I chose Washington because: The pre-med program is excellent and there are countless opportunities.
The best thing about Seattle is: It's close to the ocean and close to the mountains, yet it is a great city to live in.
The best thing about UW is: It is so big you can find yourself in a class of 300 students and not know a single person. There is always an opportunity to meet new people.
Favorite Class: Archaeology 205.
My best race was: Windermere Cup in 2002; In the last 500 meters, my second novice boat came from behind to beat Stanford's first novice boat.
After I graduate, I plan to: Go to Medical School.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: Be sure to keep your life beyond crew balanced - it is too easy to focus all your energy on rowing.
Dubbins says: "Washington rowing gives you the opportunity to do something absolutely extraordinary - so exceptional you may even surprise yourself."
