  • Brief Profile: I attended the University of Iowa receiving degrees in Biology and Accounting. After three application cycles I was not accepted and decided to attend Barry University in Miami for their Biomedical Science Masters program. I studied hard and got more involved as well as increased my shadowing hours. I retook the DAT and reapplied for the 2013 cycle. I was finally accepted! It has been a long journey but I believe the experiences I have gained in my failures and overcoming them are priceless and I have no regrets.
