"I chose the LBJ program for different reasons," said Fidel.  "First, It is one of the best schools in the US, with a good mix of local/international approach. Second, It has the best quality/price ratio. Third, I was a Fulbright fellow and at that time, they highly recommended to me that kind of program and the school. Many people in the US recommended the LBJ School to me. In addition to that, my University in Mendoza has an agreement with UT/Austin."
