PLEASEEE RATE MY ESSAY. IM TAKING TOEFL NEXT WEEK AND I NEED HELP.


Prompt: When students move to a new school, they sometimes face problems. How can schools help these students with their problems? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your answer.

Coping with a different environment isn’t always an easy thing to do. That’s why emotional problems are most likely to occur. Thus, I believe that every school should do its best to help transfer students cope with there new environment.
Leaving your old school and moving to a new one isn’t always trouble-free, I know that because I’ve been through this a lot in my life. A problem that most commonly occurs is coping with people that have different backgrounds than you. A transfer student might be a subject of bullying because he\she is different. That’s an enough reason for every school to have a councilor that could be specialized in dealing with transfer students. Thus, whenever a student is going through a tough situation, he\she could find someone to talk to.
Since every school has its own rules. Different rules, and code of conduct might be another troublesome situation that a new student in school might be exposed to. So, I think that schools should have a welcoming day to all the new students. In that day everything about the rules of the school should be explained. That way new students will be aware of what’s expected of them through there academic years at there new school.
Another problem that a new student could be going through is nostalgia. It’s a sure thing that a person will miss his/her friends from their old school. A way to solve this problem is by having a lot of activities and clubs that students could join. That way it would be easy on new students to get to know people, and have new friends. By that way they’d get over the fact that they’ve left there old friends, and they will start coping with the new ones.
In conclusion, I would like to say that new students always face problems coping at first to their new school. Coping might take so long to happen, that’s why I think that every school should do its best to help its new students feel welcomed.

Guys, I have heard that Listening Section has questions with more than two answers, and this is not explicitly stated. Is there any kind of sign to understand that this particular question has >2 answers?

I scored 108 on TOEFL a couple of days before. I have a decent GMAT score in the mid 700's. But what I feel is that I lacked the HBS breakeven point of 109 by just a point. Should I consider retaking?? Would a difference of just 1 or 2 points would really make a difference in my applications ?? ( I personally don't think that TOEFL makes a much sense in terms of your aptitude to top b- schools ). Candid opinions are highly solicited. :)

A good strategy to improve your TOEFL score that will also help you in business school is reading business related periodicals and books. I recommend The Financial Times, New York Times and The Economist. Read an article that interests you and think about what the main points were, and get into the habit of breaking down the article and analyzing the different parts. Practice does make perfect.

Here's a blog post that recommends many pre-MBA reads.

I personally found http://toeflresources.com extremely helpful. Found them accidentally, but it was the best preparation help ever! There is lots of information about the structure of responses for writing and speaking. I have also asked them to review my speaking recordings and essays - and it was really of a great help! I revealed my weaknesses, and even though it was only 3-4 days before the test, and I finally scored 29 on both.
