Michael Hoffman, Class of 2018

"Law school is a significant commitment, and facing a mountain of debt can be daunting when selecting which university to attend. Seeing the investment that the FSU College of Law was willing to put into my future with a generous scholarship brought me more than just peace of mind - it was exactly the vote of confidence I needed to light my path toward becoming an attorney. Florida State is one of the most inclusive and eye opening institutions I have ever had the good fortune of being a part of, and I have never second guessed my decision to come here."
