Name: Dylan Herts
Hometown: Beachwood, OH
Class Year: 2013
High School: Hawken School
Major: Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought and Computer Science
Favorite Class: Law & Political Emergency - for me, that was the essential course as part of LJST. It was ten people, in a room reading, arguing, and responding about executive powers for a full semester. Given all that intense discussion, we all learned a ton, and made some friends too (even if one's sort of a fascist).
Ideal Date: I prefer bananas, to be honest.
Spirit Animal: I'll put sloth. I have almost nothing in common with them, but I owe the species for ridiculing them in Gad's a lot. Those poor sloths deserve better.
If You Could Visit Any Country in the World, Where Would You Go: Big Sur. I know it's in California, but it feels like the edge of the earth. The mountains just crumble into the sea for miles and miles; I drove along the coastline while looking at colleges back in high school, but I'd love to do it again with someone special.
If You Could Have One Super Power What Would it Be: No paper cuts. Done.
Dream Job: A combination of Lawrence Lessig and Sam Seaborn - fix the DMCA, save Fair Use, etc.
Favorite TV Show/Movie: Hm, I think it might just be an even tie between The Wire, The West Wing, and Game of Thrones.
Relationship Status: In a Relationship
Extracurriculars: Mr. Gad's House of Improv, The Amherst Student, IT Specialist, Teaching Assistant/Peer Tutor for CompSci
Craziest Thing You've Ever Done: A few months ago on a trip to Israel, I ate a Habanero Pepper straight off the vine. Right after our tour guide warned us for five minutes that it was a terrible idea. Man, was she right.
