Student, Harvard Law School
Brian Kint is a 3L at Harvard Law School. Although he has known he wanted a career in the law since middle school, he took the non-traditional path getting there. He enlisted in the Army during his senior year of high school, partly to earn some money for college and partly to get out of the small rural central Pennsylvania community in which he grew up. He left for basic training two months after he graduated high school. For the next six years, he was an M1A2 Tank Armor Crewman spending time in South Korea, Georgia, and Kentucky.
After he separated from the service in early 2001, Brian bounced around from job to job before finally landing a position as a help desk analyst in the Private Client Services department of a large regional bank. This position gave him the stability he needed to return to school. He enrolled at Georgia State University in downtown Atlanta, working for the bank during the day and attending classes in the evenings. He earned his B.A. in Political Science in May of 2008, and started HLS that fall.
