Hot Bench: Collin Hunt '19

Collin Hunt ‘19

What is your favorite word?

“Torn” – Like ’90s one-hit wonder Natalie Imbruglia.  


Where did you grow up? 



Your mom and your girlfriend switch bodies and the only way to switch back is to kiss one of them. Who would you kiss?

Nice try, I’ve seen Freaky Friday, all they would have to do is share a fortune cookie.


Other than his rugged good looks, what is Graham Pittman’s best quality?

Consistency––As far as I can tell, he’s worn one blue and red Patagonia jacket for his entire life. Solid meme guy too.


Favorite pregame song? 

“Like a Prayer,” Madonna.


If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?

Shia LaBeouf. Seems like he has some good ideas.


What’s something you wish you’d known about law school before coming to UVA Law?

When people tell you that no one remembers your embarrassing cold calls, they’re lying. Everyone who was there remembers, and occasionally they’ll remind you. Best to just accept it and not care.


What conspiracy theory do you buy into?

Dinosaurs were tamed and trained by the ancient Egyptians to help them build the pyramids.


If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Houston, Texas (Hope my supervisors will read this!).


What’s your favorite hobby to avoid the stress of law school? 

Shoving it down, and softball.


How many ten-year-olds could you beat in a fight, assuming they came at you in waves of five?

The limit does not exist. If you’re counting, that’s two Lindsay Lohan movie references.


What’s your most interesting two-truths- and-a- lie? (And what’s the lie?)

1. I was in the local newspaper as a young kid for getting into a white Bengal tiger pen and playing with the cubs.

2. I am borderline fluent in Japanese.

3. I’ve been to a bonfire at Billy Joel’s house.

(Why would I tell you guys the lie? That’s the whole point.)


What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

My childhood collie, Gracie. Named after Mark Grace, Chicago Cubs star first baseman of the ’90s.


What’s your favorite thing to do in Charlottesville?

Trivia at Fry’s Spring Station with the rest of the “Very Stable Geniuses.”


Least favorite part about law school?

Cite checks, far and away. Nothing against the people on my journal though, they’re very nice and accommodating.


If you were challenged to a duel, what weapon would you bring?

Thanos’s glove. I don’t see how I could lose.


What’s your spirit animal?

Rhino––I’ve had 3 concussions from slamming my head on things.


What’s your favorite food?

Brick-oven pizza.


Is a hot dog a sandwich?

Definitely in Chicago.


If you could be in the Olympics, which sport would you compete in?

Skeleton, to challenge 2018 South Korean Gold Medalist and personal hero of mine, Yun Sung-Bin.


How many hot dogs do you think you could eat in five minutes?

Preferably zero.


What are you looking forward to after you graduate?

Never having to have the internal debate over whether to pay the extra two dollars for guac.


What are you going to miss most about the law school?

I currently have an outrageous amount of free time for someone who is twenty-five and claims to be a productive member of society.
