The following is a list of my references, who each person is, what that person knows about me, and how each person can be reached.

Mr. Robert Bohnsack of M.T.U.

Being my Electrical Engineering Advisor, Mr. Bohnsack can attest to my academic record. This would include obtaining nearly an entire year's worth of class credits by placement tests. My record also shows my taking advantage of that year by spending my second year of schooling in Japan, taking international studies courses at the Japan Center for Michigan Universities. Mr. Bohnsack would also be an excellent person to have answer any questions about what my E.E. classes would translate to in the work world.
