How did you choose your area of study?
I was elated to find that Lake Forest College offered a neuroscience major. The neuroscience program allows me to get a taste of classes from a wide array of disciplines. For the past few years, the inner workings of the brain has completely fascinated me and the fact that so much is left to be discovered gives me hope that I will be able to leave a mark on the field one day. I certainly look forward to taking a class in Molecular Neuroscience as well as writing my own senior thesis. I know my work and experiences at Lake Forest College will pave the way for a successful four years in Medical School and another eight years in neurosurgery residency. I have a long way to go, but it was Plutarch who said, “The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
