How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Evergreen gave me an invaluable, solid foundation in the sciences and helped me develop strong critical thinking skills. Having attended another university prior to Evergreen, I can comparatively say that Evergreen's science programs were far above the quality of education I had recieved at the other school. Evergreen's Matter and Motion, organic chemistry, and other classes not only gave me a solid educational footing in science going into chiropractic college, but the rigor of my Evergreen classes also prepared me for the intensity of my doctoral studies. The critical thinking skills I began to develop at Evergreen also help me on a daily basis in clinical diagnosis. I can't emphasize enough what a fantastic education is available at Evergreen for those who take advantage of it.
