I don't know what I want to do with my legal career yet. I hope to get litigation experience, find an area of the law I love, and have a fulfilling career.

What do you like most about working for the Admissions Office?
Working for Admissions has been wonderful because I love getting to know people who are coming to Yale, or considering coming to Yale, in such a close setting. I love answering calls from admitted students, talking with them, hearing their worries, and talking through any hesitancies they might have before choosing Yale.
