I believe that life is shaped by unique ambitions that seem so magical at a young age. My life so far has been a striking example of this. Ever since my childhood biology and especially medical sciences have never failed to fascinate me. One of my distinct memories from middle school is a lecture on cell biology and physiology. I was amazed at how something so microscopic could be so well-organized and carry out functions that have such a profound effect on the entire organism.
I would also be surrounded by like minded individual that would help motivate me to pursue my dreams. As mentioned before, I have a passion for conducting experiments to expand my knowledge; I believe through the Honors College I would be able to find other interested students, and obtain the grants and funds necessary to conduct research projects. Currently I am working on a cognitive neuroscience and educational analysis research project with other undergraduate students and few graduate students. We are measuring fluid intelligence with matrix reasoning and using the data to predict tested individual’s success in educational and professional environments. If inducted into the Honors college I could design, plan, and execute projects of similar real world
Math has always been one of my stronger subjects in school because it comes easy to me. I also have a huge interest in science classes as well. That has helped me make my decision in being a surgical oncologist. I have now done some research on this career to see if it is right for me and to see if it is what I want to do with the rest of my life. Hard work and dedication will pay off.
I consider myself a diligent, enthusiastic student, eager to meet challenges and quick to assimilate concepts, as I excel in the classroom as well as outside of it, which is why I’m sure I would extremely benefit from the EMSAP program, I’m confident this program will provide me the experience of an academic preparation that will help me obtain acceptance into medical school; not only would I personally benefit from the academic advising and mentoring but I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of the EMSAP program to gain acceptance into the University of Texas Medical Branch at
After filling out FAFSA I have found my financial situation to be just short of ideal, and shown through my years of hard work and dedication to education I believe that I am qualified for the university scholarship. As a student eager to become a Temple Owl the wide variety of classes and activities would not just keep me busy outside of school, but further enhance my college experience overall. I am a student eager to study computer science, a field that connects to my interests in gaining a broader understanding of computer concepts and software. The wide options in careers including software developers are ideal for me due to the courses ' abilities to mold
Once in college, I found that chemical engineering was much more exciting than I had imagined it to be. The core subjects of chemical engineering have applications in so many fields that a chemical engineer can apply his knowledge to many diverse areas. In this rich and vibrant research scenario, I want to combine core concepts with synthetic chemistry to solve challenging
Now as a high school senior, my interest in neuroscience has since blossomed into a passion. I have always harbored a love or the sciences, and neuroscience is not only interesting to me on an individual basis, but the interdisciplinary nature of the field allows me to sample concepts from all matters of subjects. This is especially important to me, who envisions a potential career in medicine, where interdisciplinary concepts are abundant. At Penn, I am especially excited about the Biological Basis of Behavior Program, which not only focuses on interdisciplinary education, but also independent research. Classes such as “Human Chronobiology and Sleep” and “Neuroscience and Society” are particularly intriguing because they follow very closely to the neuroscience topics that brought about my interest in the field.
In fact, I am surprisingly capable of visualizing my chemistry classes just by listening to the lecture of the day. It is why I’ve always been fascinated by science. On the other hand, I can’t seem to watch Casper the friendly ghost until I was 14. Lefties also seem to have a better chance of having a high IQ, or being considered a genius. Twenty percent of all Mensa members say they are left-handed, and among the famous “smart” lefties: Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, and Isaac Newton.
Growing up, I attended a private school that was academically prestigious, but I was never looked at as academically gifted. Quite frankly, I thought of myself as the opposite: a student who did not fit in because my grades were average, and I had to put in much more effort to understand the material in comparison to the other students. Throughout my struggles in school, the adults I could count
Each day that passes, I get more passionate and excited about my future as a medical student, and eventually a surgeon. Up until my junior year of high school, I didn’t know what type of surgeon I wanted to be. I was assigned a junior project, where I researched schools, and most importantly my career plans. That’s when I decided that a reconstructive plastic surgeon is what I wanted to become. I am a perfectionist and I like to take my time so that I can take pride in my work.
