PILOT Student Testimonials

More Than Just Academics

“My PILOT leader genuinely cared. He was there for any medical or emotional problems we had, helped us to understand academic deficits when in trouble, and let us go through problems and concepts at our own pace. He made sure that at the end of the day, we were all learning the material.”

Sharing Highs and Lows

“My PILOT leader always started by asking everyone to share their “highs” and “lows” for the week. Through that process, the group got to know a little bit more about each other and also empathize with each other when multiple people were having bad weeks due to exams or work.”

Leaders Are Relatable

“My PILOT leader often told us stories about her freshman year and classes, which made her very relatable. She talked about her experience applying to med schools and her current feelings too. It was a good insight for the future.”

Succeeding in Organic Chemistry

“I entered PILOT confused about organic chemistry, and I left prepared to ace whatever comes my way. My PILOT leader was excellent. He helped me succeed in the course. His knowledge of organic chemistry is excellent, and he created a very good environment for learning in our PILOT sessions.”

Making Topics Relevant

“My PILOT leader tied in relevant topics to help us understand. We often had very interesting conversations about the real world and how macroeconomics might apply to it.”
