Hi Everyone! My name is Vikkie and I’m a 2L here at Mizzou Law. I’m originally from San Antonio, Texas and
attended Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. I’m a nontraditional
student who took the winding road to law school. I graduated high school in 2001 and over 14 years studied both on
campus and online for my bachelor’s degree. Throughout that time I worked fulltime
in the financial industry and am married with three amazing little ones ages 5, 3 and 1.

The decision to change my career path was a daunting one, however the choice in law schools
was crystal clear. After meeting with admissions and talking to some of the current students, I
knew in my heart that Mizzou Law was where I wanted to be. You’ll hear it said over and over,
because it’s true: the faculty and staff at Mizzou Law truly care about your success. The
atmosphere here is one of community and camaraderie, with a dash of healthy competition.
Between the student organizations, professional associations, journals and events; there’s
always something going on, making it easy for you to get plugged into the school and
community.

I would love to talk to you more about Mizzou Law and why I think this is the best place to earn
your law degree. It doesn’t matter if you are fresh out of school or have taken the scenic route,
you’ll find that Mizzou Law will be your best choice for law school!
