A bit about myself: I’m a second year medical student at Dalhousie University. When I’m not studying I try to relax with whatever I can (coffee with friends, getting a workout in, binge watching a TV series, etc.). In the summer though, most of my time is taken up with research, golf, and tennis. I’ve coached tennis for many years and find the act of coaching or mentoring extremely rewarding in whatever form it’s in. I’m currently one of three head coordinators of the Halifax chapter of Making Waves, and during my undergraduate I volunteered at various health-related organizations across the city. Applying to medical school is both an exciting and stressful time in life, so any little bit of encouragement and advice I can offer to alleviate that stress and increase your confidence is worth it!
Application experience: I applied to University of Toronto, Queen’s University, and Dalhousie University. I interviewed and was accepted to Dalhousie University on my first attempt after completing my B.Sc. (Combined Hons) in Biochemistry and Psychology.
