How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?
"Being a biology graduate at Duke has helped me tremendously in dental school. I was prepared for the physiology classes in my first 2 years of dental school, and oftentimes these courses felt like a review. Being at Duke also taught me valuable time management skills and studying habits."
What advice would you give students in Biology?
"Learn as much as you can while you're at Duke, and take advantage of all of the resources at Duke. Duke is very well equipped, and Duke provides an atmosphere where exploring your passions is easy and available. If you're interested in something, take more courses, or get involved with research to explore that topic. Research experience is valuable, especially if you plan to go to medical school, dental school, or any other graduate school."
