His Own Words
"The thing that caught my eye about William & Mary was the congenial atmosphere. I had heard stories from friends at other law schools detailing experiences with ultra-competitive students looking for an edge at the expense of others. However, here it seemed as if everyone genuinely wanted you to succeed, students and faculty alike. I am very happy with my choice to attend William & Mary Law School because of the positivity of those around me."
