Personal Statement: Reaching a goal

I first realized I wanted to be a teacher when I was volunteering my time to coaching youth cheerleading. I found enjoyment in helping children learn new things. I decided then that I would set a goal for myself to become an Elementary school teacher. That day is when I decided I would find a good college, prioritize my time better, and put my educations first. This is the first part of my previous essay. I think it's a good...

Most schools want your essay to be simple (not too wordy). 5 paragraphs (give it structure and a good flow). Also remember they care about content AND they way its written. Do not forget to check spelling, grammar, transitions, AUDIENCE, and sentence structure. If your audience is the school faculty...which it usually is, so remember they are professional grown ups that want professional grown ups at their school, NO SLANG!

391 Words
WGU is a completely online school. It is totally real! At first I wasn't so sure, but I dug super deep into it. Now I'm a junior working towards my BA. So the scoop is you do not receive credit hours, instead they use CU's. You have to complete so many CU's, to receive a degree. For my BA for example I transferred with 41 CU's and I need a total of 122 CU's to get my BA degree. So a CU is a competency. Here you don't do multiple assignments and test. To complete a "class" you will only have to...
