Why did you choose to study at New York Institute of Technology? I chose New York Institute of Technology because I wanted to find a school that was local and didn’t have a huge tuition cost.

Why did you choose to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering?
I chose this major mostly because of personal interests. I originally wanted to be a surgeon, but I felt that would be too stressful, so then I wanted to be an engineer, and then I woke up one day and thought, why not combine the two and go into biomedical engineering?

Also, I’m looking forward to meeting new people and hopefully making some new friendships with my classmates. I am excited to learn about the real world and my major
