I currently work as a medical scribe in an Emergency Room.
I am a military veteran, having been in the Air Force for the past 6 years. I was a developmental test engineer by trade, studying electrical engineering in my undergrad. I took all my postbach classes at night while I was holding down my 60+ hour per week Air Force job.
I have a year\\\'s worth of volunteer experience in an emergency room at a different hospital.
I have several distinctions from my military service, including an annual award winner among my 100+ peers, president of a junior military officer professional society, the military outstanding voluntary service medal for voluntary efforts above and beyond the call of duty, the air force commendation medal for outstanding military performance at my first assignment, and various other accolades.
I was an RA during my undergrad, and then a Hall Director of a residence hall my senior year. I was on the dean\\\'s list every semester but one, and graduated magna cum laude with a major in electrical engineering and a minor in mathematics.
I was the vice president of the school chapter Electrical Engineering honor\\\'s society, the President of the General Engineering Honor\\\'s society, and a member of the academic honor society Phi Kappa Phi.
Hobbies: private pilot\\\'s license with 116 hours pilot in command, rebuilding engines and auto maintenance, running, golf, sailing, gardening, skeet shooting, weight lifting, photography, carpentry and woodworking, skiing, and hiking to name a few.
LOR\'s from previous commander (colonel), engineering professor, organic chemistry professor, committee letter from post-bach school, emergency medicine doctor (one DO, one MD), and college calculus professor.

Undergraduate college: Tennessee Tech University
Undergraduate Area of study: Engineering/Technology
Summary of Experience:
I really enjoyed the area. Hedged in a somewhat rural but still vaguely metropolitan area, I think Quillen has a lot to offer. This is definitely in the running for top picks for the location and collegiality of the faculty and students from what I could tell of my visit.
First acceptance, I\'m excited! By the way, for those curious, acceptances come via certified mail :)
