About this livestream


With so much pressure to perform well in school and dedicate any free time to the college application process, high school can get very overwhelming very quickly.

So in this episode of Level up, Shravya will walk you through how to best manage your time during the college application process. She’ll draw upon her experiences having applied to both undergraduate and medical schools to teach you how to confront procrastination and avoid burnout, so you can stay well while achieving your goals.

This will also be an interactive session — so come with a pen and paper so you can partake in a custom exercise. And as always, we'll work to answer any questions you may have in the chat throughout the session.

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.
