Other degrees/information about them: I was a philosophy and English double major before matriculating to law school.  I realized I had no passion for a career in law and left law school during my second semester.  I completed the necessary science courses and applied to medical school hoping to find a profession that allowed me to work both with my hands and my intellect in a way that made a tangible difference for others.  I am happy to have found that with this surgery program.

Future plans: I have very different surgical interests, transplant surgery and rural general surgery, each of which will influence my future plans differently.
