Prior to me coming here, I attended several information sessions. Those were very helpful as I got to learn the details of being in the Carlson program, as well as network with admissions staff and get to talk to them on a personal level and say, ‘I’m a single mom. How do I fit in? Can I still manage to come?’ They were very encouraging and supportive through all of that.
