"There are many things that I loved about my undergraduate experience at Simmons, but one of the highlights was the strong community of female scientists. In my studies at Simmons, both in the classroom and the laboratory, I discovered a great love for research, and gained a solid background in both the sciences and humanities. This background prepared me well for my application to and acceptance into medical school. I am now a 3rd year student at the Northwestern University Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), where I am earning my M.D. and Ph.D." — Jessica Queen, S'05.
