  1. Judging by the tags, it's still about philosophical, so let me insert my penny. Because in the end, it's a hell of a lot of fun.

    Of course, you can throw such a serious argument as “basic humanitarian education”, but the admissions committee will say this without me. In a good way, the beauty is that in a few years you can learn to really work phenomenally with the text, finding clues and clues there, as well as learn to talk simply about complex things. But the most valuable thing, as for me , is the development of a critical view of the surrounding reality, because philosophy, in essence, raises questions, and does not solve them. A nice bonus: logic and argumentation theory are the disciplines that really help even in everyday life. Plus-the ability to quickly navigate in any of the areas of your own activity (all of the above will come in handy here), the very interdisciplinarity that philosophy often boasts of.

    However, I must warn you that all this extravagant package of knowledge will almost certainly make you a bore and a snob. Such cases.

  2. The reason is the most banal – I have never been given exact sciences. I was much more interested in history, mythology, and foreign literature than in what I considered boring mathematics. At the age of nine, I started writing poetry, then short stories. I'm still writing and improving. Well, after I graduated from high school, I was sure where I wanted to go.

  3. For example, I wanted to understand what kind of world I found myself in, who exactly I am, and how to deal with all this. At the age of 17, I decided this… Whatever knowledge exists in the world, it is all expressed through speech, so the first thing I need to learn is languages. Therefore, the Faculty of Philology. The second is psychology. Because any knowledge about this world we receive (or produce) through the prism of subjective perception. Knowledge of the world is not separable from the knower of the world-man. Well, after that – physics, chemistry, mathematics and other exact sciences.

    But in my first year of philology, I got acquainted with the alternative of Western science and at the same time got answers to all my questions.

    I was also in love with a graduate student in philology. 🙂 Which was also a strong argument.
