In studying history, we examine the human condition and how people react to different things at different times. And being able to understand it on a large scale is helpful when dealing with things on a smaller scale. I’m planning on going to law school and I’ll research a lot of cases. Many of the same tools I’ll need for that, I’ve learned in my history classes. It’s definitely going to be crucial for my law school pursuits.
