Review committees know what generic responses look like so specificity sells.
Review committees know what generic responses look like so specificity sells.For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of science.
Thus vindicated, my desire to further formalize my love of science brings me to State University.
Thanks to this experience, I know now better than ever that State University is my future, because through it I seek another, permanent, opportunity to follow my passion for science and engineering.
I, like State University, constantly work to explore the limits of nature by exceeding expectations.
Long an amateur scientist, it was this drive that brought me to the University of Texas for its Student Science Training Program in 2013.
Science in all its forms fascinated me, but science projects in particular were a category all to themselves.
To me, science projects were a special joy that only grew with time.In fact, it was this continued fascination for hands-on science that brought me years later to the sauna that is the University of Alabama in mid-June.Participating in the Student Science Training Program and working in their lab made me feel like a kid in a candy store.Likewise, I feel that my time at State University would make my potential similarly limitless.This is a picture-perfect response to a university-specific essay prompt.Up to that point science had been my private past time, one I had yet to explore on anyone else’s terms. Participating for the first time in a full-length research experiment at that level, I felt more alive, more engaged, than I ever had before.Learning the complex dynamics between electromagnetic induction and optics in an attempt to solve one of the holy grails of physics, gravitational-waves, I could not have been more pleased.In addition to just science, I am drawn to State University for other reasons.I strive to work with the diverse group of people that State University wholeheartedly accommodates – and who also share my mindset.At the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at State University, I will be able to do just that.In a department where education and research are intermixed, I can continue to follow the path that towards scientific excellence.
