    Genetic Counseling Fall 2019 Applicants

    Hey everyone! I’m applying this fall and am looking forward to going through the process with you guys! A little about myself: I’m a rising senior undergraduate majoring in genetics with minors in Spanish and biotechnology (GPA: 3.7). I’m involved in a scholarship program at my university through which I do professional development and volunteering stuff each year. I’m also a mentor to incoming freshman students who are part of my scholarship program and started doing this sophomore year. I’m the president of a service/leadership club, TA for organic chemistry, and have been working in a neuroendocrinology/genetics research lab for a year and a half now. I just started working for crisis text line in March and will have GC shadowing experience in cancer, pediatrics, and prenatal when it’s time to apply. I’m wondering what you guys are doing for recommendations? A lot of schools only require 2, but some (Denver) want 4. I know some people have said a rec from a GC is a big plus, but I feel like I don’t know the ones I shadowed well enough to ask. I’d probably ask the professor I TA for and my PI in my lab, but I’m curious to see who you guys are asking (and what previous applicants think).
