In March, Alex Tejada received a blue envelope in the mail. The letter inside would determine the direction of his life. Tejada was accepted to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Getting to this point required determination and hard work. Tejada graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with Physical Sciences and Life and Biomedical Sciences as his areas of study, and music as his minor. Alex shared that his IDS degree made him a more well-rounded applicant. He also credits Pre-Health and Pre-Law Advising with helping him through the complex applications process, including his personal statement. Read “Accepted! IDS Grad Gets Greenlight for Med School” in Catalyst magazine to learn more about Tejada.
