Chicago, Illinois, United States
George Borrelli is a medical student that graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2015 with a B.S. in Biology and completed a minor in Biostatistics. He is currently an MS2 at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
I am currently a first year medical student at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. I matriculated into medical school the same year I graduated from Loyola University Chicago in May, 2015. I am more than happy to answer any questions pre-medical students may have regarding the long journey to medical school. I know the road to medical school is a very stressful process, and I believe solid, reliable advice can go a long way. If there are any questions regarding the application cycle, MCAT prep, medical school interviews, research, or any other questions, I would be happy to help.
Some more about me as a person: During my time at Loyola University Chicago, I played ice hockey for a year. I was involved in an on campus organization called GlobeMed for four years and worked in the Loyola University Writing Center as a writing tutor. I spent my summers volunteering at the hospital, coaching baseball, and conducting pharmaceutical research at Midwestern University. My hobbies include going to the gym, playing ice hockey, going to the movies, and spending quality time with my family whenever I get the chance.
Here at Stritch, I am currently involved in multiple physician specialty interest groups, including the Anesthesiology Interest Group’s APEP program. I am a member of NLVS and a member of the Admissions Outreach Committee and Interview Committee. Currently, I am active in Emergency Medicine research through the Loyola Emergency Department.
At this point in my medical school career, I am not sure which field of medicine I want to pursue. I have a wide range of interests and I am currently spending my time exploring those interests.
