Sample Essay

Since I was a little girl, I've had my heart set on science. In the last couple of years, my growing passion for the intersection of biology and physics led me straight to biomedical engineering. I am drawn to Georgia Tech because its mission matches my own: my dream is to use biomedical innovation, research and development to better humankind. At Georgia Tech, I will learn from brilliant professors who are on the cutting edge of biomedical engineering research, such as Alexzander Asea, who is working to eradicate diseases through protein-based therapies. I will take advantage of Georgia Tech's limitless research opportunities like the "Undergraduate Research Scholar Program" early on in my college career, because I believe that all innovation starts in the lab.Ultimately, I believe that Georgia Tech will equip me to achieve my dreams and I hope to be a graduate who makes Georgia Tech proud.
