As someone who went to a large public university, I knew that I wanted a more intimate learning environment with greater access to professors and career services. This is exactly what I have found at USC Gould. The professors and students are so open, caring and always willing to help. As a small community, it’s easy to get involved. I am now the auction chair for the Public Interest Law Foundation as well as a mentor for the Women’s Law Association. It’s funny because people think lawyers are set in their ways, but learning how to “think like a lawyer” has allowed me to see more sides to every story, something that was difficult for me before. I have learned to appreciate that most things in life come in shades of gray rather than black or white.
