Aortic valve is a trileaflet valve, with each leaflet in the shape of a cusp 3. The left ventricle is stronger, as it pumps blood to the entire body (high resistance requires alot of force) 4. Aortic and mitral valves have coordinated opening and closing to allow blood to be pumped

AccuSentry, Inc. The best part about the BS/MS program is that I was able to take a &quot;test drive&quot; before committing.  By the time I officially became a graduate student, I had performed undergrad research with my advisor for almost a year- and-a-half.  The main reasons I opted to do the BS/MS Program at Georgia Tech were as follows: The application was easy; I did not have to take the GRE; instead of paying for school, school paid me (GRA); I was able to take graduate classes and do research ahead of time; Georgia Tech was familiar to me; and there would never be an &quot;easier&quot; opportunity to obtain a master's degree.
