I'd like to express to you my admiration for your graduate program. My interactions with your students left a very positive impression. I found your students extremely well prepared, eager to discuss the issues, and very well informed. I have seldom had such incisive and rigorous questioning from an audience. I have long been of the opinion that the best graduate programs are those that foster a strong sense of community, where students feel empowered and involved. … I certainly got the feeling that your students consider themselves to be important members of an active and supportive intellectual community.
