Ross, a Mills graduate student

“I chose Mills because of its success in preparing post-bac students for medical school. What I didn’t expect was to get communication skills that will help me immensely as I advance in the professional world.”

“I’d like to push this country toward greater equality, and especially feel a deep desire to help LGBTQ+ youth who don’t have as much support and access to information as I do.”
