Fun fact: I love to travel! I once worked as a clown in Poland for a month over the summer.

Why did you choose UB School of Law? I chose UB School of Law for a few reasons. First, growing up in Buffalo I always heard about how great UB is and I knew the law program provided an incredible education for a great price. Second, when I came to visit during an accepted students day, as soon as I walked through the doors I felt like I was at home. I was nervous about going from a small college to a big university, but everyone was very welcoming and made me feel like I belonged. 

One piece of advice for accepted students: Believe in yourself, you made it! Law school can be challenging, it is important to try and keep up on the work and seek help when you need it. You are a member of the UB Law Family now, and we are all here to support you.
