It was a day for Thomas Jefferson School of Law to show its latest group of admitted students what TJSL is all about.  Some have made up their minds about which law school they will attend and some haven’t.

“Congratulations! This is an important first step in your making the proper decision on where you’re going to spend the next three years,” Dean Rudy Hasl told the group of students and parents. “If you say ‘yes’ to TJSL, we will do everything we can to give you the range of support you need to get you through the process and into the profession.”

What makes TJSL different from other law schools? Is it the world-class faculty? Is it the new campus that is the most technologically advanced law school in the world? Is it the strong academic program and supportive culture that is designed to help a student succeed every step of the way in law school and beyond?

It’s all of the above, according to Dean Hasl. “We are here to help you maximize your chances of success,” he said. “We are with you for the long run.”

Another strength of TJSL is its diversity, and Associate Dean Beth Kransberger gathered her admissions team around her to show it – Admissions Director Tim Spearman, Associate Director of Admissions Michelle Allison and Assistant Admissions Director Justin Cruz.

“We want you as students to be as diverse and different from each other as we can make you,” said Dean Kransberger. “You will get a much better education.”

The students had an overwhelmingly positive response to the presentation and tour.

“I’m excited about coming here,” said Daniel Kellermeyer, an admitted student who earned his undergraduate degree at Purdue. “I like how engaged the professors are.”

“The energy of the faculty is amazing,” said UCLA graduate Angelica Chopuryan.

“I’m really enjoying it (the presentation),” said Amber Pourhassanian, a Cal State Long Beach alumna, who says she is “99 percent sure I’m coming here.”

The students couldn’t help but notice the spectacular new campus and how it is designed to create the best possible environment for studying law.

“I’m thoroughly impressed, “said Grant Frick, a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo graduate.  “I can’t describe how great it is,” he said.

“With the new building, we’re creating a campus culture,” said Dean Hasl, ”but we’re also creating a community.”
