“Because I attended Notre Dame as an undergraduate and then worked at the University for some time I was quite familiar with Notre Dame, its mission, and its opportunities. But, that is why I wanted to attend Notre Dame for law school. I wanted to study with incredibly bright and driven students, but I knew the environment would not be cut-throat and stressful. I wanted a holistic education- one focusing on morals and ethics and not just on the black letter law. I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself and my classmates- something that would last for the rest of my life. I am happy to say I am not disappointed. The faculty is top notch, accessible, and incredibly eager to teach. My classmates push and challenge me to improve myself as we become better friends. This is more than just a place where I go to school, but I belong to something here, and I look forward to being a part of the Notre Dame Family for the rest of my life.”
