Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 658
Chapter 658 – It’s easy to get a postgraduate recommendation
“Feng Yu, I want to take the postgraduate qualifying exams.My instructor said that those who completed Master will be able to remind inschool as a teaching assistant. She was one of them.” Li Na, who was in FengYu’s arms, said.
“You want to be a postgraduate student? Why do you stillneed to take the exams? Your university does not have a recommendation?” FengYu thought it was some important matters. It’s only continuing her studies. LiNa likes to study, then just consider. What’s the big deal?
University lecturers’ lives were more relaxed than highschool teachers. High school students were mischievous, and Li Na’s characterwill not be able to handle them.
“We do have recommendations. But I don’t have the chance toget it. I am not close to any lecturers in the university. I heard thatrecommendations are not based on the results. It depends on whether if thelecturers want to recommend you or not.” Li Na replied.
Li Na’s results were among the top in her school. If therecommendation was based on results, she should be getting one. But postgraduaterecommendations do not only look at the results of the student. It also dependson the lecturers and teachers’ recommendations.
“How’s the reputation of the course’s lecturer you aretaking? Does he have any hobbies or likings?” Feng Yu asked.
“I am not sure what he likes, and he has a good reputation.”
“What I meant is if that lecturer is an upright person withno desires.”
“I don’t think so. He had mentioned before in his lecturethat people should be flexible and adaptive to the environment. He also saidthat if he were not flexible in the past, he would be dead in the cowshed withhis friends.”
Feng Yu heard this and knew how to manage this lecturer.
Feng Yu got off the bed and went to the living room. He tookout 7 to 8 shopping cards from his bag: “Give one card to that lecturer and thehead of the department. Give one to your instructor and all other relatedteachers. Hmmm…… If there are extras, give the remaining cards to thatlecturer. Just tell him that you want a recommendation.”
Li Na was shocked. “You want me to bribe them? How can youdo this?”
Feng Yu immediately start to brainwash Li Na. “How can thisbe considered bribery? Do you know what day it is in two days?”
“Yes. It’s Teachers’ Day. It’s normal to give gifts to yourteachers. This tradition had been passed down since ancient times. During theolden days, you need to give teachers gifts for them to accept you as a student,and you still need to pay school fees and work for them for free. The teachercan also scold and hit you. During your teacher’s birthday or your teacher’swife birthdays, you also need to give them gifts. Have you given your teachersany birthday presents on their birthday? Have you treated them to dinnerbefore? That’s why you should show your appreciation of this coming Teachers’Day.”
“But from what you said, it should be enough to treat myteachers to a meal. Also, what are these cards? Shopping cards? The Tai HuaSupermarket’s shopping cards that are being advertised on the papers? The valueis…… 5,000 RMB?! It’s too much. This amount is too much! This is no longershowing my appreciation.” Li Na immediately places the cards on the table.
“Listen to me. It’s fine to give more. You are gettingknowledge from them and not learning their bad habits. Just think about it. Ifyou don’t give them gifts, other students will still give them. Then you willmiss your opportunity. It is your dream to be a teacher. You want to educatethe future generation, but isn’t it better if you can let more students beteachers like you?” Feng Yu continued his brainwashing tactics.
“Stop hesitating. It’s settled. Tomorrow when you go toschool, visit every teacher and give them these gifts. It is very tiring to sitfor the postgraduate entrance exams. Getting a recommendation is so muchconvenient. The time used to prepare for the exams can be put into better use,like going out to play. Let’s visit Guozijian next weekend to have a feel ofthe imperial university in the olden days.”
Li Na looked at Feng Yu speechlessly. Feng Yu seems to besomeone without ambition, but his businesses were doing well. His companies hadeven expanded to overseas. But to label him as someone ambitious, he keptasking Li Na to go out and play and don’t encourage her to study hard. Feng Yuwas a righteous person? No. He often asks Li Na to use his connections and gothrough backdoors. But if anyone calls Feng Yu as someone unrighteous, Li Nawill argue that Feng Yu had donated a lot of school buildings to many schools.
“Nana, I’m hungry.” Feng Yu gave a pitiful look to Li Na.
“We did not buy any groceries today. We can only havecongee. There is still an egg in the fridge.”
“I don’t want to eat that. I want to eat you. Come…… Tocelebrate getting a postgraduate recommendation, let’s have another round!”
“What sort of reason is this? You don’t…… Ah…….”
Li Na was unwilling to give gifts. In the end, she stillrefuses. So, Feng Yu got to do this on behalf of her. He will clear all obstaclesfor Li Na!
Feng Yu feels that there’s no need to donate anything to LiNa’s university. It cost so much more. Furthermore, this year’s plans were to donateto middle and high schools. This problem could be settled using less than 100thousand RMB. Why spend a few million?
Furthermore, Teaching University only has a few Postgraduatecourses. The university has enough funds from the ministry and school fees.
“Hi, Teacher Su. I am Li Na’s cousin, Feng Yu. I need todiscuss something with you
“Oh, Mr. Feng. Nice to meet you. How can I help you?”Instructor Teacher Su asked.
“It’s Teachers’ Day. According to our hometown’s custom, wemust treat the teachers for dinner. When are you free?”
Teacher Su was surprised. Hometown’s custom? Since when theNortheast have such traditions? I am also from the Northeast. How come I do notknow?
“There is no need for dinner. Li Na is doing well in school.A few days ago, I had suggested to her to continue her postgraduate studies.”
“I also heard that she wants to continue. This school shouldhave postgraduate recommendations. What do you think of Li Na?”
“I am not qualified to say anything about this. It’s thehead of the department and the lecturers who can decide.” Teacher Su’s facechanges when she knew Feng Yu was trying to go through the backdoor.
“I will speak to the head and lecturer. I am here today tothank Teacher Su for taking care of Li Na. Since you have no time for dinner,then it’s fine. I will go back now. I will treat you next time.””
Feng Yu left. Teacher Su walked Feng Yu to the door. Aftershe returned to her seat, she noticed there was a card on her desk.
She picked it up. It was the Tai Hua Shopping card. Thenewspaper and radio had been advertising this card. Oh my god! The value ofthis card was 5,000 RMB!
Teacher Su panicked. 5,000 RMB. This should be left behindby Feng Yu on purpose. I can’t help with this matter. The most I can do is tosubmit Li Na’s name for the recommendation. It’s the head of the department andlecturer that had the final say.
But this was a 5,000 RMB value shopping card. It was morethan Teacher Su’s annual salary + allowances!
