University of MIssouri
Political Science and Economics
My name is Callie Haslag and I am a 1L here at Mizzou Law. I grew up in a large family on a small farm outside of Tipton, Missouri. I graduated from Mizzou in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in both Political Science and Economics and a minor in Business.
For me, the choice to attend Mizzou Law was easy after I toured the facility and met with a few of the people from the school. I was so impressed by the interactions I had with the admissions office, professors, and current students while visiting. At Mizzou Law, you aren’t just a student number, you are valued for who you are and what you are capable of achieving. The environment is both friendly and challenging, which is a hard environment to find. The professors here have an “open door” policy. This means they are available for questions about course material or life in general all throughout the week, not just for scheduled office hours.
I also love that at Mizzou, while great importance is placed upon academics, students are encouraged to participate in volunteer opportunities and student organizations. We are learning not only the theory behind law, but more importantly, we are learning how to put our knowledge to work outside of the classroom. For me, being prepared to be successful in the workforce once I graduate was vitally important in making my decision. What could be better than getting an exceptional education while enjoying your time in law school? –Not much.
I would like to congratulate you on your decision to go to law school! It has been such a rewarding decision for me thus far, and I trust you will have the same experience. The process of applying to law school can be a little complicated, but we are here to help you along your journey. I was in your shoes this time last year, and I understand that it can be intimidating. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you have about the Mizzou Law or the overall process in general. Overall, Mizzou Law is a top notch school with a great atmosphere.
