"Getting accepted into this programme was the icing on the cake for me. It took everything I had hoped I would get out of undergrad and kicked it up a notch. A great education is one of the most powerful tools to have at your disposal and when I'm finished here I hope that I get the opportunity to pass on all that I've learned and experienced so that others may benefit as well." - M Wang
