Movie review

If you are thinking about seeing a particular movie, would you consult a movie review for a recommendation? Why or why not?

I would not consult movie review because different people has different opinions and taste on movie.

What types of useful information can a movie review offer you? List as many as you can.

Example of a scene from the movie, style of movie, funny or not, famous actors.

How often do you think young people consult movie reviews before watching a movie?

About 85% of people I know ask for movie review because they are not sure if it's worthy of spending their money to watch it.

What aspects about movie reviews make them a positive or negative influence on your decision to watch the movie?

The date movie is made, the actors, graphics, funny, intense, boring.

Perfect college for me would be colleges that has the major I want to learn and friendly people because the college you choose should be comfortable and enjoy.
— How much pressure do you feel, whether from parents, teachers, the media or your friends, to get into a selective college? How do you handle that pressure?
I feel mediums pressure from my parents. I just tell my parent they don't need to worry.

I think it doesn't really matter where you go for college since all college offer almost the same knowledge but more expensive college has better professors.

SAT

— Do you think SAT scores could be a good indicator of future career success? Why or why not?
I don't think a test should decide a persons future because people can learn throughout their job. So why not give a chance for everyone?

— If you were on a hiring committee at a workplace, would you consider SAT scores as part of an applicant’s materials?
It depends what kind of business but I wouldn't consider SAT scores as applicant materials. Doesn't really tells you about the person itself.


— Should there be an expiration date on the scores’ being considered as part of
a prospective employee’s application? If so, what should it be?

Thee should be an expiration date on the score because you never know if someone come in 4 years without working, with their score. 3-4 years should be a good expiration time.

Banning fraternity

— Do you want to join a fraternity or sorority? Why or why not?
I don't want to join fraternity because not interested.

— What do you think fraternities could do to police themselves? Is what Sigma Alpha Epsilon doing enough?
I think fraternities can't do police themselves and Sigma is not doing enough to prevent accidents from happening.

— What do you think would be lost if there were no fraternities on college campuses? What might be gained? Would banning fraternities substantially lessen problems like sexual violence and alcohol-fueled injuries and deaths on college campuses or not?
There would not be much communication if there are no fraternities on campus. But less accident would be prevented.

Fate

— How much control do you think you have over your fate?
I believe I have full control of my fate. Fate can be change if you put enough effort in it.

I feel like I'm currently in a progress of advancing to my own future.
