I picked Penn State Law because out of the schools that I applied to, Penn State Law gave me the special attention that I did not find anywhere else. Once I expressed my interests, the Admissions Office immediately put me in touch with professors in my fields of interest. The welcoming environment and the knowledge that you will have a good support system really made we want to come here. I've been at Penn State Law for more than a year and my expectations have always been met, if not exceeded.
I chose Penn State Law because of the sense of community and the opportunities for financial aid. Penn State Law offered me a competitive scholarship, and I really liked that the students here are very supportive of each other.
I decided to come to Penn State Law because I enjoyed the people, the atmosphere, and the location. Most of all, I tend to go with my gut, and my gut told me to go with Penn State Law.
Having obtained my undergraduate degree at a small private school, Penn State Law's small class size was a major factor in my decision. Additionally, Penn State offers several courses related to criminal law, and a range of clinics that offer hands-on experience.
Prior to Penn State Law, I had always lived in Southern California. I was excited for the opportunity to live on the other side of the country and experience seasons. Aside from the beautiful location, I visited Penn State Law my senior year as an undergrad and I knew it was the right place; the students and faculty were very helpful and friendly.
I chose to attend Penn State Law primarily for its joint-degree programs, as I am currently a J.D./Ph.D. student in Higher Education. The amount of opportunities to engage and participate with the rest of the university was particularly attractive. I am able to join student groups, talk to faculty members, take classes, and engage in research "across the street" on main campus. There are plenty of ways to foster and support your specific legal interests both within Penn State Law and the Penn State community at large.
