Meet the Ambassador: Nick Rausa

Name: Nick Rausaunnamed

Year: 1L (Class of 2018)

Undergraduate institution: United States Naval Academy, Class of 2009

Experience between college and law school: Nuclear submarine officer (San Diego, CA)

Activities at BC Law (besides being an Ambassador):
  • Student Veterans Association
  • Public Interest Retreat
  • Intellectual Property and Technology Forum

Favorite class: Contracts with Professor Rogers. It is like learning a new, very precise language that is used in so many aspects of our lives. The use and placement of one or two words can have huge qualitative and monetary implications in people’s lives.

What will you do after graduation? I will be going back to the Navy as a member of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps.

Why law school? I really value my experiences in the Navy, and I was particularly interested in becoming a JAG because it will allow me to serve and provide assistance for the people that make it such a great organization.

Why BC Law? When I visited, I realized all of the stories and rumors are true – the students are really happy here and people are excited about being at BC.

What most surprised you about BC Law when you got here? How much of a community it is here. Everyone, from the students to the faculty and staff, genuinely wants to get to know you and are always willing to help.

Boston College Law Ambassadors is a newly launched program designed to enhance the on-campus experience for every prospective student who visits BC Law. The Ambassadors are thirty students who lead campus tours, help out at Admitted Students Day, and serve as a resource for applicants and admitted students who are considering enrolling at BC Law.

In support of this role, each Ambassador will be profiled on the Impact blog over the course of the school year. If you are a prospective student and notice something about any of our Ambassadors that you’d like to discuss with him or her – whether it’s a shared alma mater, an interesting extracurricular, or an appealing summer job – do not hesitate to reach out. After all, that’s what we’re here for!
