Why, in particular, do you wish to attend Bates?
Answer in 2 to 3 paragraphs
I want to make a difference. I don't have to change the world, but I want to make something of myself in college. I want to do internships, conduct a research project with a professor, to be a committed sports fan, and to help out in the community. I believe that Bates will give me the chance to pursue all these goals while I can still maintain my sanity. The 4-4-1 calendar will give me time to participate in many activities that may not be possible at other schools. In the final 5 week course, I could take advantage of this time and finally commit to a job. And with all these multitude of opportunities I hope to begin a new life at Bates.
I love to eat food whenever I want. I like how I would not be limited to the amount of food that I can eat per week if I were to attend Bates. When I go to college, this place is going to be my new home for the next four years of my life. I want to make this new location feel as close to home as possible. At home my mom does not tell me that I can only eat 20 meals for the week, so I should not be told the maximum meals I can get per week at my new home. When I was told of the unlimited meals for the meal plan I was ecstatic because I knew that my experience at this school would be even better for me. This school seems to be made for me. Bates seems to know that I love food, and is welcoming me with open arms to come to its school.
so when i showed it to my mom she thought that i maybe talked about food too much. is that true? and would the school think that I'm obese for some reason, because I'm totally not. any advise please?
