What were your early impressions of ASAP, and how did they change over time?

I joined ASAP to finish my degree in a shorter time than what it usually takes. I just thought it was going to be an in and then out situation. However, I made some great friends and my advisors were lovely. To this day I can still call them for advice or they call me just to check in and see how I am doing.


What was the most rewarding thing about being an ASAP student?

Making long-lasting friends and developing friendships with the staff of the program.


What, in your opinion, makes ASAP unique?

Small classes with other ASAP students.  In ASAP it is easy to get along with each other.


Looking back, how do you think that ASAP impacted your life?

The advisors were good at helping me earn my degree by making sure I was taking the right courses and were also good at helping me with my time management so that I would not be so stressed and would focus on the things that were important.


What is one of the most memorable moments you had as an ASAP student?

The trips, which included a Broadway show and concert--which was helpful as it was a requirement for one of my music classes.


What are your career goals and/or future plans?

To be a pediatrician.
