The September edition of your Alumni E-Brief





 September 2017
Alumni EBrief
first-year student fun facts

The 231 students who entered the law school this fall come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. There are nine students with over a 3.9 GPA, 21 graduate degrees, including two Ph.D.s, and they hail from 26 states and roughly ten countries. They speak 19 languages and their professions run the gamut from patent agents, to veterans of the armed forces, to hula hoop dancers.  The one thing they have in common is that all of them chose Chicago-Kent!

If you know someone interested in joining next year's class, let them know the first-year application process begins after September 15, 2017 and the application fee is being waived. Contact the Admissions Office for more information.
