Thats cool. I hope you get in next cycle in which you apply.
PS: Did you actually apply to Pitt or just got a fee waiver?
I'm still debating whether or not I want to spend more time and money on an additional degree, but thank you nonetheless for your comment. As for Pitt, I received a fee waiver but chose not to apply. I met a Pitt grad the other day at my internship who was doing extremely nicely for himself doing IP and with Pitt rapidly becoming a great city to live in, I can't say the thought of applying didn't cross my mind.
In any case, good luck with your cycle!
