Extra Curricular Information

Researcher for Amnesty International
APHA member
Alpha Chi member
Studied in Trinidad and Guatemala for a bit
Currently an Administrator/CFO for a Medical Company
Have my MPH

Hmmmm...done a lot of stuff actually - some research in Madagascar and Mauritius, a community mentor, did a program for pregnant teens, was a diabetes prevention and control coordinator, sponsor two boys, etc...

Have a Certificate in Humanitarian Assistance...

I guess there's a lot more about me, but don't want to talk about myself anymore than necessary!

Let's just say I tend to be pretty well rounded and am always looking for new ways to grow.

Additional info & updates

Well, I've been out of school for the past couple of years working...just hoping that I get into a good school....have my interview at Northwestern this Thursday!!! Kinda nervous....

K - back home...I feel like my interview went well, but now I REALLY REALLY want to get in Northwestern...thing is my stats are low...so, here's hoping...

Ummm....just got an email from an Emily Burr from the University of Miami - inviting me to an Admitted Students Day - thing is - no acceptance letter!! Hmmm...been out of town two weeks, probably got misplaced? We'll see....

Yay!!! My very first acceptance - Miami! I'm going to law school!!

They're coming in - hopefully, it will continue getting better and better....

01/29/07 - American University Acceptance
02/01/07 - University of Maryland Acceptance
02/06/07 - Gotta call from the dean of WNEC - full scholarship...
02/08/07 - In at Loyola - call from the dean
02/12/07 - In at Vandy - forgot I applied...!
03/03/07 - Dean's Scholarship at Vandy - 15K a year...wow...they really want me....top of my list now!
03/07/07 - Email from Mark Hill - waitlisted at Duke...
3/15/06 - In at UC Boulder - sent my withdrawal letter...

Alright - I sent in my acceptance letter and seat deposit to Vandy...so, unless I hear good news from 3 other (reach) schools my cycle will be over!

I think Northwestern lost my app :O( - it's been almost four months now...is that a good or bad thing????

congrats on miami (and american - it is a great school from what i understand and lots of opportunities in dc) --- any opinion on miami and its campus? My relatives in FL actually gave me a negative reference... that's a shame b/c I want to go someplace warm. Good luck.

Thanks bears - I've actually done a ton of research, but never visited the school...I have some friend who's a defense attorney there and he said that though the campus is gorgeous and the weather beautiful I should definitely choose American over Miami unless I'm planning on staying there... I would love to go to school there, but his advice plus other things I've read and heard make it doubtful... Sorry to be negative too - hope this helps!

Thanks Arturo - good luck on the rest of your cycle!

warm climate schools

Well I do have Miami, Tulane and Pacific (not positive about what Sacramento is like) on my list --- I even like the idea of going to a more moderate climate like up in oregon.... so my problem is not so much getting in somewhere w/ better weather than Chicago but deciding which ones I want to take off work to fly out to (well rejections will likely narrow it down a little bit...) And after all that it is possible I'll just stay in Chicago.
