Sample Answer

I would like to share with you one of the most interesting conversations I had with my teacher about my choice of a university.

To be honest, at that time, I was so confused with a lot of choices that I was totally exhausted. It was a tough decision for me because the university was a turning point for my future career prospect. If I chose the wrong one, I would waste a lot of time and efforts. The hardest part, I think, is to balance between my possibility to be admitted and the suitability between my potentials and the field of the university. I had chosen a famous and high-ranked university, but I wondered whether I was qualified enough to register for it.

As it was the first time I had to make such a big decision, I approached a teacher who was dear to me to ask for some advice as she had a lot of experience in every field. After listening carefully to my explanation, she asked me why I chose that university. I told her that I chose the university because I was impressed with their teaching methods and extracurricular activities. As their students were highly qualified, I thought I can establish a good network there and learn a lot from them. Then, she asked what made me fear this choice, I answered that I doubted if I was good enough to be admitted. She smiled when I said so and calmed me down by saying that I was among the outstanding students she had ever had, and she was extremely confident that I could meet their requirements. However, she implied that I shouldn’t worry too much about failure, instead, I should make a concerted effort to reach the goal I set, thus, in the end,  there would be no regrets. Her words inspired me so much that it released all my fears and worries.

This conversation was interesting to me because apart from positive advice, she also helped me calm down, thus, made me focus more on studying to achieve my goals. Then, I got a satisfying result for my application and had a wonderful university life. Until now, I’m thankful to her for that interesting conversation.
