Available for:

My name is Margo and I am a second year medical student. I graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013. There I majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Before entering medical school, I completed a Masters of Science in Medical Physiology (MSMP) at Loyola University Chicago.


Currently, I am thinking about going into Family Medicine and/or Obstetrics and Gynecology. In medical school, I am involved in Student National Medical Association (SNMA), Health Professions Recruitment and Exposure Program (HPREP), Bioethics and Professionalism Honors Program, and LUC Mentors. Outside of medical school I love running, reading, and--most importantly--spending time with my wonderful family and friends. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about applying to medical school, post-bac programs, taking a gap year, students underrepresented in medicine, making your GPA/MCAT work for you, maintaining school-life balance (married in medical school), or any general questions that you may have. I will do my best to assist you or point you in the right direction.
