Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt for two reasons, first its strong quantitative component that would give me the skills to evaluate and measure the impact of policy projects, and second, the school's holistic approach to policymaking, which includes politics, strategy, evidence and data. It doesn't hurt it's in DC where everything happens!
What was the best part of your experience? Starting school online and in the middle of a pandemic is not easy. So what I've loved the most is the people, both students and professors have been supportive and encouraging and we have built a strong community.
