Smrithi Upadhyayula, a senior at the University of Texas at Dallas, was already resigned to the fact that her email inbox would stay packed for the rest of her medical school application cycle. Every day, there seemed to be updates from one school or another about transcripts that needed to be updated or rec letters that needed to be resubmitted.

The political side of climate change has been slightly quiet until recently. However while Trump was president, we did see movement — unfortunately in the backward direction. In one of my previous articles, I wrote about how Trump took the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement. This step was not exactly surprising, but it did remove the commitment of the U.S. to reduce its greenhouse gas production. Trump also reduced the Environmental Protection Agency’s funding by a third.

Cameron Brown knows he can’t wait to be a doctor, and as of earlier this year he had years worth of experiences to show for it on his application. He had experience working full-time at a neurology clinic and a job lined up researching the impact of housing mobility on children with asthma. Beyond what could be seen on his LinkedIn profile, Brown had a personal interest in making health care more accessible after witnessing the barriers his family, many of whom are immigrants or people of color, faced.

There seems to be a stereotype going around that us STEM kids don’t know how to read. That we’re too engrossed with our mathematical proofs and cell cultures to be found between two pages of a book at Bird in Hand. From my interactions with several STEM majors, I would like to call cap on this idea.

Originally, I was hoping to write this piece about student experiences with the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). However, my plans pivoted when I got in touch with Belle Hartshorn, a senior Molecular and Cellular Biology major applying to medical school this summer. Hartshorn has never taken the MCAT, and she doesn’t plan to.
