Describe an important choice you had to make in your life.
You should say:
When you had to make this choice
What you had to choose between
Whether you made a good choice
And explain how you felt when you were making this choice.
I guess the most important choice I made was to study abroad. I made the choice last year，when I just graduated from the university. Upon graduation I faced a fork（2） in my future way: to pursue my postgraduate study abroad or to start a decent job like most of my classmates.
Actually，it had been my dream to further my study in Britain or Australia. But on the other hand，I had received at least two offers from different companies with whom I interviewed，which was really hard-won in the competitive job hunting. And more importantly，the salary they would offer was quite appealing. It was really a tough choice，so I asked my parents and friends for advice. Unsurprisingly，most of them tried to talk me into the choice to receive the job. Studying abroad，they said，would cost lots of time and money. In addition，it was unpredictable whether I would get such a good job even if I returned with a Master’s Degree.
What they said seemed reasonable，but to my mind，the experience of getting improved mattered more. I didn’t want to be stuck into the nine-to-five grind at such an early age. What’s more，I had prepared for studying abroad for over one year，learning English and taking classes on relevant subjects. There was no reason giving up my dream and pursuit. After the sound consideration，I made my choice to further my overseas study. Although it’s still hard to say whether it was a good choice or not，I feel pleased that I hold onto my wish.
