I was drawn to USC Gould School of Law in part because of its location and the reverence it receives around the region. USC Gould has always been a major player in the Southern California legal community and having attended USC as an undergrad, I was well aware of the resources that the university has to offer and wanted to be able to tap into them. With such small class sizes, USC Gould enables students to take advantage of individualized attention from professors, teaching assistants, and counselors. Additionally, the Career Services Office and Academic Support programs foster an environment where students can thrive academically while simultaneously carving out career paths for themselves. USC Law has helped develop my ability to analyze situations and "think like a lawyer."
