I am not a genius I did not receive a perfect score on my SAT Nor do I know the reason cows and elephants are the only animals that cant jump However what I do know is that out of the thousands of students applying to Rutgers I am unique I have dedicated 600 hours of the past four years of my life to community service visiting patients in nursing homes and hospitals whenever I could find the time Though the visits were intended to benefit the sick and elderly in retrospect I realize these visits were for me just as much as they were for them These experiences forced me to learn things I otherwise would never have understood and to appreciate the things in my life that had become mundane These visits saw me through difficult periods in my life and helped me to emerge stronger and more confident Each day was a new experience a different page in their life story I had to come to terms with the fact that it was possible to spend an entire evening laughing and crying with one patient and find that same room empty the very next day As I prepared to leave after each visit I made a conscious effort to bring a part of them with me The laughter the stories and the tears will always be a part of me and will comfort me as I enter a new stage in my own life I am ready for the responsibility and the hard work I am ready for Rutgers
