Viber Conference during our morning class at 8.30 am. Ahsanul talked to the students about a few things (a summary of his talk in noted below):
- Ahsanul insisted that students who are eager to get "Good" admission should better train themselves into several other things that is NOT connected with School Transcript and Exam Scores/Grades. Ahsanul also insisted that students take a strong interest in Art and Literature as this will show Admissions Committee that the student is fully disposed to think critically and 'out of the box'.
- Ahsanul informed the students that he is the first Bangladesh student in Sewanee University after a break of 4 years. He also mentioned that he is currently receiving 85% in Financial Aid.
- Ahsanul mentioned that he found his Computer Science Engineering department has top quality resources and provides huge opportunity for international students.
- One very important thing Ahsanul mentioned was that students often make major mistakes in choosing their Major, in choosing Colleges, and by NOT developing a creative-critical approach to studies. May be I will again ask Ahsanul to shed some fresh light on this particular issue on coming Saturday.
