"I chose UB School of Law because of the high value of education you receive for a reasonable cost compared to other law schools in New York."

Hometown: Watkins Glen, NY

Undergraduate:  University at Buffalo

Major:  Political Science

Legal Interests: Criminal Law

Activities:  Buffalo Public Interest Law Program, Buffalo Sports and Entertainment Law Society

Fun Fact: My favorite hobbies are baking and traveling.

Advice for new law students: Don’t be afraid to go to networking events. The lawyers and judges who attend the events are not there to intimidate you, but to help you in your schooling and career in any way that they can.

Why UB School of Law: I went to the University at Buffalo for my undergraduate degree and had a wonderful experience. I instantly felt at home in the Buffalo area. It is culturally diverse, experiencing a period of growth, and yet the community is very close and connected.  When it came time to apply to law schools, I knew that I wanted to stay in Buffalo for law school and the beginning of my career. I also chose UB School of Law because of the high value of education you receive for a reasonable cost compared to other law schools in New York.
