University of San Diego, Pediatrician

The reason I choose to go the University of San Diego is because I want to have a good college education and be really far away from here. I feel like this could be a perfect opportunity to get away from here and explore something new.


According to the website of the University of San Diego they state that, "The original chapter of the University of San Diego was written on a brisk early winter afternoon in December of 1949, when local dignitaries joined Bishop Charles Francis Buddy and Mother Rosalie Clifton Hill for a groundbreaking ceremony atop a wind-swept mesa overlooking the burgeoning San Diego cityscape."

First-year Applicants

Students who are still enrolled in high school or who have graduated from high school and have never enrolled in college courses should apply for first-year admission. In addition to a completed application submitted via the Common Application, the following credentials must be submitted for your application to be reviewed:

  • Application fee of $55
  • Official high school transcript from all high schools attended
  • Official SAT Reasoning Test scores submitted directly from College Board or Official ACT with Writing scores submitted directly from American College Test (ACT)
  • One academic letter of recommendation
  • Essay (See Common Application for topics and details

First-Year Housing

First-year housing is the home of our Living Learning Community program. These areas offer easy access to classes and your professors, as well as close proximity to your classmates for study group sessions, and convenient access to on-campus events such as lectures, concerts, athletic events and the wide range of recreational activities on campus. Each first-year area is unique, with their own live-in professional community directors, resident ministers and undergraduate resident assistants (RA's), who are committed to helping you maximize your on-campus living experience.

The reason i have selected this path is because i want to help people out. Being able to help and make a difference in the world is something I've always dreamed of. Maybe i wont change the world but I'll help someone and that is enough for me. Saving someones life would be a good example of that. The ability to travel to different parts of the world and help those in need is another one of those reasons.

I also found out that nursing keeps you in shape, which is good because it keeps you on your feet and it keeps you from eating all the time. Nurses also play an important job in the lives of others. They may not be doctors but they do make sure you're okay and doing fine. They keep you on check and make sure to tell the doctor if anything is wrong. They may not mean anything to you but to them you mean a lot.  

Pediatricians entry wage is about $60.58 an hour. Median Wage is about $74.49 an hour. And experienced wage is about $90+ an hour. Pediatrician are doctors that specialize in taking care of little kids from birth to adolescence. Like a doctors job it is up to the pediatrician to diagnose any illnesses. To become a pediatrician you must attend medical school and earn a Doctor of Medicine degree (MD). You must complete a 4-year bachelors degree.
