Rutgers Mock Trial Association increased my intellectual confidence level. I was always embarrassed to tell people I wanted to be a lawyer, I did not think I was smart enough, or skilled enough to follow through with those aspirations. In my first year of law school I was not imitated to speak up in any of my classes, and I have RUMTA (and Craig of course) to thank. Joining a club was very much out of my comfort zone and I would never change the experience I had with RUMTA or my teammates because it helped shape who I am as adult. My only regret is that I did not join RUMTA sooner.
