What I love about McIntire: The people. From the faculty and staff to the students, there’s a really good energy that fills the space.

One piece of application advice: Your application should represent you. Along with that, those writing your recommendations should be people who know your strengths and interests so that they can present you well. Build quality relationships with your undergraduate faculty and job/internship supervisors. Their words of support can give your application an extra boost!

A fun fact about me: I visited five different countries around the world before ever visiting the West Coast.
