  • "The faculty at St. Scholastica taught me skills that are important for any job and essential to success in law school: research, writing, communication and analysis, to name a few. The variety of classes I took and the professors I learned from helped me to consider different perspectives on historical and political issues, and allowed me to explore my own areas of interest. Because of the skills and experiences I received at St. Scholastica, I was able to confidently transition from my undergraduate education to my current pursuit of a law degree."
