“To me, ‘unusual combinations’ reflects the unique aspect of Allegheny’s curriculum that allows you to pursue all of your goals and interests regardless of how different they are,” says Nathan Ehrmann. A Pre-Law student with a double major in Political Science and History and a double minor in Chemistry and Italian Culture/History (which he self-designed), Nathan is clearly a student who has taken advantage of this aspect.
Inspired by family members who are attorneys, Nathan’s goal is to attend law school and pursue a career in corporate law. He claims that taking a wide variety of classes that interested him, along with building lasting relationships with professors, has helped to prepare him for both the content and workload of being a law student and having a law-related career.
