It is a very subjective question.
When applying to the UK you need to submit a personal statement highlighting not only your academic achievements but also your extra-curricular activities.
Many students apply to prestigious universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Nottingham, Sheffield etc....
It is here that your extra-curricular activities will distinguish you from the rest.
Moreover certain universities in the UK and USA offer scholarships to students who have excelled in fields such as sports etc.
Previously Indian colleges placed little emphasis on co-curricular activities. However at present, prestigious colleges place significant importance on Extra-curricular activities.
Just remember not to join too many clubs just to fill your resume. It is important to be involved in the few clubs/activities of which you are a member. Also, be sure to be an active participant from Freshmen year, not just right before college application time.
there's no real "trick" to getting in, other than having great grades and test scores...that's the same for any college that's really worth applying to. go here for specifics: http:/www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/undergrad_adm/selecting/camp_profiles/camp_profiles_ucla.html
It doesn't matter if you are an undergrad or graduate (or anything else in life.)
The suffix options after a name are determined by how the parents named a male son.
Jr. and Sr.
A father may be born John Joseph Smith. (He is NOT designated a Jr. unless his father gave him the exact same name AND that father designates the son as Jr.)
If he and his wife choose to, the son can be named John Joseph Smith, Jr. (junior) (Note: At this point, the father can then choose to add "Sr. (senior) to his own name. This is done mainly to distinguish father from son.) The designation of Jr. and Sr. are typically carried on throughout each man's life.
II, III, IV
In some families, a father John David Jones, who names his son by the same name, may not wish to adopt "Sr." after his name. The father remains "John David Jones" throughout his lifetime. The son of the same name is often given the suffix II (roman numerals) to designate "the second".
A son who carries the name John D. Jones, II then has a son and gives him the same name John David Jones III to denote that the son is the 3rd consecutive generation in the same direct family line to have the name John David Jones. The same with the designation IV, meaning "the fourth". Typically, family naming patterns do not go much beyond II and III.
So, you may have a name without a suffix. In that case, leave the suffix box blank or put n/a (not applicable).
Legalities of Naming
If you have a designation after your name, it will appear on your birth certificate (unless you became a "Sr." after the birth and naming of a son with your *exact* name AND designated the son as "Jr." on his birth certificate.
NOTE: Simply calling a son, Junior, in the home is not a legal suffix, but is used as a shorthand among family members only.
ALSO, in the past, some families had not decided on a name but had to pick one for the legal birth certificate. The U.S. Census pre-1930 shows many boys/men with the FIRST name as Junior.
ALSO, in the past, nurses or doctors misheard what the mother and father said and some birth certificates show "Junior" in the middle, as if it was a middle name. For example, John Junior Smith (when the parents intended it to be John Smith, Jr.). In this case, the LEGAL name remains John Junior Smith, with no suffix. The person can petition a Court to officially change the name and issue an amended birth certificate.
Yes, they have won multiple titles, most famously under the coaching icon John Wooden: UCLA has a total of 11, which is the most out of any school in the NCAA's: 1964, 1965, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1995
Boastarr is right - the average GPA for incoming students at Harvard is a 4.0. And that makes sense - it is one of the best schools in the world and attracts the best and brightest students from around the globe.
So does that mean you shouldn't apply if you don't have a 4.0?
While Harvard (and all Ivy League schools) attracts very smart students, GPA is not the only thing Harvard cares about. And many schools - including Harvard - are putting less and less emphasis on GPA overall every year.
I've said it before in response to similar questions, but there are MANY students with perfect GPAs that get rejected from Harvard every year. And there are also students getting admitted with a GPA below a 4.0. (It is an average, after all! Not a minimum!)
Harvard wants more than just a perfect GPA and a perfect SAT/ACT score. They want students who challenge themselves, and students who engage in the world around them (outside of the classroom!) What does that mean?
Well, for one, it means that you should not choose all the easiest classes in school in order to maintain a 4.0 GPA. Harvard will recognize that instantly, and it won't do you aaaany favors.
At the same time, if you are taking all Honors/AP courses and spending 100% of your time studying in order to get perfect grades, that's not going to help either.
What you want to do is mix things up. Take those challenging courses AND get involved in activities OUTSIDE of school. That can be sports, it can be volunteering, it can be an instrument, it can be... anything! Find something you love and get involved. And don't do it just for the sake of your apps. Schools can tell that, too! Do it because you love it, because you enjoy doing it, because it is your passion and you get excited about it. When you go about it that way, you'll naturally get more and more invested in it, and you'll have a lot more to show for yourself when it comes time to apply to college. (And the schools really want to see who you are as a person and what you care about and all the cool things you've accomplished because it shows them what sort of community member you'll be when you get to campus.)
And while you're doing that, make sure to stay focused on school as well. But don't stress out if your grades aren't 100% perfect. Schools, especially those in the Ivy League, would rather see you challenging yourself and getting a B+ than coasting through high school and getting an A+.
At the end of the day, if you're targeting Harvard you DO want to get that GPA as high as possible. Same with your SAT/ACT scores. After all, consider who you will be competing against to get in. But you should not devote 100% of your attention to getting a PERFECT GPA. There's a LOT more the Harvard admissions committee wants to see, and focusing exclusively on your grades is a bad idea.
If you go the the Harvard website (www.harvard.edu), click on Admission & Financial Aid, then click on the link for undergraduates. Once you're here you want to click on Admission & Financial Aid FAQ. This will give you a list of topics. Click on Standerdized Tests found under the admissions category. There you will find an answer to your question along with other similar questions. Hope this helps! Along with the SAT I, Harvard requires three SAT II subject tests. Taking the ACT too won't hurt, though.
this can but should not be tricky. a court order can easily solve this problem but mainly it is up to both parents to decide what is best for the child. if the activity is agreed upon then consider a simple mediation to solve the problem then both parties can sign an agreement.
Contrary to some opinions, rapping is not just 'talking fast'.
Rappers need to have an extremely good grasp of language, word play, rhyme, alliteration, similes and metaphors. Rappers are the common day poets of our society.
Rappers need to develop their 'flow' and delivery. Their 'flow' is the type of tone and voice the rapper chooses when rapping their lyrics. For one example of a rapper's flow listen to the rapper known as Twista. Twista was (at one point) listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the Fastest Rapper. Twista chose a very fast delivery and hard tone for his songs.
Rappers must also develop excellent breath control. If you've ever attempted to rap along with the music and ran out of breath before the artist....that's why.
you need not to give up if you do something wrong in a song
obviously that depends on your gas mileage and the cost at the time. Roughly $30. Dont forget to double that if you plan to come back.
Yes, three times in fact.
Definition: Debt consolidation implies joining more than one debt commitment into another advance with a great term structure, for example, lower loan cost structure, residency, and so on Here, the sum got from the new credit is utilized to take care of different debts.
Depiction: Debt consolidation is utilized by purchasers to take care of a little debt in one pass by taking one major advance. By doing this they save money on enthusiasm just as the account cost of the little advance owed by them. The borrower would now need to make one installment as opposed to making different installments to different banks.
Debt consolidation can occur on debts which are not tied up to a resource. Instruction advance, sum owed on MasterCard, individual advance are a few instances of unstable credits which can go under debt consolidation. from debt redemption.
There are a few stages which borrowers ought to follow when they are intending to solidify their debt. Distinguish your debt(s) commitments, the aggregate sum that you owe the banks, time span or residency, apply for a consolidation advance, when you get the advance result different debts, adhere to the installment pattern of the united advance.
How about we comprehend the idea with the assistance of a model. For example you have a credit commitment of Rs 3,00,000, which incorporates a two-year advance of Rs 1,00,000 with a loan cost of 12 percent. There is another credit of Rs 2,00,000 which conveys a loan cost of 10% yearly.
The regularly scheduled installment for both the advances comes out to associate with Rs 11000 which incorporates an installment of Rs 5170 from advance 1, and another installment of Rs 5830 from advance 2.
The borrower can connect with debt Consolidation Company to comprehend the structure. They may have the option to bring down the simple regularly scheduled payments or EMIs to around Rs 6000, and unite both the credits into one. Be that as it may, in the process the residency was expanded to take care of the advance.
Debt consolidation is utilized by purchasers to take care of a little debt in one pass by taking one major advance. By doing this they save money on enthusiasm just as the account cost of the little credit owed by them. The borrower would now need to make one installment as opposed to making different installments to different banks.
The highest ever IQ is attributed to a Korean man, Kim Ung-Yong, who is reported to have achieved an average IQ of 210 (although it is not necessarily this high anymore). To answer the original question, the likely answer is that there are more men with an IQ > 190.
It is well known that, women have a lower average IQ, and men have a significantly greater standard deviation. One could say, the stupidest men are stupider than the stupidest women, but the smartest men are smarter than the smartest women. Of course, to do so would be a fallacy, not least because IQ is generally regarded as a poor measure of true intelligence.
Here is what they say: To calculate your patio's size in square feet, multiply its length times width. If it is irregular, divide it into sections, calculate each one, and then total them. Or just count the number of squares on your graph paper plan. Here are some other formulas: � Circle patio: Find the area by squaring the radius and multiplying it by 3.1416 � Hexagonal patio: Find the area by squaring the short diameter and multiplying it by .866 � Octagonal patio: Find the area by squaring the short diameter and multiplying it by .828 (Forgetting your seventh grade math? Square a number by multiplying it by itself.) Plan on five bricks per square foot. Multiply your square foot total by five to see how many bricks you will need. Try this link to work out the quantity of bricks required (would calculate the same for vertical or horizontal, just put the overall dimensions in for a single skin brick wall). see links for how to
Reactive planning is the process whereby future action is dictated as a response to whatever has already, or is now, occurring--- it is "reflex" or "knee-jerk" in nature. The opposite side of the coin is proactive planning, which sets in motion actions as a function of what is anticipated or probable; it is preemptive in nature. jb
