Why did you choose UB School of Law?: I am a Canadian student who wanted global experience and UB is 20 minutes from my home. When I came for my student visit I felt an amazing sense of community. There are great study spaces and wonderful resources, I knew I would feel at home here!

One piece of advice for accepted students: You did it! This is law school, try to embrace all the moments that are happening around you. Enjoy your time on campus and study hard. Be grateful – you are experiencing 3 years you can’t do over, try not to sweat the small stuff. Remember that these classes aren’t your whole life… you will get a job at the end of this and you are going to end up where you are meant to. Have fun, you’ve got this!
