Why I chose Fletcher: I was looking for a graduate school that offered a rigorous academic training in international relations. The academic excellence of Fletcher as well as the well-balanced combination of theories and practices in its interdisciplinary curriculum attracted me very much. I believe the education at Fletcher will equip me with a sturdy intellectual foundation in understanding global issues today and in the future.

Something that has surprised me about Fletcher: We had a number of study groups that were voluntarily organized among ourselves. The students were willing to help each other and eager to learn from each other both inside and outside the classroom. In the spirit of cooperation, there is a strong sense of community at Fletcher.
