However, the aspect of citizenship that Dr Schlissel wants to address is that of understanding how to accumulate and assess information. During my freshman year, I was looking for ways to get involved on campus. As it is currently the midst of finals season here in Cambridge, many here on campus can’t help but think about their Winter Break plans.
Known as J-Term on campus, Harvard’s Winter Break lasts for over a month. Depending on your final exam schedules in December, one’s winter break can last from early-to-mid December to late January. With over a month of break in between Fall and Spring Semesters, may Harvard students opt to take the time to do a variety of things: spend time with family, travel abroad, volunteer, work, prepare for graduate school exams, etc.
Freshman year J-term and this upcoming J-term I plan to stay home for the majority of it to rest and spend time with my family in Los Angeles. A fellow Harvard program attendee and I co-wrote a piece for Vice News Latin America about American expats that live in Mexico and how their experiences in Mexico had informed their thoughts on the upcoming presidential election. The link to the article can be found below:
Not only was this experience a remarkable opportunity to immerse myself in a new country, but it gave me a supportive network of friends and programming that made that adjustment in a new country all the more enjoyable.
As someone who was not necessarily looking to study for the abroad during his time at college but still wanted international experience, I’m very grateful that “winternship” opportunities allowed me to have a brief but substantive.
When you apply in the early action pool, Harvard will deny, defer, or accept your application. Getting “deferred” just means that Harvard still thinks you’re pretty neat-o and wants to look at your application again during the regular decision pool.
It kinda stinks getting deferred because no one likes waiting, but there’s still hope. Just because you got deferred doesn’t mean that you can’t get accepted later. Me and my roommate both got deferred and then got in during regular decision. So, don’t freak out. You’re still rockin’!
It is with children that we have the best chance of studying the development of logical knowledge, physical knowledge, and so forth.
There’s nothing like a nice relaxing cup of tea, says my grandma, and she’s been around on this green and blue planet for 88 years so I trust her. Take some time to gather yourself and chill out. Everything’s A-okay. The sky is still above your head probably/hopefully, and you will eventually go to college next year.
