Brief Profile:
I applied as early as I could in order to *hopefully* negate some of my weaknesses.

1. I'm graduating in 3 years from Texas A&M with a BS in Biology and a Minor in History . WHOOP!

2. Have about 40 hours of volunteering in a hospital. Listed this as one of my 3 meaningful activities.

3. Have about 25 hours of shadowing a neurosurgeon. Listed this as one of my 3 meaningful activities.

4. Tons of research experience (about 100 hours in one lab and about 200 in another). I got paid employment in the
second lab and have a lot of responsibilities. No publications, however. Listed this as one of my 3 meaningful activities.

5. Starting a non-clinical community service organization on campus aimed to provide better water treatment facilities in Honduras. Will officially start organization in the Fall of 2011.

6. Did some non-clinical community service at an elementary school. About 30-40 hours.

7. Played intramural sports (tennis and soccer). Got to the finals in tennis with my doubles partner.


Hopefully it'll all be worth it!
