My 4.0 GPA reflects both my mastery of Chemistry and my strong enthusiasm for science. In addition to achieveing a perfect grade point average, I also conducted independent reserch during my junior and senior years, culminating in two publications in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. During my senior year, I presented my research at the annual meeting of the ACS in Phoenix, winning first prize in the undergraduate paper competition.

My chief advantages are my natural affinity for the field and my willingness to take summer and evening classes. I completed a full courseload throughout each traditional academic year, and graduated a semester early, due to my accelerated coursework.
