Interested in Public Interest
"I chose SUCOL because of its community atmosphere. When I first stepped on this campus for an open house, I was welcomed by so many friendly faces and I could picture myself excelling here for the next three years. This college stood out to me among others because it had a multitude of externship and internship opportunities. Another element that stood out to me was their alumni outreach and network. I have met so many great alumni before I attended this institution that have excelled in their fields of interest and that have gained great knowledge from this institution that I knew I had to be a part of!"

Interested in the intersection of politics and the law, as well as Public Interest Law.
"I chose Syracuse University College of Law for a number of reasons. It began with my experience during Admitted Students Day, which truly left an impression on me. Every faculty and staff member I encountered made me feel like they were genuinely interested in my success. Syracuse Law felt like a place where I would succeed not only because of the faculty and staff, but also because of all of the resources available to students, such as 1L tutoring services. Another aspect of Syracuse Law that factored into my choice was the incredible externship opportunities that would be available to me as a SUCOL student. Having these opportunities was important to me because they would allow me to gain hands-on work experience while still learning about the law. Overall, I could not be happier with my decision and I am so proud to be a part of SUCOL!"

"Why not Syracuse? But in all seriousness, I took a tour here with the Pre-Law society at my undergraduate institution and I fell in love. The school itself is welcoming and spacious while also having the air of productivity. The professors here care deeply for the students, there are so many opportunities that I had never known were available to law students (like study abroad and dual degrees!) and the administrators are some of the friendliest individuals I have ever met. I wanted a law school that I could spend hours doing work in the library and feel as though I was home- and that is exactly what I have now at Syracuse."
