This is the golden question. Even now, as a sophomore, I get asked frequently why I chose DePaul. The summer before my freshman year I felt like I was a broken record. Every time I get asked it, I seem to forget every reason WHY I chose DePaul. In actuality, there are many reasons why I chose to come to this great school!
I applied to five colleges and got accepted into four of them (gosh darn it, reach school). Of the four, I was torn between Ohio State and DePaul. OSU was closer to home and was technically cheaper due to in-state tuition, but I received the biggest academic scholarship from DePaul and truly loved the school more. I also was accepted into the Honors and Pathways Program. I was really excited about the Pathways Program as I was very passionate about becoming a doctor and the program was a perfect match for me. In my opinion, it would have been a silly and careless decision to say no to a school that was giving me the opportunity to shave a year off my undergraduate degree and create connections and a good relationship with a medical school.
