Smith is a great all-around program. The curriculum is challenging and on the cutting-edge, presented by very capable faculty. I chose the program because it offered a cohort for the first year, which I thought would be important for networking and community-building. From there, I enjoyed the flexibility to accelerate my coursework at my own speed.
