The research experience I gained at WJU setBiology
The research experience I gained at WJU set me apart from the competition for medical school. As a school without extensive graduate programs, WJU offers the undergraduate student opportunities normally absorbed by others. This experience helped me to obtain a training grant that provided my salary as a researcher at one of the top children’s hospitals in the world during the summer between my first and second years of medical school. The extensive variety of biology courses offered at WJU provided me with an excellent platform upon which to build in medical school. The personal atmosphere and small class size allows maximum tailoring of one's education. At WJU, a student can realistically recommend a course be added (as an elective) and take said course the next year. My course portfolio is more versed than nearly all of my medical school peers. While I cannot speak for all majors offered at WJU, the biology program is strong. It requires a two-year research project designed and carried out by the student but funded by the university. Some see this as added work. It is good to remember that an education is what you make of it. I see the required research as an amazing opportunity. By requiring the student to do the research, the school is also requiring itself to fund the project. There are VERY few times when a person will be told to pick ANYTHING biologically related that interests him/her and research it with full funding. It’s like getting a grant where you make up the category and your proposal is nearly guaranteed acceptance. If this interests you, go to I would suggest contacting Ken Rastall or Robert Shurina. I can guarantee they will know exactly who wrote this if presented with this assessment. This is truly a personal place where the professors know their students.

There are some staff and faculty that stillAverageBiology
There are some staff and faculty that still care about the students and not the money. I am going to be a senior next year and I use to love this school before they became a money hungry university. I am looking into transferring but I am so far into my major here that I may have to stay here for another year. I use to want to be here because I loved the school but now I feel like I have no other choice but to stay here. This school makes you stay all four years on campus if you are not from this area. This is suppose to be my home away from home and prepare me for the "real world" since I'm from across the continent and this doesn't feel like home anymore. The new policy changes treat the student like children and not adults, they make definite changes and months later inform the students about the changes. They have the tendency to think about the money first and not the students lately. It hurts me to say that I am not proud to be a cardinal anymore.
