Admissions Into Finance

Moving from Indonesia to the United States was harder than it seemed. What I assumed would be a smooth transition turned out to involve a considerable amount of culture shock, even though I enrolled at UCSC: a multicultural campus with an Indonesian social club. I left Indonesia after the rioting and political turmoil there in 2000, when the Asian economic crisis was taking its toll on my life and the lives of all my friends and family members. Shifting colleges and moving to a new location seemed a good way to gain a greater perspective on the world as well as on my own life. With ambitions to become a personal or corporate financial analyst, I also knew that the United States university system would offer me far more flexibility and options. My grades do not reflect my abilities in my chosen field because of the difficulties I have had adapting to a new culture but the road has become smoother and I find little holding me back from excelling in graduate school. In graduate school I will have the opportunities to develop core strengths in financial analysis, meet new people and mentors, and expand my social network with the ultimate goal of becoming a self-employed or enterprise-level financial analyst.

Governmental and corporate finance prove interesting to me and I feel I can contribute to clients of both types. In fact, I have recently entertained the idea of helping small businesses grow. Small businesses have always been the heart of America. Being in America has opened my eyes to how many large corporations started off as small ventures. With the expertise of financial analysis, many businesses could prosper even sooner than they would otherwise or reach higher levels of market penetration than they might have without the foresight a good financial analyst can provide. If my mentors in the Master’s program feel I am well-suited for a career helping small businesses thrive, then I believe I will attempt to focus on that as an a…

Admissions: MHS

How will the MSHA degree enhance your career plans? Project the kinds of positions you anticipate having five years after earning the degree. What experiences have you had that form the foundation of your goals?

An MSHA will give me the necessary knowledge required to effectively manage the administrative and care-giving personnel at a major urban hospital and to improve the quality of care given to patients. I have worked for FEMA and in property insurance, as well as served on the board of a nonprofit organization devoted to community improvement, so I have intimate knowledge of the difficulties of navigating the complexities of political and insurance-related bureaucracies. The MSHA will give me a philosophical framework to deal with what I have already grappled with in my practical experience.

Within the next five years, I hope to become vice president or at least a department head of a major hospital, and act as an advocate for change of the nation’s healthcare system. Healthcare is a business today. I have owned three businesses, two cellular phone stores and a shoe store, for more than four years. But while I believe a hospital must be run efficiently and affordably like a business, care also must be delegated with compassion. I hope the degree will enable me to take this conviction of mine and deploy it in my community advocacy and administrative actions.

Give a candid appraisal of yourself. Include some discussion of your strengths and weaknesses.

My accounting degree has given me the necessary quantitative skills to put the compassion and sense of obligation I feel to the community into action in the healthcare field. In the practical realm of business, I have honed my skills at managing and motivating others under difficult circumstances. I have developed the ability to communicate complex concepts (like cell-phone plans) in a clear and comprehensible manner to the public, as well as become a quick-thinking pro

Application Essay

There are many reasons why I am applying to your school, as I believe

it to be somewhere that I could enjoy my educational experience in a high-

quality environment. The fine quality of instruction that would be

available to me there and the amount of learning facilities and

opportunities are very valuable, and they would help me to further my

education in a way that some other schools could not. I understand the

value of a good education, and I am not attending college to party and

cause trouble, or to socialize with everyone that I meet. I am one of the

students that take my education seriously enough to consider only schools

where I feel that I can learn and grow as a person and not be bothered by

many of the issues that plague students at other schools.

I have strong personal and professional goals, and they can only be

achieved by attending college and working toward them. I would like to do

this as early as possible so that I can complete my education and move

forward into my chosen career. I have no desire to be stuck’ in a job

that is going nowhere and that does not require a college education. I see

the value of jobs such as these while one is working his or her way through

school, but not for a lifelong occupation. I have a desire to do much more

than that with my life and am prepared to work for that.

I have made good grades throughout high school and plan to continue

that trend in college. I considered myself to be intelligent, a hard

worker, and dedicated to learning as much as I can in college so that I can

perform my career duties in the best and most efficient way possible.

Within the confines of an essay, it is almost impossible to convey the

seriousness that I have for schooling and the deep feelings that I have

toward attending your school in particular. It is also difficult to sell

oneself as a person and as a student, but I feel t…

In todays complex, multi-faceted business world, the role of a good education has numerous benefits. In order to succeed in any business, both personally and as to the expectations of your employer and you clients, one must have an education and training that provides one with the knowledge and skills to excel.

I ask that you kindly consider my resume and application for admission to the Texas A & M Masters of Business Administration program. As you can gather from my resume, my educational, professional, and personal background epitomizes your schools focus on providing a stellar business education while also providing hands-on experience and working on developing important business networks. Besides having real-world experience in the business world, I have been a student leader, a scholar, and a community volunteer.

My interdisciplinary driven life has allowed me to develop and fine-tune the various skills needed to be a well-rounded student and business administrator. For example, my time spent in the business world has given me the skills of working with, and understanding, the intricacies of running a successful business operation. What I have learned is that the business administration process of assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation is multi-dimensional. In all of the activities I have done, I consistently find myself returning to the basics of this process. More so, when applying this process in business environments, I have come to a better understanding of the importance and functionality of being a successful business person.

I feel I would be an ideal candidate for your M.B.A. program because my diverse background matches Texas A & Ms focus on providing their students with a diverse and practical business education. I believe what separates the Texas A & M M.B.A. program from others is its commitment to creating a well-rounded business leader by providing an interdisciplinary …

Illegal Immigrants Demanding Rights

This is our country our ancestors fought and died for it. We cannot just give away our sovereignty because groups of illegal immigrants demand their “rights.” Today, we face another revolution of sorts. Inside America, two factions stand against each other. Americans are losing jobs, prosperity, and even well-being to a group of people who demand their rights while they live and work here illegally. We must protect our borders from this invasion of illegal aliens. By allowing illegals to enter our country, we open ourselves up to terrorism and numerous social ills. A severe security risk, the question remains; Did we not learn anything from 9/11?

I believe some of the most pressing immigration issues are:

Hospitals: Many local hospitals and medical centers must treat illegal aliens, and the taxpayers have to pay the bills whether or not it comes from the federal budget or property taxes. Once they have a child born on this side of the border the parents become eligible for all types of welfare i.e., food stamps, state funded medical, HUD housing, WIC and many other benefits that we, as American taxpayers, all have to pay for.

Schools: Our school system is overcrowded; more schools are constantly being built at taxpayer cost. Many of the illegal immigrant adults do not want to learn our language but they expect us to pay for bilingual forms, translators and many other services for them. The list goes on and on. The majority of illegal aliens that come here are illiterate in their own language as well as ours. It is almost impossible to assimilate them into our culture.

Welfare system: Illegal aliens are the single largest drain on many systems throughout the country. They are very adept at maneuvering through our system to collect every benefit they possibly can get. We give them more help and assistance than we give to our own people or people who have come here legally. Our churches give food and clothing to…

A chance for a dream

For as long as I could remember, it has been my fondest dream to attend college. I knew that it would be an uphill climb to attend any college at all on my fixed income. All my life, I have worked mediocre, low-paying jobs. It is obvious that I cannot reach my dream without financial assistance. I sincerely hope that you will take into consideration my application for a Scholarship here at College of the Sequoias.

Over the past couple years; everything in my life has drastically changed. The way that I think, react, and live is now totally different. As I was growing up, my stepfather physically, sexually, and mentally abused me. The situation that I was in cost me many valuable things, including my childhood, but in retrospect, I have gained more that I lost.

Two years ago, finally hitting rock bottom at age twenty-nine, I found my self trapped in a ness of problems. Two years prior to this my mom and stepfather had moved to California, I stayed behind in New Mexico, soon my stepfather returned and moved in with me. His abusive ways, came back immediately. He threatened to shoot me; and all my friends. He had total control of my life; my worst fear was the reaction he would have when I told him of my wanting to leave. I was no longer content to play the same old roles that my stepfather expected me to play.

After a major fight with my stepfather, I was standing at a payphone attempting to call a friend to come pick me up, trying to catch my breath. I couldnt think of anyone to pick me up. I felt as if my sense of being had been totally cut off because of him and the decisions I had made. It was like I had flashbacks of the scenes through the last ten years of my life and how I was reacting to situations, and how everything I did was only fixing things in the short term. I came to accept what had happened to me in my past and decided to move forward to a better future.

A Child Called It

One day I was thinking of something new to read. When I asked my sister for suggestions, she told me to read A Child Called It, by David Pelzer. After reading this book, it automatically became my favorite book for many of reasons. This book taught me a lot of essential things in life that many people do not bother to appreciate until it is missing.

This book has inspired me in many ways. It made me realize that I am so fortunate to have a caring and loving mom. You see my mom does a lot for me. She is like my right-hand man. She encourages me to do my best everyday and not let anything or anyone stop me. As I read the book, all noticed that the only boy wanted was love from his mom and that was impossible for him to get. His mom would abuse him instead.

This book also taught me to appreciate and be happy with what I have. I notice that once in a while I whine a lot because Im not able to get new shoes or get new clothes. Sometimes I realize that I am a spoiled little brat for thinking that and very self-fish because a lot of kids can only wish for the things I have. The child in the book was barely surviving with the things he had. He barely had enough cloth over his body to keep him from freezing and I believe he didnt even have shoes.

Until this day, A Child Called It, is still my favorite book. It has taught me so much about life and how to appreciate what you have. It has inspired me to become a better person than I am today.

Admission Essay

As the Vice-President of an organization with a long and proud history of service to the community, I feel confident in stating that, John Doe has proved to be one of its most committed and involved members. Often, soliciting aid for a non-profit organization can be difficult. However, Jack has shown tireless resolve in his own commitment, and also in encouraging members of the organization to work with a greater sense of common purpose.

Recently, John has shown particular interest and effort in the organizations work with the visually impaired. I have found in the past that people have shown fear and ignorance regarding this neglected group in out society. People are often afraid of blindness, and blindness is not a cause that has generated a great deal of media attention as of late, in the popular press. However, Jack has proved invaluable in generating community interest and involvement regarding the issues and needs of persons who are blind. As the blind continue to face unique challenges in todays society, I know John wishes to continue in his efforts, even while attending university.

I would not hesitate to predict an outstanding career at any university John chooses to attend, and am certain that the college community would benefit greatly from Johns altruistic spirit and his strong sense of values. Engaging in service for others is a critical part of generating a positive sense of a common community, and Jack exemplifies this spirit in his work.

Admission Essay: Immigration into the United States

Beginning roughly in the mid 1700s, what is now known as the United States of America experienced a massive influx of people from European countries like England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy and Spain, just to name a few. This great migration of people from a number of diverse cultures eventually led to what is now called the Great Melting Pot, a reference to the various ethnic, religious and cultural groups that immigrated to America in order to escape from political and religious prosecution. With the advent of the Industrial Revolution in America sometime around 1850, these diverse groups of people helped to create one of the most powerful and influential economies ever known, not to mention assisting in the diversification of America itself as it relates to religious beliefs, the work ethic and contributing to the overall health and welfare of the nation.

Recently, much debate has arisen concerning immigration into the United States from such countries as Mexico, Japan, China, South Korea and some so-called Third World countries, mostly located in Africa and the Caribbean. Overall, most Americans are firmly against illegal immigration, particularly from Mexico, yet when the facts are clearly considered, those that come from such places as Mexico do indeed contribute to the health and vivacity of the American economy, despite not paying income taxes on the money earned by working at low-paying jobs in the service sector of the economy.

Personally, I feel that immigrants from Mexico and other countries deserve the chance to improve their lives and those of their respective families, even if it means coming to the U.S. under illegal conditions. After all, my own relatives came to America many years ago under similar conditions and through hard work, devotion and self-improvement, helped to invigorate the economy and make the U.S. a true Melting Pot. Overall, the federal government should encour…

Admission for Career in Pharmaceutical Field

When my uncle first told me about the LECOM School of Pharmacy, my ears perked up. A well-respected pharmacist in Florida, my uncle was in the position of offering advice for those aspiring to work in his field. Moreover, my uncle knows me well and has watched me grow as individual and as a student. His good judge of character means also that he can sense which social environments might best suit my needs. Knowing LECOM well too, my uncle knows what types of students are drawn there and what they need to succeed. He is also familiar with LECOM staff and pharmacy education facilities and so directed me to the college’s Web site.

Browsing the Web site, I noticed that LECOM offers a wide range of courses and programs for students interested in pharmacy. I am serious about my career choice and therefore need a school that offers a comprehensive four-year program that I can enter immediately. However, I would like to combine my undergraduate with post-graduate studies in the accelerated program LECOM offers, a track that is unique to our field. My level of ambition and my familiarity with the profession through the tutelage of my uncle makes me especially suitable for the accelerated program. Moreover, LECOM provides students with the opportunity to undertake real-world work while I earn my degree, enhancing my future capacity as a pharmacist. By working with local hospitals and clinics I can start planning how to best apply the skills I gain at LECOM in the local community. I have wanted to live and work in Florida for many years because I have family already established there and because I appreciate the unique culture and ambiance of the state. Therefore, the Bradenton campus perfectly suits my interest in establishing roots in the area, developing a strong network of colleagues, and providing community service as a professional. My goal is to give back to the community by combining my professional services with work in clinics and oth…
