I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Why I Want to Attend Fordham University. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Admittedly, at that time, I was more like a social butterfly than like a student. Instead of concentrating on my studies, I was happy enjoying the newly found freedom. In fact, my parents are married for more than thirty years and this orthodox mentality was visible in their decisions regarding my education too. They afforded me very little freedom and wanted me to become a professional football player. However, I failed to meet the expectations of my family as I concentrated neither on my football nor on my studies. The result was that I failed in both.
However, things turned right as I met the woman who has become my wife. It was my time with her that opened my eyes for the first time. In fact, she was from a family of first-generation immigrants and they had to struggle a lot to improve their social position and to earn a normal living. Listening to her story, for the first time in my life, I understood how important it is to have a good education to lead a respectful and useful life as a husband, citizen, and a good human being.
Thus, I restarted my education by enrolling at SUNY Orange in Middletown, New York. This time, I selected the course carefully. As I was interested in law from the very beginning of my life, I selected Criminal Justice. Thus, my matriculation was in Criminal Justice.
With my enlightenment, my score improved considerably. I secured 18 credits in my first semester and entered Dean’s list with a 3.8. Admittedly, this would not help me erase my poor beginning. However, it helps me show others that I have changed in my outlook. Also, the good score gave me enough strength and confidence to surge ahead towards my goals. Soon, I joined the U.S Army Reserves.
In fact, I was getting more and more insights about my aim in life. During my years in the army, I observed and learned a lot about the different people in my society. .
