Why did you choose UB School of Law? I chose to attend UB because it provides academic excellence at an affordable price. I had also been told by current and prior students that the School of Law provided a unique support system of faculty and peers that was distinct from other law schools; I wanted to be in an environment where everyone encourages each other to do well rather than partaking in cutthroat competition. Furthermore, the School of Law is well connected with the Buffalo community, providing students with an extensive alumni network which facilitates students in their job search and in gaining real life experience through student internships.
