Meet our Peer Advisors



Kirsten Caballero



Hi my name is Kirsten Caballero. I graduated with a B.A. in politics and a B.A. in legal studies. I was heavily involved in the pre-law organizations and resources on campus prior to graduating. I am currently studying for the LSAT and I plan on applying to law school in the fall. If you are interested in learning more about what UCSC has to offer in regards to the pre-law path please feel free to ask me any questions!


Fun fact: I enjoy hanging out with my dogs, playing drums, and jigsaw puzzles.
