Question of the Week: I Didn't Get an Internship... Now What?

Friday, Jan 18, 2019

I applied to PICS and IIP but wasn’t accepted. I’m worried that there aren’t any summer options left. What should I do?

We’d first like to refer you to an excellent article written by prehealth student Nanako Shirai for the Princeton OUR blog: What To Do When You’re Rejected From Both PICS and IIP. Her advice is excellent: expand your scope (she provides many helpful links) and don’t get overwhelmed. We can help you brainstorm as well if you come by during drop-in hours or make an appointment. For some specific examples of prehealth students’ summer experiences beyond PICS and IIP, check out the HPA Summer Spotlights.
