John StoneEdmond, Oklahoma
1. Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in Edmond, Oklahoma.
2. Where did you attend undergrad?
I attended the University of Oklahoma.
3. What degree(s) have you earned?
My degree was Psychology/Pre-Med, but I switched to law school instead of med school.
4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?
I chose OU Law because I love Norman, the campus and the tradition of OU. OU Law is also one of the best law schools in the nation, plus I get three more years of OU football.
5. What is your favorite thing about OU?
My favorite thing about OU is probably the tradition and the atmosphere. The campus is beautiful, the people are extremely friendly and a degree from Oklahoma demands respect wherever you go.
6. What (or who) inspired you to pursue a legal education?
My senior year at OU, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and forced to drop out of school for a semester. Given the opportunity to reassess my future, I opted for law school instead of med school. Also, my sister graduated from OU Law and strongly encouraged me to go to law school.
7. What is an interesting fact about you?
One interesting fact about me is that at one point in my life, I was nationally ranked and considered a professional in the USARPS League (United States of America Rock Paper Scissors League). I won 1,000 dollars in a tournament in Panama City on MTV Spring Break my sophmore year.
