Covid-19 has exercised much of what it deems as necessary measures to ensure that it may only infect the most careless of individuals. These individuals have been seen lack luster and not at all thrilled in taking safety measures to protect themselves and others around them. Some have even gone beyond any logical means to distance themselves from Covid-19 and instead, opted to celebrate Covid-19. In hedonistic fashion, The Associated Press reported students in the U.S have thrown parties and intentionally invited learners who have tested positive for Covid-19. The Associated Press further states that “Attendees put money in a pot, and whoever catches disease first gets cash.”
Although, the Associated Press references much speculation to these activities; the few participants have been corroborated in their careless lifestyle by high ranking officials in Tuscaloosa. The event that was held in Alabama has been verified by Sonya McKinstry, Tuscaloosa City Councilor and Tuscaloosa Fire Chief, Randy Smith. Both of whom would not speak on the University the students were enrolled into.The attitude of students that are already in admission of colleges and universities pay little concern or show sympathy to the students that are breaking traditional routes during this epidemic.
These future hopefuls tug away at the institutions for the mere possibility to interview and seek out admission. Many of these hopefuls are facing an uphill battle already, and the disruption to public health has left much uncertainty to what their lives may become. Students are to realize that many of the circumstances that may provide a means for their education to continue would be the exception in the coming decade. They wonder if it will shade their hard work and perseverance when entering the job field many years into the future. The John Hopkins Newsletter, which is published by the students enrolled at Johns Hopkins, states that schools “have made their admission process more flexible in response to the school closures, test cancelations and shutdowns that took place in the spring due to COVID-19.”Mattoon, a reporter for the John Hopkins Newsletter, says the “changes include accepting pass/fail grades and taking a holistic review of applicants who may have struggled to fulfill clinical experience.”These actions increase the chances of college bound students but as Mattoon points out “the number of applicants has risen 17% from the previous year.”The increase in applicants was partly due to those who applied without the scores from their MCAT entrance exams.
Many MCAT testing facilities were closed and schools would not accept online tests due to security concerns.COVID-19 has given students much to consider in the upcoming years, many of whom will enter the job field with a chip on their shoulders.
Some with a new https://www.scmp.com/news/world/united-states-canada/article/3091623/us-students-throw-coronavirus-parties-infect-guestssense of overcoming adversity, but all with a renewed sense of character no matter what events hold true in the coming years.
