At the moment, I'm nearing the end of my undergraduate studies at Boston University, with plans to attend the Northeastern University School of Law this fall. During my time at BU, I was able to take a diverse set of courses due to the stark difference between my major and minor (Psychology and Business Administration), and the flexibility my prior credits gave me to take several electives. As I reflect on the skills and experiences these courses have given me, one that stood out most was research. I have chosen to create a simple platform in which I've compiled research papers I've written to serve as a supplement to my résumé, so that my claims about my academic experience can be evaluated or verified by my actual work.
