3. researching- worked with a local prof on some stuff and i'm planning on submitting to science fairs and hopefully qualify for something larger
4. swimming- quit club swimming but i've been a member of my school's varsity swim team since my freshman year. nothing too special here but swimming took up so much of my time during the winter

6. i tried starting a medforum club at my school but they're waiting on club approvals right now. we'll see though
7. tried out for columbia shp recently and results come in 17 days--> i'll keep this post updated.
