Questions for Carrie:

  1. Why did you choose Emory? “Emory’s high ranking and reputation as a great PA school, the big city appeal of Atlanta and Ludacris is from here of course!”
  1. If you could go back in time, what would you tell Pre-PA student Carrie?

Three Things

            1. Live it up before school starts!

            2. Sleep more.

3. Don’t try and study the summer before school starts. Spend as much time as possible with friends and family.

3.   What is the most important characteristic of a PA student?

      You cannot be a whiner!

4.   How do you feel about Emory and Atlanta right now? “I think this is the best personal decision I have ever made. It was very difficult to leave Michigan where I have lived my entire life. It was really tough to leave my lifelong friends, family and boyfriend. I am constantly outside of my comfort zone. I have learned so much about myself since coming to Atlanta and Emory.”
