Applying to schools back when i was a senior in high school was extremely stressful.
Most people i knew in high school were all applying to the same schools and universities and that created a lot of competition.When my parents recommended looking into Madison, I thought they were crazy. But it's a capitol city, and I love politics, so that's an experience you can't get at very many other places, and it's far from my home (a 9 hour drive), which I wanted. I'm still struck with awe at times and how beautiful campus is, even as a junior, be it seeing the capitol every day walking home, seeing State Street, seeing the Kohl Center, looking at the old buildings... So no matter if you're a jock, a hippy, or simply a friendly nerd (like myself). The classes are challenging and the staff extremely helpful, but these aren't the only reason I decided to come here.Madison is simply put one of the friendlest places I have ever lived.The problem the essay addresses might arise in early childhood education, compulsory education, or post-secondary education, or in the way children are raised in families. The winning essays will be featured on our website.The essay might, for example, concern any of the following topics: The author/s of the first prize paper will receive 00 and an invitation to participate as a discussant in one of the Center’s regular workshop-style conferences (invitation includes airfare, accommodation, food). Eligibility: The author or co-authors must be enrolled in a graduate degree program in an accredited college or university, but must not yet have defended their Ph D by June 10, 2019. The essay must not exceed 6500 words (excluding references). Essays may be co-authored as long as both authors are graduate students. All of our sample college essays include the question prompt and the year written.Please use these sample admission essays responsibly.Also, my mom, aunt, uncle and grandmother attended UW-Madison. The collective feel of Madison from the beautiful community on the lake to the rigorous course work contributed to my decision, too. I decided to transfer to UW Madison and have never regretted my decision.I like that it's big, I can make the choice of whether I want to be just another anonymous face in my classes or if I want to personally know my professors.
