This experience and resulting reward was one of the most important determining factors for me receiving scholarships, interviews, and landing internships and ultimately a career. In every interview I have been involved with since this experience, the interviewer never fails to ask several questions related to the award. It has clearly been a differentiating factor that has helped me stand out from my peers.

About the Project: 

Ethan developed a survey about gaming behavior similar to those used to assess whether drug users are addicted, and found that 69 % of boys and 44 % of girls showed borderline-to-severe signs of video game addiction.
