Certifications, accreditations and awards


Because of my GPA from Spring 2014 and Fall 2014, I was one of the top hundred students at Pace University's New York City campus.


Every semester at Pace, from Fall 2013 to Fall 2015, I have been named to the Dean's List for First Honors, meaning that I had at least a 3.85 GPA as a full-time student.
