Letter to my Academic Advisor

August 21st, 2003 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

To: Jill Camberlain
Subject: A letter from your advisee

Dear Ms Chamberlain,

This is Jason Yeo, from Singapore.  I have just this instant received your thoughtful card in the mail – thank you for taking the initiative to write.  I am delighted to have you as my academic advisor, and I look forward to meeting you at Wadsworth House on Tuesday, September 9th from 12noon to 1.30pm.

Having spent the last two and a half years serving compulsory military service, I am both excited to be finally starting college (I was accepted to the College back in Dec 2000) and at the same time I am apprehensive about getting back up to speed academically.  At last count, it has been about 33 months since I last did any calculus or wrote any graded essays, and thus I do not foresee myself performing well in the math, physics and chemistry placement tests.  (Do you have any information about the standard of these placement tests?)

In terms of academic interests, I would like to pursue an interdisciplinary concentration such as Environmental Science & Public Policy or Social Studies. I also hope to qualify for citations in French (in which I have the equivalent of about 3 years of study) and Manadarin Chinese (12 years experience).  Lastly, I am planning on satisfying the pre-med requirements (I turned down a place at the local medical school to attend Harvard).

Presently, my career interests lie in the areas of public health, resource & environmental management, public policy and social justice.

Despite how it may sound, I am really quite confused by the myriad of choices and resources available at Harvard, and I am truly thankful to have an academic advisor.  I apologise for the length and self-absorption of this email – I am simply thrilled by the prospect of an enriching and fulfilling time at Harvard.

Thank you for your attention.

Yours sincerely,
Jason S. Yeo

    I was told it was against the law to sell used car seats. My baby consignment store I go to won’t sell them (I’m a bargain hunter). I would buy brand new. I just bought a really nice one at Target for $59. They had cheaper one’s too. Especially since your mom gave you the $50, I would get a new one. The germ/cleanliness thing would bother me too.

    Die Zeitungsreporter, der Menschen-Telefone hack sollte ins Gefängnis für 10 Jahre gestellt werden. Längere für Hacker die Telefone der diejenigen, die Opfer einer Straftat wurden oder verloren jemand. Die Trauer und Schmerz des Todes ist schlecht, ohne jemand Hacking Ihr Telefon an ein Ding, dass sie in eine Story drehen können.

    .Mae’r papur newydd “News of the World” yn cau. Cannoedd yn colli eu swyddi oherwydd bod yr un a ddylai fod wedi colli ei swydd, yn cael swydd arall gyda siec gyflog o fraster. Gan fod y pennaeth “News of the World” dylai fod wedi cael eu cicio allan a byddai cannoedd o employies a oedd unrhyw beth i’w wneud â’r scandle, yn dal i gael eu swyddi. Wonder beth mae hi wedi bod yn ei wneud i fynd i hynny ddigwydd.

    Roofs are made from different materials. Wood, straw, slate, stone, metal, plastic and anything else that can be used. Mostly depends on where you are in the world and how much you can buy, as to what type of roof you will have.

    Toeau yn cael eu gwneud o ddeunyddiau gwahanol. Wood, gwellt, llechi, carreg, metel, plastig ac unrhyw beth arall y gellir ei ddefnyddio. Yn bennaf yn dibynnu ar ble rydych chi yn y byd a faint y gallwch ei brynu, o ran pa fath o do bydd gennych.

Bizim tibbi biliklərin bizim silah kimi sürətli kimi artmışdır, biz iki və ya daha çox əsrlər boyu canlı edə bilərsiniz.

  27. Josh Says:

    Why do people starve in a world that produces more food than it needs ? On a web page it said it was due to logistics of moving the food. I say, it is more to do with profits than a lack of the ability to move the food to where it is needed. Also some third world countries are exporting food they need so they can get money for other things. If we all were even half way to what we call humanity, no one would starve. But we are humans and fail to live upto our good ideals.

  28. Linus Says:

    ¿Por qué las personas mueren de hambre en un mundo que produce más alimentos de lo que necesita? En una página web que dijo que era debido a la logística del traslado de la comida. Digo, es más que ver con los beneficios que la falta de la capacidad de mover la comida a donde más se necesita. Además, algunos países del tercer mundo son exportadores de alimentos que necesitan para que puedan conseguir el dinero para otras cosas. Si todos eran aún a medio camino de lo que llamamos humanidad, nadie moriría de hambre. Pero somos humanos y no pueden vivir hasta nuestros ideales bien.

    Terfysgoedd unwaith eto rhwygo trwy nifer o ddinasoedd Lloegr. Bydd llawer o bobl yn troi i fyny ar gyfer eu man gwaith heddiw i ddod o hyd iddo ddrylliwyd neu’n waeth, dinistrio. Faint mwy o yn mynd i golli eu swyddi fel eu man gwaith gael ei ddinistrio? Dod yn y fyddin ac yn cael dim dal wahardd wrth ddelio â’r terfysgwyr. Maent eisiau brifo eraill trwy frics taflu a phethau eraill, felly dylai fod yr un fath drais yn ôl ar eu cyfer.

  31. Anjanette Edelstein Says:

    Thanks for your suggestions. One thing I have noticed is the fact banks along with financial institutions are aware of the spending habits of consumers while also understand that most people max outside their real credit cards around the vacations. They properly take advantage of this particular fact and then start flooding your inbox and snail-mail box with hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers soon after the holiday season ends. Knowing that for anyone who is like 98% of American community, you’ll leap at the opportunity to consolidate financial debt and transfer balances for 0 interest rate credit cards.

  37. Steve Says:

    There is a dangerous virus being passed around electronically, orally, and by hand. This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss, or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.
    If you should come into contact with WORK, put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest grocery store. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolating-Neutralizer-Extract (WINE) or Bothersome-Employer-Elimination-Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
    You should forward this warning to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

  38. Ted Says:

    Doctor Dave had slept with one of his patients and felt guilty all day long.

    No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn’t.

    The guilt and sense of betrayal was overwhelming. But every once in a while he’d hear an internal, reassuring voice that said:

    “Dave, don’t worry about it. You aren’t the first doctor to sleep with one of their patients and you won’t be the last. And you’re single. Just let it go..”

    But invariably the other voice would bring him back to reality, whispering:

    “Dave you’re a vet.”
