Why did you choose SMU?
I wanted to be a part of a university in which I could become close with faculty and students. Samuel Merritt University has a strong, solid reputation for their success in building and maintaining the strong character and foundation of knowledge that is expected of healthcare providers. Having such a firm base of understanding will put me on a path that will lead me to a lifetime of learning.
