Why Does College Cost So Much--And Why Do So Many Pundits Get It Wrong? | HASTAC - 28 views

  •  
    "To say that American universities are too expensive is like saying cars are too expensive. What do we mean by such a statement?  Are we talking about the cost of a Lamborghini Veneno (at 3.5M, one of the world's  most expensive cars) or a Hyundai Atos (at $9000, one of the least expensive)?  For the captain of industry, the sultan, or the magnate, there might not be enough luxury features on the Lamborghini.  For the person barely hanging on to that minimum wage job with no benefits, paying $9000 for an Atos to get across town to work at Walmart every day may be hopelessly out of reach.   "

  • You have just completed your 300-page autobiography. Please submit Page 217. (UPenn, 2009)

  • 如果你想知道普林斯顿到底喜欢什么样的人,从这个题目应该可以看出点端倪 – 有思想而且执著的人。这首诗到底在说啥,怎样才能起跳?有些人可能有这样的经历,他看到了一件事,读了一本书,有一个哲学问题等等,以后就一直放不下。因为挥之不去,就变成了他的一个负担,坚硬而冰凉。没有?那你太幸福了,也许你就不该写这个题目。如果有这种经历,你或许能写出一篇很出彩的文章,展示你的思想的深度和敏锐度。要注意的是重点不在这个事件的本身,更重要的是后来呢?它是怎样改变了你的,而你又做了些什么呢?
