And Willis is just as happy with the way the program is unfolding. “It’s incredibly helpful to have direction when you have a goal but aren’t exactly sure how to reach it, or even if that direction is the right one,” Willis says.

Willis is among a select group. The Admissions Committee reviewed hundreds of qualified applicants for the Levy Scholars Program, which includes only 15 students. Derek Meeker, Associate Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid, says the Committee based its decisions on several factors: academic record, LSAT score, rigor of the undergraduate curriculum, and evidence of cross-disciplinary study or interest in an area, such as bioethics or business and economics, in which the University excels.

He says the overarching goal of the program is to groom leaders in disparate fields. As a budding academic, Heather McCann fits that profile. She graduated from Cornell with a bachelor of arts in biology and society and got a Masters of Arts in Teaching, after which she spent three years as a Life Science teacher in a public school system in New Jersey. Now, she wants to pursue a joint degree in law and bioethics.

Through the Levy Scholars Program, doors are opening for McCann, who, thanks to mentor Professor Feldman, has talked to the director of the bioethics program at the School of Medicine. She’s also met a partner at a Philadelphia law firm who shares her interest in bioethics.
