I grew up in Brookfield, Wisconsin pretty set on pursuing the premed track. During my senior year of high school, I narrowed down my college choices to my state school (UW-Madison) and USC. But, because of the hefty price tag that comes with the prospect of attending med school, I ultimately decided on my state school. Although I had been pretty interested in business and the skills involved in those pursuits, my values of wanting to pursue a career with high social impact and my (false) idea that business couldn't involve this prevented me from legitimately considering it as an option for a long time. However, after half a semester and some self reflection, I decided I officially wanted to change paths and explore my options. Because LA is such a vibrant and interesting city and I felt that USC was a school that would allow me to better learn what I was more interested in, I reached out to USC in hopes of deferring my admission and coming in the spring. I transferred into the business school my first semester and joined the Marshall Business Network to learn about the many industries within business. After listening to many presentations, I decided I was interested in learning about consulting with possible ideas to attend law school. I am hoping to learn from a mentor who is interested in consulting as well and can help me navigate Marshall and consulting recruitment (and perhaps show me ways to integrate social impact into that journey)!
