After two years' study in the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, I have discovered that it is not easy to find a major that fits me well. Before I went to UIUC, I
simply determined decided
to major in Actuarial Science without much consideration.
Right now, I'm
still not quite sure what
an actuary should
do in his job
I do not think I like dealing
with all the math and calculus every day. However, I learned a lot in UIUC. In these two years, I started to consider what I should do in the future. This is the first time that I
think have thought
deeply about my life. I have
found that I enjoy
the business atmosphere the best. After discussing with my friends and parents, I
find out realized
that the Finance program
maybe may be
a better major for me.
there are not so many big companies around Champaign and Urbana, though,
so I decided to find another university that would fulfill my educational requirements. New York City is, of course, an ideal place to continue my study. There are much more opportunities in NYC than Champaign and Urbana, and the Finance program in New York University is top ranked. I believe that New York University will train me well for the enterprise that I am going to go through.
Transferring out from UIUC is very hard, I have to leave all of my friends that I
two years with,
and relationships with professors behind,
and prepare to build new relationships in
entirely new environment. The change of the environment and people will be the biggest challenge for me during my college life.
Even though However
, going to NYU is a great opportunity to learn about western culture, and to
get to know how Finance works on an international and global level. As a Chinese, I hope I can bring
culture diversity to New York University. New York University is
ideal college because it can provide the rigorous educational atmosphere and abundant opportunities that I am looking for. NYU has a remarkable reputation that sets it apart from other universities in the
area, and I will be proud to be a student of New York University.
