We'll be taking a peek behind the curtain at Harvard Medical School with Morgan, one of our incredible medical school admissions coaches. 

Morgan is originally from Southern New Jersey, spent the past four years in Williamsburg, VA studying at the College of William & Mary, and is now in Boston as a first year medical student at Harvard. As an undergraduate, Morgan majored in Hispanic Studies and minored in Biology (inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, winning the distinction of most outstanding 2017 inductee of the Alpha Chapter at William & Mary).  Her time was equally divided between research projects in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities - which brings a unique interdisciplinary nature to her approach.

How to Have Success as a Student Athlete: Tips from an Insider

Ah, the student-athlete. In today’s landscape of college admissions and college scholarships, many of us recognize the importance and opportunity given to the student-athlete. In performing well and playing on a school’s team, you earn both a spot in the classroom at that institution and a “quote-unquote salary” for attracting revenue to the school through the sports program (i.e. earn a scholarship). The sport becomes a job in some sense, as one must continue to earn this benefit. Whether you currently are a collegiate student-athlete or an aspiring student-athlete (at the middle school or high school level), learning to balance the two is always tricky. The NCAA acknowledges that at any given moment during their education, student-athletes are all at once a full time athlete and a full time student. How can there possibly be enough hours in the day for juggling two full time jobs? From my experience as a tutor for this subset of students in college, there are student-athletes that can balance the two with great poise, others who struggle, and others that put the extra effort in to make it work.
