Here’s an excerpt:
“During my first few semesters at Duke, I did not have a checklist or a clear path outlined. Granted, all Duke majors have checklists for you detailing major requirements and electives, but it also constantly changes in course availability and the introduction of new courses. Therefore, it was difficult to navigate with such uncertainty, but I was confident in my love for studying the ocean and fish—an extremely broad area of inquiry with many different avenues for exploration. In addition, I was intrigued by conversations surrounding complex and reflective questions that related to differences in cultural backgrounds. My interests were broad but flexible.”
