Hometown: Boise, Idaho
Undergrad School: University of Idaho
Student Orgs: Idaho Law Review
I chose the U of I College of Law because I got my undergraduate degree at UI and they just could not get rid of me! I had a great undergraduate experience at UI and the cost of law school was significantly cheaper than other schools. It was a no brainer for me!
What advice would you offer to incoming 1Ls?
My advice would be to forget all your preconceived notions about law school. When I was an incoming 1L, I was terrified of all the horror stories I had seen in movies or had heard through the grapevine. Once I started, I quickly realized that law school was not the cutthroat contest I thought it would be. My peers and I genuinely support each other and that contributes to the feeling of comradery that is so prevalent at the U of I College of Law.
Favorite Boise/Moscow recommendation?
I would absolutely recommend going to the local farmer’s market in either Boise or Moscow. Both markets have amazing local artists, produce, and music!
