Admissions Essay for Biology Course
For the past two terms I have studied at the Central New Hampshire University and did everything I could to both excel in my studies and take part in a number of extracurricular activities dealing with my interests in biology. Without having any low opinions about the higher educational institution attended by me, I, nevertheless, understood that my growing interest in biology cannot be satisfied there and, if I am going to pursue any career connected with this field of science in future, I have to learn it elsewhere.
I made it my goal to find an institution that would meet all the requirements of my academic aspirations. I have long ago started to receive very high evaluations of both academic process and research facilities in the University of North Carolina. In particular, I am interested in the university’s school of Paleobotany, which seems to be just what I need to further pursue my aspirations in studying this particular field of biology.
I hope that the attention that the University pays to undergraduate research programs will assist in broadening and deepening of my understanding of biology and the sciences dependent on it. I have always been fascinated by all the possibilities that research of fossilized plants and other remains of the past epochs can offer us, and to do it personally, under the direction of talented and highly experienced scientists will surely help me to further improve my research skills and knowledge of this subject.
I am particularly interested in James Oldfield’s research on the Triassic ferns, but I have also heard about numerous other projects that are carried out there and I would be very eager to at least observe them. I have already spent some time working in Moondale Laboratory in Kansas, which made me even more eager to devote my life to biology. In future I plan to get the Bachelor’s degree and, hopefully, go on to receiving a PhD in this area.
In the course of years, my interest in biology grew steadily, and it is already quite a long time since I decided to pursue a career in this field. I participated in a number of activities connected with it, such as Paleontology Club. I think that my enthusiasm, knowledge of the subject and experience of work in this field will help me become a valuable asset for the University.
