What motivated you to apply to Rice University? (200 word limit)
I was attracted by how Rice offers numerous undergraduate research opportunities and close interaction with world-class experts. I want to conduct breakthrough research on the brain and cognition with the GATEWAY program, and I am deeply interested in Rice's new neuroscience minor that has finally been approved after years of development. I will take advantage of a Rice education to prepare for a medical profession and enter the World Health Organization and help people who have no access to health care otherwise.
The residential college system at Rice will help me cultivate a wide variety of interests, as I will be surrounded by a diverse group of people, and learn how to form networks. I am also interested by the proliferous chances for internships and community service at Rice. I believe Rice will fulfill my desires for a challenging academic curriculum balanced with an engaging student life.
