Why did you choose UB School of Law? I chose to come to come UB for law school due to my experiences with the community here when I was an undergraduate student. The culture at UB is like none other, and your peers and professors not only want you to succeed in whatever you choose to do, but they are also there to help you every step of the way.
Be open to trying new things, meeting new people, and going out of your comfort zone.

One piece of advice for accepted students: Be open to trying new things, meeting new people, and going out of your comfort zone. Law school is unlike any other educational experience you will have had, and with it comes a lot of new opportunities. Take those opportunities where you can, but also remember to give yourself grace and time to adapt.
One fun fact about yourself: I love cooking and baking, and even have my own blog that I run in my free time.
