Starting a new tradition for the Xi charge site we will be posting one or two jounral entries from our seniors as they graduate Hobart and move on to bigger and better things. The first entry this year is from Brother Swist who will be attending law school in the Fall:
During my junior year at Hobart College I completely committed to the plan to attend law school. During that same time I was living with four other members of Theta Delta Chi, Charlie Hale, Mike Garland, Keith Forman, and Mike Moulton. During this year while I was preparing for not only the LSAT’s, but also the entire application process as a whole, my brothers at TDX were instrumental in my eventual success. They gave me my space when I needed it to study, but they also kept me mentally healthy and balanced. When I was too pre-occupied and stressed they would be the first people to pull me out of my funk by getting me out of the room and into the limelight that is Hobart College. With their help I did very well on my LSAT’s and was eventually accepted into a number of law schools.
The first school I was accepted into was Hofstra Law, where Brother Pauly Liggieri, from SUNY Binghamton, currently attends. Furthermore, Hofstra offered me a large merit based scholarship. After I was accepted into Hofstra I was accepted into the law programs at Catholic University, Villanova University, Penn State University, Drexel University, DePaul University, Loyola Chicago University, and Syracuse University. Furthermore, I was waitlisted at Northeastern University, Temple University, and Notre Dame University. No matter where I end up attending I owe a lot to my brothers from all Charges of TDX. Brother Liggieri has given me advice over the last three years, and I cannot say thank you enough to him personally. Furthermore, to the members of the Xi Charge, especially the alpha pledge class, I want to say thank you for keeping me focused at times and hopelessly unfocused when I needed it most.
Once again congrats to Brother Swist and good luck next year at law school.
