Her Own Words

"If I were going through the process now I would pick William & Mary again in a heartbeat. Williamsburg is an ideal place to go to law school - plenty to do when you are looking for a break but not enough going on to be distracting. The small town also enhances the close community, the best part of this school. The people who come here are genuinely friendly, smart, supportive, and fun. These people made my law school experience more enjoyable than I ever would have imagined."
