"After the interview weekend, it was obvious Palo Alto University (PAU) was the best fit for my training goals. PAU was ultimately my school of choice because of the university’s dedication to diversity studies, opportunities for clinical practice with monolingual Spanish speakers, and because of the faculty who are groundbreaking researchers within the diversity literature. I also very much appreciated the flexible educational and training opportunities within the Ph.D. program curriculum as it allowed me to tailor my education."
