"It was one of the schools that is tailored to my interest, with a focus on law, society and the common good. And as I looked into it, an admissions advisor told me to apply to the Honors Program."



"I heard it was one of the top five criminal justice schools in the country, so I thought why not go for the top? Plus, I wanted to check out the hustle and bustle of New York City."

"From the beginning, I always wanted to be in law enforcement. Actually, I wanted to be a spy. Later, I thought about becoming a private investigator. I'm really interested in why people do the things they do. I did some research and found out that John Jay was the best at forensic psychology."
