Hi, everyone! It is great to see that you are interested in KU Law. My name is Jake Schmidt, and I am a 3L from Atchison, Kansas. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.A. in economics. The time I spent in Lawrence during undergrad made me fall in love with the community, so much so that I signed up for three more years at KU Law!

As a student in the L.E.A.D. program — an accelerated program that allows students to graduate with a B.A. and J.D. in six years — law school was always the overarching goal during my undergraduate career. However, as the first person in my entire family to even consider law school, my time in the program started out fraught with worry. Fortunately, every concern melted away as I came to know the students and faculty of KU Law. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming that Green Hall soon became a home away from home.

Two years ago, I was in your shoes. I know exactly how much stress comes with your upcoming law school decision. It can be truly overwhelming at times, but do not let that stop you from making the best decision for you. If there is anything I can do to help, please do not hesitate to contact me! Additionally, I encourage you to sign up for a tour of Green Hall. Click the “Visit Us” button on this page; it will be worth it!
