Mga nag-‘inquire’ sa isang pamantasan: ‘Factor’ din ang pagpili ng mapapasukang kolehiyo pati kurso.


Pakinggan natin ang mga sumagot sa tanong ni Thomas Hagley Sr, isang textbook author. Tinanong niya ang mga kagrupo niya sa isang popular na business- and employment-oriented social networking service na nag-o-operate gamit ang mga website at mga mobile app.

Sulat ni Hagley: “When are they ready for college? What personal characteristics would you see as signs that a young person is ready for college? (I’m a grandparent trying to provide guidance to a 20-year-old granddaughter.)”

Mga Sagot:

Christina Giacobbe-Nuzzolo Thomas: I honestly believe that a student’s preparedness for college is not measurable by any characteristics. I’ve stood before freshman for over seventeen years. There are ones who thrive in a new environment while some struggle. Ironically, I’ve found that students who didn’t do well in high school adapt easily and succeed because it’s a fresh start. Students who had straight A’s in high school struggle with not having control over their academics. Professors don’t need to follow the same rules as their teachers. I always shake my head when they get that first test from a professor that had nothing to do with material that was supposed to be on the exam. College makes students self-sufficient and responsible! They have a grandfather who cares about their success… that’s all they need!

Farah Jamal Karmali: All great comments. I would say: a real desire to be there and to learn (intrinsic motivation), focus, a willingness to try again and learn from “failures”, a commitment to working hard and pushing yourself to achieve your potential. Hope that helps. As a Mom of a high school student, I also wonder how best to advise my kids, but encouraging them to believe in themselves and not be afraid to try is at the top of my list. I believe it will work out in the end.

Terry Baker: AweldI CertEd Thomas hi, I only agree with Christina’s comments above and at twenty the short answer to your headline question is….’Now’

Y Padma Sai: Hello. Great ideas, but present generation students are more addicted to electronic gadgets. Parents and teacher are unable to control them. Please give your valuable suggestions.

Nathan Okia: You are ready for college when you have attempted some advanced courses at high school.

Carolyn Mattocks: Readiness for college is normally based on personal experiences and academic performance. I grew up in a rural area of North Carolina and completed my high school education at at Title I high school. Normally, Title I schools have been stereotyped as having enormous disadvantages. However, I identify my experiences as a student as being some of the best preparation that one could receive to prepare for college. I received a strong value system in alignment with the philosophy of my parents, but because of academic performance I was able to attend two summer programs which gave me insight about college life. These programs were at UNC-Charlotte and Duke University. Each gave me an opportunity to determine if I had an interest in pursuing a particular major, but most importantly it gave me the opportunity to learn about college life. These experiences helped with my preparation for college readiness.

Maria Calkins: Academic preparation only goes so far. Any student who has a decent GPA in high school can do well in college. It’s the “soft skills” that matter in this decision. How independent are they? Have they demonstrated agility in difficult situations? As a college professor for over 2 decades, I’ve seen B & C HS students excel in college because they have grit, open minds & clear goals (or are open to trying as many new things as possible in helping them clarify their goals). On the other hand, I’ve seen A students who excelled in high school struggling to deal with college because they come believing that they already have what it takes to succeed, aren’t very flexible, and become distracted by the social aspects of college because those are in their comfort zone. The size of the HS and colleges involved are also important. Someone who was a “big fish in a small pond” in high school will often struggle at a large university. I hope this helps!

DC Alviar: One needed to stop attending his first university of choice because he failed most of his subjects in his first two semesters. He earned the diploma from another university, but not without delay. The Q is also timely as the Philippines jumpstarts its K-12 program, which leads us to ask: Is it possible that the difficulties with K-12 might have been caused by the premature program launching? As for the delayed graduation case, it’s indicative of the student’s utter lack of preparation to go to a university based in Mega Manila (culturally shocked he was; he’s “college-ready” for as long as he would still be based in the Visayas, where he spent his last two years in high school). The reason why he initially failed in college was his equally utter lack of soft skills. When he reached 20, he became more responsible, removed his Visayan accent, and reverted to his Manila accent. If I look at the totality of this kind of personality, it mattered in his delayed but successful college feat.
