  1. I am going to apply for a scholarship offered within psychology master degree at a university in Netherlands. They require me to write a letter of motivation that is specifically tailored to the scholarship offered. The problem is that, for several months, I had been focusing on writing up a Statement of Purpose, so I am bewildered a little bit now. Can someone please explain me the difference between these two things? And if you provide me with further ideas/insights about what to include in a letter of motivation written specifically to a scholarship opportunity, I would really appreciate it. Thank you sooo much for your valuable time in advance. Have good forums, Best
  2. I think Kaplan is decent for Verbal section but it is very simple for quantitative section of the GRE. If you are new to the topics in math you can start with Kaplan, but never confine yourself to Kaplan before taking the real exam.
  3. Hello people! This is my first try of writing an argumentative essay and I kept it so short. Any comment would be appreciated since your help would help me to organize my future study plans for awa. Argument: People who use the artificial sweetener aspartame are better off consuming sugar, since aspartame can actually contribute to weight gain rather than weight loss. For example, high levels of aspartame have been shown to trigger a craving for food by depleting the brain of a chemical that registers satiety, or the sense of being full. Furthermore, studies suggest that sugars, if consumed after at least 45 minutes of continuous exercise, actually enhance the body’s ability to burn fat. Consequently, those who drink aspartame-sweetened juices after exercise will also lose this calorie-burning benefit. Thus it appears that people consuming aspartame rather than sugar are unlikely to achieve their dietary goals. My Essay: The author suggests that consuming aspartame can prevent people from reaching their dietary goals based on several reasons. However, this argument is not convincing as it uses some manipulative and weak assumptions while making the aspartame inferior to sugar. Firstly, author propounds that using aspartame will remove the feeling of satiation in people so that people will consume more food. However, this statement lacks detailed gross regarding how aspartame stops brain to sense satiation and author ignores the fact that people can resist their biological impulses and they may behave not in a way that their chemicals want them to behave. Secondly, She argues that sugar increases the ability of burning fat after at least 45 minutes of exercise while neglecting people who never exercise or those exercise less than 45 minutes. Therefore, by not taking effects of sugar into the consideration on these people, the author just gives a partial information that is in line with her idea. To sum up, These main problems make this argument flawed and not convincing. Thus, the author should give more detailed biological explanation about the effect of aspartame on brain chemicals and should take representative sample of people into the consideration while giving examples about how sugar affect satiation of people.
