His Own Words

"William & Mary was absolutely the right choice for me, and I would make the exact same decision over again. The unique experiences I have had working with faculty members and in the school's clinics made law school the most engaging academic experience of my life. Every professor I have taken a class with has had their students' interest at the front of their goals. Our student body's legacy of a collegiality made an enormous difference for me by removing unnecessary stress and giving me others to connect with. I have appreciated that both the student body and the faculty make William & Mary feel like a home, rather than just a school."
