Humans of UCSF: Jorge Ortiz-Carpena and Francesca Aloisio

Columnist
Graduate Division

"We're in the process of planning recruitment, and it's reminding me a lot of last year--this was me interviewing at schools, deciding where I'd end up, getting really nervous about that. And I can look back now, a year later, and know that I definitely made the right decision. I love UCSF, especially the friends I've made here, like Jorge."

"UCSF was my number one top choice for graduate school, and just coming here and seeing the breadth and excellence of the students and faculty has been a blessing. It's been hard--grad school is tough--but I just love it here. Definitely people like Francesca have made the transition a lot easier."
