“What I like about Illinois is it’s very collegial and very familial as well.

What I liked about Illinois when I toured was it just seemed like everyone was friends with each other, like people were really willing to help each other out. And I found that to be my experience here in Illinois: everyone’s just so friendly, even the faculty. I’ve definitely felt supported. I think that’s important, being a first-generation law student. It’s nice to have like such a strong support system here in Illinois”
