What topics can students ask you about? Pre-med classes/strategies, resume writing, finding internships, writing scientific papers, balancing course loads

What advice would you give to a first-year, prehealth, student athlete? It goes against what most people will tell you at Princeton but I would say that you should sit down and basically decide what major/minor(s) you want to go into early into your career at Princeton. It becomes very hard to switch over and complete all the necessary classes, even if you do it at the end of your freshman year. Also, try to create as many professional relationships as possible because these people could become those who write you letters of rec or speak highly of you to med school admissions committees.
