Supporting Statement for Post Graduate Admission
Music is my first and strongest love. I spend most of my time listening to music, composing music, learning as much as I can about music, and devoting as much of my life to the pursuit and study of music as possible. Therefore, studying in a course of Music Technology at the post graduate level is the logical course of action for me on my path to achieve my professional, academic, and personal goals. I am a creative and disciplined person with passion, skills, and potential. I am ready to hone the skills I have been cultivating up until this point in my life and dedicate myself to the academic and personal challenges that a post graduate course presents. I have developed a strong skill set, but I am aware that in order to accomplish the goals I have for myself, it requires further study and diversification of my repertoire.
There are a variety of goals I have that pertain to the study and composition of music. I am most interested in composing soundtracks and foley for the film industry. I have already discovered my talent and aptitude for composing compelling soundtrack to film and video that has already been produced. I function well working independently and work well in groups. My socialization and networking skills are adequate, but that is an area in which I believe all people no matter their industry could use improvement, myself included. I enjoy meeting other artists in the field, and I know my interest in film will bring me in contact with film professionals; thus, another aspect of this course that appeals to me is to strengthen my communication and networking skills. An area in which I must improve is the ability to compose soundtrack…… [Read More]
Admissions Statement (250)
Some careers are professions, others are callings. I am called to the career of social work because I believe it provides some of the best opportunities to help people who are in crises or transition and to provide that help in a constructive and relatively rapid manner. I began studying in the summer of 2006 at Somerset Community College. I stayed at Somerset and obtained an Associate Degree in Business Administration. In 2009, I returned to Australia, my country of origin, and enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts program, majoring in Sociology. Not surprisingly, my studies in sociology exposed me to social work. Until that exposure, I had thought of social work as an extension of counseling, and, though I knew it was under the sociology discipline, I felt like it was more similar to psychology. However, the greater the exposure I had to the field, the more I came to understand the holistic approach that social work takes to problem solving. I know that as a social worker I will not be able to solve all of my clients' problems or fix entire communities on my own. However, I do strongly believe that, as a social worker, I will be helping provide guidance to those in the community who are in need, and providing opportunities for those who are leaders to help others in their community. For those reasons, I wish to continue my studies in sociology and become a social worker.

Admissions Summary and Analysis
Postpartum depression (PPD) represents increased symptoms of depression that are correlated to having recently given birth. Although rather un-discussed in mainstream social communications, it often tends to have a relevantly strong presence in new mothers. Its recorded prevalence has ranged dramatically, from some reports of as low as 5.5%, and others as high as 25% (Lee et al. 2011). Various literature also poses the idea that rates of PPD can depend on cultural factors as well, with some cultures having much higher rates of PPD incidences than others. This incredibly variant nature of PPD often makes it hard for clinical practice to understand and predict. Moreover, postpartum depression can occur over a wide period of time, ranging independently based on individual women. Lee et al. (2011) show that it occurs more so in cases of earlier periods after birth rather than longer stretches of time. In fact, the research shows that it occurs most frequently within the first month after giving birth. However, postpartum depression symptoms can also occur often throughout the first year as well.
Lee et al. (2011) show how PPD can also be witnesses in heightened levels within the cases of women who had previously undergone in vitro fertilization (IVF). Unfortunately, dealing with the systematic stresses of the process of conceiving through IVF methods can be damaging on the mental state of the soon to be mother. The stresses of having to deal with previous assumptions of infertility can greatly impact the later development of PPT symptoms in new mothers. Lee et al. posits that assisted reproductive technology (ART) does impact the potential for new mothers to develop symptoms of PPD. Here, the research suggests that "successful ART treatment, mostly through in vitro fertilization (IVF), or infertility produces a special obstetric experience that contributes to particular concerns about women's postnatal mental health," (Lee et al. 2011). Still, previous research had not exposed statistically significant differences between the rates of IVF impregnated mothers and traditional…… [Read More]
My lifelong dream is to design new medicines, to craft them according to the needs of the human community as well as the demands of the industry. While I love working directly with the public, I know that my talents and my ability to help others lie in scientific pharmaceutical research. I have a natural affinity for lab work and know that I will be able to come up with creative solutions to heretofore unsolved medical problems. My temperament also lends itself to the work of a researcher, as I am patient and can spend long hours spent in silence, with my main daily conversations with colleagues pertaining to lab work.
The knowledge I gain in pharmacy school will lead me toward the exact areas of specialty that I will be able to capitalize on later, as a professional. While in school, I will not only dedicate myself fully and passionately to my academic work but I will also seek out every opportunity I have to work hands-on in laboratories as a lab assistant, volunteer, or intern. Already I am immersing myself in the top academic journals of the field and so am familiar with research methodologies, major names in the industry, and recent theories and breakthroughs. While I participate in my doctoral studies I will finally have the opportunity to have my own work published, in conjunction with the esteemed faculty at the university and with my fellow students. I look forward to working with your faculty on their work, and have selected this school especially because of the caliber and academic focus of the pharmacy school.
Whether I eventually find work in the private or non-profit sector, or within academia, remains to be seen. Regardless of the actual organization for which I work, I would most enjoy being part of a large research team so that I can brainstorm with others and keep abreast of the latest medical breakthroughs. However, I hope to work for pharmaceutical companies or medical research organizations that retain strong ethical standards. Because I am aware of the political and economic imbalances in the American health care system, I would like very much to…… [Read More]
Patrick Bradshaw, because his research is currently focused on the study of mitochondrial dysfunction with age; (2) Dr. Meera Nanjundan, because her ongoing studies into the chromosomal imbalances associated with human lung cancer provide a perfect opportunity to apply my previous academic experience in the study of the biology of cancer in connection with my master degree; and (3) Dr. Lindsey Shaw, because he is studying molecular regulation of the pathogenesis of Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus anthracis.
In the 2005-2006 academic year, I attended the following conferences at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center, in furtherance of my education and my long-term professional goals: (1) "Update in Oncologic & Molecular Pathology" and (2) "The Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders" (lecture). During that same time period I also participated in the formal Medical Technology Student Meeting I and II at the King Fahad Medical Research Center. That year I was fortunate enough to receive the annual "Best Intern" award for maintaining high quality laboratory work and teamwork during the internship year at King Abdul Aziz University Hospital.
It is my sincere hope to continue the same work ethic and academic focus at the University of South Florida for Cell Biology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology PhD program if I am fortunate enough to be afforded the privilege. Ultimately, I hope to extend the benefits of the opportunity to study at your university to the medical and academic community in my homeland to reciprocate for the Kingdom's generosity to me as a student. Thank you kindly for your consideration. Respectfully,…… [Read More]
Besides independently conducting group sessions with children who are moderate-to-advanced swimmers, Jane also demonstrated a talent for working with individual high-need children requiring one-on-one attention. Jane is particularly skilled at dividing her time and attention efficiently to different levels of swimmers and routinely managed to include older, high-need swimmers within her beginner-level classes without detracting from the quality of instruction provided to swimmers of different ages and levels of proficiency, including first-time swimmers. As apart of our Big Brother/Big Sister program, Jane tutors the students in the 7 -9 age group in the YMCA after-school program. Currently, Jane has one Little Sister to whom Jane regularly provides homework assistance in addition to taking her on play dates twice a month. It is obvious that the two of them share a very close, special bond and to Jane's credit, she has already made plans to continue mentoring her Little Sister on an informal basis if that is ever necessitated by her many other responsibilities and educational pursuits. We genuinely consider Jane a tremendously valuable asset to our YMCA family and we have every reason to expect that she will be extremely successful as a student at the University of San Diego and in all her future academic, personal, and professional pursuits and that she will continue to contribute more than her share to her community.

Admissions have had a recurring dream in which I sit in a classroom, my desk facing everyone else's. All the other students and the instructor are staring at me, their heads twice the size of mine. Sometimes several of the kids start pointing at me, and the entire room then erupts in laughter. They mock me and tease me and all I can do is sit there; I'm paralyzed and can't move.
A wake up from these dreams feeling frightened and ashamed. There is something wrong with me, I think. These dreams reflect my anxiety about fitting in and being accepted. They also illustrate my main weakness of character: low self-esteem. Although I put on a good front and have a great circle of supportive friends and family, I often feel like an outcast, or worse, like my life has no meaning. Disguising my inner turmoil with smiles, good humor, and a positive disposition does nothing to erase the dreams from my subconscious. Deep down I know I have to confront my inner fears and conquer my unwarranted sense of inferiority.
A questioned where I received these negative messages about myself. My parents were not abusive. They didn't tell me I was a worthless child.…… [Read More]
One of my specific academic goals in the field of real estate also is to gain a better understanding of how the lending process works in the United States. Knowing that the process is much different than it is in France, I will gain a lot from academic courses that introduce me not only to real estate law but also to real estate economics. I have studied accounting in depth and therefore already have an understanding of how finance relates to the field work of real estate sales.
A look forward to the language intensive in Seattle, which will improve my communication skills so that I can work better within the American market. Whether or not I find work with a large firm or whether I decide to use my license to be an independent realtor, I know that my college experience will contribute to my future career success in this exciting field.… [Read More]
Currently I am a patient care assistant at a local hospital, a position I dearly enjoy. I still get stressed out, especially when I go to work while my four-year-old is ill. Yet for some reason I always come home happy and satisfied.
I would like to continue working along these lines, but in a more challenging position as an LPN who specializes in adolescent psychology. The patients who gravitate toward me the most seem to be those who can relate to me most. I would be equally as effective working with seniors or the disabled, but because I can empathize so well with troubled teens I feel that my main talents lie in adolescent counseling psychology. My topsy-turvy teenage years give me the strength and conviction to help others, and I don't at all feel that could be a simple coincidence. I need financial aid to further my career goals; as a single mom I cannot afford to pay my bills and advance my education. I appreciate the opportunity to apply for a scholarship that so aptly suits my needs -- again not another coincidence. Moreover, throughout the course of my future career successes, I know I will be an optimal representative for your organization. Thank you for your consideration.… [Read More]
I am writing in order to request admission to your undergraduate institution for the upcoming term. Despite my current status as a sophomore at another institution, I have continuously admired the academic standing and community values that your school embodies, which is why I have made the decision to request transfer applicant acceptance.
During the past two years at my current undergraduate institution, I have made the effort to become involved in campus activities and uphold my academic standing, which I believe I have done to the best of my ability. However, despite spending two years at my current school, I have never truly developed the personal connection to my college that I have long dreamt of having. Because of this, I have realized that my time at my current institution is nearing an end, and it is time for me to move on to bigger and better things.
I have long admired the academic and community standing that your school embodies. I have had the opportunity to visit the campus and observe several members of the faculty and student body, which did nothing but fuel my desire to finish my undergraduate education at your…… [Read More]
Admissions Committee the extent of my abilities and experiences. I am applying for a position in the field of Bioinformatics, a burgeoning area of research that will redefine the future of the life sciences and medicine.
Historically, Bioinformatics drew worldwide attention as an independent discipline after the publication of the Human Genome -- the genetic blueprint for mankind -- by a public consortium and in the private sector. The information portends previously unimaginable consequences in the medical field. Gigabytes of genomic information became available and could only be processed using computational techniques. Very few personnel are qualified in both: the information sciences and life sciences. In this aspect, I am unique qualified.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from the prestigious University of California at Los Angeles followed by two years experience as a research scientist at Maxim Biotech in San Francisco. My biotech experience extends to a comprehensive analysis of the Arabidopsis (a plant belonging to the mustard family that has become the model for plants) genome. I was involved in identifying the gene sequences in the genome using Bioinformatics methods. I was also involved in the annotation of the protein sequences that gene-portions on the chromosome encode.
I have made indirect contributions towards finding a cure for cancer. My research involves work in the area of apoptosis or cell death. Our bodies are composed of organs and tissues where the basic unit is the cell. Cells have a lifetime during which they perform their functions. In most cancers, the signal for cell-death malfunctions resulting in unlimited cell growth -- malignant tumors.
I was actively involved in the development of kits that detect HIV (Human Immuno deficiency Virus) that many researchers believe is the virus that mutates into the AIDS (Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) virus, besides other sexually transmitted diseases that are becoming the scourge of…… [Read More]
Because I know I will excel in my chosen field I can assure you that I will represent the scholarship fund as an outstanding student of counseling psychology. My dedication to the field is evident in my having excelled at my coursework but more importantly, I have immersed myself in real-world experiences that parallel my career goals. Volunteer positions, internships, and work-study experiences that are detailed in my resume will illustrate my dedication, my level of work experience, and also prove my ability to work well under pressure. Therefore, graduate school is an ideal environment for me to showcase my talents, network with like-minded students, and meet staff and faculty who can guide my learning experiences, open my mind to new theoretical perspectives, and allow me to participate in research and the advancement of our field as a whole. I look forward to the opportunities this scholarship will afford me and I appreciate this chance to let me shine. Thank you for…… [Read More]
I want to learn how businesses function. In my time in the investment industry, I have gained a keen interest in finance, and how it can be used within the context of strategy. How a company structures its finances can contribute significantly to performance. I am also drawn to investment banking. In addition, marketing and strategy are areas which must be understood in order to help companies grow and improve.
After business school, my strategy will take me into the higher levels of management. In five or ten years' time, I should be entering the executive suite. Fifteen or twenty years in the future I hope to achieve my goal of becoming a CEO of a Fortune 100 corporation. The MBA will help round out my education and put me on this path.
Personal success will not be measured strictly on managerial achievement, however. I have to give back to my family, in particular my father for all that he has given me in terms of knowledge, wisdom and experience. I want to lead the way for my siblings to enjoy success of their own. As a man of value, I want to be a beacon for others to not only attain success in the corporate world, but to combine that will giving back to those who have helped, and assisting those who have suffered from conflict and disaster.
In an everchanging world, it is important that every strategy for success be build on a strong foundation of education and values. The tools I will acquire will allow me to capitalize on the drive and ambition I have already displayed. The MBA program is an integral component of the education that I need to become a man of success, a…… [Read More]
I believe that I am a caring and empathetic person who can identify with the needs of others and help them when they need help, which is one of the reasons I am interested in the nursing field. I also am interested in research and development of new understanding of diseases and treatments. I am hoping that I could work in an area where I can work with patients and in clinical trials or other situations where I can learn more about these activities, as well, and that my interests and natural curiosity would aid me in these areas. I am also organized and efficient, qualities that I think are important for a good nurse.
I believe one of the biggest problems facing the world today is healthcare, and the lack of healthcare in developing nations. I believe as nurses, we have an obligation to work toward improving healthcare around the world, whether it is by research, volunteering, or serving with a global healthcare organization, and I believe that obtaining the best training possible by attending your school could help me toward helping these problems in…… [Read More]
Always great within a social context, Anna was a breath of fresh air in the classroom, for both me and her fellow students. Never one to ignore discussions, Anna continually stood out in classroom conversations -- without putting her classmates down to do so. She truly exhibits a passion for learning and her craft.
This energy and charisma is also illustrated in her writing. As a true devotee to her craft, Anna has never been one to be afraid of taking calculated risks with writing, within both a creative and academic context. Never once was I afraid to read her work in fear of bland and passion-less rambling, which proves typical of many undergraduates within their first few years. Rather, she proved exactly the opposite, and always took the hard route, with all its successes and lessons along the way. Courageous in both her technique and organization, she proved to have a thorough understanding of her audience as well as the rules of formal and informal writing structure. Yet, as ambitious as she is, never once was constructive criticism lost to an unbelieving mind. She was the first to listen earnestly regarding how her writing could improve, and was also the first peer her fellow students would turn to for honest and reliable advice on their own writing. Anna worked wonders with helping her classmates edit their work and prepare themselves to elevate their writing to a level which would take them all far in their chosen academic and career paths. I strongly believe that her abilities will only continue to improve and drive her forward in whatever path she chooses for herself.
As an educator, I must admit my jealousy in not being able to lead Anna into her Graduate career. However, I know that she will prove an asset to any institution she steps foot into, and so implore this Admissions Committee to strongly consider Anna Willington for the Masters program at the University of California at San Diego. She has come a long way, and yet has so far to go. I believe such an illustrious university as the University of California at San Diego could only benefit from her presence.
Please consider my words, not only as a recommendation -- but also as a promise.
Thank you…… [Read More]

Helping Shape the Future
When you look around at all of the opportunities available today, it can be overwhelming. Even narrowing down a future profession to one that serves the community leaves a wide range of choices. One can join the health care field, become a social worker, retail clerk, or even work in the airline industry.
However, one of the most important and overlooked fields is education.
Can there really be anything more rewarding than molding young minds and giving them a good start on the road to life?
Imagine the prospect of inspiring a future President of the United States. The little girl with pigtails could be the first human on Mars. The little boy in the back could find a cure to cancer or the child looking at you with admiration could end world hunger.
Just by being around children, the world seems new and you look at it through completely different eyes. An empty cardboard box is now a car driving in the Indy 500.
The plane overhead is heading to wild and exotic places like Hawaii and Africa. A simple kleenex and sucker become a scary ghost for Halloween. You start to believe there really is a Santa Claus and reindeer can fly.
Children are the world's future and it's up…… [Read More]
Esteemed Admissions Committee at (Name of the Institution here):
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is (your name here) and I am from (hometown here). I am someone that is courteous, flexible, and fully committed to learning and adapting. I have a passion for dedicating long and late hours to my work, especially work that involves caring for others, as I believe this to be my life's calling. My unique mix of previous work experience has assisted me in tackling problems requiring singular performance and focus.
This kind of focus is what I believe is required for nursing school, and subsequently, I am very motivated towards a nursing career. Based on my own family history and numerous stories from friends and acquaintances testifying to the benefits of medical practices, I am firmly convinced that people's lives can be changed for the better. Our health is something which we can not take for granted and we must play an active role in managing our own health care. For me, this reaches far beyond caring for myself. I can not imagine a more fulfilling and compassionate way to spend my life than by helping others realize their own potential for great health. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to attend your commendable establishment, and should you have any questions before you reach a decision of entering students, you may reach me via phone (your phone number here) or via email (your email here).

Graduate Admissions Committee:
I am sharing my background growing up, my career experience, and my personal interests with you for your consideration into your graduate degree program in XYZ School. For the most part, practical experiences and reason have shaped my life. I wasn't born knowing what I wanted to accomplish and didn't have any early gifts that pushed me in a certain direction. Rather, the largest influences for me have been experiences growing up in a military family and early service in the military as a medic.
Growing up as the child of an Army Officer, I frequently relocated throughout the country. During this time, I attended eight different elementary schools and three different high schools. Always being the new kid on the block, I learned to adapt to new environments by honing my reasoning skills. My intuition allowed me to quickly figure out how to fit in and my practical experience from constantly being a new student provided me with the knowledge of how to attract new friends and how to quickly get up to speed in different learning environments. Given a choice, I'd probably have preferred the stability of civilian life, but I did learn how to quickly adopt to new situations and I valued my friendships because I was never sure of how long I'd be around.
During my school years, it was difficult to get exciting about participating in activities because I was never viewed any situation as being permanent enough to make the effort. However, I did manage to join the Boy Scouts and I also played organized sports. These activities not only gave me the opportunity to bond with my fellow students, but provided me with invaluable mentoring from my Scout leaders and coaches on the importance of working as a team and fighting a fair fight instead of just winning at any cost. I started and lettered in football and also played in the club league for a few years.
Growing up in the 60's and 70's was a particularly challenging time for many, but most particularly for me because…… [Read More]
