    Default Need editing help with 2 very short texts

    Hi!

    Could you please correct the 2 very short texts (I'm an international student applying to the US), they must be in perfect english.

    Thank you!!

    1/ I aspire to become a physicist, that is someone who possesses the tools necessary to understand and change the world we live in. Therefore, I plan to major in physics.

    2/ I went on to a 2-year college preparatory course for the French Grandes Ecoles (French engineering universities). I quit the course at the end of the second year to pursue a business project and that is what I have donc since. Please refer to the "my notes" section in part 2 of the application for more information.

    1- It's correct, but could the definition be a bi more specific- when you say that a phisicst changes the world, it sounds a bit broad to me. Change our understanding of the world?

    2- French Grandes Ecoles- I'd give the name
    I have donc- typo- done
