I am thirsty for knowledge. As one of the best liberal arts college in the US, Bates is a haven for seekers of knowledge, freedom and justice. Bates has distinguished faculties focusing on teaching and research. Student population of Bates-intellectual, passionate, and friendly-forms an academically challenging environment which helps me meet my academic goal. Besides, the school's small size and a student-faculty ration of 10:1 mean that student/faculty interaction is plentiful, and close friendships are easily formed.
I am trying to form a global perspective. Bates has a diverse student body, and about 6% of students are international students. The students with different cultures and traditions study together, forming a friendly and diverse atmosphere, which help me gain a better and deeper understanding of other cultures. Besides, Bates offers opportunities to study abroad in more than 70 foreign locations and more than two-thirds of students take advantage of them. These opportunities are attractive for me to seek real-world experience.
I am interested in economics and would like to take it as my undergraduate major. I dream to use my knowledge to improve the bad economic conditions of my hometown. Economics is the most popular major and is also the best among Bates' best. I believe that study in Bates can definitely help me realize my dream.
Bates College is a good match for me. It would be my honor and prestige if I could attend Bates and achieve my goals.
Please give me some advice. Ｉam not good at writing "why essay" :)
