What impact has the degree had on your career?

It gave me access to a lot of job opportunities that I would not have otherwise, thanks to the alumni network.

What advice would you give to prospective applicants - those who are just beginning to explore graduate options at Duke?

Find something you care deeply about and work your job search and networking towards it, intern as much as you can and offer your 'services' for free just for the opportunity to work in the environment of your choosing.

What advice would you give to admitted students who are considering Duke?

Explore as much outside MEMP that Duke has to offer, take a piano class or art history as an audit.
