I wouldn't change a thing about my undergraduate choice: far from home, affordable, excellent reputation for my field, large school. I do believe I would have chosen veterinary medicine over science, however, as it leads to a relatively stable profession that does good, pays well and does not require constant proposal writing and funding for survival.

I will share that my graduate school was an excellent choice as it has very strong educational priorities over publication for the students. The goal of Ph.D. training is learning how to learn and learning how to do science. It is NOT cranking out papers for the mentor. The goal of medical school is to learn how to practice medicine, not "save people" during rotations or publish from a 3 week long jaunt in someone's lab. Learn first while in school and then go out and apply it.

I really loved the school I went to, but I think I would like to do a semester overseas, probably somewhere in Europe. I'd also love to try a semester at a school with a large student body, as my college only had about 2,000 students. I think it would be fun to experience a Division I college football or basketball game.

I would choose an on-line university to have the greatest flexibility in scheduling around my personal/work schedule.

I would choose a College & University close to home. We have some very good Colleges and Universities here in Maryland such as Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland, Morgan University & Howard University, etc......
I'm looking forward to going to one of them very soon to further my education, because I want to grow, and learn more in education and to be a great asset to my Professional Development and to my Organization in achieving all goals that are being put in place.
Thank you
