About Kat Mediavilla
Hi there! My name is Kat Mediavilla and I am a 1L here at Mizzou Law. I’m from Kansas City, MO, and graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in both Accounting and Finance. Attending law school was never an aspiration of mine until my junior year of college when I took a business law course. I was immediately intrigued by the legal profession and knew it would allow me to connect with and help others on a more personal level than if I had pursued a career elsewhere.
When it came to applying for law school, Mizzou was my main choice for many reasons. I grew up in a big Tiger household, with both my parents and sister having been students. I frequently visited Columbia to attend football games, visit my sister, and to play high school lacrosse tournaments on Stankowski Field. Not only was Mizzou a place where I felt comfortable and at home, but it’s a place full of fond memories with great people. All of these factors, paired with MU’s ability to cultivate passionate leaders, exceptional students, and a genuine community, automatically made Mizzou Law my top choice.
My time at Mizzou Law has already introduced me to wonderful and supportive friends, passionate and genuine teachers, and an abundance of opportunities to grow as an aspiring law student. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have about Mizzou Law or your law school journey!
