Undergraduate institution: Boston College, Class of 2015; Henry J. McMahon Award recipient; Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship finalist

Favorite class: Legal Reasoning, Research & Writing with Mary Ann Chirba. It is a great experience of learning to write memos, which is very critical to the law profession.
What do you hope to do after graduation? I hope to work at a law firm with a focus on corporate law.
Why law school? Why not? It was the one thing that clicked for me, the one field that grabbed my interest more than anything else. It always left me with a desire to want to pursue more.
Why BC Law? It was the model law school as my passion for law developed in undergrad. The more I solidified my love of law, the most my desire to go to BC Law grew.
What most surprised you about BC Law when you got here? The overall openness and willingness to help from other students.

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!
