Q: Why did you choose Washington University?
A:  I chose Washington University because of its national reputation and dedication to public interest law.

Q: Which Law School activity or experience has/had the most meaning for you so far?
A:  My classes have been really meaningful to me.  The assigned first year classes originally seemed to be in very different, unrelated fields.  However, as the semester has gone on, applying lessons from one class to another has helped me to learn more than I ever could otherwise.

Q: What is it like living in St. Louis?
A: St. Louis is a great place to live.  It’s easy to find affordable housing that is close to campus and hotspots at the same time.  I have really enjoyed it so far.

Q. What are your impressions of the law school community?
A: The entire law school community has been incredibly helpful.  Every time I’ve had a question or wanted to learn more about something, the faculty, administrators and my fellow students have been willing and enthusiastic to lead me in the right direction.
