Taking AP classes prepared me for college in many ways — from strengthening my study skills to developing my problem-solving and communication abilities. And the credits I earned from taking AP exams have allowed me to tackle high-level courses as an underclassman and get deeply involved in my department. I now have opportunities I would never have imagined so early in my college career, like attending a presentation by a Nobel laureate and getting involved in field research. I also have the space to try new things — singing in the Glee Club, taking elective courses, and pursuing a unique minor that combines my interests. Fully exploring my passions in college represents a commitment to my own body, mind, and spirit that I hope will serve me as a future integrative physician.
