 “I couldn't have chosen a better field of undergrad study to prepare for law school. . . . Philosophy is always in the background (and often the focus) of our discussions. I feel much more comfortable with this material than do many of my colleagues who studied business, English or political science, though their degrees come from Princeton, Cornell, Stanford and the like.”

--Crystal Dawn Love, law student, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
