What are the unique qualities of Northwestern - and of the specific undergraduate school to which you are applying - that make you want to attend the University? In what ways do you hope to take advantage of the qualities you have identified?

I believe I am well-equip to become an excellent member of Northwestern's community. Once there, I will contribute not only the dedication and persistency expected of their students for success, but also a diverse perspective that my peers may not have. I am able to contribute these items due to the culmination of my academic and life experiences. I believe this institution will provide me the necessary tools to blossom and achieve my goal in life of becoming an Obstetrician/ Gynecologist. Acceptance into this university will give the peace of mind of being accepted into prestigious institution and allow me to focus on concepts that will make me a better doctor and well-rounded person.

With an interest in biological sciences, I will take every available opportunity seriously to pursue the major. I want to surround myself in the wide assortment of programs that Northwestern provides. The Weinberg College of Art and Science offers several interesting programs that I would love to participate in such as; undergraduate research, study abroad and internships. These programs, along with others, will hopefully provide me the necessary skills to be successful academically and socially. Needless to say, they will also place me in nurturing environment where I can receive the help and advice I need, while interacting with others who have the same or similar goals as me.

Additionally, I love Northwestern's diverse student body. I grew up surrounded by various cultures, and I believe myriad of cultures add a unique value to the learning experience in any institution. I am thrilled at the idea of being able to interact with students coming from all over the world and would want to learn more about them and their cultures. These individuals would bring a unique trait that will broaden my perspective of life. I hope that I will benefit from such a culturally prosperous environment at Northwestern, and I am eager to contribute to the diverse study body as an American born Guinean student.

I am also drawn to the various extra-curricular activities Northwestern provides. I believe there is more to an institution than its academics. In my ideal college, I would receive the best education in and outside of the classroom setting. Groups such as; 85 broads, Americans for Informed Democracy, Applied Medical Society, all interest me; furthermore, drawing me to this institution. I am also fascinated by the sorority life. As a little girl, I always pictured myself pledging to a sorority and I excited that Northwestern has an assortment of chapters for me to choose from. All of these extra-curricular activities will allow me the opportunity to provide community service while gaining leadership skills. Henceforth, these experiences will sculpt me into a well-round individual.

Ranging from its academics to diversity, I believe that Northwestern University has a lot of things to offer me. Once enrolled at this school, I pledge to do my best in my academic endeavors and to make the most out of my experience.

Sorry.... in fact there's a typo too :D
You said Northwestern provides necessary tools to achieve your goal. What I meant was that you better give some examples for such tools. For example, its research capabilities, expert staff, student community etc. You do this by the end of the para, but I guess you better briefly mention about them at this point and then link up with the rest.

Why I said so is because the prompt is directed at finding why you choose Northwestern. So you need to talk about its specific features and it should come sooner in your essay and not later.

For this institution, there is a 500-word cap and I am currently at 495. Do you think what I stated in the 3 paragraph sums up your suggestion?

diabatem: You have written really well but I think that you are not specific. The question asks you about the unique qualities of North Western and if you read your essay you ll notice that have not written any thing that is specific or unique about the N.Western. Replace N.Western with any other major university, all of the major universities offer intern ships, provide great research programs etc. Other than you have written about the tools that you think will help you in becoming Obstetrician/ Gynecologist ( any thing special about the depart, what are those tools...teachers or any thing else) talk about any particular research work that interests you the most.

Your extra curricular and diversity part is good ....i guess you just work a little on first two paras

I hope it helps :)
