How did you first become interested in law school?
Law school was a great way to apply the research, writing, and critical thinking skills I developed in undergrad to help people navigate the legal system.
Why did you choose Chicago-Kent?
I knew I wanted to go to school in Chicago, and when I visited, I really liked the friendly people and professional facility. When it came down to it, those factors combined with financial considerations made Kent the right choice for me.
What do you think prepared you best for law school?
Studying hard in undergrad.
What have you enjoyed most about your Chicago-Kent experience?
I've been able to help self-represented litigants at the courthouse through Kent's Self-Help Web Center, which has been fun and educational.
What advice would you give to someone considering law school?
Be prepared to do a lot of hard work, but don't neglect your social life.
What do you like most about Chicago?
There's so much to do. When you find yourself with free time, you can always find something to fill it with.
Where do you plan to practice after graduation?
