Jennifer Weist after she provided me a suspension waiver for the 2011 Summer Term so that I could complete M ATH 0094 courses. This course was paid by me and passed. I continued to prove how important school is to me by passing the Fall 2011 semester with a GPA of 2.50. If I didn’t have undergone this surgery I believe and know I would have passed the Spring semester. I requested and INC for MATH 1107 from Professor Harris and was denied.
Also two of my brothers still went to this school with this address on file. I was pretty much fed up with high school at that point. So I got my GED a few years later. School has been hard for me since but I am finally getting past it. I cannot even picture where I would be in life right now.
Going Back to School Edgell Ratliff Foundations of Online Learning American Public University System Donna Hardy Going Back to School We all have our own motivation for going back to school; my motivation is centered on setting myself up for the future. It has been four years since I graduated high school and enlisted in the Army, and I have seen firsthand how important it is to have that little piece of paper. I have seen Soldiers retire or separate from the Army without a degree and start the job search without much success, there are a large number of available jobs, but there is a larger number people competing to get that same position. Seeing how difficult it can be and how people struggle in today’s competitive job
Decision Making Process Paper Ruben Rodrigues MGT/230 June 27th, 2012 Alfredo Rodriguez Decision Making Process Paper There was a point in my life when I had to make a professional decision regarding my education. My life goals would have been impacted if I had not enrolled in a university or college after graduating high school. Everything in that period of time was changing drastically and my decisions ultimately reflected up on my new family-to be. Before enrolling into the University of Phoenix where I now attend I asked myself three questions before signing anything. What is the cost, location and convenience, and if the programs fit my education plans that I’m perusing.
ENGL 1010-037 12/2/13 Standardized Testing: The ACT As a second year college student, I have been forced to take many standardized tests throughout my first 12 years of school. But, none of those tests would compare to the most crucial test, the ACT (American College Testing). Obviously I had to take this test to be admitted into Tennessee Technological University, which determined everything from my scholarships to my class placements. As I was preparing for the tests, I noticed that not only did the tests fail to include knowledge I had acquired throughout my high school career, but they also did not accurately place me into the correct classes that I would need for my freshman semester here at Tennessee Tech. My main concern with the ACT is that I fear that the makers of this test are failing to measure the academic success, including the skills and intelligence levels of students around the country.
I started searching for my records from my previous high school so I could apply to college. After many calls to the New Orleans School District I was told that my records of graduation weren't available at the time but they were still searching. This took months leading to years and still nothing was found. This is when I resorted to plan B. I began taking GED subject tests at Green River Community College to speed up my process of attending college. I finally got my GED this summer and I have been applying to colleges ever since.I got back to practicing on my trumpet and also brushing up on my reading and math skills.I want to play in a band again and be able to teach music and also incorporate physical therapy into all this.
As a freshman, I understood that the rigors of taking 18hrs credit hours of class work would be challenging. I thought I could handle the workload and I still believe that I could have, except that both my paternal grandfather and my maternal grandmother become very ill while I attended Richmond. As my parents first born child, I was extremely close to my grandparents. I became emotionally distraught concerning their conditions and it began to affect my ability to focus on my studies. They each have since passed with cancer, nearly 8 months
Shelby Hunt Instructor Brewer Engl 1301 October 8, 2014 Unfair School Funding As I was filling out my schedule for the next school year, I realized I needed another elective to get me to the right amount of credits I need to graduate. I knew exactly what elective I wanted, Cosmetology. It was a two year program that would benefit me in the long run after school. I skimmed through the list of different options, but only to see it was not there. I asked my consoler if there was a misprint or if they had gotten rid of the program altogether.
Easter 2010: An Epic Self Discovery Amy Foote English 121: Composition I Professor Timothy Peoples May 8, 2015 Easter 2010: An Epic Self Discovery I never realized how life altering Easter 2010 would be. I have overcome many things in life, but getting clean and sober was one of the hardest, but most rewarding obstacle. Little did I know that I would embark on a two month journey of self discovery. That one day would be the starting of a two month journey that would change the way I saw myself. I had to look at what I had become over the previous eighteen years, I had to endure the worst pain for two months, and I learned how strong of a person I really was.
I really did not think I could finish school. Both my parents and my sibling did not finish school. At the age of 38, I did get my high school diploma. It took me three years but I did it. Therefore, I had to make another big choice and that was to go to college and get a degree.
