At that point, Evan felt the elite institutions Delaney was encouraging him to apply to were out of his league. “I didn’t think there was any chance I’d get into that school, so there was no use in spending the money on the admissions applications.”
But she believed in him and told him not to “sell himself short,” saying she was sure he had a chance to get into a lot of those prestigious schools. She knew what caliber of student he was and that he could keep up with competing peers from across the nation. “This was eye-opening to me and allowed me to expand my horizons and include some schools I would not have considered had she not had those conversations with me.”
“I’m indebted to Dr. Delaney for where I am today.”
Where is that? Having graduated summa cum laude from the University of Southern Indiana, Evan just finished his first year at Harvard Medical School and is on his way to fulfilling his dream of becoming a physician.
