About this livestream


Studying: what a concept. Everyone has their own way of doing it (with some being more productive than others) and with AP season coming up, you’ve probably been wondering how you can improve your own study habits.

But don’t fear — Shravya is here! On this stream, she’ll be bringing her best tips on studying for the AP exams and teaching you how to incorporate these practices into your current strategy. Stop by to ask any and all questions you may have about studying for a specific subject or just the APs in general.

Your host

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.
