Why Emory Law? In addition to the beautiful campus and reputa­tion of Emory Law, when I came to the admitted student days and met everyone already here, and the people who would become my peers, the sense of community won me over.

Fun fact: I grew my hair out and donated it to Locks of Love, as did my two sisters, my brother and my mother.

Application excerpt: It has taken some time and different experi­ences for me to get to this point, but I am confident that the skills I have developed thus far have come together in a way that will make me successful in law. I could tell you that I want to save the world or fight for truth, justice and the American way, but really I just want to employ the skills I love to maybe one day fight for the little guy who has no one else to fight for him, like an informed second grader who just wants to vote.
