    Argument Essay for GRE pt. 1

    Hey, guys! I hope you're doing awesome today. I wanted to know if you guys were willing to grade my essay for the GREs. I would appreciate it! To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. Societies allowed for growth in many areas of human knowledge and technology. Many agree that in our globalized world, societies must understand one another through interactions, academic or otherwise. Because new ideas tend to be efficiently explored in the academic system, the academic has a priority in studying these cultures. To do so, academics should look take time to look beyond major cities to study the most important characteristics of a society. Many cultures are highlighted in major cities but many major cities are a mixture of different cultures combining traditions. In fact, the greater the population, the more fused cultures come about, limiting the representation of the culture that experts know of the society. Cities that hold a high population (e.g. New York) generally hold “Koreatowns” or “Chinatowns” which represent nothing of the W.A.S.P. culture in rural America. Many of these Chinatowns and Koreatowns are almost like you’re residing in their society. While one may argue that represents the culture of the area, towns with large populations of minorities tend to display the culture of the local area, not the general society of the nation. The nation itself can also hold societies that are nomadic in nature, making it impossible to find a major city of that society. Nomads are not keen on building infrastructure the same way non-nomadic nations aren’t keen on constantly moving to find food. These nomadic people tend to be very difficult to study because of their constant movement within the nation. A small representation of that society may appear in major cities, but these people are not permanent residents of these cities. In order to effectively study them, experts would have to follow their interactions while living with the tribe. The study of culture is very important to not only the society itself, but to other cultures so interactions are not harmful or deleterious to progress. Nevertheless, one will not find every aspect of a society in a small group of locations versus multiple locations.
