Homework Help: college application short response

Posted by Rose on Friday, December 1, 2006 at 8:26pm.

Deadline tonight, please help!!!!
Thanks.

C.Please explain which of the following you would prefer and why: the opportunity to take a wide range of courses across a range of disciplines including the sciences, social sciences and humanities, or the opportunity to focus on courses in one discipline that deeply interests you.

I would prefer to take wide range of courses instead of some specific courses in one discipline. From the school society to the outside big world, they are both diverse communities, so I may face people who have different interests. Having knowledge in a wide extent could help me better to communicate with them. Also, as more and more issues been released now related to multi-disciplines, wide range of knowledge could assist me to have deeper understanding in them. Taking courses from many areas can not only widen my scopes but also develop my ability of thinking in different ways. For instance, people studying math and science solve problems usually base on formulas, theories, or principles that have already existed and universally agreed; but a literary or social sciences student may be more intended to use their sense to analyze problems.

Also, as more and more issues been released now related to multi-disciplines<~~"issues ... multi-disciplines" means what? it doesn't make sense to me, wide range of knowledge could assist me in having deeper understanding of them. Taking courses from many areas can not only widen my scopes<~~delete "s" and add comma but also develop my ability to think in different ways. For instance, people studying math and science solve problems usually based on formulas, theories, or principles that have already existed and are universally agreed on; but a literary or social sciences student may be more intended to use their sense<~~what??? "may be ... sense" doesn't make sense to me to analyze problems.

Please repost when you have revised.

An example for you: Medicine and Electronics

The" issues...multi-disciplines"...actually I want to say something about that many things we read, we see, we solve are related to a wide area, not only narrowed in a specific discipline.


I dont really know how to describe the way of literary or social sisences student think, but I know it is different from science student's.
So how I should say?

Also, as more and more subjects become more widely known, a wide range of knowledge could assist me in having a deeper understanding of them.

...but a student of literature or the social sciences may need to think and draw conclusions differently, using logic and their background knowledge to analyze problems.

???

Sorry -- pronoun reference error in my suggestion. Corrected here:

...but students of literature or the social sciences may need to think and draw conclusions differently, using logic and their background knowledge to analyze problems.

Also, as more and more subjects become more widely known, a wide range of knowledge could assist me in having a deeper understanding of them.

There are three "more" in that sentence, is it OK?

Do I need a conclusion sentence for this paragraph ?

That sentence would read fine with only one "more" in it; delete the first and third instances.

Whether you need a conclusion depends on whether it's leading into another paragraph or standing on its own. If it's standing on its own, then yes, it needs a conclusion.
