      • Testimony
        1994-1998, Top-notch education with top-notch professors.

        I graduated from W&L in 1998 as did my husband. Every single person who graudated with us is an extremely successful adult and is at the top of his or her career. Amazing university in a beautiful location. Best liberal arts education out there!

      • Testimony
        1973-1976, As Good As It Gets?

        Law School will prove demanding wherever you decide to attend. What makes W&L distinctive among law schools is first and foremost, the relative intimacy of the student's experience. Whether in the classroom or in W&L's many outside-the-classroom programs, students enjoy not only the close attention of professors, but the opportunities for lifelong friendships the class sizes there facilitate. Second, students enjoy the benefits of collegiality only smaller schools typically bring, a collegiality that is enhanced significantly by W&L's Honor System. I'm not sure I locked anything during my 3 years there. Finally, students get to live and study for 3 years in the exquisitely beautiful surroundings of the Shenandoah Valley, with its mountains, back roads, waterfalls and wildflowers. I have never missed a Reunion with my classmates in the past 35 years!
