check' check' testing :)


Hey guys :) My name is Rani Berry and I'm a Sophomore Biology Major here at Siena :). Coming all the way from California, I'm so glad Siena has become a home away from home, I love it here, and I hope to share some of my favorite memories and experiences with you :)

Hey :) 

Yess we do have a straight medical program in conjunction with Albany Medical College, and in fact if you have any questions about the experience ( which is an amazing one so far), feel free to ask me, because I’m a Junior in the program right now :).  

Every year they accept between 12-14 students who have excelled academically and especially those who have a passion for service.

Students must have a minimum SAT of 1950 (minimum of 1300 in critical reading and math) or an ACT composite of 30+ and rank in the top 10 percent of their graduating class. Once these threshold values are met the committee focuses on assessing the candidates’ strengths in the following areas:

               • Scholarship
               • Leadership
               • Communication Skills
               • Commitment to Service
               • Potential Contributions to the Siena College Community

If you meet the initial requirements, then from your application the committee selects a group of students for an interview and after that you will receive your final admission decision.  

I think for any other specific information Siena admissions would be the best people to ask, but if you have any questions about the program and the experiences please let me know! :)

Anonymous said: Is it hard coming from CA and adjusting to NY?

Hey :)

So I honestly thought it WOULD be really really hard to adjust, but i actually didn’t find it too bad.  I think it honestly comes down to the friends that you meet and if they keep you happy, then you don’t miss home :)

The hardest part about the move though, was definitely the weather.  It was hard to change from wearing shorts and flip flops.. to gloves and north faces.

But when it comes right down to it, Siena is BEAUTIFUL in the winter with all the snow, and that plus my friends has made the move more than worth it :)

Anonymous said: What kind of classes are you taking this semester?

… it’s a pretty good mix of intense science courses and then the liberal arts :)
