  • Application cycles: 08/08/2009
  • Demographics: Male, 38, Caucasian
  • Home state: Louisiana
  • Last Active: 06/29/2010
  • Brief Profile: I have a somewhat unusual background. I started my undergraduate career in pure mathematics with the goal of earning a Ph.D. in the field. Midway through my fourth year during the application process, I reneged and decided to explore possibilities in the biological sciences. Shortly after getting into that, I decided that I really wanted to go into medicine. I considered after my fifth year, but I felt that I did not have enough clinical experience, and I had not yet taken the MCAT, so I decided to postpone applying for a year. After graduation, I spent a year working in a residential facility for individuals with developmental disabilities.

    My resume is a bit of a mixed bag:

    -three years as the president of the Quiz Bowl Club
    -one summer of math research
    -numerous math awards and achievements
    -six months working in the lab of a molecular biologist and plant pathologist
    -four W\'s, from my early years
