Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?

I chose Vanderbilt because of the combination of world-class academics and high level athletics

What are your career goals?

For the short-term I think I want to continue to play basketball at the professional level. Long-term I want to hopefully work in the front-office of a professional sports team.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

In order to be academically successful at Vanderbilt, you must manage your time very effectively.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

I manage my schedule by trying to map out assignments early and always making sure I have ample time to do them so I am not staying up all night cramming in assignments just before they are due.

What is your ritual before taking a test?

Before taking a test I always look over my notes one last time and try to memorize one new thing I may not know as well.

What is your favorite quote?
