“During my time as a philosophy student, I encountered a department brimming with passionate, engaging, diverse, and accessible professors who shared, perhaps, only two things in common: a shameless encouragement of intellectual curiosity and a sincere dedication to their students. No question, it seemed, was insignificant, and no topic was off-limits. This couldn’t have been a more empowering or engaging environment, fostering the organic development of critical analytic skills through the formulation of questions, synthesis of arguments, personal reflection, and utilization of formal logic.
Equally significant has been the way my professors have partnered with me to help me reach my goals after graduation. Since then, I’ve found my professors eager to come to my aid as I applied to law school and needed letters of recommendation written on my behalf. This autumn I will be attending Harvard Law School, an accomplishment I owe in part to the dedicated faculty who helped facilitate my success both as an undergrad and as an alumnus; I couldn’t be more grateful for the tools they’ve given me and their unyielding support.”
