Wow! I’ve finally reached the last semester of my college career. When they tell you, “the four years goes by in the blink of a eye,” listen, because it’s definitely true. I remember my freshman year as if it was just yesterday. Now, I’m preparing to apply for dental school and to obtain my dental assistant license.
I know 2017 will be my year! I’ll graduate from Texas A&M and begin a new chapter of my life practicing dental assistant medicine.
As the semester gets going, I begin to realize how close I am to the finish line. I’m taking my final major science course, Physiology, which I know will be the most difficult course yet. However, I’m determined to finish strong.
Over the past couple of semesters, I’ve improved my study strategies which resulted in a significant increase in my GPA. Although I still did well in my freshman and sophomore courses, those grades weren’t going to make me a competitive dental school applicant. I’ve worked hard to show the admission board that I deserve a spot in that class.
I want to finish this last semester showing them that my determination surpasses any mediocracy in my first two years of college. I hope that my application will be enough to engage the admissions board and encourage them to be interested in meeting me.
I’m excited for the what the future holds. I embrace it wholeheartedly!
