Fun fact: In my youth, I was an exchange student in Honduras, and I would often visit a remote Caribbean Island.

Why did you choose UB School of Law? I choose UB School of Law because of four main factors: location; my familiarity with the institution after completing my MA here; finding the environment to be in line with my personal ideals and convictions; that I could apply with my GRE scores.

One piece of advice for accepted students: Law school is a user-initiated environment. You must have self-discipline and proactively prepare yourself to be successful. In other words, meet all of your requirements by problem solving and / or asking questions with enough time to get stuff done. It falls on you to get stuff done.
