Sydney Creel, 2L

Centralia, MO

Undergrad Institution:
University of Missouri



Hi everyone! My name is Sydney Creel and I am currently a 2L at Mizzou Law. I grew up in Centralia, Missouri, which is about 25 minutes north of Columbia. I began my undergrad at Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri where I played softball, then transferred to Mizzou in August of 2016 to finish my undergrad in Psychology in just three years. I graduated in May of 2017 and came straight through to Mizzou Law at the start of Fall 2017.

Law school was not always on my mind as an adult. I had always joked as a little kid that I wanted to be a lawyer, but when I got to college, there was no law or pre-law program at CMU. I started out as a criminal justice and psychology double major, but changed my mind and went into a major in nursing. After quickly realizing that nursing was not for me, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. After some soul-searching, I realized that law was the only field I could see myself in.

I made the decision to attend Mizzou Law because of the family-oriented atmosphere. There is not one person in this building that would not do anything in their power to help you succeed, and that is what really drew my attention to this institution.

If you have any questions concerning Mizzou Law, or just law school in general (admission process, applications, the LSAT etc.), please do not hesitate to contact me!
