Chemistry (Pre-Physician Assistant)
Humanities in Medicine
Why you chose your major
I picked my major because I really enjoyed advanced chemistry in high school, and the coursework and requirements overlaps really well with the pre-PA track (and other pre-medicine tracks) which is something I knew I wanted to be a part of.
My favorite course so far has been psychology, because it juxtaposed humanities and natural sciences, both things I am very interested in. We learned a lot about the biology of the brain, and of course, the psychology of the mind.
I am also involved in the Cornhusker Marching Band, and this summer I volunteered with Camp Munroe at UNMC.
Why you chose Nebraska
I chose UNL because it is strong in the subjects I am interested in, and has a good relationship with medical programs in the state. It was also close to home, which was important to me.
