Alexander Sorets

Alexander Sorets, B.S. '19

"I have been able to conduct research in a lab and be a teaching assistant for two courses. I believe that the BME major helped a lot when I was applying to Ph.D. programs, in that I could discuss current research with professors at a high level due to the number of papers I have read for my classes."

"Being able to interact closely with world-class faculty—each with their own fascinating backgrounds and research areas—was something I didn’t expect to have at my disposal when I first began my undergraduate career. I learned to appreciate it even more when I learned that students in larger majors didn’t have the same connections with their professors as BME students do." Read more
