College Essay Help - EmorySubmitted by james24ti on Tue, 01/15/2013 - 02:10
Hi! I am writing my college supplemental essay to the Emory University in Atlanta, and I figured there are some pretty savvy people here on the dailypaul who can help me revise/proofread. There is only a 250 word max. Any Help is appreciated!!
I want to go to Emory because it is different. As a Chicago native who has lived in the corn fields of Indiana to currently frozen and barren South Dakota, I have experienced some pretty crazy places and people. Through my journeys I have developed an irresistible desire to explore myself and the world, and Emory is a perfect environment to do just this. This prestigious southern university is my new frontier, unlike anything I have done before. I want a truly remarkable experience in college; I want to go to Emory, where the buildings are made of marble and Jimmy Carter speaks every year.
Among the less grandiose reasons I am drawn to Emory is the anthropology program. I am fascinated by the magnitude of diverse courses, such as Anthropology of the Asians and Evolutionary Medicine, as well as the individualization of study offered in the major. Emory’s anthropology program is particularly fitting because of the multitude of pathways that are available to its students. Emory anthropology majors have continued their academic journeys in just about every field in existence, including intelligence and medicine, both of which I am strongly considering.
In addition to having an extensive program for my intended major, Emory is a very community driven environment where students are friendly and collaborative. Coming from a small military boarding school where community service and student leadership are central to learning, it is comforting knowing that such an environment exists in higher education.
