1. Why did you choose Loyola?
Loyola offered me the assistance I needed with regards to developing an ideal career path that was fit for me and utilizing the resources necessary for me to do so. The faculty and staff at this school are more than capable of getting me to where I want to be in life both living and working successfully for a greater good.

2. If you could give one piece of advice to a prospective student about the college application process what would it be?
