Describe a difficult decision that you once made
You should say
What the decision was
When you made your decision
How long it took to make the decision
And explain why it was difficult to make
A hard decision that I once made that I would like to talk about was choosing to study in a city that is far away from my hometown.
The decision was made after the results of College Entrance Exams came out in the summer three years ago. You know, my parents had expectations of me, hoping that I could get enough scores to be matriculated by a local university, which would make it easier for them to take care of me. For me, it would also be convenient to live in a city where I was born and raised. Well, I exerted every effort to achieve this goal but ended up failing them. My scores didn’t allow me to choose a good major if I persist in staying in that university.
Well, it took me three days to make the decision, which was actually not long as our school needed us to make a decision in a relatively shorter timeframe. However, this article is from Laokaoya website, the process of pondering on the pros and cons of a specific major and college tormented me quite a lot. You know, I had to consider this thing from both the geographic and educational perspectives.
The reason why I think it was difficult to make was that I actually had little experience or knowledge about the programs I was about to choose from. You know, my high school was merely about cramming for the exams instead of exploring the realms that I might potentially have a passion for. I really hope someone who had experienced similar situations could guide me at that time.
