    Summary of Application Experience

    Background:
    Older applicant due to bizarre life experiences (graduated undergrad at 24). I had 2 gap years in my transcript where I was out of college to work and support myself. At the end of the day, I think the adversity strengthened my application because it was a focus during interviews.

    ECs:
    - 6 years of clinical research experience at CHLA serving an underrepresented minority population: HIV positive teenagers, homeless LGBT youth, and high-risk youth. Conducted qualitative studies.
    - 3 years of work experience
    - Extensive volunteer experience in public health and LGBT communities. Published websites, papers, and presentations on a variety of social welfare and advocacy topics.
