About a week ago, I talked to my mom’s friend about my future. I told her that I’ve always wanted to be a doctor because science fascinated me and I have a niche for helping people. Once I said that, the first thing she asked for was my grade point average and SAT score. This made me a bit sad. I realized that the admissions board will only see the things that my mom’s friends wanted to see. All they will see are a list of numbers on a piece of paper. They will never know about my passion or drive towards becoming a doctor. All they will see are numbers on a piece of paper. My personality, achievements, and unique qualities that make me who I am, will be summed up by 2 numbers on a piece of paper.
