You want to create a survey to analyze various demographics' attitudes toward police brutality. What are some things you may consider as you create this survey?
Answers could include: 1. Reliability: Can a response to one question reliably predict a response to another? (ie, someone who says they hate ice cream will also likely answer "never" when asked how often they buy ice cream) 2. Accuracy: Are you actually answering your research question? 3. Question type: Can your research question be answered on a sliding scale? Do you need to be more open ended? Should there be a combination of both? 4. Accessing your demographic: If you are wanting to study college age women, for example, how would you access them in large numbers? Who is to serve as the comparison group? Are you accounting for all relevant variables? 5. Demographic questions: How do you ask these questions without producing bias in the response? 6. Practical considerations: Scope, length, cost, etc.
How do you make your answer to the "why XYZ university?" question stand out from the crowd?
Highlight every time you mention XYZ university in your essay. Replace it with the name of another university you are applying to. Does the essay still make sense? If it does, you probably aren't being specific enough! For example: "I really want to attend Columbia because I love the diverse and metropolitan atmosphere of New York City." A fair point, but you could replace Columbia with NYU, PACE, FIT, etc., and this would still be true. What does Columbia have that those other schools don't?
