Miscelleneous Short Answer Questions
Tell us about one of your proudest achievements or moments and what it says about you.
One of my proudest achievements was receiving a B in AP English and Language Composition. This may seem counter-intuitive as many would expect higher grades to be considered achievements, but in this case not for me. Prior to my sophomore year, I had pride that I received all A's and vowed that I would never receive a B. At the end of my first semester, as a sophomore, I saw my final score was not enough to earn an A. For the first week of my winter break I spent mulling over my grade, but the second week I realized that this mindset would lead me to failure solely. I decided to rather rejuvenate for the rest of my break and use this as a learning opportunity for next semester. From this point on I didn't go to class to earn an A, but rather to actually enjoy the material and work hard. Overtime, this new mindset led me to have a better mental state and I began enjoying all my classes without a fear of not getting an A.

Science has been my favorite subject. The mathematics and critical thinking necessary has led me to failure multiple times, but that failure helps me to persevere. The journey from failure to achievement keeps me motivated.

My favorite book is Holes as it depicts a story of a shy boy whose experiences I can relate to. My favorite movies are Interstellar, The Matrix, and Mission:Impossible-Fallout

What is the compliment that you have been paid that you are most proud of? Who gave you the compliment?

I would form a MCAT tutoring club where anyone can prepare together for this admission test without feeling the need of spending their money on expensive preparation classes.
