    My calculated GPA doesn\'t take into consideration that like 30 of the credits are from classes I took WHILE in high school... how stupid.

    -Tutored and TAd ochem (amongst other classes).
    -Intern/Volunteer in Cairo (summer).
    -Exchange student to Italy (senior year of high school).

    Diversity Essay Topics:

    -Gay male (was out on the diversity essay AND the primary; I recommend all gays do such).
    -Religious minority (atheist; I think this might be indirectly stated on a couple diversity essays).
    -Lived as a racial minority in the Middle East (white; and I know this sounds weird but you really are treated differently).


    -From doctors I shadowed, volunteer supervisors, and teachers (one of which was my PI).
