Describe your academic objectives and indicate how these are appropriate to your long-range goals.

Please include specifically how a Bachelor's degree from the University of Toronto will contribute to your achieving your longer-range goals. (100 word maximum)

UofT's econ program, special topics courses and TEEL lab opportunities excite me. These coupled with the summer abroad program which I intend to take will help me understand socio economic issues like poverty and quality education in cultures unlike my own such as South Africa who have faced similar upheavals like Bangladesh, my home country. Though these topics are of key interest I also believe most opportunities and access to education are skewed male. The interventions needed in school curriculums and changes policies needed can be understood through the multidimensional immersion offered at UofT. I see studying under award winning professors who specialize in areas of research such as poverty and behavioral economics like Prof. Gazzale, Ann Armstrong to mention a few.The defining part of university are its people , and UofT's vibrant and intellectually stimulating curious individuals is where I want to be in.

Exciting you is one thing. How does these mentions relate to the long term plans? Why are these courses important to your goal? How do these lend to the concrete foundation of your long term goals? Do not use empty statements that are devoid of clear connecting responses. Do not just meet the word count. Focus on making yourself understood. This is an oral interview afterall. Any hesitation, such as this type of response, tells the reviewer you have not done your homework and have not really used a solid criteria as the basis of your university choice.

I am not exactly sure how this program lends itself to the focus of the prompt. It is actually a confusing reference that sounds little thought out and developed in terms of presentation clarity.

Rethink your responses. These do not contain any reference to long term career goals and the relationship of your studies, the university, and academic goals with your future career intentions.
