Your completed I.S. gives employers tangible proof of your resourcefulness, creativity, and communication skills.
“I.S. helped me land my dream job,” says Rahim Bhayani (2001), a senior consultant with Ernst & Young LLP. “You’re up against all these people from Harvard, Cornell, these Ivy League schools, and — surprisingly — not a lot of them have done this kind of research.”
I.S. also marks you as an independent scholar, ready to take on graduate-level research wherever your interests lead: one reason Wooster ranks 18th among all liberal arts colleges for the number of graduates who have gone on to earn a Ph.D. in the past 40 years.
Just ask Phil Verhoef (1997), who completed a dual M.D./Ph.D. program at Case Western Reserve University, before accepting a residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at UCLA Medical Center. “I.S. teaches you how to attack a problem, search the literature, and distill what you need from the vast amount of information out there,” he says. “I was very well prepared by the I.S. experience.”
