Remember how tough it was to find your footing in college? Finding the buildings and the classrooms, breaking in to an already vibrant social community, and deciding what groups and organizations to join — there was a lot of stuff you worked through, and it felt pretty overwhelming.
Every year, millions of college freshmen go through the same struggle that you did. And for premed students applying to medical school, the process is even more complex. What are the right groups to join that will help you get volunteer experiences, community work, research, and leadership?
Well I’d like to fix that, but to do it, I need your help. As I continue to build INQUARTA.com out as a singularly helpful resource to all premeds (and predents, allied health, MBA and law), I realize just how challenging it is to “find your footing” when you first start out in college.
Which colleges are best for premeds? Can you review yours here?
And for high school seniors who are neck-deep in applying to colleges, it’s even tougher. How do you find out what colleges are really helpful for premeds? Truth is, there are no readily-available resources for this.
So let’s leverage our pre-med community and build one out.
Please leave a comment below with a candid evaluation of your college. Together, you’ll create the best single source for other premeds, and you’ll help literally millions of fellow students every year.
That’s some of the biggest impact we can have on the 90,000 (Source: AAMC) physician shortfall that AAMC predicts we will see in the U.S. by 2020. I sincerely invite you to help me correct that shortfall.
