I’m a student, son, and Brooklyn Tech graduate. I like to hang out with friends, go shopping, and sleep. I enjoy eating seafood and like desert.
I’m a little worried about slacking off. I tend to procrastinate at the worst times. I’m concerned about the 2.25 GPA cutoff for the Zickin School of Business. My classes also start quite early, as soon as 8:15 on Mondays and Tuesdays. In my last year of high school I was late for an 8:45 class almost every day. I also have a two and a half hour break every day. I currently do last minute work during my break, but with the intention of better organizing my time, I wonder what I’m going to be doing for that long.
While the freedom to leave between classes already makes the Baruch experience quite different from my high school experience, I get the same feeling as I did in high school. I’m worried that my first semester is going to be a repeat of high school. I tend to the bare minimum needed for passing and not my best. In class, teachers lecture and many do not care if students are asleep or distracted. The homework consists mainly of reading the textbook and I know it can be quite easy to get lost under a backlog of work and be unprepared for tests.
I think by the end of my second semester at Baruch, I hopefully will have better organization skills, stop procrastinating, and consistently go to the gym.
