Danielle VandenBos '07: Attorney

Danielle VandenBos graduated with a double concentration--in Pre-law and Practical and Professional Ethics in Fall 2007. After HCOM, she attended Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco, passing the California bar exam in July 2011. She is currently an attorney in southern California. Danielle recalls how important her HCOM experience was: "The classes I was able to take through HCOM were instrumental in my growth as a student and provided the necessary preparation I would need to find success in law school. I particularly appreciated the real world analogies my professors applied to our course work." She particularly credits an internship with Legal Services for Seniors for insight as to what the day to day life in the career of an attorney would be. As Danielle notes her HCOM professors were equally instrumental, noting that "my professors took a real interest in my educational career and offered assistance and guidance in any way I needed. My transition from college to law school was far more seamless than I would have expected, and a lot of this is owed to the tremendous faculty and staff of CSUMB, and in particular the HCOM department."
