  • Application cycles: 06/23/2010
  • Demographics: Female, 34, Caucasian
  • Home state: Missouri
  • Last Active: 07/23/2010
  • Brief Profile: Graduated with a BSc Honours in Environment: Biodiversity & Conservation. The \'Honours\' is not a cum laude distinction; it does however mean I completed courses in my major with a CGPA of over 3.3, and I conducted two semester\'s worth of independent laboratory research.

    Next, I decided to study the Control of Infectious Diseases in London. It\'s a very interdisciplinary epidemiology, public health, infectious disease program with a really diverse staff and student profile, and many opportunities to do cool things. Like right now, I\'m in Moscow for the summer, interning at the World Health Organization and writing my thesis on MDR-TB transmission.

    It should be noted that I attended DePaul University for my first year, and left the school with a quarter\'s worth of experience as a Biology research assistant and a CGPA of 3.73

    Sustainable McGill Project: group member. I attended weekly meetings and was the brains/planner of a really cool fundraiser held at a tiki bar. Unfortunately, we only made 300 dollars. Shame.
