Hello all, I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. At the moment, I'm writing the essay for my college application (I know, I know, but please read on). I'm transferring from a community college, and I decided to transfer as a physics major. In a nutshell, I'm trying to come up with examples of everyday experiences everyone has that involve physics. Here are some examples I've written so far - "I've driven a car." "I've been in a car accident." "I've ridden a roller coaster." "I've flown in an airplane." "I've been punched in the face." This is the prompt - Q. What is your intended major? Discuss how your interest in the subject developed and describe any experience you have had in the field — such as volunteer work, internships and employment, participation in student organizations and activities — and what you have gained from your involvement. Basically, I decided to become a physics major after taking a class last semester, so I have no experience in the field... except for examples like I've given. YOUR task, if you would like to help, is to come up with more examples similar to mine; the cleverer the better. Unfortunately, I can't cite you when I turn in my paper, so if you post it, it's up for grabs. Thanks!
