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.
Long-mesmerized by hobbies like my work with the FIRST Robotics team, I believe State University would be the best choice to continue to nurture my love for electrical and computer engineering.
I have only scratched the surface in this ever evolving field but know that the technological potential is limitless.
I even loved the electric feeling of anxiety as I waited for the results.
Most of all, though, I loved the pursuit of science itself. 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.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.What makes it particularly effective is not just its cohesive structure and elegant style but also the level of details the author uses in the response.By directly identifying the specific aspects of the university that are attractive to the writer, the writer is able to clearly and effectively show not only his commitment to his studies but – perhaps more importantly – the level of thought he put into his decision to apply.Review committees know what generic responses look like so specificity sells.For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of science.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.
