Georgia Institute of Technology, B.S. in Biology, Research Option
Cherry L. Emerson Research Award (Georgia Tech)
I took two and a half years off in between undergrad and medical school to serve on disasters with AmeriCorps NCCC - FEMA Corps, complete field research in Colorado, and become a Wilderness EMT. I gained new perspectives and hands on skills. Don't hesitate to take time off! You will add diversity to your class through your unique experiences.
