Hello! My name is Monica Magdaleno. I aspire to attend my dream school for the next four years in order to fulfill my dream of becoming a pediatrician. Many hours of research have led me to decide which three colleges I have narrowed down as my top schools. At the top of the list is UC Irvine. UC Irvine is the highest on the list (being my number one) because their medical program is one of the most prestigious and graduating from there would increase my chances of attaining a job over a graduate from other schools. My second choice would be California State University, Dominguez Hills and my third would be the University of Southern California. Those are second and third because although both are good schools with excellent medical programs, they are not as well equipped to increase my chances of finding a decent job. The reason I want to become a pediatrician is because I am profoundly passionate about caring for others, especially children. All my life I have loved caring for my younger sibling as well as caring for other children. Personally, I have always loved the doctors visits; every doctor I have encountered has only led me to dream about one day doing what they do.
