An out-of-district student
Passionate and intrigued by the path of medicine, the vast amount of academic and professional opportunities that are available at Boston University are highly appealing to me. From programs such as the pre-medical tracks and focused pre-medical advising, Boston University is genuinely able to provide me with a focused and direct approach towards my passion and career. However, the strong community presence on campus at BU is what truly finalized my decision to apply.
Ever since my freshman year in high school, I strove to connect myself with the Oak Park community, one that was foreign to me as an out-of-district student. The unique way in which I accomplished this personal goal was through participating and leading the Oak Park Broadcasting Club. Understanding the strong bond that people share with sports, I felt that I would be able to not only immerse myself into the local community, but assist others in doing so as well. At Oak Park, I was determined to build a strong and tight-knit community through the power of sports, and continue to do so as the President of Oak Park Broadcasting in my senior year.
Being able to attend an institution that values community is what excites me most about attending Boston University. Allowing people to feel a part of a community is essential to promoting a successful and effective student experience. I feel that by bringing this unique approach to create an improved student life, I will be able to create a stronger community surrounding BU and maintain the tremendous amount of involvement in the campus that hosts over 34,000 students like me.
With this said, I am thrilled to continue to promote a strong and unique community, while also participating in the rigorous academics and excellent research programs, at Boston University.
I would really appreciate the feedback on the essay!!
