I chose Pitt over other schools for the exceptional faculty at Katz and for the flexibility and freedom it provides. The faculty, who are world-class researchers, genuinely care for my growth and are always open to discuss and collaborate on new research ideas.

I have felt supported and appropriately challenged throughout my entire time at Pitt. I love Katz because of the people. The faculty, staff, and students all support each other and genuinely want each other to succeed.
