Hi, Thanks for reading and critiquing this.
I will gladly read and critique yours too.
Any feed back will be appreciated THANK YOU.
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?
Seventeen years have gone by in a flash, its time to apply for University!
In my college search, and life in general, I never settle for seconds. Some say I have the taste of a wine connoisseur: I crave for the best. First I look at appearance. My aesthetic sides calls for scenery. But my penchant for modernization calls for urban settlements. Next I need to attain a feel for the place. I need to see its appeal, its community, and its diversity. Then I visualize myself at the university. What I can accomplish there? How can I take advantage of what it has to offer? Finally, just like the aftertaste, I look at how I can contribute to society after attending a certain university. These are the requirements in my search and for some reason (maybe my standards are too high) close to none universities pass. But one expectation is Northwestern University. It satisfies all my whims and much more. The campus is lovely and the city of Chicago is in close proximity. It's history dates back to 1851. There are students from all fifty states and over fifty countries - all endorsing a variety of backgrounds.
Can I take advantage of the several research opportunities offered at McCormick? Of course! I will do extensive research with the state-the-art technology Northwestern is able to offer. I will expand my knowledge through hands-on activities and improve my laboratory skills. I will join the hundreds of student organizations and use it not only as a web to socialize but also as groups where members collaborate, in order to reach common goals and discuss intellectual interests. I will enroll in the special certificate program, Certificate in Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering, and take advantage of the in-depth preparation for my future graduate study in biotechnology. I will get a head start.
For wine, it's all about the aftertaste. For a university, it's all about contribution to society after attending it. The special programs and extracurricular activities I will join at Northwestern prove to play a pivotal role in my dreams to become a bioengineer. Even before my graduate school begins, I will have exercised my interest in engineering and biology - in ways that provoke me and in ways that are not restrained by the course curriculum. The world-acclaimed engineering department and innovative programs cannot be found in any other university.
Collectively, as a whole, I look at the combined factors of a university (appearance, feel, and advantages of attending) to establish the following properties: Complexity and Character: Potential: and Possible faults. From the diverse social backgrounds to the rewarding programs at McCormick, Northwestern truly deserves an A+ and attending would definitely not be a fault. If Northwestern were a wine, I would certainly enjoy it (when I am of age of course).
