Elias will give you his best advice for collegiate success, covering everything from study habits to networking and work-life balance. You can also interact with him in the chat to get personalized advice based on your individual preferences.

Elias’ advice is like a good Netflix show: you'll want to keep watching, and there are no advertisements! So stop by ask a few questions or stay for the whole session for a tasteful guide to succeeding in higher education.

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.
