随笔:高考之际话高考

高考,对于中国人而言,绝对是除了出生和婚娶以外的一件大事。毫不夸张地说,高考几十年来,不知有多少年轻人,或踌躇满志,或彷徨迷茫,皆有高考改变了命运。如果说高考是唯一的出路,恐怕会有些偏颇。但是不得不说,对于大多数平民子弟而言,高考绝对是一个相对公平而廉价的上升通道。国人所最信奉的“鲤鱼跳龙门”恐怕在高考上得到了充分的体现。... Read More

Revisiting CSLG: A Two-day Trip

It can never be amazed for one, who are quite familiar with me, of knowing the Changshu Institute of Technology.  It is a small school focusing on engineering and science majors, locating in a small town near Suzhou. To mention it here in my blog means nothing to its contribution to the academic and industrial world, but purely that as my mother school where I spent my first two years of college life....

Towards PhD in UK: Applying for LUMS

最近真是时来运转。前阶段GRE的厄运终于过去了。最近好事儿是一桩接着一桩来,先是通过了中山大学的博士入学考试初试,接着是通过了雅思7分考试。而这两天我又得到个好消息。Lancaster University同意给我提供未来三年(四年)的博士学习奖学金。显然,这是一个非常不错的消息。要知道英国的奖学金非常少,全额奖学金更少。更不用说我的专业,Accounting & Finance,这个商科中的热门专业了。所以说,如果你要问我为什么可以拿到全奖,那我的答案只有两个字:运气!... Read More

Some Words For My Application: A Review

近阶段总是在忙活博士入学考试的报名和海外研究生院的申请工作。说实话,GRE的考试失利还是给我造成了不小的心理阴影。这不得不让我相信我家乡的谚语——“不听老人言,吃亏在眼前”。现在想来,可能是我当时也过于inherent了,Kuan的说法并没有错,GRE的Second Attempt的确是需要Confidence的,而且也是Consequenced的。无奈,我是个学会计的学生,成本-效益原则已经深深映入了我的脑海。如果说把托福考试和GRE考试仅仅当作学习英语的学费,似乎有点心有不甘。毕竟,作为学费,这个价格似乎有点高。更何况,对我这个穷光蛋而言。... Read More

Reading in Middle Night: Feel About Silence

image Due to the difference on the timing patterns at home and that on campus, I prefer reading at night these days. Unfortunately, the books that I am now reading is not a fiction, or some poems, but the electronically versions of textbooks, which are corporate finance, basic econometrics and accounting theory. All these books are written in English. In fact, I should have found some Chinese versions to read, which may accelerate my reading. But the question comes. That the books are pretty expensive, purchasing all these books can be a great bill. Then, to save up some money, I shall keep on reading the original version.... Read More

Goodbye! North America and My American Dream!

image Quite a long time I denied all the requests from my heart of writing a post in English, the reason can be quite simple. The failure on GRE directly abandoned me the American dream; what’s more, it deeply hurts my passion to my future life in years. In the past days, weeks and months, again and again, I have tried to imagine my life, a big house, a tenured position. But now, everything is gone. And, my purpose of learning this language has become invalid as well. Even till now, I don’t think the English can be useful for my graduate study in China, since most PhD candidates in the major of accounting are without good competence of foreign language, and such faults are also retained by most professors as well. in contrary, such competence may cause envy from colleague sometimes. ...

English Learning: Quite a Long Way to Go

Baby Study It is quite amazing that I found an article that was written by myself about five years ago on some suggestions of how to improve the English to the young students. It was invited by my dorm mate Ding who used to be the dean of the department of study, the student union of dept. of Software Engineering and it was scheduled for a presentation. But I was not that confident to take it ( I was of no experience on lecturing at that time), and then it was posted as printed. ... Read More
