Hello, I'm becoming a senior and planning to apply to Georgia tech early action. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you in advance and have a great day!
Prompt: Why do you want to study your chosen major at Georgia Tech, and how do you think Georgia Tech will prepare you to pursue opportunities in that field after graduation?
I'm fascinated by chemistry and I want have a job related to it
Chemistry is something that fascinated me since I first faced this subject in 7th grade. Although my friends didn't understand why I love chemistry so much, the chemical reactions and the chemistry behind them attracted me. When I first took a high school chemistry class in 10th grade, I dreamed of myself studying more complex and fascinating chemistry in university and having a job related to it. As I chose chemistry as my higher level subject and wrote an extended essay on chemistry, my interest and affection towards this subject got even bigger.
I googled universities that have chemistry courses, and I found Georgia Tech. When I opened "Georgia Tech Chemistry and Biochemistry" page, a video grabbed my attention. It was about a chemistry graduate student who works on metabolites to better detect cancer before it reaches a critical stage. My aunt, who is also my best friend, suffered from cancer and I was distressed for not being able to help her. After watching this video, I undoubtedly thought that I want to study at Georgia Tech. As I searched in depth about Georgia Tech, I realized it has systematic and organized programs that will support me after graduation. What I have learned at Georgia Tech will definitely help me pursue my passion in chemistry and grab the opportunity after graduation. I want to be a proud Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket.
