"Why Lafayette" essay



Students identify Lafayette as an excellent fit for countless reasons. In your response, be deliberate and specific about your motivation for applying to Lafayette(Why Lafayette? (20-200 words) (This is is the prompt). Be as critical as you can. Thank YOU!!!

One of my friends, Monika Niraula, studied liberal arts in the Lafayette from 2013 to 2017. So, I asked her which college I should apply for undergraduate physics. She replied," Why don't you apply to Lafayette college? It is very good for physics." Hence, I decided to do a little bit of research on Lafayette and decided to apply to it.

After my research I found that Lafayette physics curriculum provides several physics major and minor option to choose from. It is fascinating that I could choose specific courses that I find the most appealing. Similarly, student have access to advance physics laboratories, and astronomy observation. Being able to combine my undergraduate studies with excellent scientific research and observation will be a fantastic opportunity.

Besides, from Monika Niraula I got to know that Lafayette college is like a community where students feel a sense of belonging and regard the college as their second home. I believe this aspect of human need, a sense of belonging, is very important as it improves our motivation, mental health, and happiness. I can be assured that Lafayette college will bring best out of me and help me grow in both academic and personal life.

Welcome here! I hope that this feedback somehow gives you insight on writing. Don't hesitate to always approach us if you have additional questions regarding it.

Firstly, while the introductory paragraph was quite an elegant approach to writing this entire thing, I do recommend that you push forward with a more intensified approach to writing. Professional, I mean. I recommend trying to focus on more specific details that are actually necessary, rather than having chunks of data to add flair.

Furthermore, be cautious of your punctuation (or lack thereof). It can be off-putting if you are not using academic standards in your writing techniques. It will also be helpful if you can expound on the details with much fluency.

Best of luck.
