Comment on the following statement:
|School classmates make the best friends.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that school classmates make the best friends, whereas others do not agree.
I think that university mates make the best friends. First of all, they chose the same specialty as you, so your humanitarian or technical level is approximately the same. Usually, people with the same vision understand each other better, which is a good platform for good friendship. Secondly, exams in university are way harder and students have to team up to pass them successfully.
At the same time there are people who say that first friendship is the strongest. Schoolmates go through the very important life periods together like first love, first success, first disappointment etc. That makes their friendship the strongest.
In my opinion these people have a point. First things usually make the deepest impressions. “I will never forget my first car”, some people say. Nevertheless, students in university experience the same things but on another level. The last impressions remain in your consciousness stronger.
In conclusion, I would like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support schoolmate friendship against the university one, we'll see the facts that support university friendship outweigh those against.
