Brief statement about how the McNair Scholars Program helped you get where you are today.
The McNair Scholars program provided a multitude of opportunities to advance on the Ph.D. track. Through the program, I learned about the graduate school application process and received great advice on how to be successful throughout the process. If I had not been in the program, I do not think I would have learned as much about the graduate application process as I now know. In addition, through the McNair Program I was able to participate and get involved in a research lab on campus, present my research at a national conference, and participate in a GRE preparatory class--all probably would not have occurred without the help of the McNair's Scholars program.
Any advice for new McNair Scholars?
My advice is simple-- follow your passion and your gut feeling, the rest will follow.
