"Being a Statistical Science graduate from Duke provides me a large network -- not only the alumni from Duke, but also the ones from UNC-Chapel Hill and/or NCSU. All of us share the experience of living near the RTP (Research Triangle Park) in North Carolina."
"Diversify your experience. If you have multiple summers to intern, try to take on different internships rather than interning at the same place. A wider exposure provides more career options after graduation. Your interests and/or the job market may change, so it is better to build a diversified skillset."
