For the business-level, Trader Joe’s adopted a differentiation focus strategy. According to our textbook with this strategy, Trader Joe’s seeks to differentiate in its target market. They rely on providing better service than broad-based competitors. Specifically, they focus on the special needs of the buyer in other segments (Dess, Page 159). Joe’s differentiates its self from other grocers by providing a unique shopping experience fortified with their private label goods and great service from their crew members. Their unique shopping experience stems from their smaller store locations with the chevron pattern. They don’t have a large array of products, but they provide high quality goods under their brand name that continues to attract customers.
Despite being a fast-food restaurant, Chick-Fil-A is widely known for its exceptional customer service. Part of the reason they have incredible customer service is because they have made it their mission to “get better before getting bigger.” Even though Chick-Fil-A has thousands of less stores than its competitors, it has made business all about the customer and it is paying off in large profits and continual growth. Chick-Fil-A’s customer service plan is two-fold: to go the “second mile” and to give the customers something to do. For example, Chick-Fil-A employees go the “second mile” by, “retrieving dental appliances from dumpsters or delivering smartphones and wallets that customers have left behind.” Lastly, Chick-Fil-A gives customers something to do by offering luring promotions, both ones that are well known and ones that are more secret.
Morehouse School of Medicine is an appealing option for pursuing my medical education. When reading Morehouse’s mission statement, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities grasped my attention. My clinical experiences revolve around communities that are underserved, and sharing the same mission as Morehouse is key to becoming the physician I aspire to be. One of the things that stood out to me about Morehouse is the student run Good Samaritan Health Center. I am very interested about being involved with God Samaritan, because it is akin to the Siloam Family Health Center that I volunteer at, and it is an embodiment of Morehouse’s mission. Impressively, this speaks volumes about Morehouse’s student body and their love for service, especially the special attention that is dedicated to the local community. This

Growing up in a small, rural community the majority of the population was uninsured and underserved. Access to primary healthcare was limited with most physicians’ offices being close to an hour drive one way. I grew up seeing both of my parents work two jobs and still having to make the decision to put their health on the back burner due to lack of finances or insufficient insurance coverage. This often led to numerous emergency department visits because of the lack of access to a primary care physician who could have provided preventative care. This was not only an issue within my home but throughout the town. The experience of witnessing family, friends and community members fall ill to diseases that could have been prevented with proper
