ngl I hate writing essays with a passion so maybe 7/10 at best if I try. Should have some 7/10 LORs.
Russian is my first language and I can comprehend Korean at about an A1 (Mayyybe A2) level. Blame my Korean Drama phase.
I found a cardiac surgeon to shadow and recently applied to a PT clinic in my area to volunteer at for clinical experience.
Cost Constraints / Budget
Household income at ~$120,000 per year with around $100,000 in my college fund. EFC ~ $25,000 but they’d never spend this much on me
Please match me with some BS/MD programs that are available for Texas residents. Don’t care about what state they’re in as long as they accept residents of Texas. Thanks!
