3L  |  Kansas City, KS  |  University of Colorado  |

Hello! First let me welcome you to the University of Kansas School of Law. My name is Bradley Thomas, and I am a 3L from Kansas City, Kansas. I received a bachelor’s in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology from the University of Colorado in Boulder. I also completed a Master of Business Administration from the University of Missouri, Kansas City, focusing on finance.

I am what is generally referred to as a nontraditional student. After graduating from CU in 2006, I worked for various chemistry and biology companies throughout the Kansas City metro area. After a significant amount of debate, I decided to leave a job that I loved at Children’s Mercy Hospital to attend KU Law. Although I still miss the bench work, I do not regret my choice at all.

After applying to seven law schools, KU made the final decision easy. Every interaction I had with the faculty, students and administration was so far beyond my expectations that it felt like a conversation with family, instead the decathlon-like runaround I experienced elsewhere. The academic reputation of KU and the quality of the practical experiences simply sealed the decision.

Like all law students, I am still a work in progress, but the environment in Green Hall and the communal support of the faculty and student body continually remind me that KU Law was the best choice I could have made.
