Admission Fellows are current law students who are available to speak with you about their experiences and answer your questions about our campus culture, classroom expectations, and more. Below you will discover each of their backgrounds, their contact information, and their law student diaries.
Learn what it’s like to be a Seattle U Law student by reading journal entries of the Admission Fellows. Travel through the years with these students as they share not only their confidences and anxieties, but their accomplishments and success strategies. Their thoughts and reflections cover everything from classroom experiences to juggling commitments to making the most of their legal education.
New entries will be available periodically as students find time to squeeze their updates into their busy lives.
