Why have you chosen McCourt? My undergraduate experience lacked a focus on using quantitative methods for policy analysis.  McCourt's focus in this area is a strong complement to my undergraduate studies and a very useful skill in today's policy making environment. 
 
What's the best part of your experience so far? The level of support provided by my professors.  Starting at McCourt, the focus on quantitative methods was daunting for me. Classes are not designed to be easy. But, every time I had a problem or a question, my professors have been generous with their time to help me understand the concept I was confused about.
 
Undergraduate Degree and University:  Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.  BA in International Relations and History.
 

Hobbies / Interests: I volunteer at a local theater and also volunteer during tax season to help low income individuals file their tax returns for free and claim their EITC. My life gets a bit busy, so I work out all of the stress of being a part time student with a full time job with a bicycle commute in almost any weather.
