It is with great pleasure that I finally send this application letter to the school of my dreams, Purdue University, in the hopes that I will be among the few selected to undergo the university’s industrial engineering program. As one of the best engineering universities that is responsible for pioneer studies in the field of engineering, I believe Purdue University provides the best education and practical training. As an immigrant from India, it has always been my dream that I will end up receiving a prestigious degree in one of the best universities in America. If I am accepted into the university as a transfer student, I promise to be a model student who aspires for the maximum, which is a bachelor’s degree in engineering and an MBA as well.
My previous academic qualifications give me the basic knowledge required to join the university’s engineering program since I ensured that all the units I did were aligned with the course curriculum of Purdue University. For instance, I attained my High school honors from Fern Creek High School after previously spending the first few years of school in Gulf Shores High. I attained good grades that placed among the selected to join the local college community, Jefferson Technical College. My knack for engineering showed with my excellent performances in science subjects and Mathematics. I excelled in Physics and Chemistry. My performance in other general education subjects such as history, sociology, and languages was also above average. The most important criteria for subject selection was that it aligned with Purdue’s plan of study and successfully passed in the selected subjects to ensure that this application will be accepted.
As a transfer student, I have had numerous drawbacks to achieving this level of education that often roots from financial problems. I had to join the community college before aspiring to join a university since they offer relatively cheaper tuition fees and offer significant attention to their students. The classes are smaller which allows the lecturers to give special attention to each student. The learning experience was an eye-opening and provides the best foundation for extending my studies within Purdue University. Despite this positive environment, I experienced difficulties with one of the professors which resulted in my poor score in English 102. The said professor was often disorganized and misplaced my final examination paper, thus the low score.
I also admire Purdue University’s level of importance attached to extra-curricular activities which match my interest in various sports and social activities. As a former team captain of Crickets and Basketball teams, I believe that the opportunity to play for the university’s team would be a great learning step to attaining leadership skills. I was also a member of Computer’s Club which equipped members with requisite IT skills necessary in the contemporary engineering industry. To supplement my pocket money for school, I had the opportunity to gain work experience in various institutions such as McDonald’s, Ingram Micro (T-Mobile Tech Company), and Oxmoor Toyota. This drive to find innovative approaches to sustaining my school life is a testimony that I am a hardworking and diligent student. I am looking forward for positive correspondence from the University.
