Brief statement about how the McNair Scholars Program helped you get where you are today.

The McNair program aims to help under represented students in pursuing their doctoral program. Their main groups of interests are much like Ronald McNair himself, first generation, low-income minorities. They help with everything from test preparation to convering hinder costs that would otherwise make it extremely difficult for able-student to apply to higher education programs. The McNair program is a great fit for me because I fall under thee categories, and am currently struggling to understand the graduate route necessities. I also find it difficult to navigate options, especially given that many of my peers that are in PhD's or MD'a, and thus have had a head start on choices since high school.
