I have four essays to write for my internship each of a maximum of 350-400 words. I just wrote my first essay and I feel relatively content with it. Though I can't help but doubt my work.. I wrote it rather unconventionally you can say. Instead of being very formal, I used more of a conversational (yet professional) method at the same time. Reason is due to not having a stellar application. Would that work? Here is a little information about me. 3.89 gpa, only up to Calculus I and Engineering Physics I (math and physics wise), at a community college, didn't care in high school so had around 3.0gpa.. and hmm that is about it. I'm applying to Brookhaven National Laboratory and Fermilab National Laboratory. If anyone would like, I can put up the essay too. Though I'm worried if people would copy my work??
