I'm pretty sure this goes in this section, I'm new, so if it doesn't feel free to move it.
I'm a junior in highschool, and I have to write an essay for application to this Governor's School program. It is for a 4 week program during the summer to a certain Governor's School. (In my case its the Engineering one.) It has to be 200-250 words, and it has to indicate why we wish to attend the certain Governor's School.
This is my essay, its 228 words:
Since I was in third grade I knew that I wanted to do something with mathematics. During my time in high-school I have been introduced to several mathematical courses, such as Physics and Calculus, that I found intriguing and fun. I also have been attracted to technology since I was very little. When I was looking at possible majors for college, I was instantly attracted to the ones concerning Engineering. By studying Engineering as my major in college, I could also pursue a career in Engineering as well. I would love to use my interest in math and technology in my future career to work on improving the world through Engineering.
I would like to go to Rutgers School of Engineering because this would introduce me to the college studies of Engineering. I would like to experience the course as well as the challenges of being in such a program. This program would expose me to how the major would be once I get to college. It would influence me in that I would see what the schedule is like, and it would also show me how I should prepare for the major during my last two years of high school. Overall, this program would be an excellent experience that I would love to be a part of and would be an excellent influence on my life.
Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you.
