“My adviser helped me solve a lot of questions about choosing courses and how to plan out my academic career. I have been meeting with my adviser consistently just to make sure I am on the right track at the UW, and also I got so much good advice about how to thrive in college.”Jimmy's Story

I started out with an interest in psych, took some courses, really liked biopsychology, and started pursuing biology/pre-med. I always had an interest in pre-med, but wasn't ready for the academic rigor that biology and chemistry courses required. I love writing and critical analysis, so I decided on English. I then took a phonetics course through the Speech & Hearing Sciences department one summer and it all kind of just fell into place. Now I’m in Med School.
