As a single parent, it was extremely important for me to attend a school that was accommodating to students with special circumstances. I feel like every student comes into law school from different areas of life, and I was really pleased at how well MSU welcomed and accommodated me, and my personal situation.

Morgan graduated Salutatorian from Gilmer High School in 2011 and went to Baylor University for undergraduate studies. “I am a single mom to a five year old boy, Kaden, who started Kindergarten this year. I grew up on a farm so I love everything outdoors and all animals. I've always wanted to experience life outside of Texas and I can't wait to experience a real winter with snow this year in Michigan,” she said.

Morgan plans to practice Sports & Entertainment Law. “I would eventually like to be General Counsel for a professional sports team, and possibly even become an agent for individual athletes,” she said.

To prepare for the LSAT, Morgan completed a three-month online LSAT prep course, which included each section of the LSAT broken down into sections, and ten LSAT practice exams. To prepare for law school she took a logic course, and a research and writing course, which were recommended by her pre-law advisor. “I met with my Pre-Law advisor about potential schools with a Sports and Entertainment Law specialty certification,” she said. From there I used MSU Law’s Admissions page, and also researched available specialty areas at MSU Law.” 

She found herself falling for MSU Law after attending the Campus Visit day. “Getting to meet some of the current students and faculty and staff really gave me a good idea of what it would be like to attend MSU for law school,” she said. “I absolutely loved the school and the area around the school, and I knew this would be my home the next year. During my visit I got to talk with several current students who were planning to go into the same area of law that I want to practice, and who already have some experience in the field, which really excited me about the potential possibilities if I attended MSU.”

“The Admitted Candidate Visit program was awesome. I knew within the first hour of the day that MSU was where I would be for law school,” Morgan said. “The current students, and faculty and staff were extremely inviting, and very welcoming. I truly felt at home during my visit and couldn't wait to officially commit to MSU.

 “My interactions with everyone at MSU were excellent. I really loved the student caller because they made me feel like MSU really put in the extra effort to make me feel wanted and pursued as a potential incoming student,” Morgan said. “As a single parent, it was extremely important for me to attend a school that was accommodating to students with special circumstances. I feel like every student comes into law school from different areas of life, and I was really pleased at how well MSU welcomed and accommodated me, and my personal situation.”
