In fact skyraylor, I am passionate about many things, mainly science as I am hoping to study biology/chemistry or go pre-med in college. I have done many things in the Science field and to expose my knowledge and experience in the medical field. Firstly, my freshman summer, I volunteered 120 hours as a Science Teacher for Underpriveleged Inner City children, helping to organize and teach a general science curriculum.
Furthermore, I have been a member of my school's science olympiad team since my freshman year, winning many regional and state awards including 2nd places in both protein modeling and oceanography.
Even more, I've volunteered since my freshman at my local hospital, volunteering over 200 on a cancer ward. I am also going to Singapore this summer as an intern at the national hospital to do some research and job shadowing in a child cancer ward since cancer is what I am interested in studying.
As for my essay, I am planning to write about the time I saw someone pass away in front of me at the hospital. It was an odd experience and peculiar in many ways; you would have to read my essay.
um, its an interesting idea i guess, but its not original, check the uva website about essays because one of the essays they talk about, refrences death and it seems similar to your idea. it has the potential to turn out to be really cliche, so just be aware of that.

Obviously they have a gpa of 3.7 because they go to a top boarding school. I am attending hochkiss right now and I have a 3.7 and I'm one of the top in my class. And every year people from hochkiss get into amazing colleges. This isn't like public school, you actually have to earn the grades
