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.
Where others see the engineering, experimentation, and presentation of science as a chore, I only see excitement.
Even as a child I constantly sought it out, first on television with Bill Nye and The Mythbusters, then later in person in every museum exhibit I could find.
They, like me, are there because State University respects the value of diversity.
I know from personal experience that in order to achieve the trust, honesty, and success that State University values, new people are needed to create a respectful environment for these values.This emphasis on diversity can also be found in the variety of specialized departments found at State University.On top of its growing cultural and ethnic diversity, State University is becoming a master at creating a niche for every student.Just the thought of participating in a project at this level of scientific rigor made me forget that this was supposed to be my summer break and I spent the first day eagerly examining every piece of equipment.Even at first, when the whole research group sat there doing rote calculations and others felt like they were staring down the barrel of defeated purpose, I remained enthusiastic.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.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.Time and time again I reminded myself of that famous phrase "great effort leads to great rewards," and sure enough, soon my aspirations began to be met. During the experimentation phase of the project, I spent the majority of my waking hours in the lab – and I enjoyed every minute of it.This shift in attitude also coincided with a shift in location: from the computer desk to the laser lab. From debriefing with my coordinator in the morning to checking and rechecking results well into the afternoon, I was on cloud nine all day, every day.
