My 2nd semester will start soon. I have classes for full week. And yeah.. have many reasons to decide like this. Master course in Korea, need at least 45 credits include thesis writing. Students need to work very hard or can be said, no more social life, otherwise, your scores will be worse. For my case, I can have a long vacation 5 months per year, but for my friends who studies science, they have labs which means vacation in a year is around 2 weeks long and also their working hours should be from morning till night to be able to get home. However, to get one thing you have to lost one thing, and you have to choose for a better good or future good or whatever your priority or value that you give to.
Before starting semester, students have to register course, we must be quick and ready. Search for all info we need about the course and professor (quality, workload, and especially how prof. grade us), some professor can be torturing on grading but some give us chance to get up even if we fail the mid-term, and some look more on our participation in class, and some are just paper based performance. Therefore, junior students seek for their senior to get recommendation about courses and professor. See? If one prof. is loved by many students the next generation will be queue up to study with him/her, while the classroom size is limited, course registration should be a quick as lightening.
From this semester on, I will have 3 days, while Thursday are count to work on assignment from school, I no longer a free spirit students. However, I’m glad for that because I can concentrate more and working harder than before. (Every student always have this feeling before semester starts . lola)
