Since my academic interests and strengths involve the mathematical and scientific topics, I had the voluntary impetus to pursue them at UC Irvine with all of my effort and determination. My favorite undergraduate courses were the Organic Chemistry 51A-C series, which taught me the skills of applying theoretical reactions into a lab setting as well as the significance of working through numerous application problems rather than simply memorizing content. The professor stressed that higher-performing students tend to study earlier, not necessarily more and I abide by that statement. Spring quarter of my third year, was when I decided to concentrate in neurobiology and highlight my patient interaction skills at UCI Medical Center. As a result,…show more content…

After that day, not only did I learn how much brakes and tires wear, but I acknowledged the importance of checking the essential components of one's vehicle and ensuring its safe driving condition. This is similar as when one checks a patient's physiology before surgery
