What I plan on studying in college: Pharmacy

Status for the fall: As of right now, I have been accepted into every college which I have applied to but am still awaiting one program. I have an interview at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) next week which will determine my admission into a highly selective five-year accelerated PharmD program. This program will consist of 2 years of undergraduate study at Edinboro university and three years graduate study at LECOM. Hopefully, if all goes well at the interview, I will be admitted into this program and will attend Edinboro in the fall.

What I'm most excited about for college: I am most excited for a new part of my life and to experience new opportunities and to really take advantage of the full college experience.

What I'm most nervous about for college: I am most nervous about the affordability of college and financing my education.

What's notable, education-wise, about my family: I am going to be the first member of my family to attend college, so this is really going to be an amazing experience for me and I am really looking forward to it!
