Undergraduate: University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas

Why Baylor: My interview day was second to none. The faculty were great, the residents were having a blast, and it was clear that the training at Baylor was one of the best in the country. At Baylor, you care for Houston's underserved at the county hospital, get tons of surgical volume at the VA, and train at affiliated private hospitals, all in the most diverse city in the country, so you see everything when it comes to eye pathology. Plus, Houston is an awesome and lively place with one of the best food scenes around.
Outside Interests: Hiking, camping, baking pizzas, chasing my two border collies, watching movies and hanging out with friends and family.
