In Art class one afternoon, while my classmates distract themselves from the still life in front of us to discuss their favorite part of high school, I try to focus on tearing newspaper for my still life collage, but I cannot ignore them any longer. Someone rambles on about how much she loved freshman year, and someone else claims that sophomore year was the best. Facetiously, I mutter, "Well, junior year was definitely my favorite."

The combination of the Brown Engineering Department and the Brown Curriculum has drawn me to apply to Brown. Because Brown does not have a core curriculum, I know that I will be taking classes and sharing an educational experience with people who want to be in those classes and are eager to learn. With Engineering as a department instead of a school, I have the flexibility to take an art or dance class that is outside of the Engineering curriculum....

Engineering interests me as a major because it integrates my academic interests with my intellectual curiosities. Instead of being intimidated as the only girl in my Honors and Advanced Placement Physics classes, I have derived satisfaction from succeeding in math and science as a woman. From what I have heard, not only does Brown's theory based on engineering curriculum prepare me for graduate school, but also the ABET accredited engineering degree would allow me to enter the industry.
