I need to do this first: uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Okay, I am feeling slightly better. So, I have these two wonderful LoR writers that have already written letters for my nine schools along with two fellowships. However, my third LoR writer is starting to cause me to stress out. A LOT. Just to set-up everything, I told all three of my writers about my applications in mid-September. I gave them them a packet with all the schools and fellowships I a,m applying to, their due dates, any instructions or recommendations for the LoR writers, the programs I am applying to, the websites for those programs, and a visual timeline for the due dates. The first letter was due late-October. I sent my third letter writer about three reminder emails and a reminder text before she submitted her letter a minute before it was due. That was a roller coaster, but I was happy she got it done. Next, another letter was due last night. I sent her about two reminder emails (one about two weeks ago and one a few days ago) and resent the links twice (one about a week ago and one yesterday) as well. She ended up not doing it at all. It didn't bug her as much about this one because this application only needed two LoRs, but they prefer three. I am fuming because I gave her a lot of time and reminded her multiple times. When I first asked her if she could be my letter writer back in September, she said that she was willing to do all the applications, which makes me even more frustrated. She is testing my trust and that's scary because I have nine more applications that she needs to write LoRs for. I honestly don't know how to handle this. I am not sure if I should even mention the letter she forgot to write and just move on with my life. I am not sure if I should get a different letter writer or just try to trust that she will get the other ones done. I know she has a very busy job, but I don't want to have to keep reminding her every time there is a deadline due, especially since I feel like she should be able to manage her time after being a professional for so long. Maybe I am being too harsh. I hate feeling this way about someone, but I really don't want to worry and question about something someone promised they would do. I would be immensely grateful if anyone could provide any advice on how to handle this. Thanks in advance.
Hi everyone I'd be really thankful if somebody could judge my essay. I'd be happy to read your text (if you are taking the test as well). Thanks a lot! (Btw do you think it is too short? Approx 320 words.) Here goes my essay: Two years ago, radio station WCQP in Rockville decided to increase the number of call-in advice programs that it broadcast; since that time, its share of the radio audience in the Rockville listening area has increased significantly. Given WCQP's recent success with call-in advice programming, and citing a nationwide survey indicating that many radio listeners are quite interested in such programs, the station manager of KICK in Medway recommends that KICK include more call-in advice programs in an attempt to gain a larger audience share in its listening area. Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered in order to decide whether the recommendation and the argument on which it is based are reasonable. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to evaluate the recommendation. The manager of the radio station KICK intends to increase the audience share in their listening area but fails in creating a sound argument for following the actions of WCQP radio station. To begin with the station manager argues that WCQP's audience share has increased because of their increasing number of call-in advice programs. This assumption disregards any impact other management choices of WCQP may have had. For example they may have, in addition to increasing the call-in advice programs, raised their investment in marketing. Which may have increased the number of people aware of the radio station. Additionally WCQP's change happened two years ago, while this type of radio program may have been popular during that time this may have changed. There is no guarantee that the audience is still interested in this type of program. Not only does the time impact the results of the change the region is also an important factor to consider. Rockville's and Medway's population my be completely different. For example Rockville could be a town with a large percentage of retired people and families. If in that case Medway mainly had a population of students and young professionals their interests would be significantly different. The author does not discuss this point at all. The authors introduction of a nationwide study,citing great interest in this type of programs brings up a large amount of questions about the study. Neither the number of participants nor the demographic or the authority which conducted that survey is mentioned. Assuming that the number of people did not exceed 100 people and the questioned individuals were all pensioners. The result of the survey would be irrelevant for KICK's decision making as it did not cover a large enough or varying enough set of people. As a result, given the argument that the station manager provided one cannot confidently say that radio station KICK should introduce more call-in advice programs as his recommendation is not sufficiently backed up.
Are any of you guys terrified of the interview process? I had a professor friend of mine do a mock interview with me last night, it went well, but the amount of very specific questions kind of terrified me. I am very well studied up on the place I'm interviewing with this week, not so much other colleges.... I hope it will all be okay.
