So the most common question that I get asked as a graduating senior is, “So what’s after graduation?” or “Where are you gonna be after you cross the stage?” or even, “Hey, when are you going to become a doctor?” or any variation of these questions come up quite frequently. For any senior, this can get annoying to the point where you just start saying the first thing that comes to mind just to see their reaction. Luckily, DePaul has been extremely helpful in my search for a next step!
