Why I chose Carolina Law...

Hello Prospective Students!

My name is Dania Haider and I am currently a 1L at Carolina. To understand a little about why I chose Carolina Law, I'll start by telling you a little about myself. I grew up outside of Atlanta and graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008. I majored in International Affairs and Romance Languages and upon graduating was accepted into Teach for America. I spent the next two years teaching fourth grade and it was a fantastic experience.

When the time came to apply to law school, I had no idea where to begin. Initially, I started by looking at the rankings. As my search progressed, other factors made their way onto my "perfect law school checklist". In addition to strong rankings, I wanted to find a school that valued public service, whose professors were accessible and accomplished, a place that provided students with a comfortable learning environment, and a collegial atmosphere. As I began learning more and more about Carolina law, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had checked off my entire list. What really sealed the deal was visiting UNC on Admitted Students Day. It was a great opportunity to learn about everything Carolina Law offers, a chance to interact with current students and professors, and to become familiar with beautiful Chapel Hill.
