Advice for new law students: Once you're in school, remember why you're here. Law school isn't as difficult as it is time-consuming. Make sure that you dedicate yourself to school, but allow some personal time to do the things that make you happy. It may be overwhelming at first, but the professors truly care and will help you to push through if you take the time to speak with them.
Why UB School of Law? Being the only law school in the region, I chose the school to be with family while working toward my future goals. Upon attending the accepted students visit, I discovered that the atmosphere at UB was above and beyond what I had expected at a law school. The professors that I encountered seemed to have a genuine interest in the students. Soon into my first semester, I discovered the validity of my assumptions. There are professors and staff that go above and beyond to invest themselves into the success of the students. Regardless of whether or not you are in their classes, professors go out of their way for the students and connect on genuine, personal level.
