PostPosted: Tue Jan 08, 2008 8:02 pm    Post subject: Radiography Application Essay Reply with quote

Hello,

I am applying to the Radiography program next month and I have to write an essay on why I am applying for the Radiography program. Any ideas about which format should I use ??? I have got alot to say but I am not sure if I can squeeze everything into a one page essay.
What do you think they are looking for about me in the essay?
I appreciate any help, since English is not my first language I am a bit concerned on how to write this essay. So far I have a GPA 4.0 and I don't want to mess up my chances with the essay.

Thanks

Evoes

Don't whack yourself out - that's rule #1.

Be honest - that's rule #2.

Don't be overly wordy - that's rule #3. If you can say it in a sentence, rather than a paragraph, do so. Leave out the adjectives, you don't need them. Don't use extra punctuation (??? or !!!), that takes up space.

Write in clear sentences. Use single-spaced (or double-spaced, if they require) paragraphs. The purpose of this essay is to communicate. Plan your paragraphs. What is it that you want them to understand?

You'll do fine. Take a deep breath and get it on paper.

Good luck.

i used to be very anal retentive in english class, here's a template for you:

Paragraph 1 - introduction
introduce yourself
breif reasoning as to why you chose radiology
include topics (reasons why you want to be in the radiology field)
example being 1 - medical, 2 - work with patients, 3 - etc.
Paragraph 2 - topic 1

Paragraph 3 - topic 2

Paragraph 4 - topic 3 (etc.)

Final Paragraph - Conclusion
restate why you want to be in radiology, what you would like to do, what you would like to learn

if you guys think this is too much, sorry...

it's just my obsesive compulsive disorder acting up :lol:
