Some advice? I'm actually finding this to be the most difficult out of all the essays. :/ I don't know what they want... Is it too vague?What motivated you to transfer to Rice University? Please be specific and limit your response to 200 words.
I will be graduating from community college in May, and there is no question that I will be continuing my education for a bachelor's degree at least. A transfer to one university or another is inevitable. I simply had to decide which would be the best school for me and for my interest in a major. I have considered going to several other four-year universities, but they are all significantly lower-ranked than Rice, and none of them reflect the same importance Rice places on high quality of education. It is very critical to me that I receive a well-earned degree at a school of good standing, and Rice has stood out to me above the others. I was especially impressed when I read about Rice's reliance on a strict student honor code, which I believe to be an admirable characteristic. With its impressive rankings, statistics, and reputation as among the best schools in the country, it is something that I would very much like to be a part of and which I would be extremely proud to be able to represent.
