101 College Essay Examples for 13 Schools + Expert Analysis

College Essays

 

The personal statement might just be the hardest part of your college application. Mostly this is because it has the least guidance and is the most open-ended. One way to understand what colleges are looking for when they ask you to write an essay is to check out the essays of students who already got in—college essays that actually worked. After all, they must be among the most successful of this weird literary genre.

In this article, I’ll go through general guidelines for what makes great college essays great. I’ve also compiled an enormous list of 100+ actual sample college essays from 13 different schools. Finally, I’ll break down two of these published college essay examples and explain why and how they work. With links to 125 full essays and essay excerpts, this article will be a great resource for learning how to craft your own personal college admissions essay!

 

What Excellent College Essays Have in Common

Even though in many ways these sample college essays are very different from one other, they do share some traits you should try to emulate as you write your own essay.

 

Visible Signs of Planning

Building out from a narrow, concrete focus. You’ll see a similar structure in many of the essays. The author starts with a very detailed story of an event or description of a person or place. After this sense-heavy imagery, the essay expands out to make a broader point about the author, and connects this very memorable experience to the author’s present situation, state of mind, newfound understanding, or maturity level.

Knowing how to tell a story. Some of the experiences in these essays are one-of-a-kind. But most deal with the stuff of everyday life. What sets them apart is the way the author approaches the topic: analyzing it for drama and humor, for its moving qualities, for what it says about the author’s world, and for how it connects to the author’s emotional life.

 

Stellar Execution

A killer first sentence. You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again: you have to suck the reader in, and the best place to do that is the first sentence. Great first sentences are punchy. They are like cliffhangers, setting up an exciting scene or an unusual situation with an unclear conclusion, in order to make the reader want to know more. Don’t take my word for it—check out these  22 first sentences from Stanford applicants  and tell me you don’t want to read the rest of those essays to find out what happens!

A lively, individual voice. Writing is for readers. In this case, your reader is an admissions officer who has read thousands of essays before yours and will read thousands after. Your goal? Don’t bore your reader. Use interesting descriptions, stay away from clichés, include your own offbeat observations—anything that makes this essay sounds like you and not like anyone else.

 

Enchanted Prince Stan decided to stay away from any frog-kissing princesses to retain his unique perspective on ruling as an amphibian.

 

Technical correctness. No spelling mistakes, no grammar weirdness, no syntax issues, no punctuation snafus—each of these sample college essays has been formatted and proofread perfectly. If this kind of exactness is not your strong suit, you’re in luck! All colleges advise applicants to have their essays looked over several times by parents, teachers, mentors, and anyone else who can spot a comma splice. Your essay must be your own work, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with getting help polishing it.

Links to Full College Essay Examples

Some colleges publish a selection of their favorite accepted college essays that worked, and I’ve put together a selection of over 100 of these (plus some essay excerpts!).

 

Common App Essay Samples

Please note that some of these college essay examples may be responding to prompts that are no longer in use. The current Common App prompts are as follows:

1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

2. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?

3. Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?

4. Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma – anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.

5. Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.

6. Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more?

7. Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you’ve already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design.

Analyzing Great Common App Essays That Worked

I’ve picked two essays from the examples collected above to examine in more depth so that you can see exactly what makes a successful college essay work. Full credit for these essays goes to the original authors and the schools that published them.

 

Example #1: “Breaking Into Cars,” by Stephen, Johns Hopkins Class of ’19  (Common App Essay, 636 words long)

I had never broken into a car before.

We were in Laredo, having just finished our first day at a Habitat for Humanity work site. The Hotchkiss volunteers had already left, off to enjoy some Texas BBQ, leaving me behind with the college kids to clean up. Not until we were stranded did we realize we were locked out of the van.

Someone picked a coat hanger out of the dumpster, handed it to me, and took a few steps back.

“Can you do that thing with a coat hanger to unlock it?”

“Why me?” I thought.

More out of amusement than optimism, I gave it a try. I slid the hanger into the window’s seal like I’d seen on crime shows, and spent a few minutes jiggling the apparatus around the inside of the frame. Suddenly, two things simultaneously clicked. One was the lock on the door. (I actually succeeded in springing it.) The other was the realization that I’d been in this type of situation before. In fact, I’d been born into this type of situation.

My upbringing has numbed me to unpredictability and chaos. With a family of seven, my home was loud, messy, and spottily supervised. My siblings arguing, the dog barking, the phone ringing—all meant my house was functioning normally. My Dad, a retired Navy pilot, was away half the time. When he was home, he had a parenting style something like a drill sergeant. At the age of nine, I learned how to clear burning oil from the surface of water. My Dad considered this a critical life skill—you know, in case my aircraft carrier should ever get torpedoed. “The water’s on fire! Clear a hole!” he shouted, tossing me in the lake without warning. While I’m still unconvinced about that particular lesson’s practicality, my Dad’s overarching message is unequivocally true: much of life is unexpected, and you have to deal with the twists and turns.

Living in my family, days rarely unfolded as planned. A bit overlooked, a little pushed around, I learned to roll with reality, negotiate a quick deal, and give the improbable a try. I don’t sweat the small stuff, and I definitely don’t expect perfect fairness. So what if our dining room table only has six chairs for seven people? Someone learns the importance of punctuality every night.

But more than punctuality and a special affinity for musical chairs, my family life has taught me to thrive in situations over which I have no power. Growing up, I never controlled my older siblings, but I learned how to thwart their attempts to control me. I forged alliances, and realigned them as necessary. Sometimes, I was the poor, defenseless little brother; sometimes I was the omniscient elder. Different things to different people, as the situation demanded. I learned to adapt.

Back then, these techniques were merely reactions undertaken to ensure my survival. But one day this fall, Dr. Hicks, our Head of School, asked me a question that he hoped all seniors would reflect on throughout the year: “How can I participate in a thing I do not govern, in the company of people I did not choose?”

The question caught me off guard, much like the question posed to me in Laredo. Then, I realized I knew the answer. I knew why the coat hanger had been handed to me.

Growing up as the middle child in my family, I was a vital participant in a thing I did not govern, in the company of people I did not choose. It’s family. It’s society. And often, it’s chaos. You participate by letting go of the small stuff, not expecting order and perfection, and facing the unexpected with confidence, optimism, and preparedness. My family experience taught me to face a serendipitous world with confidence.

 

What Makes This Essay Tick?

It’s very helpful to take writing apart in order to see just how it accomplishes its objectives. Stephen’s essay is very effective. Let’s find out why!

 

An Opening Line That Draws You In

I had never broken into a car before.

In just eight words, we get: scene-setting (he is standing next to a car about to break in), the idea of crossing a boundary (he is maybe about to do an illegal thing for the first time), and a cliffhanger (we are thinking: is he going to get caught? Is he headed for a life of crime? Is he about to be scared straight?).

 

Great, Detailed Opening Story

We were in Laredo, having just finished our first day at a Habitat for Humanity work site. The Hotchkiss volunteers had already left, off to enjoy some Texas BBQ, leaving me behind with the college kids to clean up. Not until we were stranded did we realize we were locked out of the van.

Someone picked a coat hanger out of the dumpster, handed it to me, and took a few steps back.

“Can you do that thing with a coat hanger to unlock it?”

“Why me?” I thought.

More out of amusement than optimism, I gave it a try. I slid the hanger into the window’s seal like I’d seen on crime shows, and spent a few minutes jiggling the apparatus around the inside of the frame.

It’s the details that really make this small experience come alive. Notice how whenever he can, Stephen uses a more specific, descriptive word in place of a more generic one. The volunteers aren’t going to get food or dinner; they’re going for “Texas BBQ.” The coat hanger comes from “a dumpster.” Stephen doesn’t just move the coat hanger—he “jiggles” it.

Details also help us visualize the emotions of the people in the scene. The person who hands Stephen the coat hanger isn’t just uncomfortable or nervous; he “takes a few steps back”—a description of movement that conveys feelings. Finally, the detail of actual speech makes the scene pop. Instead of writing that the other guy asked him to unlock the van, Stephen has the guy actually say his own words in a way that sounds like a teenager talking.

Turning a Specific Incident Into a Deeper Insight

Suddenly, two things simultaneously clicked. One was the lock on the door. (I actually succeeded in springing it.) The other was the realization that I’d been in this type of situation before. In fact, I’d been born into this type of situation.

Stephen makes the locked car experience a meaningful illustration of how he has learned to be resourceful and ready for anything, and he also makes this turn from the specific to the broad through an elegant play on the two meanings of the word “click.”

 

Using Concrete Examples When Making Abstract Claims

My upbringing has numbed me to unpredictability and chaos. With a family of seven, my home was loud, messy, and spottily supervised. My siblings arguing, the dog barking, the phone ringing—all meant my house was functioning normally.

“Unpredictability and chaos” are very abstract, not easily visualized concepts. They could also mean any number of things—violence, abandonment, poverty, mental instability. By instantly following up with highly finite and unambiguous illustrations like “family of seven” and “siblings arguing, the dog barking, the phone ringing,” Stephen grounds the abstraction in something that is easy to picture: a large, noisy family.

 

Using Small Bits of Humor and Casual Word Choice

My Dad, a retired Navy pilot, was away half the time. When he was home, he had a parenting style something like a drill sergeant. At the age of nine, I learned how to clear burning oil from the surface of water. My Dad considered this a critical life skill—you know, in case my aircraft carrier should ever get torpedoed.

Obviously, knowing how to clean burning oil is not high on the list of things every 9-year-old needs to know. To emphasize this, Stephen uses sarcasm by bringing up a situation that is clearly over-the-top: “in case my aircraft carrier should ever get torpedoed.”

The humor also feels relaxed. Part of this is because he introduces it with the colloquial phrase “you know,” so it sounds like he is talking to us in person. This approach also diffuses the potential discomfort of the reader with his father’s strictness—since he is making jokes about it, clearly he is OK. Notice, though, that this doesn’t occur very much in the essay. This helps keep the tone meaningful and serious rather than flippant.

 

“Mr. President? There’s been an oil spill!” “Then I want our best elementary school students on it, STAT.”

 

An Ending That Stretches the Insight Into the Future

But one day this fall, Dr. Hicks, our Head of School, asked me a question that he hoped all seniors would reflect on throughout the year: “How can I participate in a thing I do not govern, in the company of people I did not choose?”

The question caught me off guard, much like the question posed to me in Laredo. Then, I realized I knew the answer. I knew why the coat hanger had been handed to me.

Growing up as the middle child in my family, I was a vital participant in a thing I did not govern, in the company of people I did not choose. It’s family. It’s society. And often, it’s chaos. You participate by letting go of the small stuff, not expecting order and perfection, and facing the unexpected with confidence, optimism, and preparedness. My family experience taught me to face a serendipitous world with confidence.

The ending of the essay reveals that Stephen’s life has been one long preparation for the future. He has emerged from chaos and his dad’s approach to parenting as a person who can thrive in a world that he can’t control.

This connection of past experience to current maturity and self-knowledge is a key element in all successful personal essays. Colleges are very much looking for mature, self-aware applicants. These are the qualities of successful college students, who will be able to navigate the independence college classes require and the responsibility and quasi-adulthood of college life.

 

What Could This Essay Do Even Better?

Even the best essays aren’t perfect, and even the world’s greatest writers will tell you that writing is never “finished”—just “due.” So what would we tweak in this essay if we could? 

Replace some of the clichéd language. Stephen uses handy phrases like “twists and turns” and don’t sweat the small stuff” as a kind of shorthand for explaining his relationship to chaos and unpredictability. But using too many of these ready-made expressions runs the risk of clouding out your own voice and replacing it with something expected and boring. 

Use another example from recent life. Stephen’s first example (breaking into the van in Laredo) is a great illustration of being resourceful in an unexpected situation. But his essay also emphasizes that he “learned to adapt” by being “different things to different people.” It would be great to see how this plays out outside his family, either in the situation in Laredo or another context.

Example #2: By Bridget Collins,  Tufts Class of ’19 (Common App Essay, 608 words long)

I have always loved riding in cars. After a long day in first grade, I used to fall asleep to the engine purring in my mother’s Honda Odyssey, even though it was only a 5-minute drive home. As I grew, and graduated into the shotgun seat, it became natural and enjoyable to look out the window. Seeing my world passing by through that smudged glass, I would daydream what I could do with it.

In elementary school, I already knew my career path: I was going to be Emperor of the World. While I sat in the car and watched the miles pass by, I developed the plan for my empire. I reasoned that, for the world to run smoothly, it would have to look presentable. I would assign people, aptly named Fixer-Uppers, to fix everything that needed fixing. That old man down the street with chipping paint on his house would have a fresh coat in no time. The boy who accidentally tossed his Frisbee onto the roof of the school would get it back. The big pothole on Elm Street that my mother managed to hit every single day on the way to school would be filled-in. It made perfect sense! All the people that didn’t have a job could be Fixer-Uppers. I was like a ten-year-old FDR.

Seven years down the road, I still take a second glance at the sidewalk cracks and think of my Fixer-Uppers, but now I’m doing so from the driver’s seat. As much as I would enjoy it, I now accept that I won’t become Emperor of the World, and that the Fixer-Uppers will have to remain in my car ride imaginings. Or do they? I always pictured a Fixer-Upper as a smiling man in an orange T-Shirt. Maybe instead, a Fixer-Upper could be a tall girl with a deep love for Yankee Candles. Maybe it could be me.

Bridget the Fixer-Upper will be slightly different than the imaginary one who paints houses and fetches Frisbees. I was lucky enough to discover what I am passionate about when I was a freshman in high school. A self-admitted Phys. Ed. addict, I volunteered to help out with the Adapted PE class. On my first day, I learned that it was for developmentally-disabled students. To be honest, I was really nervous. I hadn’t had too much interaction with special needs students before, and wasn’t sure how to handle myself around them. Long story short, I got hooked. Three years have passed helping out in APE and eventually becoming a teacher in the Applied Behavior Analysis summer program. I love working with the students and watching them progress.

When senior year arrived, college meetings began, and my counselor asked me what I wanted to do for a career, I didn’t say Emperor of the World. Instead, I told him I wanted to become a board-certified behavior analyst. A BCBA helps develop learning plans for students with autism and other disabilities. Basically, I would get to do what I love for the rest of my life. He laughed and told me that it was a nice change that a seventeen-year-old knew so specifically what she wanted to do. I smiled, thanked him, and left. But it occurred to me that, while my desired occupation was decided, my true goal in life was still to become a Fixer-Upper. So, maybe I’ll be like Sue Storm and her alter-ego, the Invisible Woman. I’ll do one thing during the day, then spend my off-hours helping people where I can. Instead of flying like Sue, though, I’ll opt for a nice performance automobile. My childhood self would appreciate that.

 

What Makes This Essay Tick?

Bridget takes a somewhat different approach than Stephen, but her essay is just as detailed and engaging. Let’s go through some of the strengths of her essay.

 

A Structure That’s Easy to Follow and Understand

The essay is arranged chronologically. Bridget starts each paragraph with a clear signpost of where we are in time:

  • Paragraph 1: “after a long day in first grade”
  • Paragraph 2: “in elementary school”
  • Paragraph 3: “seven years down the road”
  • Paragraph 4: “when I was a freshman in high school”
  • Paragraph 5: “when senior year arrived”

This keeps the reader oriented without being distracting or gimmicky.

 

One Clear Governing Metaphor

I would assign people, aptly named Fixer-Uppers, to fix everything that needed fixing. That old man down the street with chipping paint on his house would have a fresh coat in no time. The boy who accidentally tossed his Frisbee onto the roof of the school would get it back.

Seven years down the road, I still take a second glance at the sidewalk cracks and think of my Fixer-Uppers, but now I’m doing so from the driver’s seat. As much as I would enjoy it, I now accept that I won’t become Emperor of the World, and that the Fixer-Uppers will have to remain in my car ride imaginings. Or do they? I always pictured a Fixer-Upper as a smiling man in an orange T-Shirt. Maybe instead, a Fixer-Upper could be a tall girl with a deep love for Yankee Candles. Maybe it could be me.

I wanted to become a board-certified behavior analyst. A BCBA helps develop learning plans for students with autism and other disabilities. Basically, I would get to do what I love for the rest of my life. …But it occurred to me that, while my desired occupation was decided, my true goal in life was still to become a Fixer-Upper.

What makes this essay fun to read is that Bridget takes a child’s idea of a world made better through quasi-magical helpers and turns it into a metaphor for the author’s future aspirations. It helps that the metaphor is a very clear one: people who work with students with disabilities are making the world better one abstract fix at a time, just like imaginary Fixer-Uppers would make the world better one concrete physical fix at a time.

An Engaging, Individual Voice

This essay uses many techniques that make Bridget sound genuine and make the reader feel like we already know her. 

Technique #1: humor. Notice Bridget’s gentle and relaxed humor that lightly mocks her younger self’s grand ambitions (this is different from the more sarcastic kind of humor used by Stephen in the first essay—you could never mistake one writer for the other).

In elementary school, I already knew my career path: I was going to be Emperor of the World.

I was like a ten-year-old FDR.

Technique #2: invented terminology. The second technique is the way Bridget coins her own terms, carrying them through the whole essay. It would be easy enough to simply describe the people she imagined in childhood as helpers or assistants, and to simply say that as a child she wanted to rule the world. Instead, she invents the capitalized (and thus official-sounding) titles “Fixer-Upper” and “Emperor of the World,” making these childish conceits at once charming and iconic. What’s also key is that the titles feed into the central metaphor of the essay, which keeps them from sounding like strange quirks that don’t go anywhere.

Technique #3: playing with syntax. The third technique is to use sentences of varying length, syntax, and structure. Most of the essay’s written in standard English and uses grammatically correct sentences. However, at key moments, Bridget emphasizes that the reader needs to sit up and pay attention by switching to short, colloquial, differently punctuated, and sometimes fragmented sentences.

The big pothole on Elm Street that my mother managed to hit every single day on the way to school would be filled-in. It made perfect sense! All the people that didn’t have a job could be Fixer-Uppers.

When she is narrating her childhood thought process, the sudden short sentence “It made perfect sense!” (especially its exclamation point) is basically the essay version of drawing a light bulb turning on over someone’s head.

As much as I would enjoy it, I now accept that I won’t become Emperor of the World, and that the Fixer-Uppers will have to remain in my car ride imaginings. Or do they?

Similarly, when the essay turns from her childhood imagination to her present-day aspirations, the turn is marked with “Or do they?”—a tiny and arresting half-sentence question.

Maybe instead, a Fixer-Upper could be a tall girl with a deep love for Yankee Candles. Maybe it could be me.

The first time when the comparison between magical fixer-upper’s and the future disability specialist is made is when Bridget turns her metaphor onto herself. The essay emphasizes the importance of the moment through repetition (two sentences structured similarly, both starting with the word “maybe”) and the use of a very short sentence: “Maybe it could be me.”

To be honest, I was really nervous. I hadn’t had too much interaction with special needs students before, and wasn’t sure how to handle myself around them. Long story short, I got hooked.

The last key moment that gets the small-sentence treatment is the emotional crux of the essay. As we watch Bridget go from nervously trying to help disabled students to falling in love with this specialty field, she undercuts the potential sappiness of the moment by relying on changed-up sentence length and slang: “Long story short, I got hooked.”

 


The best essays convey emotions just as clearly as this image.

 

What Could This Essay Do Even Better?

Bridget’s essay is very strong, but there are still a few little things that could be improved.

Explain the car connection better. The essay begins and ends with Bridget’s enjoying a car ride, but this doesn’t seem to be related either to the Fixer-Upper idea or to her passion for working with special-needs students. It would be great to either connect this into the essay more, or to take it out altogether and create more space for something else.

Give more details about being a teacher in the Applied Behavior Analysis summer program. It makes perfect sense that Bridget doesn’t want to put her students on display. It would take the focus off of her and possibly read as offensive or condescending. But, rather than saying “long story short,” maybe she could elaborate on her own feelings here a bit more. What is it about this kind of teaching that she loves? What is she hoping to bring to the lives of her future clients?

3 Essential Tips for Writing Your Own Essay

How can you use this discussion to better your own college essay? Here are some suggestions for ways to use this resource effectively.

 

#1: Read Other Essays to Get Ideas for Your Own

As you go through the essays we’ve compiled for you above, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Can you explain to yourself (or someone else!) why the opening sentence works well?
  • Look for the essay’s detailed personal anecdote. What senses is the author describing? Can you easily picture the scene in your mind’s eye?
  • Find the place where this anecdote bridges into a larger insight about the author. How does the essay connect the two? How does the anecdote work as an example of the author’s characteristic, trait, or skill?
  • Check out the essay’s tone. If it’s funny, can you find the places where the humor comes from? If it’s sad and moving, can you find the imagery and description of feelings that make you moved? If it’s serious, can you see how word choice adds to this tone?

Make a note whenever you find an essay or part of an essay that you think was particularly well-written, and think about what you like about it. Is it funny? Does it help you really get to know the writer? Does it show what makes the writer unique? Once you have your list, keep it next to you while writing your essay to remind yourself to try and use those same techniques in your own essay.

 

When you figure out how all the cogs fit together, you’ll be able to build your own … um … whatever this is.

 

#2: Find Your “A-Ha!” Moment

All of these essays rely on connecting with the reader through a heartfelt, highly descriptive scene from the author’s life. It can either be very dramatic (did you survive a plane crash?) or it can be completely mundane (did you finally beat your dad at Scrabble?). Either way, it should be personal and revealing about you, your personality, and the way you are now that you are entering the adult world.

 

#3: Start Early, Revise Often

Let me level with you: the best writing isn’t writing at all. It’s rewriting. And in order to have time to rewrite, you have to start way before the application deadline. My advice is to write your first draft at least two months before your applications are due.

Let it sit for a few days untouched. Then come back to it with fresh eyes and think critically about what you’ve written. What’s extra? What’s missing? What is in the wrong place? What doesn’t make sense? Don’t be afraid to take it apart and rearrange sections. Do this several times over, and your essay will be much better for it!

    1. Language and Composition

    Expert Advice:

    “I work in the admissions team that grades the AP English exam essays several years, and I can say there is no need to focus on the contemporary literature. The college boards do not consider most of the XX century authors. A student may cover just the most popular and top-rated pieces from the Middle English period – those authors are not regular guests in AP exams.”

    Lola Brendon, an AP English course teacher and expert online writer at JustDoMyHomework

    Practice AP English Exam Essay Example

    It is time to move to the Literature part of the examination, and have a look at other AP English exam essay examples of prompts. To get ready, experts recommend taking the time-tested steps:

    2. Train a lot by reading a prompt a few minutes before moving to the offered piece and before getting to write. Annotate it. Many students benefit from searching for the particular keywords & key phrases – they are helpful during the writing process.
    3. Annotate the passage by keeping in mind the chosen keys and major themes.

    AP English Language and Composition Exam Essay Prompts

    It is important to practice different AP English language exams, and composition essay prompts before joining the examination. One of the good examples might be a famous poem by Robert Frost:

    Nature’s first green is gold

    Her hardest hue to hold

    Her early leaf’s a flower

    But only so an hour

    Then leaf subsides to leaf,

    So Eden sank to grief

    So dawn goes down to day

    Nothing gold can stay.

    CLICK TO GET HELP RIGHT AWAY

    After reading & analyzing this piece, think about the answers to multiple-choice questions.

    1. A rhyme in the given literary piece is present to:
    • Allow easier reading
    • Taking part in a literary convention
    • Expanding a simile
    • Developing imagery
    1. Eden in the line number 6 stands for:
    • The mourning
    • Religious aspect of the author
    • Woman with the same name
    • Judeo-Christian approach
    1. Under ‘Nothing gold…,” what do you understand?
    • Wealth is transient
    • People are evil by their nature
    • Gold tarnishes without special efforts
    • Things that are good will remain this way
    1. Pick a sentence, which reflects the essence of the mood in the offered text?
    • The underlying mood is exciting & fun

Pretend the offered structure is villanelle and try to come up with the original explanation of its reflection of the work. Cover such aspects as repetitiveness.

    5 Reasons Why India is Still a Developing Country

    Economics Discussion

    Economics Discussion
    Discuss Anything About Economics

    India as a less Developed Country

    Article Shared by

    ADVERTISEMENTS:

    The Indian economy is currently a less developed economy.

    All the features of an under- developed economy were still present in India right at the time of freedom and have not changed much till today.

    (i) Poor Per Capita (Per Head) Income:

    On the basis of per capital income, India is considered as one of the poor countries in the world. The poverty and backwardness India had inherited from the British rule. In order to give ‘Big Push’ to the standstill still economy, the government adopted the technique of ‘democratic’ planning’. However, India still remains one of the most underdeveloped countries in respect of per capita income. According to World Development Report 2005, India was one of the forty-six low income countries in 2003.

    ADVERTISEMENTS:

    In the group of low income economies eight countries had higher per capita GNP (Gross National Product) than India. In 2003 India’s Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) estimate of GNP per capita was as low as $2,880. It was 1/13th GNP per capita as compared to USA, or 1/10th GNP per capita as compared to any developed economy.

    According to the Planning Commission, the average daily calorie intake per head is 2400 for rural area, 2100 for urban area and 2250 for overall India. If a person fails to consume this calorie, he is considered as below poverty line. Thus, according to recent statistics one out of three Indians is a poor person.

    (ii) Inequality of Income and High Poverty:

    In India, distribution of income and wealth is unequal. Private ownership leads to concentration of wealth in few hands. Income inequalities result from concentration of capital and wealth. According to World Development Report 2000/2001, the bottom 40% of households in India only spent 19.7 % of total household-expenditure, whereas top 20% of households shared 46% of the same.

    The] middle 40% only shared 34.3% of the household expenditure. The Gini Lorenz Ratio (an index of measuring inequality of income) was 0.378 in 1997 as against 0.297 in 1994. The problem of mass poverty is the sure outcome of income inequalities. According to the Planning Commission, the overall percentage below poverty line was 36 in 1993- 94, while 37.3 and 32.4 in rural and urban areas respectively. The latest estimates said that the percentage of population below poverty line is still very high.

    (iii) High Dependence on Agriculture:

    ADVERTISEMENTS:

    In India, occupational distribution is not at all up to the mark and clearly shows the economic backwardness. In 1951 about 69.7% of the total working population was engaged in primary (agricultural) sector. The figure had little improved in 1991, which was about 64.9% of total working population employed in agriculture occupation.

    India is an Argo-based economy. In 2001, contribution of agriculture to the Gross Domestic Product (GNP) was 24%. This again came down to 237o recently. Table 1 is based on GDP by industry origin in 2001 for selected countries of developed and underdeveloped economies.

    Gross Domestic Product by Industry of Origin

    (iv) Rapid Population Growth:

    India is an overpopulated country. Population in India has been growing at a fast rate. According to 2001 census, the population of India is 1,025 million as against 439 million in 1961. Recently, India’s population growth rate had increased about 2.14% per year. India at present is passing through second stage of demographic transition, which is supported by decline in birth rate and falling death rate. This leads to population explosion in India. This has also resulted in high dependency ratio,

    (v) Low Level of Human Development:

    According to United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), human development can be measured in terms of Human Development Index (HDD. HDI is a composition of three basic indicators like,

    (a) Life Expectancy at Birth;

    (b) Educational Attainment (Adult Literacy Rate and Gross Enrolment Ratio); and

    (c) Real per Capita GDP.

    The maximum and minimum values of HDI lie between zero and one. According to Human Development Report, 2004, we can Prepare Table 2.

    ADVERTISEMENTS:

    HDI Value and Ranking of Selected Countries

    From Table 2, it is clear that India with a HDI value of 0.595 ranks a lowly 127 in terms of HDI.

    (vi) Unemployment:

    The most important feature of Indian economy is widespread unemployment. According to NSSO (National Sample Survey Organization) surveys, India’s unemployment can be estimated in three concepts: the usual status, the weekly status and the daily status. The usual status shows only open unemployment.

    According to 55th Round of the NSSO 1999- 2000, the current daily status of unemployment rates for urban and rural workers were 7.70% and 7.20% respectively. According to the Planning Commission, 2001-02, the total daily status unemployment was 3.49 crores. In India the chronic unemployment results in the structural disorder in the economy. Urban unemployment in India is mainly of three types: educational, structural and frictional, whereas rural unemployment is of two types: disguised and seasonal.

    (vii) Shortage of Capital:

    Capital formation plays a vital role for the economic development of a country. Accumulation of capital helps a country to overcome economic backwardness. In 1950- 51, the gross saving-investment rate of India was about 8.9%. In 2001-02, the rates of gross domestic saving and gross domestic capital formation were estimated to be 24.0% and 23.7% respectively. However, these rates are not adequate, hence, the economic growth rate is not up to the mark, compared to other developed nations, the capital formation in India is still far behind.

    (viii) Primitive Technology:

    In India, technologies used for different types of production are very much primitive and backward in nature. Although India is an agro- based economy but still large portion of the cultivable land are without irrigation facilities. Primitive and outdated techniques are still used by the farmers for cultivating crops and vegetables.

    In large-scale industries modern techniques are used for producing different capital and consumer goods. However, in small-scale and tiny scale industries still primitive methods of production are going on. In terms of using modern and sophisticated techniques of production, India is far behind the developed countries.

    (ix) Low Entrepreneurship Capabilities:

    India is suffering with the problem low entrepreneurship capabilities. Lack of efficient and risk-taking entrepreneurs is one of the important reason behind the slow rate of economic growth in India. In India the number of capable private entrepreneurs are too less compared in to developed countries like USA. UK, France etc. Most of Indian industrialists are concentrating on short-term profits rather than long-run development. Except IT- sector, the number of efficient industrialists are much in all the other sectors of production. According to Joseph A. Schumpeter India is lagging far behind in innovating entrepreneurs.

    1. Corruption

    corruption Image Source

    Corruption leads to an increase in the transaction cost. Corruption also decreases the efficiency and does not allow the development of a healthy market. Corruption is a big hurdle in the growth of the country. Due to corruption foreign investors show lack of interest in doing business in India. Scams are unearthed every now and then in our country. These scams are impacting FDI inflow.

    India must show zero tolerance towards corruption, bribery and social evils. Every Indian must understand his or her responsibility towards nation. No one should look for an easy way and must stand against bribery.

    • Caught by a traffic cop? Give him a 100 Rupee note, he will oblige.
    • Want to process your file first in a Government organization? Just wink at the babu and pass on the money from below the table.
    • Roads in India have a life of just about 5 years, whereas roads built in developed countries last for about 20 years. Why? Because the contractor uses cheap material and fills up his pocket.

     

    2. Internal commotion

    indian_languages Image Source

    Though we are a country that speaks over 20 different languages, we are not united on a single language. Migration between states becomes more difficult that migrating to a different country. A person coming from a nearby state is often treated as a foreigner to their “land”.

    During the early days of Independent India, there were some “initiatives” to make Hindi the common language of India. Somehow, it has not got widespread acceptance at least in the Southern states. Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew was brilliant. Though the country had predominantly higher Chinese population, he did not force the others to learn Chinese. Instead all of them learnt English and accepted English as the link language. But unfortunately it did not happen like that in India. Hindi, which was spoken only in three states (UP, MP and Haryana) was imposed on the remaining 22 states just because Jawaharlal Nehru was from UP. As a result, till date, we fight among states owing to lack of unity. To this date, the central govt is pushing everyone to learn this language by various means. For example, to enter politics, it’s mandatory to know Hindi. To ace the IAS, it’s mandatory to know Hindi and so on. This has only incited a feeling of hatred and not unity as the govt expected it to be.

     

    3. High income inequality

    Maharashtra boasts that it’s the richest state in India in terms of GDP per capita. But I doubt that. If we ask Ambani’s family, Salman Khan and Sachin Tendulkar to migrate to Bihar, then probably Bihar could become the richest state. According to World bank, anyone living with less than 2US$ a day is deemed to be struck with poverty and according to that statistics, over 80% (or approximately 800 million) people live with income of < ₹100 a day. What did the government do to uplift them? I fear none. But, Yes, it did one smart Math. According to India, anyone earning less that 0.4$ a day (₹15 a day) is deemed to be poverty struck and by this figure, only 30% of Indians are poor. This 0.4$ is calculated using nominal GDP by India. But owing to very high inflation nominal GDP figures is often misleading. In fact India is third richest (richer than Japan) country in terms of nominal GDP which shows the extent of misleads nominal GDP calculations can have.

     

    4. Lack of Literacy and Knowledge

    When Kerala has a whopping 100% literacy, other states should learn from it and try to implement a similar system in their state. But our tendency is, “Why should we imitate that puny little state? My state is great.”

     

    5. No Cleanliness

    People eat ghutka, tobacco and spit wherever they want. People pee at any place they find suitable. Every locality has a garbage heap dumped somewhere. People are so smart, they will always throw garbage outside the garbage bin, and never inside it. Littering is built into Indian citizens. Little children throw chocolate wrappers on the road. People eat banana and throw its skin on the road.

    There are multiple other reasons for why India is still a developing country. However the major contributors are listed above.

    History

    Writing a Thesis and Making an Argument

    Almost every assignment you complete for a history course will ask you to make an argument. Your instructors will often call this your “thesis” — your position on a subject.

    What is an Argument?

    An argument takes a stand on an issue. It seeks to persuade an audience of a point of view in much the same way that a lawyer argues a case in a court of law. It is NOT a description or a summary.

    • This is an argument: “This paper argues that the movie JFK is inaccurate in its portrayal of President Kennedy.”
    • This is not an argument: “In this paper, I will describe the portrayal of President Kennedy that is shown in the movie JFK.”
    What is a Thesis?

    A thesis statement is a sentence in which you state an argument about a topic and then describe, briefly, how you will prove your argument.

    • This is an argument, but not yet a thesis: “The movie ‘JFK’ inaccurately portrays President Kennedy.”
    • This is a thesis: “The movie ‘JFK’ inaccurately portrays President Kennedy because of the way it ignores Kennedy’s youth, his relationship with his father, and the findings of the Warren Commission.”

    A thesis makes a specific statement to the reader about what you will be trying to argue. Your thesis can be a few sentences long, but should not be longer than a paragraph. Do not begin to state evidence or use examples in your thesis paragraph.

    A Thesis Helps You and Your Reader

    Your blueprint for writing:

    • Helps you determine your focus and clarify your ideas.
    • Provides a “hook” on which you can “hang” your topic sentences.
    • Can (and should) be revised as you further refine your evidence and arguments. New evidence often requires you to change your thesis.
    • Gives your paper a unified structure and point.

    Your reader’s blueprint for reading:

    • Serves as a “map” to follow through your paper.
    • Keeps the reader focused on your argument.
    • Signals to the reader your main points.
    • Engages the reader in your argument.
    Tips for Writing a Good Thesis
    • Find a Focus: Choose a thesis that explores an aspect of your topic that is important to you, or that allows you to say something new about your topic. For example, if your paper topic asks you to analyze women’s domestic labor during the early nineteenth century, you might decide to focus on the products they made from scratch at home.
    • Look for Pattern: After determining a general focus, go back and look more closely at your evidence. As you re-examine your evidence and identify patterns, you will develop your argument and some conclusions. For example, you might find that as industrialization increased, women made fewer textiles at home, but retained their butter and soap making tasks.
    Strategies for Developing a Thesis Statement

    Idea 1. If your paper assignment asks you to answer a specific question, turn the question into an assertion and give reasons for your opinion.

    Assignment: How did domestic labor change between 1820 and 1860? Why were the changes in their work important for the growth of the United States?

    Beginning thesis: Between 1820 and 1860 women’s domestic labor changed as women stopped producing home-made fabric, although they continued to sew their families’ clothes, as well as to produce butter and soap. With the cash women earned from the sale of their butter and soap they purchased ready-made cloth, which in turn, helped increase industrial production in the United States before the Civil War.

    Idea 2. Write a sentence that summarizes the main idea of the essay you plan to write.

    Main Idea: Women’s labor in their homes during the first half of the nineteenth century contributed to the growth of the national economy.

    Idea 3. Spend time “mulling over” your topic. Make a list of the ideas you want to include in the essay, then think about how to group them under several different headings. Often, you will see an organizational plan emerge from the sorting process.

    Idea 4.Use a formula to develop a working thesis statement (which you will need to revise later). Here are a few examples:

    1. Although most readers of ______ have argued that ______, closer examination shows that ______.
    2.  ______ uses ______ and ______ to prove that ______.
    3. Phenomenon X is a result of the combination of ______, ______, and ______.

    These formulas share two characteristics all thesis statements should have: they state an argument and they reveal how you will make that argument. They are not specific enough, however, and require more work.

    Refine

    As you work on your essay, your ideas will change and so will your thesis. Here are examples of weak and strong thesis statements.

    • Unspecific thesis: “Eleanor Roosevelt was a strong leader as First Lady.”  This thesis lacks an argument. Why was Eleanor Roosevelt a strong leader?
    • Specific thesis: “Eleanor Roosevelt recreated the role of the First Lady by her active political leadership in the Democratic Party, by lobbying for national legislation, and by fostering women’s leadership in the Democratic Party.”  The second thesis has an argument: Eleanor Roosevelt “recreated” the position of First Lady, and a three-part structure with which to demonstrate just how she remade the job.
    • Unspecific thesis: “At the end of the nineteenth century French women lawyers experienced difficulty when they attempted to enter the legal profession.”  No historian could argue with this general statement and uninteresting thesis.
    • Specific thesis: “At the end of the nineteenth century French women lawyers experienced misogynist attacks from male lawyers when they attempted to enter the legal profession because male lawyers wanted to keep women out of judgeships.”  This thesis statement asserts that French male lawyers attacked French women lawyers because they feared women as judges, an intriguing and controversial point.
    Making an Argument– Every Thesis Deserves Its Day in Court

    You are the best (and only!) advocate for your thesis. Your thesis is defenseless without you to prove that its argument holds up under scrutiny. The jury (i.e., your reader) will expect you, as a good lawyer, to provide evidence to prove your thesis. To prove thesis statements on historical topics, what evidence can an able young lawyer use?

    • Primary sources: letters, diaries, government documents, an organization’s meeting minutes, newspapers.
    • Secondary sources: articles and books from your class that explain and interpret the historical event or person you are writing about, lecture notes, films or documentaries.

    How can you use this evidence?

    • Make sure the examples you select from your available evidence address your thesis.
    • Use evidence that your reader will believe is credible. This means sifting and sorting your sources, looking for the clearest and fairest. Be sure to identify the biases and shortcomings of each piece of evidence for your reader.
    • Use evidence to avoid generalizations. If you assert that all women have been oppressed, what evidence can you use to support this? Using evidence works to check over-general statements.
    • Use evidence to address an opposing point of view. How do your sources give examples that refute another historian’s interpretation?

    Remember — if in doubt, talk to your instructor.

      Defining the Thesis Statement

      What is a thesis statement?

      Every paper you write should have a main point, a main idea, or central message. The argument(s) you make in your paper should reflect this main idea. The sentence that captures your position on this main idea is what we call a thesis statement.

      How long does it need to be?

      A thesis statement focuses your ideas into one or two sentences. It should present the topic of your paper and also make a comment about your position in relation to the topic. Your thesis statement should tell your reader what the paper is about and also help guide your writing and keep your argument focused.

      Questions to Ask When Formulating Your Thesis

      You should provide a thesis early in your essay — in the introduction, or in longer essays in the second paragraph — in order to establish your position and give your reader a sense of direction.

      Tip: In order to write a successful thesis statement:

      • Avoid burying a great thesis statement in the middle of a paragraph or late in the paper.
      • Be as clear and as specific as possible; avoid vague words.
      • Indicate the point of your paper but avoid sentence structures like, “The point of my paper is…”

      Is your thesis statement specific?

      Your thesis statement should be as clear and specific as possible. Normally you will continue to refine your thesis as you revise your argument(s), so your thesis will evolve and gain definition as you obtain a better sense of where your argument is taking you.

      Tip: Check your thesis:

      • Are there two large statements connected loosely by a coordinating conjunction (i.e. “and,” “but,” “or,” “for,” “nor,” “so,” “yet”)?
      • Would a subordinating conjunction help (i.e. “through,” “although,” “because,” “since”) to signal a relationship between the two sentences?
      • Or do the two statements imply a fuzzy unfocused thesis?
      • If so, settle on one single focus and then proceed with further development.

      Is your thesis statement too general?

      Your thesis should be limited to what can be accomplished in the specified number of pages. Shape your topic so that you can get straight to the “meat” of it. Being specific in your paper will be much more successful than writing about general things that do not say much. Don’t settle for three pages of just skimming the surface.

      The opposite of a focused, narrow, crisp thesis is a broad, sprawling, superficial thesis. Compare this original thesis (too general) with three possible revisions (more focused, each presenting a different approach to the same topic):

      • Original thesis:
        • There are serious objections to today’s horror movies.
      • Revised theses:
        • Because modern cinematic techniques have allowed filmmakers to get more graphic, horror flicks have desensitized young American viewers to violence.
        • The pornographic violence in “bloodbath” slasher movies degrades both men and women.
        • Today’s slasher movies fail to deliver the emotional catharsis that 1930s horror films did.

      Is your thesis statement clear?

      Your thesis statement is no exception to your writing: it needs to be as clear as possible. By being as clear as possible in your thesis statement, you will make sure that your reader understands exactly what you mean.

      Tip: In order to be as clear as possible in your writing:

      • Unless you’re writing a technical report, avoid technical language. Always avoid jargon, unless you are confident your audience will be familiar with it.
      • Avoid vague words such as “interesting,” “negative,” “exciting,” “unusual,” and “difficult.”
      • Avoid abstract words such as “society,” “values,” or “culture.”

      These words tell the reader next to nothing if you do not carefully explain what you mean by them. Never assume that the meaning of a sentence is obvious. Check to see if you need to define your terms (”socialism,” “conventional,” “commercialism,” “society”), and then decide on the most appropriate place to do so. Do not assume, for example, that you have the same understanding of what “society” means as your reader. To avoid misunderstandings, be as specific as possible.

      Compare the original thesis (not specific and clear enough) with the revised version (much more specific and clear):

      • Original thesis: Although the timber wolf is a timid and gentle animal, it is being systematically exterminated. [if it’s so timid and gentle — why is it being exterminated?]
      • Revised thesis: Although the timber wolf is actually a timid and gentle animal, it is being systematically exterminated because people wrongfully believe it to be a fierce and cold-blooded killer.

      Does your thesis include a comment about your position on the issue at hand?

      The thesis statement should do more than merely announce the topic; it must reveal what position you will take in relation to that topic, how you plan to analyze/evaluate the subject or the issue. In short, instead of merely stating a general fact or resorting to a simplistic pro/con statement, you must decide what it is you have to say.

      Tips:

      • Avoid merely announcing the topic; your original and specific “angle” should be clear. In this way you will tell your reader why your take on the issue matters.
        • Original thesis: In this paper, I will discuss the relationship between fairy tales and early childhood.
        • Revised thesis: Not just empty stories for kids, fairy tales shed light on the psychology of young children.
      • Avoid making universal or pro/con judgments that oversimplify complex issues.
        • Original thesis: We must save the whales.
        • Revised thesis: Because our planet’s health may depend upon biological diversity, we should save the whales.
      • When you make a (subjective) judgment call, specify and justify your reasoning. “Just because” is not a good reason for an argument.
        • Original thesis: Socialism is the best form of government for Kenya.
        • Revised thesis: If the government takes over industry in Kenya, the industry will become more efficient.
      • Avoid merely reporting a fact. Say more than what is already proven fact. Go further with your ideas. Otherwise… why would your point matter?
        • Original thesis: Hoover’s administration was rocked by scandal.
        • Revised thesis: The many scandals of Hoover’s administration revealed basic problems with the Republican Party’s nominating process.

      Do not expect to come up with a fully formulated thesis statement before you have finished writing the paper. The thesis will inevitably change as you revise and develop your ideas—and that is ok! Start with a tentative thesis and revise as your paper develops.

      Is your thesis statement original?

      Avoid, avoid, avoid generic arguments and formula statements. They work well to get a rough draft started, but will easily bore a reader. Keep revising until the thesis reflects your real ideas.

      Tip: The point you make in the paper should matter:

      • Be prepared to answer “So what?” about your thesis statement.
      • Be prepared to explain why the point you are making is worthy of a paper. Why should the reader read it?

      Compare the following:

      • Original thesis:
        • There are advantages and disadvantages to using statistics. (a fill-in-the-blank formula)
      • Revised theses:
        • Careful manipulation of data allows a researcher to use statistics to support any claim she desires.
        • In order to ensure accurate reporting, journalists must understand the real significance of the statistics they report.
        • Because advertisers consciously and unconsciously manipulate data, every consumer should learn how to evaluate statistical claims.

      Avoid formula and generic words. Search for concrete subjects and active verbs, revising as many “to be” verbs as possible. A few suggestions below show how specific word choice sharpens and clarifies your meaning.

      • Original: “Society is…” [who is this “society” and what exactly is it doing?]
      • Revised: “Men and women will learn how to…,” “writers can generate…,” “television addicts may chip away at…,” “American educators must decide…,” “taxpayers and legislators alike can help fix…”
      • Original: “the media”
      • Revised: “the new breed of television reporters,” “advertisers,” “hard-hitting print journalists,” “horror flicks,” “TV movies of the week,” “sitcoms,” “national public radio,” “Top 40 bop-til-you-drop…”
      • Original: “is, are, was, to be” or “to do, to make”
      • Revised: any great action verb you can concoct: “to generate,” “to demolish,” “to batter,” “to revolt,” “to discover,” “to flip,” “to signify,” “to endure…”

      Use your own words in thesis statements; avoid quoting. Crafting an original, insightful, and memorable thesis makes a distinct impression on a reader. You will lose credibility as a writer if you become only a mouthpiece or a copyist; you will gain credibility by grabbing the reader with your own ideas and words.

      A well-crafted thesis statement reflects well-crafted ideas. It signals a writer who has intelligence, commitment, and enthusiasm.

      TERA PC – General Discussion #11 dinners 01/26/2016, 01:53 PM
      Sorc
      1. Lowest HP
      2. Weakest Defense.
      3. A range class. But, the main skill nova and flame pilar attack range is 5m~8m.
      4. Fireblast- Sorc the must skill requires moving cancel before Iframe. Sorc can’t use iframe during fireblast. Yay.
      5. The best part is 1 hit ko by hardmode boss. Yah. even Healers can take 1~2 hits. But, sorc means that, getting 1 hit by boss = dead.
      6. Now, BHS knows that cloth defense is way too weak for hardmode boss. The new elin ninja class is cloth defense. BHS is going to reduce defense gap between metal and cloth wear.
      7. Sorc is most exciting class. Sorc is a melee dps and have to evade all boss attack.

      Well Elin can be all the classes accept brawler, and gunner, so I guess the answer for you would be gunner and brawler.

      TERA PC – General Discussion #18 Jerichow 01/26/2016, 11:45 PM
      I don’t have a particular favorite that stands out above the others but…

      Lancer is my go-to for fun. If your computer can maintain the frame rate, then you’re basically the one-man/woman front line for your team. You’re going to go blow-for-blow with any number of bosses and there are times where the entire team is going to depend on you keeping that boss locked on you like a bull charging a red flag. Frankly, that rush is what makes me pick up my lancer before any other class.

      Now if you want something a little less in-your-face intense, but still want that thrill of knowing the team relies on you heavily, then the Priest is my second go-to recommended character. Snatching an about-to-die teammate from a boss’s next attack right before the hammer comes down and bringing their HP back up to 100% before sending them back off into the fight never gets old.

      And aside from fast queues for Instance Matching, I have had more people complement me and commend me on keeping the whole team alive in a terrible situation than I’ve ever been thanked for doing a good job keeping a boss positioned as a Lancer.

      It may sound cheesy, but being told you’re a kick [filtered] healer and getting straight up thanked in chat for it is pretty awesome when you’ve had to suffer through a dungeon with a bad healer before, and you know that that person really is thankful.

      TERA PC – General Discussion #19 ph3s 01/26/2016, 11:47 PM
      Gunner obviously. Sorc is fun if you learn to dodge. Mystic is great fun, tho i wish they buff that class and buff it good.

      However, to be on topic, I ;oke any melee class. So far I enjoy Brawler, Zerker and Warrior in that order.

      TERA PC – General Discussion #22 Mnz 01/27/2016, 12:34 AM
      Priest!

      TERA PC – General Discussion #23 AwesomeTaro 01/27/2016, 12:56 AM
      Lancer, even though some bosses are aids (looking at you Kalivan).
      Trying to squeeze in attacks every gap is fun, along with big wallop crits.
      And with an aman you can get 100% dmg reduction lel

      Priest/Mystic because healing is fun. Priest if you wanna be able to carry trap pts.
      Mystics if you’re running with more skilled people.

      Archer because animation cancelling. Sorc because lots of key smashing.

      TERA PC – General Discussion #26 Cyborq 01/27/2016, 02:23 AM
      Although my main is Slayer, which so far has been my favorite DPS class, I am really enjoying my Priest as well. Just have to ~git gud~. :]

      Pondering on rolling a sorc, although they are usually the biggest pain to heal in dungeons along with reapers. X~X

      TERA PC – General Discussion #27 MarcioSilva 01/27/2016, 02:27 AM
      Sorc! 😀

      And no, no trolling here 😀 I really love playing sorc and its very fun to!

      Cyborq, sorcs are not always the biggest pain to heal; I’ve seen brawlers dying for nothing, lancers not blocking and acting like mana sponges, much worse than a good sorc:) True is a class not easy to master, but depending on the player, can be much much more fun than others 😀

      Gunner may be fun too, but with the “meh” factor. I mean, they kill mobs so easy it looses the fun part.

      TERA PC – General Discussion #28 Cyborq 01/27/2016, 02:52 AM
      Yeah, I know not all sorcs are bad and hard to heal, but when I’m pugging or IMing, I usually (and I use this term losely) have the biggest probelm with Sorcs and Reapers.
      Ofcourse I’ve had my fair share of Brawlers too that just facetank and don’t seem to give a crap about blocking correctly… and lose half their health on one strike in KDNM on first boss.

      Know what I’ve noticed too? It’s like they try to be in the way of that cross attack he does (slams on the ground 4 times in every direction, turning clockwise) it’s a wonder! x’D

      TERA PC – General Discussion #29 MarcioSilva 01/27/2016, 03:05 AM
      If you want the fun factor, how about an Akasha Hideout run with 3 brawlers + 1 priest? I was on my slayer…. ALL brawlers died at one point, and not by priest fault, me in a squishy slayer was getting along well with no HP issues 😛

      I was tanking one of the bosses (not even the last one) while the priest ressed the brawlers!

      NONE of them had the holy pot needed on that dungeon, only me and the priest…

      But yeah, it was fun to play slayer in that dungeon 😀 LOL

      TERA PC – General Discussion #30 Cyborq 01/27/2016, 03:22 AM
      Already ran a faceroll run in KDNM with 3 Brawlers and one other dps (don’t remember the class now but I think it was a Slayer, actually.)
      I was trying to give them all tips and asking them to try and use block/dodge the mechs that drained over 50% of the HP with one hit… when I was trying to explain at last boss about the lightning one of them just started “screaming” (caps and such) at me to shut up. I said I was just trying to help and his reply was “I NEED YOU TO HEAL, THAT’S THE HELP I NEED FROM YOU!”…
      At least the other two Brawlers had the decency to keep quiet…

      Come to think of it, the worst attitude (and illiteracy) I get is usually from Brawlers and Reapers…

      What a horrible brawler. I despise people like this. And tanking as a brawler is the easiest to tank with. So many blocking attacks… And if you are trying to help by giving tips and they act this way… Unacceptable. He couldve just said ty for the advice…

      I main mystic and ive had my fair share of this. I remember when i was levelling my other alt mystic, i tried giving advice also since they were obviously new, and he told me to f* off. I said i needed the gear and he still rolled for it..and got it… So i waited to go to the next boss, and stopped healing the fool til he died. Never resd him. Told the team, kick me or kick him, it doesnt matter which. Obviously the team kicked the other guy. Jerks these days…

      Yeah.. I consider myself a fairly polite person. It’s not like I was screaming at them that “they are noobs, they should learn how to play, delete the game ~etc” like a lot of people do…
      I was simply asking them to try and use their block feature correctly and evade the attacks that are.. not blockable? (I never really leveled a Brawler in this hype so I am not sure about this, but I am guessing some mechs are not blockable…?)

      The guy didn’t really start raging until right before they ran in to face Kalivan (last boss in KDNM) so I didn’t really bother asking them to kick me or the douche. I just ignored his stupidity and didn’t let him ruin my mood.
      Focused more on the other three and didn’t give a flying fack when he got pulverized by Kalivans charge. Not my problem!~ ^^

      You see, it’s not the class…..it’s the frustrated kid behind the keyboard. That person can be any class.

      It’s more like: “I don’t like arrogant, rude players and trolls” rather than “I don’t like this class because they are arrogant, rude players and trolls”.

      I hope we meet in a dungeon at some point. Despite my suggestive name, I’m really nice in groups 🙂

      TERA PC – General Discussion #40 Arugess 01/28/2016, 05:13 AM
      I think I’ll have to jump on the sorcerer train. It’s definitely not the easiest class to play, but like others have said – playing a glass cannon is a lot of fun.

      Gunner is the least frustrating, and quite fun as well.

      Once you get the hang of Brawler you’re pretty running around breaking the game. But its not as fun with the cheat codes on.

      My overall favorite class is still Lancer though – for the overall playstyle and for what the class represents (to me the Paladin class of the game).

      You see, it’s not the class…..it’s the frustrated kid behind the keyboard. That person can be any class.

      It’s more like: “I don’t like arrogant, rude players and trolls” rather than “I don’t like this class because they are arrogant, rude players and trolls”.

      I hope we meet in a dungeon at some point. Despite my suggestive name, I’m really nice in groups 🙂

      Oh, no no. You completely misunderstand. I KNOW it’s not the class itself, or even the race *cough elins cough* 😛

      I know it’s the people, I’m just saying the majority in MY experience.
      But of course, there are ~usually~ explanations for everything. Here are some that might apply:

      Sorcs are squishy, and hard to master. So I guess that’s why sorcs can be a pain to heal.
      Reapers are still learning the class when they start to hit endgame dungeons since they.. almost basically start at level 60..
      Brawlers are the flavor of the month.. and there are bound to be bad ones, I have just had SO many experiences with not only playing-the-class-bad but rude and downright a-hole brawlers.

      Why don’t I meet so many Berserkers or Archers that are so apparently unpleasant? Well, there just aren’t as many players rolling those classes…

      I can also tell you that the race I find the most rude and annoying ~most~ of the time is Elins… why?
      Because there are so many of them. And when I started playing the game the race stuck out like a sore thumb TO ME because of the playerbase..

      TERA PC – General Discussion #42 JinxyKat39 01/28/2016, 08:06 AM
      I love sorc..hard to master but challenging. Mystics are really fun too. Would love to cap a priest, but so far have gotten half way there and pooped out. I need a priestly mentor, i think. On the topic of brawler, yes, they are stupidly OP but i did roll one to check it out (the small skill set classes like gunner and brawler are easy on my crippled hands, so i do like that part at least) but you can’t judge people based on the class they play, only their character. I’ve been playing Tera a long time and have met jerks of all classes. The problem i think is more the influx of new players (seemingly kids, no less) that jump on the FOTM classes and then think they’re Gods.

To us, custom means an order done for a particular customer. And that is what our professional company does, writing an essay from scratch for our customers to fit the exact details that they had requested. So, if you decided to order online essay writing help, you should find the best for yourself.

      Descriptive Essay on My Mother

      By Lauren Bradshaw

      June 5, 2014

      Sample Essays

      My mother is without doubt the most important person in my life and the most complete individual I know.

      She is very beautiful and has the kindest eyes that I have ever seen. She not only worked hard to ensure that I had a good upbringing, but was also very strict and often punished me whenever I went wrong. Even though I did not like the punishment then, I now look back and realize that it was meant to lovingly correct me and help me to follow the right path when growing up.

      My siblings and I have always taken pride in the appearance of our mother, especially her lovely long hair. I remember whenever my mother came to visit us at school, other pupils would urge us to ask our mother to remove the pins from her hair so they could see the long well-kept hair. Even though I have seen very many beautiful people, very few ladies match the beauty of my mother.

      One of the reasons I and my siblings were especially fond of my mother is the way she used to take great care of us, especially when we were ill. She is a very knowledgeable lady who made a variety of home remedies to help take care of the minor illnesses that we had as children. Her motherly love also extended to the animals in the farm, especially the chickens. My mother would always check on the chickens and give them medicine whenever she determined that they had some ailment.

      My siblings and I did not like to see our mother sad and would do just about anything to bring a smile to her face. Interestingly, even when she was very worried or sad about something, she would always smile to make us stop worrying about her. My mother not only loved those around her, but was also compassionate. We often observed her compassion towards our neighbors, especially when a new neighbor moved in or when one of the neighbors was going through a hard time. My mother would sacrifice her time to go to a needy neighbor with a hot bowl of a soup that would instantly make the neighbor feel appreciated.

      My mother was a good cook who always left us looking forward to the next meal. She knew how to mix the right ingredients to end up with a meal that often left us licking our fingers. Just the memory of the foods that my mother prepared for us makes me salivate to this present day.

      Tips on writing a descriptive essay about mother:

      how to write a descriptive essay

      A descriptive essay is a type of essay that allows you to describe something and to paint a picture for the reader in words.

      Detailed Steps to Writing a Descriptive Essay

      1. Before you start writing your essay and come up with a plan, you need to put in the paper everything that you know about the topic. On this stage of gathering the information, you should not worry about its organization. To begin, simply put down each element and the characteristics of the function according to what you are describing.
      2. After you put all the information down, you can start to formulate the subtopics. Simply look at the items and bind them in their logical groups. These groups will be your main topics which you will consider in your body paragraphs. Here is a list of suggested topics for a descriptive essay .
      3. Your next step is to read through your information to come up with one major impression that you get from all that you have written. Brainstorm your information for a while and think whether you can come up with one thought or not. Does it sound difficult for you?
      4. When you are writing an introduction, you should keep in mind that it is your opportunity to impress readers, and you should use this opportunity. It is important to grab readers’ attention. Keep in mind that a reader decides whether to read further into your essay when he or she is reading the introduction. Present brief information of what you will write about in the body paragraphs. You can present here a fun fact, an anecdote, or something else that can interest readers. Remember that you should be direct and brief in your introduction. Include a thesis statement that will be understandable for readers.
      5. A thesis statement is the main idea of your essay that will be described in your essay. Use it to make readers understand the main purpose of your paper. Try not to use cliches in your thesis and make it intriguing.
      6. The body paragraphs should support the thesis statement. Don’t forget to use topic sentences. The main arguments are included in the first sentences of paragraphs. Also, use transition words in order to help readers follow your writing systematically. The number of paragraphs depends on the requirements that you get.
      7. Any essay needs a good conclusion to tie up everything that you have mentioned and make an accurate and full summary. In a descriptive essay conclusion, you should sum up your main thoughts and explain the general impressions or thesis using new words. Your conclusion is the last chance to impress readers.
      8. As a rule, you may ask to write a descriptive essay outline. It is written to detail the main points that will be described in the writing.

      Useful Tips on Writing a Descriptive Essay

      • Start writing your essay with some general details that pertain to your subject. For example, if you choose to write about your childhood, you have to tell where you lived and who you lived with.
      • A competent introduction is required to determine the general theme and the approximate course of the author’s thoughts. In other words, it is necessary to concisely but completely indicate the direction of the essay, raising several questions on which the writer is going to seek answers.
      • There are several simple and efficient ways to get started. For example, if it is a question of a specific person, it will not be superfluous to devote a couple of sentences explaining what this person means to you, smoothly leading to his or her characteristics. You can use rhetorical questions to make your writing more interesting.
      • The most universal version of the introduction contains the author’s own opinion of what he or she is describing, and some lengthy reflections and assessments which are going to be developed in subsequent parts.
      • Then move on to facts that are more focused, which will help your readers to understand your topic.
      • It is also advisable to pay attention to the order of your thoughts in each paragraph. Be sure that they create a common mental picture of your subject. If you manage to describe it in this way, your essay will be successful.
        Concerning the number of paragraphs: of course five paragraphs (including the introduction and conclusion) is enough, but if you have more than three aspects of your subject to talk about, write more!
      • When writing your description, don’t forget that some information is not known by your readers. Avoid talking about topics in a way that does not communicate well to your reader.
      • The main part should logically follow from the introductory paragraph. In the heart of the work, it is necessary to present details to the reader, confirming the point of view set forth in the introduction.
      • The main task is to convince readers that you know what you are writing about. Therefore, the arguments, details, and descriptions need to be stated competently and consistently, starting from the less convincing to the most reliable.
      • Make sure your spelling and grammar is checked thoroughly. For this reason, read your essay several times and perform all necessary corrections.
      • Make sure that you stick to the descriptive writing format. In any case, it may influence your grade.
      • You can use various facts, links, quotes, folk wisdom, and eyewitness testimonies. In this case, each of the above arguments, details, and descriptions must be given a personal assessment, indicating your own point of view.
      • The final part is obliged to give clearly formulated answers to the questions raised in the introduction. It is important to remember that none of the issues raised should be left unanswered. If the author of the essay feels that some theme cannot be supported by arguments and that he or she is unable to draw a competent conclusion, it is better to remove the whole issue from the introduction.
      • Description is, in other words, the characteristic. It is most often used in texts aimed at verbal portraits, characters, and states of characters or the surrounding reality. In the description, qualitative adjectives and verbs in the present tense are abundantly used, as well as many artistic devices, like metaphors, epithets, and comparisons. The form of writing a descriptive essay is quite free and does not have a rigid structural framework.

      How to Write a Descriptive Paragraph About a Person’s Appearance

      Describing the appearance of a person, his or her face, body, gestures, and clothes, is one of the types of descriptive writing techniques students use. The main thing in this type of description is to find the characteristic features, the main qualities in the appearance of a particular person, and be able to convey them in words. The description of a person’s appearance is one of the most difficult kinds of descriptions.

      According to the source in these descriptions, one can single out the description of a person’s appearance from memory, life experience, special observations, from what he or she has read, according to the imagination, or from a picture. The description of a person’s appearance, as well as other types of descriptions, can be scientific, artistic, or for business.

      Naturally, not all types of descriptions can be dealt with by students easily. Students should have an idea how to deal with scientific description. The business description needs to be given more attention, since in life the ability to indicate the signs of a person’s face can be useful. In addition, this kind of work, requiring the ability to see the characteristic details of a person’s appearance, develops the skill of observation for students. Much attention should also be paid to the artistic description of a person’s appearance, since work on this type of description is of particular importance for enriching students’ speech.

      Work on the description of appearance helps to develop observational skills and increase attention to the people around you, and to enrich the speech of students with “portrait” vocabulary, which they do not know enough. Work on the description of appearances prepares students for writing on literary topics.

      What Places to Write About in a Descriptive Essay

      If you are assigned to write a descriptive essay about a particular place, it may not be a very difficult task, as we all have beautiful places in our minds. You can write about a place that makes you happy for a long period of time. If you can’t recall a particular place from your memory, try to imagine it. You can write about the place in which you grew up. It can be an apartment, a house, a town, even a whole region. Write about the characteristics and features of the place you are describing. Don’t forget to mention the nature: mountains, forests, meadows, and so on. Write about the animals that live in the place you are describing.

      A descriptive piece of writing is like a window into another world. Using creative examples and details, the author can present a scene that can vividly describe a person, place, or thing. The best descriptive paragraph includes all five senses – smell, sight, touch, taste, and hearing. You can see them both in fiction and in scientific literature.

      All such pieces of writing include places, persons, or things that have a special meaning to the author. After defining the places or things, authors describe them in a way that is personal to them. While writing descriptive essays, it is important to bind all paragraphs together mentioning the personal value of the thing that is described.

      ComYoot Aims To Make a Successful Connection

      By Melissa Silmore msilmore(through)gmail.com

      Carnegie Mellon University alumnus Jameel Francis wants to help bring people together. His new app, ComYoot aims to do just that.

      “There are a lot of tools out there but there was nothing that connected people based on complementary needs or interests,” said Francis, a 2017 MBA graduate of the Tepper School of Business . “We’re often part of these large organizations and communities, like companies or universities, but we’re only connected to who we’re working with on a project or who is in our class.”

      The inspiration for ComYoot came shortly after his arrival at Carnegie Mellon, when he connected two Tepper School classmates who were unaware they were planning simultaneous trips home to the same city. The resulting carpool saved the grateful pair time and money, and a friendship was born.

      The app uses machine learning and data analytics to match users based on their skills, interests and careers. Francis said he hopes to help people make new connections and collaborate in a way to advance their careers and personal lives.

      “ComYoot is something that would be helpful for the members of any community where there’s an inherent ability to help each other,” Francis said. “In a company, for example, you could increase lateral mobility and employee retention just by providing greater access to the entire organization.”

      With an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering, Francis came to the Tepper School as a serial entrepreneur who had founded both a tutoring and an e-commerce company.

      “I chose Tepper first, for its emphasis on analytics and use of data to solve business problems,” Francis said. “Second, for the access to CMU’s computer science and engineering schools and strong cross-campus collaboration. Third, I wanted a school that was entrepreneurial in nature.

      “I definitely found that and more,” he continued. “I didn’t know the depth of what it could provide until I actually arrived. And every week at the CONNECTS series given by CMU’s Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, students across campus come together, pitch ideas and work together. I found that very helpful.”

      While at CMU, Francis was involved with the Swartz Center and was chosen to participate in the James R. Swartz Fellows program , a highly selective technology entrepreneurship initiative that develops potential and leadership through hands-on experiences, networking and mentoring. To develop his idea, he worked closely with incubator Project Olympus , gaining invaluable advice throughout his graduate years and received funding through NSF I-Corps and Olympus Spark grants.

      “Project Olympus was so helpful,” Francis said. “[Entrepreneur-in-residence] Kit Needham is wonderful. She forces you to think outside of the box, to think about the critical aspects of your idea, and go out and talk to people and make sure there’s a real need for the product.”

      It is a vital lesson that the budding entrepreneur absorbed well.

      “Jameel is a great example of how an entrepreneur should go about exploring and developing a business idea,” Needham said. “Many want to immediately create the technology without doing the extensive customer discovery necessary. Jameel did a great deal of research, and then explored and pivoted a few times before he found the business model that worked.”

      Today, Francis works with 13 others on expanding ComYoot’s user base, including Andrius Didziulis, ComYoot’s chief data scientist and a Swartz Fellow.

      ComYoot is available for free download from the Apple app store and is expected to be available for android soon.

      2017 Tepper School of Business alumnus Jameel Francis founded ComYoot to bring people together.

      Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King’s critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work.

      “Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’s On Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer’s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King’s advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.
