Cell Biology Waitlist Essay

Hi, I was wondering if I could get some advice on my waitlist essay and if there is anything that you guys might think that I should change. Thank you!

Prompt: Please briefly tell us why you feel UC Davis is the right place for you to continue your education. Please limit your response to 200 words.


Without any hesitation, attending UC Davis is my top choice to pursue my undergraduate career as a Cell Biology major. Since I was a junior in high school, it has been my goal to attend UC Davis. In my last three years at Santa Monica College, not a day has gone by that I did not picture myself as an Aggie.

I have a strong passion to pursue medical research as an undergraduate. With state-of-the-art research facilities offered at UC Davis, I would have the opportunity to immerse myself into high level hands-on research that is not offered elsewhere. Not only would this opportunity allow me to gain valuable research experience, I would also be able to form life long relationships and work alongside my colleagues with similar ambitions.

During my time at SMC, I have not heard of any other university which has created such a supportive and friendly environment as UC Davis. There is no doubt in my mind that this is what truly sets UC Davis apart from any other school, and it is why I feel I would fit in to the community. If selected off of the waitlist, I will definitely enroll into UC Davis.

    I was thinking if maybe it would be helpful if I added something about volunteering in the UCD School of Medicine too?
