About this livestream


The pre-medical path is not for the faint of heart - the time commitment alone is usually a decade or more! If you’re considering this path, you probably have a lot of questions. Join Hale and Shravya as they discuss their personal pre-medical journeys, including the process, what they wish they knew beforehand, and common pitfalls. The chat will be open to any and all questions, so feel free to throw in your inquiries and make this session interactive!

Pop in to ask a few questions or stay for the whole stream to learn all about being pre-med from two of our in-house pre-med experts!

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.
