Hello, I am applying to Davidson and it is my favorite school. I'm just overly worried because I procrastinate and have no teachers to look over this. It is due on January 1st, and I desperately want help! I never get a chance to visit the school, so I cannot talk much about the campus. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
Why Davidson? (300 words limit)
Life gives me chances, but I make my own choices.
I am not an American well-rounded student who plays three sports, draws perfect circles, and has a thousand volunteer hours. Chances are that diffidence will swallow me up as I face Davidson's "well-rounded" 2018 class. My choice is to ignore other applicants to fight for the place that I will call home - a tight-knit community in which individuality is emphasized and developed - in the next four years It is an incredible honor to sit down and discuss my personal interests with world-class educators. It is even a more incredible honor to be trusted by whom to have take-home tests and schedule my own exams. Davidson's Honor Code will build my trust in others and others' trust in me. As I desire, dream, and plan to be a pediatric neurologist, I understand that the mutual confidence between me, the children, and their families is very important. The Honor Code, therefore, will challenge and confirm my integrity so that when I look at a mentally defected child in ten years, I can believe that she is trying her best to get better. For this particular reason, it is best for me to expand my medical knowledge in the resourceful and thought-out Pre-Medicine program at Davidson.
In spite of everything I have read, heard, and watched about Davidson, I must admit that I am not as familiar to Davidson's residency, people, and facilities as others who have dreamed about the school for their entire lives. Chances are that I am not the right student for Davidson for now, but I believe it can make me exactly who I want to be in the next four years. Despite of all the chances, I choose Davidson College.
