I have less than 6 hours for EA
this is the essay for the U-M supplement... i need you guys' opinion ASAP!
Describe the unique qualities that attract you to the specific undergraduate College or School (including preferred admission and dual degree programs) to which you are applying at the University of Michigan. How would that curriculum support your interests?
Many people around me tell me they are impressed with my broad interest and talents-from the music to the academics-and I know that
I have always had a passion for new experiences and ideas. With such a variety of interests, I have been struggling with discovering which field really attracts me most. However, recently I have thought more deeply about my future plans and found out one school with a combination of three vast fields of academics: the College of Literature, Science, and Art at the University of Michigan.
At times, I dream of being a surgeon. When I think of the word "surgeon," I recall the miracles I have experienced in my life thanks to certain surgeons. Without them, I could have lost two important people in my life. My grandfather has suffered from diabetes and long-term complication of cardiovascular disease. Memories of him are mostly from a hospital; he could not even walk due to the disease. My aunt was diagnosed with uterine cancer. I now realize how important surgery is to human life. Medicine can alleviate symptoms, but could not cure diseases completely. After witnessing my family's experiences, my interest in medical field increased more than before.
The University of Michigan, with one of the top medical schools in the United States, and the LS&A School, being the integral part of the University of Michigan, is a perfect place for me to pursue my path. The name itself includes three different fields of study that seems not related; nonetheless, they are all working in harmony with each other as a functioning school. Besides, many of University of Michigan's graduates have become significant leaders in the world of science, and many breakthrough discoveries have been made right within U-M's walls. Studying within a circumstance with such a rich history, I will receive an exceptional experience. I also can see myself learning from U-M's renowned science professors, having many class choices-with 63 different sections of Chemistry!
In addition, without a doubt, U-M is one of the most multicultural schools in the country. Being an international student, I always feel comfortable around people ethnically and nationally different from me. Whenever I visit the campus, I could not be more surprised with the diversity. I remember in my college visit of the U-M's admission officer's explaining diversity of U-M with exuberance. Without a doubt, the explanation grabbed my interest and attention.
I cannot deny that I have always been attracted to the field of science, but my decision can completely change by the time I even enter college. I am convinced that at the University of Michigan-with its exceptional academics in Literature, Science, and the Arts-will be a perfect place to start my path and enhance my talents.
This is good, but talk more about why you are interested in science. Of course you want to help people, but you can help people in other ways too. Why the medical field?
Mind reading mine? It's the last comment in the thread I created.
Thanks and good luck :)
