N. Quindlen

My name is Natalie Quindlen and I am currently finishing my senior year of high school at GCIT.  While attending GCIT, I was able to take a number of college level high school classes that also counted for college credits at GCC.  In addition, I requested early release from my high school so that I could take multiple other college courses in the afternoons and evenings during the school year.  I have also taken college courses during the summers before my junior and senior years.  When I graduate high school, I will have earned a total of 77 college credits with a 4.0 average.  As a result, I am able to start college as a junior which will save me a ton of time and money!
In the fall, I will be attending the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.  Since USciences has accepted all of my GCC credits, I will be able to start as a junior in their 6 year Doctor of Occupational Therapy program.  This means I will only have to attend for another 4 years and I will have earned my doctorate degree!  Taking classes at GCC has really helped me jump-start my career!  I am very grateful to have had this opportunity!
