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.
This might be a really dumb question, but I was still wondering. I just really want to know if my SOP reflects a fit for that particular program (Sociology). And I was thinking of emailing the listed contact reference for graduate applications (not some random professor I mean lol) - so then it wouldn't be completely inappropriate right? What do you guys think? Thanks!
Hi, I thought I should contribute since I got immensely helped from this site for a long time. I should explain this. Firstly, I am an EE Major student planning to switch to CS specifically to Robotics! Undergrad Institution: Top Engineering School in Mumbai (India) Major(s): EE Minor(s): Robotics Overall GPA: 3.0 Type of Student: Indian Male GRE: Will be giving July 8th, 2016 (Expecting 330+) Applying for: Fall 2017 Research Experience: I have extensively worked with MIT Media lab, Harvard Medical School on research projects and grants with tenured faculty from Harvard that are extraordinary. I have 3 publications with Harvard faculty and MIT students, in addition to that, I have 3 publications pending to be accepted. I have presented one research paper in USA on wireless communication using game theory. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: 1. Runner up for Augmented Books in AngelHack Hackathon at Bombay stock Exchange 2. 1st Prize in college technical fest for one of the projects 3. Outstanding student of the year award 2010 Pertinent Activities or Jobs: TA for experiment relevant to my research focus, TA for other non-related courses with Harvard Medical School itself Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: 1. I have given a talk in TEDx on one of my projects 2. I have 15+ Amazing projects 3. I have worked in 2 startups and eventually created a startup of my own on one of my projects 4. I have a widespread media coverage. 5. One of my project has been appreciated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: One recommendation letter from Harvard Medical School Tenured Faculty with uncountable papers and grants on him, another Letter of recommendation from a tenured faculty of University of new Hampshire from robotics department. Applying To where: It would be my dream come true if I get into CMU ECE (As it will be easier to get than CS because my majors are in CS and also CMU ECE and CS almost have same courses) I wanted my dear friends here to tell me what are my chances of getting into CMU Also what are my chances of getting into other universities with CS as my majors! I know its not right to count chicks before eggs hatched, as I mentioned I am preparing for GRE and not yet given, but still I want to know my chances, I think it wouldn't hurt to know chances of getting into my dream university!
