"I first met Dean Ortiz as a first-year law student at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, where she was Dean of Students. Since then, Dean O (as everyone fondly calls her) has been an invaluable resource to me both professionally and personally. For example, her writing tutorial helped me formulate an action plan for tackling law school exams. She guided me through one of the most challenging periods of my educational career, and I attribute my success to her outstanding advising. Almost three years after I graduated, I still call Dean O whenever I have questions about my career path. I am excited that she will be sharing her valuable knowledge on how to succeed in law school (and pass the bar!) with a wider audience, because it is not enough to just get into law school, it's all about what you do while you're there."
