His Own Words

"My favorite part about William & Mary is the people. From the moment I arrived on campus, every person I met was friendly, helpful, and kind. Any preconceptions I had about law school as intimidating went right out the window. My professors were interesting and engaging. The deans and administrators were attentive and involved. The students came from all over the country, but when they arrived at W&M they seemed to all take up the unique, open attitude of the school."
