This past week I received in the mail a letter from "Pace University." Usually I throw that stuff out, but I'm glad I opened it. The school is running a giving campaign and you can specify that your donation go directly to the law school! Please keep in mind that alumni giving rates are taken into account for school rankings. Therefore, if 100% of alum gave just $1 each, it would do loads for our rankings! Please consider donating. Thanks!
Please keep me posted. I am pursuing a paralegal certification.
