TJSL Hosts Admitted Students at Campus Event
June 21, 2013
TJSL hosted a group of admitted students the weekend of June 21 to give them a chance to get familiar with the law school. Many have decided to enroll, some are still undecided.
There were tours and a Q&A session on Friday the 21st as well as a morning-afternoon program on Saturday the 22nd. The students got to meet and hear from faculty, staff members, current students and alumni.
Taelor Cole (1L) led one of the tours on Friday with a group of students who were impressed the TJSL’s modern and innovative campus.
“I love this building – it’s amazing,” said Diana Hernandez, a Florida International University graduate who is “pretty sure” she will attend TJSL. “I really, really like it.”
Irma Anderson, who is definitely coming to TJSL, is a nurse by profession, but has dreamed of becoming a lawyer since she was 16.
“It’s been a long time coming, and there have been lots of turns,” she says, “but it feels really great to be here at TJSL.”
Liam Hoyt majored in political science at the University of Utah and he is very interested in TJSL’s sports law and entertainment law programs.
“This is my first time here,” Hoyt said. “And the school seems really innovative.”
Sacha Tatum majored in Poly-Sci at California Baptist University in Riverside and will be part of TJSL’s Intellectual Property Fellowship.
“I love the San Diego area, the building is beautiful and the staff is very helpful,” she said.
In addition to a luncheon in TJSL’s beautiful 8th Floor Conference Room, the admitted students participated in an Academic Support exercise to give them a good idea of the types of support services that are available to students to help them succeed.
