What students have said about prior events:
“The Virtual Fair was extremely convenient and useful. I was able to communicate with multiple schools of my interest and ask questions. This Virtual Fair also saved me time and traveling fees if I were to visit the schools’ campuses instead.”
“I thought the virtual fair was extremely helpful. Chatting with the school representatives helped give me some direction for what I’d like to pursue, as well as some helpful tips/expectations for the application process.”
“I feel that this was great concept…It gave me an opportunity to ask questions that may not have been answered on their website and to see other potential students’ questions that I may not have thought to ask.”
“It was perfect. I loved the fact that school representatives gave out their e-mail addresses and encouraged us to contact them.”
“The whole system was very user friendly.”

Chemist and filmmaker Valerie Weiss, PhD will be on the Medical Campus Thursday, April 5, from 2-3 p.m. in room L-112, BUSM Instructional Building, to talk about her film, Losing Control. She will discuss how she transitioned from a successful career in science to filmmaking. All students, faculty and staff are invited to this seminar. Dr. Weiss will show the film trailer and several clips from the film.
Losing Control, her first feature film, is a romantic comedy based on her experience in a Harvard University lab, filmed in Cambridge and Boston. It is being shown at the Kendall Square Cinema this Friday, April 6. She will be available at the screening for Q&A.
So take a break from studying or work, learn how she transitioned from science to film; how being a scientist prepared her well for her career as a filmmaker, a career in which she wears many hats, entrepreneur, creator, fundraiser, manager, promoter; and why she thinks science is a great springboard to many careers.
There is more information about the film at http://coveringmedia.com/movie/2012/03/losing-control.html
