"While attending Western Carolina University, my dream of becoming a physician became a goal. The faculty at Western Carolina University in both The Honors College and the Psychology Department were dedicated to helping me gain successful admission into medical school as well as broaden my medical experiences with local physicians and patients. These valuable experiences are what strengthened my desire to become a physician and aided my admission into medical school."
