  • Application cycles: 06/01/2009
  • Demographics: Female, 36, Caucasian
  • Home state: Colorado
  • Last Active: 11/10/2018
  • Brief Profile: Minor in history, major in biology.
    Volunteered in Peds Playroom of Hospital. Worked in a pediatrician\'s office doing back office work. Phlebotomy experience (hospital) post-college.
    Several campus clubs, various leadership experiences.
    No research experience.

    Much of my credits are AP/IB credits, so I graduated in 3 years (easily; I started with 46 credits). I have advanced classes in biology, but I only took the physics labs in university, not the lectures. As such, I am excluded from applying to some schools, including SLU, Rochester, Columbia, etc.

    Now that I\'ve matriculated, I\'m more than happy to answer any questions about UVA specifically, or the cycle in general.
