3. Why did you choose to apply to UCF?

From the moment I walked on to the UCF campus I knew that was where I belonged. Everything from the diversity of people to the educational outcomes and the comradely amongst friends that I could achieve made my decision that much stronger and intense. Looking into the reflection pond I saw a future filled with excitement, energy and endless possibilities. I am so excited and accept the challenges and prospects that lie ahead. I am fully committed to achieving success while extremely eager about becoming part of an extended family- one that I feel is connected by spirit, individuality, unity, and academic achievement. If I am given this opportunity I know I will be shaping my future, one that will be filled with leadership, hope, positiveness and adventure.

2. How has your family history, culture, or environment influenced who you are?
As I reflect back, I feel my family environment has shaped the person I am today and will allow me to become a better person tomorrow. Ever since I was little we moved around quite a bit. I have lived in eight houses in two different states and attended seven schools in my sixteen years. That forced me not only to open myself up to new people but also pushed me to become acclimated to new environments rather quickly. My family has always been closely connected so these changes were always viewed as adventures. I knew we were there for each other and nothing could tear us apart. Going off to college is a big step not only for myself but my family as well. ( I neeeeeeed to add something else but im not suree whatt!!!!)

Sounds like me :]

One thing you can definitely work on is adding specific experiences and relating to them. Think up of a main idea - how did your family influence you? Give a specific example and relate it to your thesis.

Just a question, are these short answers or full essays?

Oh I see. For 2), definitely try following the advice I gave above.

For 3, try to do the same. Be specific. What about UCF distinguishes it from others in your eyes. Don't plainly say, "it is beautiful." Try to look into the programs they offer. What do you want to major in? How will UCF help you achieve your future goals? Try to answer these questions specifically, and you should be fine.

It is time to tentatively choose an area of study... a field of interest that reflects the values you gained while growing up. Keep working! You are doing well.
