His Own Words
"I loved the three years that I spent at William & Mary personally, academically, and professionally. From the day of arrival, my classmates were friendly, supportive, optimistic, and fun, while impressing me with their unique backgrounds, intelligence, and determination. My professors were excellent teachers and made a point to establish personal relationships with students that extended beyond the classroom. I also had the help of the career services office to thank for summer employment, externships, and the beginning of a great legal career after graduation. The community environment at William & Mary and in Williamsburg was outstanding, and I would undoubetdly make the same decision to enroll at W&M again if I could."
