"The sense of community that I felt when I visited the school made my decision very easy. I knew that UB would provide the community and support that I wanted for law school."

One fun fact: I was an Irish dancer for 13 years.

Why I chose UB: I knew I wanted to be close to home for law school, so I visited UB. The sense of community that I felt when I visited the school made my decision very easy. I knew that UB would provide the community and support that I wanted for law school.

One piece of advice:  Law school is a lot of work, so it is important to find balance. You should find an outlet that helps you decompress during the semester.
