About this livestream


Join Shravya for another great installment of her open advising hours. Shravya can answer any and all questions about the college application process and her experience as a pre-med student, as well as med school and beyond! Stop in to ask a few questions or stick around for the whole hour to get all of your college-related inquiries answered.

We're also offering a form where you can pre-submit your questions to Shravya, which you can access here.

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.

Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Shravya and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
