Her Own Words
"At William & Mary, I found faculty and staff members with a genuine interest in my story and in my success. I found passionate students who look out for each other. I found healthy, friendly competition to keep me on my toes. I found a culture which upheld and respected ethics and morality, and I found a school which welcomed me with open arms and nudged me out of my comfort zone and into the study of law. If I could do it all over again, I would pick William & Mary Law School every time."
