Rice University - Why Rice? - GATEWAY and WHO

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.

word count: 147
--- I'm mostly concerned about how bland the content is. How can I tailor it more to Rice specifically? Thank you in advance! :)

I think the content is ok, but you should write more about the unique features that the Rice has and others Universities don't have. You wrote about neuroscience and diversity, these two aspects you can also find in other universities. You should research in the Rice University website. For example, Rice is No.1 in best quality of student life and maybe you can write about that (Just an example, you don't have to write it if you consider a bad example). Some information about the University:

If Rice have any unique programs/opportunities then include those in your essay. You can also write more about the GATEWAY program and neuroscience minor, and how having those opportunities will positively affect not only you but the world.
