12: 2.0 GPA to Harvard - Matthew Schaefer
My guest today is the Nationally Ranked Triathlete, Future Doctor, and World Traveler, Matthew Schaefer (@M_Schaefer777). Matthew recently graduated from LSU where he was the school mascot, and he just got accepted to Harvard School of Public Health, where he will be working on getting his Masters Degree in Environmental Health. He is taking the MCAT on June 30th so he can apply to the medical school, so I want to wish him the best of luck.
During our conversation, Matthew shared his amazing story of how he went from being one of the highest ranked Triathletes in the Nation, to having it all taken away when he was hit by a truck while training. We also talked about how his recovery from this accident inspired him to go into the medical field, his travels all over Asia and Europe, and his time as Mike the Tiger at LSU.
I can't wait to catch up with Matthew after he starts at Harvard, he will definitely have some more awesome stories for us.
