Hi there!  My name is Dylan.  I am a 2L.  I hail from the small town of Memphis, Mo.  I am an outdoors enthusiast and huge music lover. 

I went to Truman State University for undergrad.  I majored in business administration and minored in justice systems.  I was active in the Pre-Law Club all four years.  Because of that, I have heard a ton of advice about preparing for law school.  Seriously, a ton.  Ask me about anything: LSAT prep, choosing a school, beneficial undergrad courses, letters of recommendation, et cetera. 

Mizzou was my first choice because the atmosphere here is very genial.  Let's face it: law school can be a beast.  It is totally manageable but tough.  It is a lot easier when your classmates, your professors, and the staff are actually happy to help you through it.  This is what I have found at Mizzou.  Sure, law students are competitive, but the competition is in no way cutthroat.  Just using that word in the same paragraph as Mizzou seems wrong.

The other selling factor was that I see myself practicing somewhere in Missouri.  I was advised Mizzou is the best for this because many of the other students have the same intention.  Your classmates will become a great network reaching clear across the state.  Missouri's other law schools have, to an extent, their networks more concentrated in their respective city. 

Please contact me with any questions you might have.  I would love to help you and pass on all the advice I received.
