Why Melanie chose Tippie: I chose Tippie for many reasons, including the placement statistics and the tremendous value, but mostly as I learned more about the program, both remotely and through my campus visit, I became convinced that at Tippie I was going to be surrounded by people (faculty, staff, and students) that were really going to help me become the business leader I want to be. Is that a cheesy answer? Probably a little, but it’s true.
Something Unique About Melanie: This may not be a complete surprise, since I did major in Geography as an undergrad, but I love to look at maps and atlases — so much so that I used to get teased by my roommates because I would fall asleep poring over maps and wake up the next morning with maps in bed with me.
