The Locker It started out as a secret - an inconspicuous location in which to hide contraband. However, any secret worth keeping can rarely be kept. One person saw, then he told another. Little by little, knowledge of our operation spread: there’s a locker in the high school filled with candy and soda, and Antonio Petralia will sell it to you. At its genesis, we never meant for it to become anything. One night, my friends and I had...

For as long as I can remember, I have done extremely well in and been very fascinated by my science classes. In biology, I had the reputation for doing the most meticulous dissections—I loved to see real-life examples of what we were studying, how the different organs and organ systems all worked together in the body. In chemistry, I enjoy our lab experiments most of all, and I take extreme care in both performing the experiments and writing the...

NARRATIVE ONE Describe your patient care experiences and the value of each in your decision to study medicine. Do not attach a personal resume or global personal statement or essay.

Originally, I became interested in SMU through my college counselor. She told me about the beautiful campus and strong academics (especially Dedman’s pre-health program), and she highly encouraged me to visit. My parents and I had already seen nearly a dozen universities, but after SMU, we were all thinking the same thing: “Wow.” A biomedical research major is one I know will help me on my path to medical school, and your small classes will allow me to interact...

Who am I? I am the guy who started the Locker, the volunteer always asking the nurses if he can do more, the physics student determined to build a Ruben’s tube, and the theology student seeking the doctrine's rationale. I am one of the fiercest co-captains the intramural soccer program has ever known, the lifeguard who feels a pinch of guilt when yelling at kids, and the last 15-18 boy on my swim team. But among my varied interests,...

Twelve years ago, swimming started as an athletic and social outlet. However, each summer I came to love the sport more. My focus began to shift, incorporating not only enjoyment but also pushing myself to be the best I could be. I took pride in my achievements and became one of the best butterfly swimmers on the entire team. However, to me, the real beauty of swimming is that is it a sport of pure cooperation. Races, although technically against...
