Graduation Year: 2023
Hometown: Baku, Former Soviet Republic Azerbaijan
Hi! My name is Vee Bustos. I graduated from the Boise State University with a B.A. in Criminal Justice. After graduating, I worked for the State Government Agencies for almost 7 years. I am a non-traditional law student, not only because I took a significant break between the undergrad and Law School, but also because I am a first-generation immigrant college graduate in my family. When I am not at school, I like to spend time with my 7-year-old daughter, kayak, and swim.
What advice would you offer to incoming 1L Law Students?
One of the most important pieces of law school advice is to recognize that it is a lot different from your undergrad experience. Taking good notes during class is important, listening to your professors and know what they are looking for on a final is even more important. Do your best to not fall behind and glance over the basic concepts. Early material will set the foundation for the later material, so don’t assume it will be easy to catch up later!
