"I wanted a graduate experience that was more tight-knit, and I would be able to develop close relationships with peers but also potential mentors. Beyond the class and faculty size, the central location of the University ultimately led me to my decision to attend UC. Knowing that there was close access to multiple high-level medical institutions, I knew this could potentially open many doors for me both in the clinical realm of dietetics but also the research world as well."
