noun phrases to mock a gimmick to sell new pants fresh with two pocket twos all in complete grades recieve a zero chance to turn it all around the block three or four times like the village bicycle rider testing their endurance on a steep climb a mountain rescue patrol the streets keeping an eye out for hoolms causing chaos effect cause I'm your mother that's why do birds suddenly appearing nightly all weak sauce lacking taste tells bad jokes nightly we're all made uncomfortable by these facts of the matter can neither be created nor destroyed. You sunk my battleship Arizona Cardinals flapping away gin and speak easy carry a big stick of dynamite can go a long way if you work on a budget your time is money so dont spend it all in one places names proper nouns described by adjectives modifying the colour and the shape of things to come along now don't be afraid of the big bad wolf at the gates of heaven on the way down town hall of mirrors reflecting light soda half the carbs half the sugar daddy mommy baby faced family ties cut with a pair of scissors in the junk drawer of lost arts and crafts a sculpture out of stone henge a henge made of stone and soap bubble tea for me four for you and the horse you rode in on and off again we're back at the same old place with the same blasted cliches faded, down, tired, numb, perfect, gracefully falling to your place in the sand dunes tidal swept under the afghan rug trimmer slimmed won from last seasons cliffhanger final episode five the empire strikes out among the cold hearted wenches and swab the decks and batten down the hatches out of an egg and greets the new world with closed eyes seeing no evil zone defense minister of state affairs with the intern working for college credit consolidation of all outstanding debts paid off in installments collecting an interest in picasso was an artist who tore down the buildings of the city of angels floating on their clouds numbered nine oblivious to the world around above and below them flowers shore are purdy little face the music major issued the parking permit the landlisde into your comfortable grooves in a record player player hate the game of chance cards and community chest bumped off the waiting list your favourite things in alphabetical order a burger fries and the large diet coke addictions are physical habits are mental patients locked in a badded room looking for the penny in the corner store and stockpile supplies for the end of the story book ending this drawn out situation you should have never gotten yourself into the black as night rider on the storm front for money laundering

If any of you know any of these or can help, PLEASE let me know... I know I shouldn't beg on these, which are actually for points this time, but after having my wisdom teeth out last week, I've fallen behind on some of this and super can't afford to miss more than I did for being out to recover. Anyway, please take pity...Collapse )

food for thought. [Feb. 7th, 2005|03:50 pm]

Ok so I was talking in my government class and we got on the topic of one specific harvard study.

Harvard stated that the number of obease people in this country are increasing. There for causing life expectancy is slowly declining. Also the percentage of obease people in each generation is also increasing. This being said more and more people generation after generation are going to die of being fat. Now, this being said.

The harvard busness school also plugged this into their social security factor and found somthing shocking. If the trend continues as it is shown there will be no need to reform Social Security becuase by 2027 there will be so many people dying before retirement due to obeasity related illnesses that Social Security will not go bankrupt. The system is fixed. Thank Mcdonalds.

...just some food for thought (yes i know it is a bad pun)

Sorry i dont have figures or a website to back it up if u really want it i can ask my teacher twmarrow for ya.
