Why did you choose the University of Pittsburgh?
I chose Pitt because there are so many diverse labs to choose from, and I found the PMI program to be incredibly supportive, both the faculty and the other students. I also wanted to go to graduate school in a city where I could have access to numerous activities outside the lab, which Pittsburgh provides.
