How would you describe your classmates?
Two words: "The Best". I am surrounded every day by amazing people who I have immense intellectual respect for in clinical settings and have a ton of fun hanging out with outside of the hospital. They are my favorite thing about coming to this medical school.
What is your favorite thing to do in Chicago or the best thing about living in Chicago?
Having the lake is amazing. During the summer I either go on a run on the lake path or read a book on the beach almost every day I'm free. But the absolute best thing is the food. I keep a list of restaurants I have enjoyed which is now running off the screen on my phone, and I'm still constantly finding new places to go.
