My name is Sam Thomas and I am a 1L from Kansas City, Missouri. I attended Macalester College, a small liberal arts college in St. Paul, Minnesota, for my undergraduate years. While there, I studied economics and played baseball. Law school has been part of my plan for a long time and I knew I wanted to come back to Missouri when I was done with my undergraduate years. The University of Missouri School of Law gave me an excellent chance to come back to Missouri and study law.

During the admissions process, I was impressed by the friendliness of the admissions staff and professors at Mizzou Law. I was entirely uncertain where I would go to law school when I started the application process. After visiting Mizzou, I crossed every other school off the list. Once I arrived, it became clear that the amiability I was greeted with at the time of my visit was not merely a recruiting tactic, but a genuine reflection of the quality of the people here.

I have been studying at the law school for a short time. But, please do not hesitate to reach out if there is any assistance I can provide during the law school admissions process.
