I attended the GAPI Networking Event as a Georgia Tech student and really enjoyed myself. The PowerPoint presentation was very helpful, and I really appreciated how open Dr. Garg was. I am always afraid that it will be the same information that I have heardover and over again, but he helped me open my mind to other factors I should consider when applying to medical school.
As pre-med students, we really appreciated the fact that so many doctors were willing to be shadowed by us, something that can be hard to find when one does not have familial or personal connections, and I know the Georgia Tech students really appreciated that. The only feedback I have for that is to possibly attach the field of practice and location of work for each doctor, but just having their contact info was incredible. We will be sure to contact you all with questions as we think of them about applying to medical school as well as medical school itself and life afterwards.
No other outside organization has expressed the same amount of interest to Georgia Tech pre-med students as GAPI has, and we cannot wait for next year's event - it will be bigger and better!
