Could you please tell me what do you think about these short answers? Thanks for your help; I'll make sure to help you back. :)

- Name the secondary school teacher who has most influenced you and briefly explain why. (200)
Name (Literature)

She fostered me with passion. Deeply loving her profession, she inspired me to immerse in the beauty of Arts. Her insight pushed me towards deeper layers and helped me open new doors to my horizon.

- What subjects most interest you and why? (Note: This is not a commitment to major in this area.) Characters available 400
The perfection of nature has always been object of observation and amazement to me. In Biology, my imagination found freedom and my innate curiosity led me into infinite series of why-s, which I could not always answer. Yet, this has not held me back, on the contrary, it has motivated me to expand my limits, trying to reach for depths that have not yet been discovered. I have thirst for knowledge.

- Do you have a tentative (or firm) career plan (or dream)? Please describe it. (400)
My immutable attraction to Biology makes me consider Neuroscience a great possibility for my future. Neuroscience is compatible with my passions, since it blends both humanity and science, both brains and emotions. In a field as Neuroscience, where many potentially life-revolutionizing questions are still unanswered, I am thrilled by the possibility to discover and to make a change.

- Why are you interested in Carleton College and how did this interest develop? (300)
Carleton amazes me with the freedom it radiates. I do not want to simply learn; I want to experience, to share my unusual ideas with unique, diverse people. I want to explore, to stroll down the Carleton Arb and lay in (is it lay in or lay on?) the green of the Lyman Lakes. As Carletonians say "I want to embrace life fully".

-From your reading, whether children's books or classics, what books or authors have particularly impressed you and why? (500)

The place of honor in my bookshelf and in my art-loving heart belongs to Remarque. As I walk through his lines, I feel the innermost importance that humanity has in shaping a person. I love the sensitivity, passion, and philosophies of life of his characters. They all live under the pressure of war and in this atmosphere of anxiety, insecurity, impotence to change the present and to predict the future, they taught me that the only way to live is by loving and being loved.

To the moderators: please do not merge this post with my "why brown" post like you did last time, they are completely different things!

I want to explore, to stroll down the Carleton Arb and lay in (is it lay in or lay on?) the green of the Lyman Lakes

I have thirst for knowledge.

I have a thirst for knowledge

My immutable attraction to Biology makes me consider Neuroscience a great possibility for my future

Wouldn't it be better as ,makes me consider that Neuroscience is a great possibility...

Why are you interested in Carleton College and how did this interest develop?

You havent finished? Im asking because you didnt describe how the interest developed.Just why.

Well written and clear answers. Nothing which needs to be necessarily changed. Just two questions which aren't fully answered.
