Recently, I was privileged with the chance to attend Edvanced’s program in collaboration with UC Berkeley’s Pre-Med Honor Society. Completion of the program would make the other students and I members of Berkeley’s Pre-Med Junior Honor Society, a great privilege, especially for those of us who are hoping to attend Berkeley.
With the first session, I was immediately captivated by the speaker, Jami Wang. She discussed her experience at Berkeley while discussing tips and tricks to success in college, some vital things I plan to use in the future. Wang was extremely accomplished, even as an undergraduate, through her connections and immense amount of experience within the medical field. Her presentation was able to put medicine under a new light. She discussed her view of medicine and explained why she wanted to be a doctor, empowering us to take the initiative, now, to find out what career path we would like to take and why. Ms. Wang informed us of the lengthy process into being successful as a medical professional. With all the advice she was able to provide, I will surely be better prepared for my future as a college student by taking action now to build up a unique application and network through ways she had suggested.
Ms. Wang is not the only person who works at Edvanced. The other people there provide great service and are extremely kind. They are knowledgeable in their fields of study and attend to their clients as best as possible by trying to make space comfortable and providing refreshments.
I would definitely recommend attending Edvanced, especially their pre-med program, because it provides an in depth analysis of the path to becoming a doctor, Berkeley, and the path to being a successful medical professional.
