Some help on writing a more concise text:
The Arizona State University is my first choice due to the similarity with my study profile in my University in Brazil. Another reason is that this University has a wide range of research opportunities in my field of interest, which would help to improve my knowledge and develop my skills about biotechnology in modern laboratories and take quality lectures and tutorials.
My second choice is the University of Alabama. Its advanced big infrastructure and capacity to promote the development of new technologies are great differentials, along with the possibility of offering activities aimed at academic areas that are not common in my country, would aid my career development.
The excellence of academic programs and national recognition of this University are some of the reasons for my choice.
The Washington State University is my third option. My field of interest is biotechnology applied to the food industry, so, its studies about food and agriculture are very interesting. Studying in this university would be an excellent preparation for my graduation. Moreover, the familiar climate of its “residential campus” offers a great opportunity for an exchange student to adapt successfully.
