College Tours For High School Students

Lori Said:

Help a high school student, just edit this letter, really short or make it professional?

We Answered:

Dear Sergeant Jones,

I am one of the students from North College. It was an immense pleasure to have the opportunity to meet you at Ontario's Police College. I would like to take the time to thank you for the energy and enthusiasm you showed in giving us a tour of the campus. I will certainly remember the excursion for many years to come. Your warm welcome left me pleased to have chosen the North College and Police Foundations program.

I am in the process of preparing a large presentation for a considerable audience. My power point presentation will focus on the Police Foundations Program and our enjoyable visit. I am wondering if it would be an inconvenience for you to send me some photographs taken at the visit to include in my presentation materials? I recall one in particular that you had taken depicting all the students, including myself, in two lines. This picture would be greatly useful to me as well as any others you might choose to send along.

Once again, thank you for your time and generosity for the tour and a both enlightening and enjoyable day. I look forward to hearing from you.

Very truly yours,

A recent high school student is in need of your help? Thank you so much.?

We Answered:

I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but have you considered the military? All five branches have overseas bases and travel widely accross the US. In particular, the Air Force and Navy are great for people who want to travel and see the world. Even active duty Coast Guard travels abroad, mostly to Latin America.

Those three branches also have the most diverse job opportunities. They'll train you in whatever it is you want to be. I know there are tons of stories out there about people getting screwed when they enlist and being cooks for four years. But the truth is that as long as you have a strong educational backround and score high on the ASVAB you can be anything in the military. Not only will they train you in a specific job, but they'll pay for you to study other fields of interest as they come to you. Anyone can be a grunt in the military, but intelligent, multi-talented people in the military are very valuble, because not many of those people look at the military as a career option.

My advice to you would be to go to college for two or three semesters and just study whatever you feel like. Study a wide range of subjects. It'll prepare you intellectually for the ASVAB and the college credit will give you advanced rank when you enlist (24 credits gets you E-2, 48 gets you E-3) The only courses I'd strongly recommend you to study are two semesters of english, two semesters of math, and two semesters of a single foriegn language.

And finally, don't think for a second that you're not cut out for certain subjects like math and science. You just graduated highschool, you have no idea what you can do yet. And half the time, the teachers themselves don't know what the hell they're doing (mine certainly didn't)

Sandra Said:

I'm in high school and i have a small letter, can you edit it?

We Answered:

There is no need to tell the sergeant who you are in the first sentence as you will be signing the letter. This is standard in all formal, business correspondence.

Note: If the sergeant does this on a regular basis, you better tell him the date he toured your group or he'll be cluless as to what pictures he should send.

Dear Sergeant XXXXX,

It was a sincere pleasure meeting you at Ontario’s Police College. Thank you for hosting our group and conducting the tour we took on May xx, 2009. It proved to be one of the most important days in my life. I am very happy that I chose ……. College and Police Foundations Program.

I will be conducting a major Power Point presentation about the Police Foundations program. To supplement this presentation, and, as you offered, I would appreciate it if you could send me copies of pictures that you took of our group on the tour. This would be most appreciated.

Once again, thank you for your time, kindness and thoughtfulness. I will always recommend.. ……………..College to my friends.

Sincerely yours,

Your name here

A recent high school student is in need of your help. THANKS A LOT!?

We Answered:

With just a high school diploma and no additional training or apprenticeships of any kind, your job options will be limited. Jobs like you describe aren't real common anyway and aren't likely to be available to you unless of course you win American Idol or are a sports superstar or something.

Good luck anyway.

Christy Said:

is being "overwhelmed with stress" a graduation requirement?

We Answered:

Wow, seems easy in Canada now.. :)

52 credits + 30hrs volunteer experience. Thats it

And why do you need to apply to 4 colleges, what if you dont plan on going to college. Say you just want to take a year off to work or relax

Discuss It!
