One piece of advice for accepted students: Be open to saying yes to all the opportunities that are posted by the faculty, staff, and student groups! Law school is hard already, so it’s in your best interest to make friends with upperclassmen and learn from their mistakes. However, know when you are over-extending yourself and make sure you take the time to ground yourself and study.
One fun fact about yourself: I know how to play the alto saxophone and I started when I was around 9 years old. I was in band up until my senior year of high school and can play along to sheet music.
