So I ordered my cap and gown yesterday, and I should be getting my grad tickets sometime next week. Time is approaching so fast! I finally made the choice to take my LSAT in the summer, instead of waiting. I wasn’t sure if I was ready but there is no time better than the present. If other opportunities come up then maybe that route will be better, but I have a few options awaiting me!

40 days!

40 days away from graduation day!

Time is going by so fast.

My motivation is at an all time low; I guess senioritis is real!

Today I need to find some time in between classes to get my announcements ordered in the Student Union! But I have an exam at 5:00pm soooo I really just need to brush up on some of the material. Possibly I can find time for both.

Well back to class, guess I should be listening

This Saturday I remembered to take that CLA test. It really wasn’t that bad! It was basically a test about your critical thinking and writing abilities and how you would go about handling conflicts that are related to an organization and forming them into concise arguments.

I think I finished too early however because the computer was acting strange lol But I’ll be looking forward to the results in about a month or so; it will show where my skills compare to other college grads throughout the country. If the score is good enough it is something I will definitely put on my resume.

Oh Noooo!

I definitely forgot about that Collegiate Learning Assessment test I was going to take! I guess it just slipped my mind with everything else that is going on.

The next day I can take it is April 2nd at 3:00p.m. which is tomorrow!! I hope I don’t forget this time lol

Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) Details:

The CLA measures your critical thinking and written communication skills.

·         Your score report will include your strengths and weaknesses on these skills and compare your performance to other students at your school and nationwide.

·         The Council for Aid to Education (CAE), a nonprofit organization, conducts the CLA. Visit www.collegiatelearningassessment.org<http://www.collegiatelearningassessment.org> for more background.

·         Participation is voluntary. CLA is an online test administered in LRC 3rd floor computer center.

What’s in it for me?

·         Regardless of major or career ambition, the ability to think critically and communicate effectively is essential. The CLA tells you where you stand on these key attributes of academic and professional success.

·         Additional benefits to participation:

Individual Score Report: See how you did on each part of the test and how you compare to your peers (at your school and nationwide).  Show off your skills!!

Résumé Builder: Highlight your individual score and participation on your résumé. The report can be a strong competitive addition to your professional portfolio.
