Miranda Walker imagined she could be a lawyer one day, but didn’t see a path to becoming one.
Then she came to the University of Baltimore.
By taking advantage of UBalt’s Law School Early Entry Option, the B.S. in Business Administration student was able to start law school during her senior year. She graduated from her bachelor’s degree program in spring 2019 while finishing her first semester of law school.
“Without UBalt offering this program, I wouldn’t be where I am,” Walker said. “Without the school’s commitment to helping working students succeed, I would not have been able to keep up the standard of work needed. The school offers services both early in the day, in the evening and online so that no matter when you work, you can manage to take classes and work.”
Walker appreciates UBalt’s urban setting as a world apart from the suburban community where she grew up.
“I can park at the school and within a 15-minute walk can find all sorts of culture,” she said. “I like the chance to take advantage of the city life, while living in the quieter suburbs.”
