A listener we’re calling Victor Von Stateschool called us at 347-SHORT-CT to continue the recent spate of listener questions about choosing a medical school. Sure, prestige is something to consider…and yes, perhaps moving away from home to broaden your horizons is a good idea…but what about just picking your cheapest option even when you have the stats to go elsewhere? MD/PhD students Sahaana Arumugam and Miranda Schene, and M2s Ananya Munjal and Nathen Spitz try to put it all together. Pro tip: you can actually pit schools’ offers against each other to lower your tuition!

In this fantastic episode, Emily Trimm takes us through her journey, which began with a move from England to the United States when she was eleven years old. At first, Emily had a dream to become a veterinarian but during high school, her focus shifted when she volunteered as an EMT. Throughout undergrad, Emily continued her experience as an EMT, immersed herself in research, and studied physics. When the time came to apply to medical school, she focused solely on MD/Ph.D. programs and credits two simple things for her extraordinary success: authenticity and consistency. Emily also elaborates on cultivating other passions and activities such as her love for ballroom dancing as well as finding joy in what you pursue!
