Lawrence Rice English – 091 Leslie McGuire October 22, 2008 104-644488 Essay 1 Why I Chose Baker College In the past I got confused, quit school and never looked back. I did this not even knowing why I was confused. Baker has a program called the Counseling and Academic Planning. They have Academic, Career and Personal Counseling. They say Counseling…….Just a footstep away – Baker Handout. All counseling sessions will be held in confidence unless the student agrees that certain information may be shared with others. Baker is also reasonable with their prices for tuition. They make it easy and affordable to attend. They work extremely hard to get you into school and to enrollin the classes that you need. Unlike most colleges who have you take classes that do not even pertain to your career. They have student loans, pell grants, etc. to help with cost. If you can’t get any grants or loans, they have an easy payment plan. The teachers at Baker are wonderful. They really care about you doing well in their classes so they go that extra mile to help you. There isn’t a stupid or funny question to them. They also give you their email address, school number and will stay after class to help you. They want you to succeed as much as you do. It is not like they do it because it is their job they do it because they really do care. With teachers like that, you want to do better yourself. So that’s why I chose Baker College; the teachers are dedicated to the students, they have a great counseling and the cost is affordable. I am eager to complete the schooling and start my career. I think that I will enjoy my time with baker.
