When I told my brother, a current student at Cornell pursuing his PhD in operations research, he was completely taken aback by this idea and told me not to let it discourage me. However, I still lead me to assume that perhaps I should look into other college majors. It was not until I had a mentor of mine tell me that I was “too intelligent” not to pursue the concepts in which I thrive, mathematics and applied mathematics. Thus, I am interested in pursuing my engineering studies at Cornell University because I believe that I can be a “beautiful little fool” in the world of engineering. I also know that Cornell University has one of the best engineering programs that is offered in the world, and I crave such understanding. I want to be in an environment in which I can both learn, and augment my life and society through my learning. My hope is to study biomedical engineering and then be a pediatric neurologist. I know that this is a challenging and intensive aspiration of mine. However, I do not want to be static or still. I do not want the societal concept of a “beautiful little fool” to be one that dictates women as incapable of fulfilling their individual purposes. I want to be an engineer, and I want to challenge my society to follow me in pursuing their aspirations, solving one problem at a
To prepare for my intended major, I have taken or will take required and recommended courses for both mathematics and computer science majors before I transfer. After classes, I often ask my professors questions that will be learned in upper-division courses, and I deeply appreciate it when my professors spend their leisure time imparting extracurricular knowledge to
Throughout my life, my extracurriculars have supplemented my academics. My club memberships range from Math Counts to National Junior Honor Society, where I hold the position of Vice President. Moreover, I played baseball for numerous seasons and have reached the highest level in my school’s band program. Furthermore, I have assisted my church live stream services for the past
I am a math major student. Since I am doing pretty well on math and joined the practice session for the Putnam competition when I was in my freshman year, I enrolled in Math Advanced Track program. In the advanced track program, I have access to all math honors courses and I can require to override math courses without meeting requirements. At the end of the first semester, I got a chance to work for a professor in the math department. This is my first formal research on mathematics, which makes me very exciting. Since I am good at Matlab, I am doing computer programming and started to learn SDP. SDP is the core algorithm in the research. In addition, I take 2 math honors courses per semester, plus taking Putnum session and have 2 clubs. I am the president of the MSU Aikido club and member of the MSU MMA club. And my GPA is 3.9 cumulatively.
Before my undergraduate freshman year, I have been searching for a field that I would be passionate about. In the summer, I would participate in an event that can enhance my skills. Notably, the program called Joaquin-Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program (JBMSHP) increased my love for math and science. The students spend eight hours per day learning a math course. Using the mathematical contents, my teammate and I built up a research topic to work for the eight week of the program. Every day, many students stayed up until 2PM to complete over 75 math problems. If the homework was lower than an 80%, we would go to a night tutoring. The program was intense and nerve-wrecking. In the beginning, I was doubting myself if I could ever continue it until
Therefore, most would infer that I pursue something related to my current field of occupation, right? This assumption is incorrect since I am determined to learn new topics, which led me to discover the unexpected: computer science. Versatility is a quality that few fields can offer, it was one of the reasons computer science attracted my interest. An individual may explore areas anywhere from game design, teaching, to cybersecurity. As I am a definite novice, my plans are to discover which branch suits my talents best and roll with it. Deciding to pursue this degree, was surprising due to my lack of necessity for new-fangled gadgets during my adolescence through my early college
This excerpt from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts’ (LSA) mission statement, “…provides students with adaptive skills to solve problems,” supports my objective of hopefully using mathematics as a nexus to solve some of the country’s inexcusable societal shortcomings. And as an aspiring pure mathematics major, this excerpt from the Department of Mathematics’ mission statement, “…to further the field of mathematics and bring its power to bear in the solution of problems for the good of mankind,” completely aligns with my passionate commitment to my objective. Feeling supported and having the same operational intents of the College and Department to which I hope to transfer and study lays the foundation for my attraction to LSA.
I plan to attend the University of Florida, and major in Biomedical Engineering. In eighth grade, I decided that in order to get a head start I would do dual enrollment in high school. I took my first two official college courses my sophomore year of high school. Through Florida Southwestern State College, I was able to enroll in French I and II, along with Psychology and Human Growth and Development. My junior year, I decided to be a full-time dual-enrolled student at Florida Gulf Coast University. I plan to earn my AA in May of 2018. I hope that by earning my AA in high school, I will be able to reduce both cost and time in achieving my degree. If possible, I plan to enroll in the summer term at the University of Florida as one of the
As a member of the honor roll during the entirety of my high school career, I have strived to achieve the best possible scores every marking period. Every day, I come to school with a positive attitude, and am always poised to learn something new. Over the last four years, I have taken all of the technology courses my school has to offer. I have a heavy “Engineering by Design” background, and also have become skilled with CAD software, programming, and scripting. As a result of my passion for engineering, I have won the Xerox Award for Innovation and Information Technology. Additionally, I am also very interested in Mathematics and Science, with AP Calculus and Physics being examples of courses I have taken to reflect
Georgia Tech is one of the most exalted schools in southern Georgia; every gifted student has considered applying at one point or another. The extreme difficulty and strenuous workload of some of the courses, in particular the formidable mathematical courses, puts off many from further consideration or even attempting the grind. However, I consider myself a risk-taker. I don’t want to waste my time taking an effortless, easy journey through college. Georgia Tech, although difficult, will be completely worth the while. This school will encourage me to achieve great things, and these things will take so much time and effort that my competition will never even have dreamed of accomplishing these goals. Victory at Georgia Tech would mean so much
My current academics and extracurriculars that help me with my achievement are my animal science class, biology and my participation on the Vet Tech team in FFA. My Animal Science class provides information about veterinary experiences and what is expected to become eligible to work with animals and Vet Tech allows me to learn about
I will commit and make time available for NCSSM’s academic program by continuing the techniques I am currently expressing. I believe that my current course-load has helped me to balance my extracurricular activities and my responsibilities as a student and as a leader. With being a sophomore in advanced placement classes it can be hard to juggle it all, but I find that my organization skills and planning in advance, that I can say atop of my workload. Even with my workload I am involved with many extracurriculars, and add more when the opportunity presents itself, and others can benefit from it. For example with my already existing activities, someone had thought of me, and asked me to play in the church youth orchestra. If I did not join,
Encryption in book Blown to Bits by Hal Abelson, Ken Ledeen, and Harry Lewis is carefully analyzed by these three Computer Science majors is from the beginning of ciphering till exploitation occurred between the NSA and the Congressmen/Presidents of 1990’s. The industry and technological advancements for encryption began with the Egyptians who ciphered their language in Hieroglyphics around 2000 years ago. This creation led to a problematic industry for the Information Age because of the abuse of privacy. Though the fraudulent consequences of privacy are not protected by any amendment limitless resistance to being exposed for personal information has been growing ever since the beginning of security standards. What happened in September 11th, 2001 was not merely an inevitable catastrophe because the FBI warned the US Government and president years before 911 occurred. Encryption being a safety requirement in our era is the encoding of data transferring through communicative means. Anyone can have access to the data however there is a password when trying to steal or intercept someone 's information. The best way to encode your translation of personal information between two or more people is by verbal talking through whispers/soft speaking. Regulating encryption has always been a request from the NSA and the FBI because of exchanging violent plans or initiatives to seek perilous outcomes. The government feeds of privacy, not protected by the Founding Fathers or the
My last year of middle school had a strong impact on my interest in computer science. We had to interview people for our career fair project, and I choose to interview a computer programmer. I was interested in his work which had influenced my decision to pursue computer science in College. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a school where they offered classes for people interested in computers. The school I attend is known to be the best high school in the district academic wise, and I was able to take advantage of the opportunities given to me as a student by taking many courses that involved the usage of computers. The more that I learned, the more determined I was to continue learning. At Springfield High School, I eagerly seized the chance to take classes in as many different areas as possible. While I
