Says: The power of this introduction is that it places the reader in your shoes, making him or her more interested in what takes place in the rest of the essay. Its main mistake is that its informality gives the essay a slightly hokey or corny tone. Although a greater degree of informality is allowed in a creative essay, you must be careful not to take it too far.
This is especially true for business school applications since many universities will ask you to submit several different essays, with very specific prompts.
Says: This is a very effective introduction to an essay about your personality. Mentioning pride is a good way to indicate how important your beliefs and values are to you. In a sentence like this, however, it would be better to use "Throughout" rather than "Through." "Throughout" better expresses the widespread, expansive tone you want to give this sentence.
I've done a number of radio interviews with Don Nicoloff on the subject of chemtrails and Sylphs. The three radio show listed here will give you a good idea on the overall agenda of chemtrail spraying and how they are mitigated throuigh the use of orgone generators and focused intent. Air elemental beings identified by the ancient Greeks (& Paracelsus) as are stimulated and energized by orgone generators and will literally vacumn up and transmute chemtrails into harmless substances. I realize this is hard to believe by the average person who is unaware of these etheric beings, but the evidence can be seen right over your head if you know what to look for
Creative Introduction: A creative introduction catches the reader off-guard with an opening statement that leaves the reader smiling or wondering what the rest of the essay contains.
Most universities acknowledge that the admission essay-while only one component in the application package-is the best opportunity for acquainting the admissions officer with the student.
After reviewing the in-depth information provided by you, it is our vital job to parse out the information which we think would be best suited for use in your business school application essay.
Says: This introduction is clear and to the point, and will prepare your reader for the ideas you want to discuss. However, it is rather unexciting and will not immediately engage your reader. As mentioned, you should try to preface it with a more creative statement. In addition, it makes one typical error. One should usually avoid using contractions in a formal essay, for example, "Iâve."
Says: This introduction is both creative and effective. It amuses the reader by listing a bizarre and probably fictitious set of achievements, thus demonstrating the writerâs imagination (and poking fun at the admissions process). At the same time, its light tone avoids sounding too obnoxious. As a note, you should remember that good use of semicolons will impress your reader: "I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees; I write award-winning operas; I manage time efficiently."
If you look at the top 50 songs in America now, you'll notice that instead of truth-telling Hills, we're presented with scores of young women who are literally begging for male attention—of any kind. In Ariana Grande's "Love Me Harder," she urges a casual bedmate to play rough. "I'll take the pleasure with the pain," she implores. Perhaps worse than "Harder," in which the 21 year old claims that she's also a one-night-stand assassin, is "One Last Time," a song about a cheating girlfriend who desperately needs a final romp with her ex. "Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart," she pleads. "All I really care is you wake up in my arms." And on it goes. Meghan Trainor cheekily promises to "let you try and rock my body right"—as long as the guy doing the rockin' always apologizes first, buys her a ring, and "doesn't have a dirty mind." Basically, "just be a classy guy." Tove Lo is a mess. She's "day drunk into the night" with really only one objective: to "keep you here." An EDM-enhanced Selena Gomez is offering it all up in "I Want You to Know." After all, she says, "I'm better under your reflection." And then there's Fifth Harmony's "Worth It," which is an assault on a woman's autonomy. The song literally equates a dude "giving it to you" with self worth. This is actually the premise of the 23rd most popular song in the United States right now.
Action Introduction: An Action Introduction takes the reader into the middle of an action sequence. By not building up to the story, it forces the reader to read on to find out not only the significance of this moment in time, but what led up to and followed it. It is perfect for short essays where space must be conserved or for narrative essays that begin with a story.
“A penny saved is a penny earned,” the well-known quote by Ben Franklin, is an expression I have never quite understood, because to me it seems that any penny—whether saved or spent—is still earned no matter what is done with it. My earliest memories of earning and spending money are when I was ten years old when I would sell Dixie cups of too-sweet lemonade and bags of salty popcorn to the neighborhood kids. From that early age, I learned the importance of money management and the math skills involved. I learned that there were four quarters in a dollar, and if I bought a non-food item—like a handful of balloons—that I was going to need to come up with six cents for every dollar I spent. I also knew that Kool-Aid packets were 25 cents each or that I could save money and get five of them for a dollar. Today, however, money management involves knowing more than which combinations of 10-cent, five-cent, and one-penny candies I can get for a dollar. Proper money management today involves knowing interest rates, balancing checkbooks, paying taxes, estimating my paycheck, and budgeting to make ends meet from month-to-month.
