My name is Meredith Sigler and currently, I am in my 4th year of pharmacy school. I wanted to get involved with StudentMentor.org as it seemed like such a great way to reach out to students. My undergraduate career saw me change my major seven different times, as I struggled to decide what career to pursue. I eventually set my sights on pharmacy, but even once I had finally decided to apply, I felt completely lost and had so many questions and doubts about whether or not I was doing the right things. With StudentMentor.org, I saw the opportunity to help guide students along their journey, as I know just how confusing it can be sometimes.
I have been very lucky to have a mentee that has decided to pursue pharmacy school. She has had so many great questions for me. As the profession is becoming more competitive, pursuing graduate and post-graduate training is imperative to maintain a competitive edge. Choosing the school at which to start your graduate level work can be challenging, and I have been doing my best to provide my mentee with some topics to consider as she makes her decision. This has been great for me as well, as it has really helped to evaluate my priorities for what I would like to accomplish in my career.
I have been recommending StudentMentor.org others! StudentMentor.org is a great way to easily connect with and help students.
