Hi all, my name is Jon Hansen and I'm going to Law school at Pitt next year. I thought it would be nice to have a thread where all the Pitt 1L's could have a meet and greet and get to know each other a little better. So I guess I'll start off...
So my name is Jon Hansen, not spelled like the teen sensation Hanson, but like the alternative artist Beck whose last name actually is Hansen. I graduated high school from Peters Township which is in the 'burbs south of Pittsburgh. My undergrad was at the University of South Carolina, it was nice to thaw out from the chilly weather for a couple of years. I majored in Chemical Engineering and in the small amount of time when I wasn't studying or in class I was involved with my fraternity (haha yeah right who am I kidding, that should really be the other way around).
But I guess I couldn't stay away from the Pittsburg forever so I'm heading back. I was really torn between Pitt and Emory, but I really think I'm more of a State U kind of guy, and the difference in price tags doesn't hurt either.
I really like music, The Shins and Radiohead are my two favorite bands. In my spare time I like to cycle. This weekend I'm riding from Columbia to Charleston and at the end of the school year I'm biking across the State of Florida (both for Push America, check it out at http://www.pushamerica.org/
, really great stuff).
Well I guess that's about it for me, can't wait to hear from the rest of you!
