Alumni Spotlight: Criminal Justice
My name is Robert Pfeifer. I have been attending Lincoln College-Normal since the fall of 2010. My major is Criminal Justice Studies Pre-Law. I am a senior and will be graduating this upcoming May of 2012. My GPA as of now is a 3.85. After this semester, if I were to receive all A’s, I will graduate with a GPA of 3.88. I have been elected into the “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges” program. I am also on the “Dean’s List.” I will be taking the LSAT on February 11, 2012.
After graduation I plan to either enlist in the military as an officer (Air Force preferably or Army) or go directly to law school in the fall of 2012. As of right now, I do not know exactly which law school I want to go to. All I know is that I want to go somewhere that is warm year round. School has always been an important part of my life and after receiving my Bachelors, I plan to further my education by getting my law degree. Even if I were to enlist in the military, I still plan to further my education.
A key concept that I have learned while attending Lincoln College-Normal is that as long as you apply yourself and stay dedicated to your goals, they can be achieved. The mind is a very powerful element in the human body. As long as you stay
determined and believe you can achieve the goals you set in life, they can be achieved. The main reasons I am majoring in Criminal Justice Studies Pre-Law are because I want to make a difference in the world by being a lawyer. I want to be able to use my lawyer skills in order to actually help individuals, not only to make money. I want to be the lawyer that people ask to represent them because they know I will give them my all.
