I first looked at IUS because I was going to be a music composition major, but I also really enjoyed chemistry and found it fascinating. I came to an open house here, and went and talked to the music department and really liked the people I talked to, but then I met Dr. Haub with the chemistry department and she gave such a good sales pitch that I decided to major in chemistry instead.
My current goal is to get accepted into med school. I took the MCAT (Medical college admission test) back in January, from there I had to fill out the AMCAS (American medical college application service) and write my personal statement. I then applied to IU School of Medicine's Early Decision Program and have my interview August 28th. Then I will have an answer from the early decision program by October 1st. If I get turned down on early decision, my application goes into the general application pool for IU, but I will also apply to UofL Med School, and University of South Alabama's med school.
I did an internship in high school were I got to shadow several different doctors, I even got to scrub into some surgeries. After that I program I decided I wanted to be a doctor. I decided I need to go to med school because our country has some pretty strict laws about practicing unlicensed medicine.
Talk to your advisers and find out who is/has gone through the process currently/before. I had invaluable help from both Ben and Andrew Stillman while I was going through the application process. The Honors Program puts on a panel discussion about grad school that covers everything from applying to succeeding in grad school, I highly recommend you attend this as a sophomore or junior if you are even remotely interested in going to grad school. Start early, talk to the professors in your department your freshman year, they will help you line up the courses necessary to succeed if you wish to attend grad school.
