One piece of advice for accepted students: Don't worry about what everyone else is doing - you need to focus on what you need to do to be successful. Everyone learns at a different pace and in a different way and it is okay if what you're doing isn't matching up exactly with what your classmates are doing. Comparison is the thief of joy.

Law School activities: Buffalo Law Review, Student Ambassador Program, and Buffalo Environmental Law Journal.

Fun fact: I love musicals!

Why did you choose UB School of Law?: I came to UB for my undergraduate degree and I had a great experience I love Buffalo and want to stay in this area after graduating. UB was the best fit for me to be able to do that!
