Why are you interested in attending Georgia Tech, and what do you hope to contribute to our community? (150 WORDS MAX)


Because my interests are spread across multiple disciplines, I found it difficult to find a major and university which catered to my intellectual pursuits. For example, although I find the intricacies associated with biology unparalleled, business and debate excite me, since I often learn about other perspectives and examine new ways of thinking. I also love learning French, and I cannot imagine a curriculum without French classes. As a result, I am interested in attending Georgia Tech because it gives me the best opportunity to pursue my interests. Through the Industrial Engineering major, I can master the sciences and learn essential business concepts and strategies. With the international plan and the Georgia Tech campus in Lorraine, I can immerse myself in French culture while still taking classes for my major at Georgia Tech. I hope to contribute a new intellectual perspective to the Georgia Tech community; one that is able to make connections across multiple disciplines and appreciate the value of other opinions.


I'm actually 13 words over

I personally would never start an essay with the word because. While I realize you are only allowed 150 words I would still try to add a little or take out a little from that sentence for example: My interests are spread across multiple disciplines and therefore I found it difficult to find a major and university which catered to my intellectual pursuits.

Besides that I think that your essay shows that you know a lot about the campus which is always a good thing!
