How to get accepted to Fullgate University
By Alex Herd, Fullgate University Admissions Office. It is time to start applying for university. Some students will be successful, but others will not. If you have dreamed of being admitted to Fullgate University, this article can show you what to do to improve your chances of success. First, you must apply early. You must apply before the application deadline. This is, perhaps, the most important consideration. We receive a lot of applications from excellent students who we have to reject because they sent us their application far too late. Make sure to apply before January 1 7,h. Fullgate University believes that after-school activities such as volunteer work, sports participation, and employment are very important. We look for any activities that help develop a student’s character. Your grades are not the only aspect we consider. Finally, Fullgate University looks closely at letters of recommendation. We require at least three letters of recommendation. These should be written by people such as your teachers, sports club coaches, employers and the leaders of any volunteer organizations you belong to. We suggest that you get these as soon as possible so you can submit them with your application.

Please find enclosed 20 color posters. The Merston City Careers Counseling service, in association with the Merston City Board of Education, would like to ask all Merston City High schools to join the “Stay in School campaign.” Taking part is simple. Please display the posters in your classrooms. It is part of our ongoing campaign to encourage kids to continue their education after high school. If you read the following information, you will understand why we believe this campaign is so important.
It really can pay to stay in school. According to information released by the National Labor Board, the higher a person’s education, the more money he or she can make. Though there continues to be a pay difference between men and women, both groups definitely do better the longer they stay in school. For men with only a high school diploma, the average pay is twenty-two thousand dollars a year. Women with a high school diploma earn about eighteen thousand dollars a year. Adding two years of school increases the yearly wages for men to thirty-one thousand dollars, and twenty-six thousand dollars for women. Finally, completing four years of university earns men thirty-eight thousand per year and women thirty-four thousand per year. So the choice is clear —it is important to stay in school if you want to earn more money.
Thank you for your time and assistance. Together we can make a difference.
