Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt because I was interested in deepening my quantitative analytical abilities. I wanted to ensure that data and evidence would be at the foundation of any work I pursued.
What was the best part of your experience? I particularly enjoyed learning from McCourt's adjunct faculty. As a working professional pursuing my degree part-time, I appreciated their focusing on the practical application of theory we would learn in the classroom.
What internships did you have during your time at McCourt? Because I was a part-time student working full-time during my time at McCourt, I was unable to actively participate in any student organizations.
Student organization involvement while at McCourt: While attending McCourt, I worked full-time. When I began, I was a Senate staffer working on defense, veteran and immigration issues. About mid-way through my experience, I left the Senate to join the Government Accountability Office (GAO) where I became an analyst examining our government’s management systems, especially any best practices that should be replicated across government.
Undergraduate university, degree, and major: Bowling Green State University, BA in Political Science
