    -Primates

    We cannot guarantee that you will be placed in your top choice sections, but we will do our best.
  • This will not affect your application, but if you are accepted, will be considered when placing you in your shadowing location.
  • Please answer the following questions as honestly and thoroughly as possible. We want you to show your true self.
