The education I recieved at the University of Scranton set me up for success, both professionally and academically. After graduating from the University I joined the military and served as an officer. The well rounded education I received allowed me to think outside of the box to solve complex problems. Although many of my peers were probably smarter than me, I was able to see problems from different perspectives and it reflected positively in my fitness reports. After leaving active duty, I decided to attend law school. Again, although most of my peers were probably smarter than me (my LSAT score was below the bottom 25%), the well rounded education Scranton provided allowed me to view problems from different perspectives. Therefore, I have excelled and I am in the top quarter of my class. I highly recommend the University of Scranton. P.S. I had a lot of fun there as an undergraduate and met my spouse there!
