AT A GLANCE

“Beginning my freshman year, I started working with my Pre-med advisor; she really helped me and even paired me with a Seton Hall alumni mentor, an orthopedic oncological surgeon at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. I got to observe him during 30 surgeries and assist him with several research projects. This, combined with my on-campus research with Dr. Muldow on stress hormones—as well as my two summer research positions at Columbia University Medical Center working on diabetes research—truly taught me to apply what I was studying in the classroom and helped me get into medical school.”
