Getting a degree in the physical sciences will enable me to pursue my educational goal of obtaining my Bachelor of Science and furthering my education by attending dental school. This will allow me to positively impact the economy for the state of Michigan in a number of ways. First, I will be a highly skilled worker that will be able to contribute to the workforce thus helping to decrease the unemployment rate for the state. Next, my degree will help by adding to the number of skilled middle class workers for the state. I will now be able to contribute to the state’s economy as a tax paying citizen. Ultimately as I finish my educational endeavor of becoming an orthodontist I will be able to continue to positively impact the economy for the state of Michigan by employing others in my dental practice.
