Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?

I chose Vanderbilt because it had both things I was looking for: a very good bowling team and excellent education.

What are your career goals?

To start, I will probably try myself in a few different positions, but at the end of the day I want to find the job I am enjoying and will be happy in.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

I think that it is different for everybody, but you for sure need to be able to manage your time and find the right studying style to help you be successful.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

I like to plan ahead. I am pretty good at telling how long certain things will take me, so I plan accordingly to make sure I get everything done in time.

What is your ritual before taking a test?

I usually get to class early to give myself enough time to relax and go through my notes for the last time.
