Why I chose Pitt

Pitt offered everything I was looking for in a graduate school.  It lives up to its reputation as a top-tier research institution with its excellent faculty and facilities.  It also fosters strongly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment.  Finally, Pittsburgh as a city is a fun and vivacious place to live and work.
