Answer:

College essays are imperative to the application process; it allows the reviewer to peer into experiences you have encountered and how these have molded you into a prospective student. I definitely have a few tips from my experiences brainstorming how to begin my college essays! 1) Create an outline: lay all your thoughts of what you want to include, experiences relevant to the topic, etc. Then use your outline to jot down a rough first draft. It's okay if it isn't perfect; it isn't supposed to be the first time. 2)Pick an angle you want to focus on! Be detailed and specific and reference specific examples to back up your claims. 3)Write honestly! Don't try to write for the admissions board, make sure you stay true to your unique writing style; they will appreciate your honesty! 4)Get feedback from trusted peers, teachers, people who can help improve your draft. Consider the feedback, but make sure the paper is written in your own voice and words. In other words, don't make too many changes which would also change your unique writing style.

What were the main causes for the outbreak of World War I?

Answer:

There are a multitude of factors which ultimately led to the conflict. I have seen the causes appropriately developed into an acronym: MANIA. Militarization: nations were competing with each other to quickly develop a strong militant force; they were preparing for war Alliances: nations were forming pacts promising one another protection and aid if threatened Nationalism: strong, often overzealous pride in one's nation. Ex: the Slavic people wished to no longer be a part of Austria-Hungary, leading to an ethnic revolt and the assassination of the Austro-Hungarian leader, Franz Ferdinand Imperialism: nations implementing their culture or taking over another nation both politically and economically; nations did this in order to increase their power and wealth Assassination: the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which was the immediate cause of WWI. It resulted in Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia. Since Serbia was protected by Russia, Russia soon declared war on Austria-Hungary. Germany, in an alliance with Austria-Hungary was forced to declare war on Russia.
