Why did you choose UB School of Law?: I chose UB law because of the proximity to home, the externship opportunities, and all of the amazing programs that exist within this institution for an extremely cost efficient investment.

One piece of advice for accepted students: Stay organized! Plan your schedule a week in advance not only academically, but also mentally. By mentally, I mean save some hours in your week for the things you love to rest your mind. . . plan out when you are going to exercise, spend time with friends, and just relax.
One fun fact about yourself: I am a published poet! My pieces are featured in various national literary magazines and journals; I even published my own seasonal chapbook titled the “morse code project” and donated all of the proceeds to women-led organizations and charities promoting women’s rights.
