题目:Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Nowadays, neighbors depend on each other less than people in the past.

There is a fierce debate that some people believe that university students should attend classes if they select to go into the university, on the contrary, others argue that whether to attend the classes is an optional depending on arrangement the students make. From my point of view, students should be required to attend classes on force like many teachers do nowadays: check the attendance.
Some reasons to support my opinion. First of all, teachers not only go through the lecture materials in the class, but also they share their own experience which we can’t find in the book if students want to learn by themselves off the class. In the second place, you can’t imagine how attractive your classmates come out a good idea and discuss with you which is the best way to learn and promote. Thirdly, especially as for some academic courses, we should take more time and energy on it if we were absent from class. It leads to wasting time and not learning well eventually.
Students should manage their time properly with the limited time on campus. It is necessary for everyone to attend all the classes they choose and listen to the teacher carefully in order to a bright future.

GRE ISSUE: People who are the most deeply committed to an idea or policy are also the most critical of it. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.

It is argued that people who are the most deeply committed to an idea or policy are also the most critical of it. Considering that critical thinking skills is one of the cornerstones upon which science is grounded, I concede that the speaker’s assertion accord with the observation that perfectionists sometimes could be the fiercest critics of their own ideas and products, while remaining steadfast to the improvement and advancement thereof.  However, on balance, I disagree with this assertion, for it is an unfair generalization that overlooks many other cases, such as that of the concentration camp prisoners.

Indeed, in engineering and science, perseverance and self-criticism are two imperative ingredients whose synergic power has propelled the advancement of modern technology. One has to put aside his/her pride and ego in the quest of truth and transcendency. One of the most influential and lionized innovators of the 21st century, Steve Jobs was also a notorious perfectionist. During the development of the desktop computer, Macintosh, he remained so unrelentingly critical of the product, obsessively mulling over its every detail, that the product’s release was postponed for five years. Detractors might argue that undue self-criticism and search for perfection is a futile non-starter – for its unattainable nature. They might also argue that this obsession is pathological to some extent and should not be championed for by society, as it definitely had fostered detrimental amounts of stress in Jobs, which may have precipitated his bemoaned early death. While there are some merits to these arguments, the fact that Jobs’ commitment and his critical eye for any project coexisted during the course of his career is not to undermined. Neither of them should be downplayed in attributing all the admiration from the public he commanded as well as the inspiring milestones Apple arrived at under his reign.

Nonetheless, criticism, which requires detached scrutiny over the situation, does not always come hand in hand with commitment. The case of the prisoners in Nazi concentration camps, as recounted by Viktor Frankl in “Meaning of Life”, demonstrates the point. Trapped in extremities and tortured by inhumanities, prisoners only had two choices – they could either give up, kill themselves and end the meaningless sufferings on the spot or live on and accept the sufferings somehow. It was clear that the chance for any prisoner to walk out of the concentration camp was abysmally dim. Were all the prisoners who made the latter choice so illogical? The striking commonality among the survivors pointed us to look in another direction: though disparate, they all found reasons, that is, meaning, for stomaching the sufferings. As Nietzsche elegantly put, “he who has found a why to live for can bear almost any how.” It was not that the prisoners that chose to bear the sufferings were illogical – they found reasons to justify their choice – but the situation called for unquestioning faith that was incompatible with undue self-doubt and criticism that would have surfaced with hardheaded analyses.

To sum up, while in areas such as engineering and science, both perseverance and self-criticism have often turned out to be the indispensable ingredients amounting to excellence, the speaker’s claim do not square with observations arising from areas outside of the science community. Sometimes, as proven by the Nazi concentration camp survivors, on top of perseverance, the “irrational” unconditional faith is just as useful as the detached, scientifically valued self-criticism.
