Why did you choose Vanderbilt? After attending a free two day Analytics Intensive by Dr. Jesse Spencer-Smith, I loved the event and asked if there were more of the same. I inquired if they had a program and boom! Here I am. I can’t wait to begin this journey. Vanderbilt is among the best universities in the country. I am so thrilled to be a Vanderbilt student.
