Please Help Me With My Homework / Research?
For one of my classes I have to write a 5,000-6,000 page report on a topic of my choice. I have decided to write about how my College (which is very traditional aka Business, Arts and Sciences, Criminal Justice, etc) should offer a Fashion Marketing class. In this paper I have to address background on the fashion industry and how and why this is a lucrative professional choice that is attracting more and more students into the field... Any suggestions?

since it's a traditional college, i think it's a good idea if you use fashion as a source of modernisation for the college. fashion can be used as a tool for improving it's image, on why they should offer it, simply because fashion is what makes the world interesting, it set trends, it produces the beautiful people we adore and it offers the chance for us to be unique and forge our own creative paths.

AND IF THEY DON'T LIKE THAT WELL, TELL THEM IT'S BECAUSE DARLINGS FASHION IS JUST FABULOUS AND WE LOVE IT

Would You Help Me With My Homework / Research?
hey all,
So I have this admissions essay to write and the topic is basically give a biography of your life including any work experiences, hobbies, extracurricular activities, etc. etc. Anyway I've been putting it off because i don't know how to write an essay about any of those things in an interesting way or how I can make it interesting while still including relevant information about work experience, etc. etc. Any thoughts or ideas? I'm really grabbing at straws here people

Just start off as if you were talking to someone you know. A good thing to do also would be to get a tape recorder and just start talking about your life, then go back and edit the parts you don't want to include. Good luck

When my dad was sick, and I didn't know too much about his life when he was young I ask him to tell me his life story. Every day when I went to the hospital he would tell me another story. I wrote them all down and I wouldn't trade them for the world. If nothing else you could pretend that your kids will read it someday.

I remember when I had to write the f..... statement of intent as part of the admission process to parsons..
my suggestions are: talk about relevant issues... mainly discuss episodes in your life which led u to become the person u are today.. and what can u add with your personal experiences to enrich the classes, cultural background, etc.

P1. intro - who are you - where are u from - your "supportive" family - etc . i started with "since i was a child, i have always lived and breathed fashion. my parents have owned a fashion company.. bla bla bla...

P2 & P3. why do u want to study fashion des. (or whatever are u applying for-..) - what did u study - where did u work - achievements: try to use concrete facts such as "i accomplished...", "I organised..", "I designed...", "I was responsible for..."

P4: GOALS... "as a result of my personal experiences.... I believe that XXXX is the best place to study XXXXX...", " XXX suits me in many ways: ........."

P5: conclusion - explain why do u have to be there and sum up the main issues u have discussed within the essay...

hope can help!!
good luck!!

I'd do it on an original way ..by putting it backwards!
Starting with "I delivered my paper to my teacher today ..." and then ... go back!
It'll get a 10 for originality!
