Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt because the MS-DSPP program is very unique in providing both knowledge in public policy and data science. This combination will help to build a niche for my skillset. In addition, McCourt has a great community for both academics and personal development. I can learn a lot from just talking with my fellow students and professors.
What was the best part of your experience? My courses in data science and statistics this semester gave me a better understanding on how data analytics could be integrated into social science. Moreover, I enjoyed attending webinars held by McCourt and Georgetown in general. They have presented research frontiers and are very helpful to shape my policy interests.
