Admissions Essay - The Art of Medicine - Admissions Essay - The Art of Medicine Once upon a time, it seems, physicians were wise and good, and medicine was an art.

American medicine in the late 20th century seems considerably less romantic.

Admissions Essay - Providing Medical Assistance to the Homeless - Admissions Essay - Providing Medical Assistance to the Homeless For me, the journey from child to medical school applicant has not been typical. It began on the damp side of a Washington bridge, where I lived when I was fourteen years old. What sparked my interest in medicine was the role I came to play among the homeless with whom I lived. It soon became apparent that I had certain knowledge that my peers lacked: Knowledge of the nature of infection and basic principles of hygiene. When Pat, a middle-aged transient with matted hair and a solemn disposition, arrived at the bridge one day, he could barely walk without assistance....   [tags: Medicine College Admissions Essays] 800 words

College Admissions Essay - A Willingness to Overcome Differences - College Admissions Essay - A Willingness to Overcome Differences I have a fledgling friendship with Amalia, a Spanish speaking woman. Amalia is not fluent with english, and my Spanish is wobbly and crude. So we get together whenever possible to practice each other's native tongue, half an hour of Spanish, half an hour of English. When we first started meeting, I saw a forbidding wall of words that I thought had to come down if a bond of friendship was to grow. The words that bring me such exhilaration and such rousing exchanges of ideas in English turned ornery and cantankerous in Spanish....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 877 words

My father was returning from driving his dirty, green John Deere tractor in one of our fields. Although he begins his day at 5:00 a.m. every morning, he usually returns at around 7:00 p.m. I never really questioned his schedule when I was a child, but as I entered high school I wondered how my dad could work so hard every day of the week and still enjoy what he does. He works long hours, becomes filthy from dirt, oil, and mud, and worst of all, can watch all his hard work go to waste if one day of bad weather wipes out our crop....   [tags: Medicine College Admissions Essays] 757 words

Yet striking changes have occurred in American universities that shifts emphasis on merit towards offering higher education to a specific, privileged race, while limiting the quotas of others, namely Asian-Americans. Just as their predecessors of the 1920s always denied the existence of “Jewish quotas,” top officials at Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the other Ivy League schools today strongly deny the existence of “Asian quotas.” (Unz) , however, statistical evidence suggests other...   [tags: education, discrimination, legacy, student] 1090 words

College Admissions Essay: I Will be a Writer! - I Will be a Writer. Two books helped me define myself as a writer, or rather, helped me decide what kind of writer I would be. The first was the Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky. I read it when I was a freshman in high school. By then, I had already begun to wrestle with questions of good and evil which I encountered in the novel and would later work with again and again in my poems. Perhaps because I had been raised Catholic, it made the novel more resonant for me, for I firmly believed in the existence of evil, as firmly as I believed in the existence of goodness and its power to transform, although at the end of the book, I had begun to realize that goodness alone is not always enough an...   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 350 words
