I’d like to introduce you to three sisters who share a common interest with each other—and, given their futures in science and medicine—with you.
Amulya, Ananya and Alekhya Vadlakonda all chose Case Western Reserve University for their undergraduate careers, majoring in the sciences (biology, to be specific) and with plans for med school in their future.
Amulya served as chief of the award-winning CWRU Emergency Medical Service—a student-run organization that provides emergency medical assistance to the university community. She graduated in May, and is beginning medical school at the University of Los Angeles this fall. She credits CWRU for setting her on her path to her goal of becoming a physician: “I don’t think I would be attending medical school if it wasn’t for my time as an undergraduate at CWRU,” she says.
Her sisters are looking forward to similar success: Ananya is a sophomore who also participated in CWRU EMS. Alekhya joined CWRU this fall as a first-year student.
Following the path of their older sister and generations of science and pre-med students at Case Western Reserve before them, Ananya and Alekhya have a lot to look forward to:
- Undergraduate research and creative endeavors, in which 95% of science students participate
- A campus located in the heart of the a medical epicenter, with three major medical facilities within a mile, with plenty of opportunities for volunteering and shadowing
- Navigators, academic advisors and pre-health advisors who help you chart your course and take full advantage of the resources of a major STEM university.
As they each take the next step in their educational journeys, these sisters—like all CWRU science and pre-med majors—can be sure that their experiences here will put them on the path to success in med school and throughout their careers.
