High School Experience: Public school in a suburban community in Southern California with a graduating class of about 250 students. There was a strong culture of going to college.
First Generation College Student: No
Major: Neuroscience. I’m on the pre-med track but my career interests have diverged a bit.
Extracurricular Activities: I participate in 180 Degrees Consulting, which is a non-profit consulting organization that is dedicated to helping non-profits. I’m also involved with the Journal of Global Health, which is a student-run biannual academic journal.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
There is a sense of community with the pre-professional community and it exposes you to people that you can meet. For me specifically, it opened me up to possibly going into consulting and introduced me to people with similar interests who can help practice cases before interviews and stuff like that.
