Sample Answer 1
We are constantly being bombarded with different kinds of messages in the form of emails and SMS, important or not-so-important, every day whether we like them or not. While some of those messages make us feel happy, the others sadden and demoralize us. Today, I would like to talk about one such important message, which I received about 5 years ago, that made me truly happy.
Again, it was a month ago, and I had just finished my four years honors course in Management Information System from the university. So, naturally, the next course of action for me was to get enrolled at the university again and finish my post-graduation degree. But, the problem was that the results in my undergraduate degree were not good enough to seek further education as a post-graduate student at the same university except, of course, I had at least a couple of years of previous work experience at a pharmaceutical company.
So, the only option left for me was to “pray” in order to get listed on the ‘waiting list’, for students like me to receive admission offers from the authority at a later time, should somebody change the “Management Information System” major and transfer to another faculty or department. So, anyway, my waiting period started, and all I could do was to pray for a call from my university authority. Luckily enough, I did receive a formal message in an email, a couple of weeks after the initial trouble, inviting me to get enrolled at my university to carry on my Master’s degree in Management Information System.
The message was certainly important for me as it pretty much decided the course of my life and career for many years to come, by helping me become the person I am today, as I could not possibly excel academically as much in other educational fields as in the subject of my choice. Besides, it helped me stay in my home town and carry on with my higher education by remaining close to my elderly parents, which was absolutely important for me and my family.
