“When getting into medical school seemed far out of sight, ASAP was there for me to empower my academic abilities and help me financially. Without a doubt, the most priceless contribution of all was from my ASAP Academic Advisor. Her undivided attention helped mark my path through college and guided me through every rigorous science course. She instructed and informed me on my science major and gave me the confidence I needed to continue in such an intense field. As a first-generation college student, I was doubtful about pursuing a medical career, but ASAP was there to open doors for me and contribute to my success. Join CUNY ASAP and start walking the path to your success.”
