Why I chose Pitt

During the interview weekend, I felt an immediate connection because of the friendly faculty and students. I chose the University of Pittsburgh because of its wide range of research and collaborative environment. Also, the interdisciplinary program gave me an opportunity to work in diverse labs before choosing a specialty.
