I started [medical] school a little worried about my level of preparation and I thought I was going to be behind, but I could not have been more wrong. I had a very solid background and felt like the education I received at BYU-I was better than my classmates because of how much the professors at BYU-I care about the students. I will always be grateful for the opportunities I was given at BYU-I and the education I was able to get.Jeff J.,
