Dali Davis

"At a lot of smaller schools, people don't get to participate in undergraduate research. And if you're at a bigger school, you don't necessarily get to have your own. At UWG, I was able to have my own project; that experience made me really competitive and helped me apply to top-tier graduate schools."
