Coursework in Elizabethtown's History Department has been instrumental in developing the skills necessary to gain admittance to Penn State Dickinson School of Law, which I will be attending in the fall.  Learning how to shape cogent arguments, summarize complex topics in a concise manner, and write clearly and coherently are all important skills in the legal profession.  Additionally, reading comprehension is a major component of the Law School Admission Test, and history provides one of the best opportunities to analyze texts and critically evaluate arguments.  Finally, studying history allowed me to improve all of these skills while learning about a topic I greatly enjoy, and Elizabethtown's diverse course offerings allowed me to focus on my own specific areas of interest in the field.
