"I chose Penn State for many reasons, the main one being the incredible amount of hands on work available to the graduate students. In addition to the numerous resources available to you as a graduate student, the professors are great resources of knowledge concerning topics relevant and current in the field. They come from many different backgrounds and can help you advance in your career path, whatever it may be. I feel 100% confident in my abilities to work as a DNA analyst, because the program has challenged me to understand the theory and concepts behind my desired work int he forensic science field."
