Undergraduate / admission essay (clear goals in medicine) [4]

Addresses your reasons for transferring and the objectives you hope to achieve.

I nervously sat in front of the television, squeezing my grandmother's hand. Glaring at what was before my eyes, I still remember the surgery scene of the Korean drama series, General Hospital. To be exact, it was an actual laparoscopic surgery and it showed the surgeon operating through a high-resolution monitor on a patient. Although it became a weekly routine at my grandparent's to watch television with them, surgery scenes of General Hospital absolutely fascinated me. As a young child, I admired the physicians and nurses and their approaches to the human body.

Throughout the years, I have become increasingly interested in the biomedical field, especially medicine that I have decided to pursue further study in the field. As I searched for a university that could enrich and prepare me for both of these fields, I discovered that the University of Virginia was highly distinguished in these areas and that UVA would greatly assist me in achieving my goal to become a physician.

I believe that if a person wants to get far in this world, he would have to have goals. Mine are clear and I feel that I can reach them through education at the University of Virginia. Currently, I am attending Northern Virginia Community College and plan to get Associate of Science Degree after the upcoming summer and with that I hope to transfer to The University of Virginia School of Medicine and then continue on to graduate school. I hope to use my learned skills and become a great physician. I understand that this is incredibly difficult but I feel that if you can dream it, you can achieve it.

After intense research between accredited universities, I have come to the conclusion that University of Virginia has the most prestigious and beneficial programs in our nation to enhance my skills to mold me to become the physician I hope to be in the future. I believe that UVA will help me to improve and broaden my knowledge in both academics and character. I know that UVA has an exceptional reputation that sets itself apart from other universities, and I hope to become part of the University to offer the best I can to the UVA community.
