Arman thrives at debate, as this year he not only qualified for the Tournament of Champions but also reached the semifinals of the Stanford National Debate Invitational. He also served as captain and lieutenant of his high school’s parliamentary debate team. In addition, he’s passionate about science and music, playing everything from piano and violin to guitar and bass. At Drew, he’s entering the BA/MD program and hopes to minor in music, economics or both. “I really want to get a broad education,” he said.
“It’s because of the smaller class size, which will allow for a more individualized education and a better chance for me to get to know my peers, and because I was admitted into the seven-year BA/MD program.”
In high school, Margaret thrived in Spanish and English, earning the Marian Campbell Writing Award in her first year and becoming editor of the school’s literary magazine, Ephemera.

“I chose Drew because I felt like I could truly belong there—like the people I came in contact with when I visited immediately welcomed me and cared about me as more than just someone who was going to pay tuition.”
