    "Coming from an economically disadvantaged family, I could never have afforded the MCAT training course to help me prepare for one of the most important tests of my life. JAMP provided me with free access to Kaplan and to a summer intensive MCAT course."

    "I found the summer internships to be the most beneficial aspect of JAMP. The educational benefits were incredible! Going to gross anatomy lab, shadowing physicians, and volunteering with children all in one week was commonplace, and this does not even include the medical courses and guest lectures."

    How has JAMP helped you as you strive to achieve your goal of becoming a doctor?
    One of the greatest features of JAMP is that it makes going to medical school a reality so early on in your pre-med career. The relief of guaranteed acceptance made it easy to focus on the interests I wanted to pursue in medical school, but it also allowed me to experiment with classes and extracurriculars that are less ordinary for pre-med students. In the end, these experiences helped shape many of my personal and professional interests, and I believe they will make me a better service to my community in my future as a physician. 

    What advice would you like to offer current or future JAMP students?
    To my fellow JAMPer's: I'd advise you to look hard into each of the schools in Texas, and really explore how each may fit into the career path you see yourself moving towards. Every school in this state offers the highest standard of education, but they each offer their own unique assortment of experiences. You have the opportunity to go to any of these schools which is a luxury many applicants do not have, so be sure to take advantage of it! 

    What aspect of JAMP has been most beneficial to you (e.g. scholarships, mentorship, etc.)?
    I found the summer internships to be the most beneficial aspect of JAMP. The educational benefits were incredible! Going to gross anatomy lab, shadowing physicians, and volunteering with children all in one week was commonplace, and this does not even include the medical courses and guest lectures. In addition to education, I forged friendships during those two summers that I will have for the rest of my career. 

    Any other biographical information/advise you wish to provide.
    I am a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major at Trinity University, and I will be attending the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Medical School in the Fall of 2015.
