Linda, 18, advises high school students to "look carefully at the programs that each university offers and select the university that best fits your personal needs." The graduate of Sir Winston Churchill High School in Calgary, whose family recently moved to Toronto, is taking courses in biology, chemistry, calculus, physics, psychology, and economics in her first year and is considering a specialist program in biochemistry, with a possible major or minor in psychology. In her spare time Linda likes to read, play piano, and swim. Linda, who placed fifth in the 1999 biology competition, identifies time management as a key skill to best maximize success in school: "Don't leave things until the last minute, and stay focused with clear goals in mind."
