The everyday understanding of common sense derives from philosophical discussion involving several European languages. Related terms in other languages include Latin sensus communis , Greek κοινὴ αἴσθησις ( koinē aísthēsis ), and French bon sens , but these are not straightforward translations in all contexts. Similarly in English, there are different shades of meaning, implying more or less education and wisdom: "good sense" is sometimes seen as equivalent to "common sense", and sometimes not. [2]

"Common sense" has at least two specifically philosophical meanings. One is a capability of the animal soul (Greek psukhē ) proposed by Aristotle , which enables different individual senses to collectively perceive the characteristics of physical things such as movement and size, which all physical things have in different combinations, allowing people and other animals to distinguish and identify physical things. This common sense is distinct from basic sensory perception and from human rational thinking, but cooperates with both. The second special use of the term is Roman-influenced and is used for the natural human sensitivity for other humans and the community. [3] Just like the everyday meaning, both of these refer to a type of basic awareness and ability to judge that most people are expected to share naturally, even if they can not explain why.

    Integrative bargaining is important because it usually produces more satisfactory outcomes for the parties involved than does positional bargaining.

    My common app topic didn't really fit with one of the prompts either. For every school I applied to, I chose a different topic based on what I knew about that school and generalizations I made. For example, I'm applying to a pretty artsy school (among others) so I chose Topic of Your Choice for that school, because they value people who think outside the box, etc. Also: For another school that made me write another essay in the supp, I chose Significant Experience, because the other essay was Topic of Your Choice. Anyway, I'm sure it doesn't matter too much.though I wouldn't pick the diversity one if I were you. Good luck applying :)

    The answer may very well depend on the individual school. In any case do the best that you can on both essays./

    Common sense is a basic ability to perceive , understand , and judge things that are shared by ("common to") nearly all people and can reasonably be expected of nearly all people without need for debate. [1]

Related terms in other languages include Latin sensus communis , Greek κοινὴ αἴσθησις ( koinē aísthēsis ), and French bon sens , but these are not straightforward translations in all contexts.

    No other system matches the diversity of colleges and universities accessible through the Common App. Explore and apply to schools across the world.

    There is no need to repeat your applicant details for every college on your list.  Enter your information one time and use it to apply to multiple schools.

    There are over 500 Common Application members in 47 states and the District of Columbia, as well as in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Qatar, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. All these institutions have a common commitment to a holistic approach to the admissions process. This commitment means they want to assess you on more than just the numbers test scores and GPA. They give significant consideration to your essay responses. Your required and supplemental essays are your chance to tell these schools more about you.

    The prime time to write your Common Application essay is during the summer before your senior year. You have the time to focus on writing your essay. Usually the Common Application website takes a break (is not accessible) for about a week at the end of July to update the site. By August 1st it is typically back up and running.

    We started by reviewing the prompt for the Common App transfer essayt:   “Please provide a statement that addresses your reasons for transferring and the objectives you hope to achieve.” (250-650 words)

    Unlike the regular Common App prompt for incoming freshman, this prompt was less open-ended, and wasn’t looking for a classic “personal statement” essay.

    Win-win outcomes occur when each side of a dispute feels they have won. Since both sides benefit from such a scenario, any resolutions to the conflict are likely to be accepted voluntarily. The process of integrative bargaining aims to achieve, through cooperation, win-win outcomes.

    Win-lose situations result when only one side perceives the outcome as positive. Thus, win-lose outcomes are less likely to be accepted voluntarily. Distributive bargaining processes, based on a principle of competition between participants, are more likely than integrative bargaining to end in win-lose outcomes--or they may result in a situation where each side gets part of what he or she wanted, but not as much as they might have gotten if they had used integrative bargaining.

    I thought it was well structured, but you need to make some spell checking and a few other corrections. Do not use contractions such as "didn t" in an essay. It has to be more formal. And a couple of punctuation polishing, such as the second sentence: "First off, I did not. (.); secondly, none of my friends (.)". Towards the middle: "There were sessions (.). that the people I saw everyday had been through such horrible things. Now I do not miss a meeting, and I strongly encourage (.)." "NCBI has taught me to appreciate the life I have, and if I think that my problems are bad, somebody else has worse problems THAN my own." I think you just need to make these little corrections in punctuation and spelling, sentence structuring, but I think you did greatly overall!
