Why have you chosen McCourt? I chose McCourt for many reasons: Georgetown name recognition, location/career opportunities, alumni network, and adjunct professors. I also chose McCourt over SFS because I felt that an in depth focus on the practical skills, including quantitative analysis and memo writing, would serve me better in my chosen career path.
What's the best part of your experience so far? There are a lot of great things I’ve experienced at McCourt, but the one that stands out to me the most is my elective class, Capacity Building and Counterterrorism. Not only is the class extremely interesting just based on the content, but our adjunct professor, John Gossart, is amazing and affirms my decision to go to McCourt in part for the adjunct professors. He is so accomplished and also has great insight into and actual experience with the class materials. Just hearing him go on only slightly related tangents while lecturing is fascinating. He’s also hilarious and actively tries to get a rise out of people during class, which leads to incredible class discussions.
Undergraduate Degree and University: Bachelor of Arts, Political Science. Davidson College.
