just a rough draft of my penn state personal statement
. Let me know what needs to be changed or added. would like to get this submitted this week. Thanks
The true and harsh reality is most students want immediate success without the necessary effort. With that said, the beginning of my senior year so far has been a juggling act to say the least. Between enjoying my personal interests, focusing on my strenuous high school classes, being enrolled in an emerging engineering program, as well as spending hours typing college essays, it has been a difficult balance for sure. I think much differently than most students however, in the fact that I am willing to work for my desired results. I enjoy the feeling of reaching my goals as well as overcoming critical obstacles along the way.
In order for me to be successful at Penn State University, I understand the importance of a dedicated and diligent work ethic. Majoring in the field of chemical engineering I am prepared for an arduous amount of work. I accept and am looking forward to the challenge that awaits me. I believe I am prepared for the next step in my life. That being, the transition from high school into college. I am anxious to begin this new stage, which marks an increase in responsibility. I am prepared to be focused, determined, and motivated. With those three characteristics I believe I will be able to persevere until I reach my goals. These same characteristics have successfully led me through high school. Even throughout my high school career I have been sure to give everything I attempt my full effort. This is the reason my high school record accurately describes my ability and potential in college. Even though I enjoy my hobbies outside of school, I always have my educational responsibilities as my first priority. I understand the temptation other students may have, but I refuse to let myself become distracted from what I know will really matter one day. I know my dedication will pay off in the future. The same dedication that I have withheld for the previous four years. More importantly, the dedication that I know will successfully carry me through the next four years of post- secondary education.
