From the Paper:

"As the oldest and largest public university in Middle Tennessee, I am positive that Middle Tennessee University can give me the education I need to make a lasting impression on the future. Having maintained a 3.6 GPA during my high school career, I have proven that I have the ability to succeed in a variety of fields. In addition, my high school education has introduced me to the diverse areas of study available at Middle Tennessee University, from science to education to business and communications. Although I have not yet decided an area in which to major, I know that I want to make an impact on my own life, the lives of others, and my world. I believe that Middle Tennessee University can help me accomplish this goal mainly because it has a history of training young people to be well equipped in the ''real world,'' equipped not only to succeed financially, providing for themselves and their families, but also succeeding in society, helping to make the world a better place, while finding fulfillment with themselves."
