The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, BS in Economics, BlackRock, Inc, Portfolio Analytics Group, June 2010
“I made the decision to seek out a place where I would always be surrounded by intelligent minds who would push me to be better and learn more. My family and I had visited a few other institutions before finding LWA. LWA had a sophisticated and competent atmosphere that other schools simply could not match. When I met and talked with some of the bright students and passionate teachers, it became clear that this was the perfect fit.”

Morgan Stanley, Investment Banking Division, Healthcare Group, June 2010
“One of my favorite things about LWA is its diversity. I didn’t appreciate until I graduated how rare it is to be in an environment where such a wide variety of cultures are not only represented, but are constantly interacting. I learned so much just by being around my classmates from different backgrounds.
LWA prepared me not to fade into the background in college. It can be daunting to raise your hand in a college classroom, and it is all too easy to coast through lectures without ever speaking. The small class size at LWA both conditioned me to constantly participate in class and fostered class discussions that I now realize are very much like those I encounter in my college seminars.”
