“I chose to attend Illinois Law not only because of the academics, but because of the camaraderie and support I felt when I did my tour here at the school.

When I did the tour, I was concerned with such a high ranking school that there would be intense competition all around. I was reassured that this was not the case, and that people support each other while also challenging themselves simultaneously. This was something I was really looking for in a school. I wasn’t entirely certain that I’d get into U of I, and I was fully prepared to go to other schools in Chicago, but when I did I was overjoyed as this is my alma mater and a school I have loved for so many years. It has given me more than I could ever give it back.”
