I was an art major in college. You couldn't have talked me into anything else. Then much later I got my masters in early adolescent education. I would NEVER have gone into that in my 20s.
So I was told maybe reinstalling Windows is my only option...
was this the wrong place for me to ask my question?
I've tried to encourage the kids, but it seems that most of them are going into the medical field, such as radiology, dental. I have to support it, since those areas are the ones that have plenty of jobs. Lots of law students and even law graduates can't get jobs now.
With the aging population from the baby boom, the medical field should be an obvious direction, but that also requires the maths, sciences that so many people run from.
They also run from reading, I've learned, something I'll never understand and pity them for.
My daughter is my youngest. She is a strong student so I have to believe she'll make good choices in the end.
I have one graduating this year from his first degree (conflict and ethic studies) and he'll go on to a masters. He wants medicine as his final career but he wants to work in 3rd world countries which is why his background is different.
My second son is in his 2nd year of biomedical engineering.
Funny that university is an expectation of my kids and my family had no one attend university before me. Both my sisters did community college as did my dad. My mom graduated high school and got married. Grandparents didn't even go to high school.
My son told me he only went to college because I always talked about how much I loved my college time. His dad had a full ride and didn't go. :doh Most of the family, both sides, did not have any (or at least very little) college, but I think they at least did graduate high school.
I STILL say I mis-married and I'm still kicking myself!!! :cuss :lol
Can someone help me with this? I am writing a letter recommending a young man I know for admission into law school. What do I put for the heading and salutation? The letter is actually going to a company who handles these kinds of things for applicants and not directly to the law school. And I know he is applying to multiple law schools. I don't know their names.
And, if I'm emailing the letter to this company, do I type my name or do I sign my signature, then scan it and email it?
I wasn't sure of the proper way to do it under these circumstances. I found one on-line that had To Whom It May Concern. I just never thought you were actually supposed to use that.
I checked with that company and they say to leave it blank, because it's going to multiple places. I guess that answers my question.
I've always thought that To Whom It May Concern sounded rude. Like saying "I don't know who you are & I don't care, so there". Like you're about to write something to tell the person off.
I've always liked "Dear Sir or Madam" in annonymous circumstances. First you're calling them Dear, being friendly. Then you're covering both the male & female gender without offending either one. Just don't put an "e" on Madam or you're talking about a whole different type of working female. :winkgrin
As to the signature, type your full name & sign your signature above it. I know that's proper in most business letters. You're signing for personalness, & you're typing it for exact spelling accuracy.
