I would like to tell Wellesley students and alums thinking about applying for medical school or research programs to believe in themselves. Register others' opinions and advice thoughtfully, but also stay true to yourself and frequently recall your personal motivations for wanting to pursue a given career: this will shine through during the application process. Wellesley prepares its students a lot more than they realize sometimes, not only in terms of academics, but also because Wellesley gives its students the tools to develop their passions and implement changes they want to see in the world.
